In My Mailbox #8-2011 aka Christmas in the Mail [ : D ]

In My Mailbox is hosted by the lovely Story Siren every week.

This week has been the most fantastic book week EVER.
I am only showing a bit of what I had as I went nuts on the book buying this week and it is going to have to last me for the rest of the month. Thank goodness I am back in the library on Monday; still surrounded by books without spending anything, lol.




For Review (No I can't believe it either) Much screaming and happy dancing took place [ : D ]



For Review: I felt really really bad requesting this on Twitter - I don't know how people have the courage too. Anyway I am eternally grateful that I have it. Started it last night and all I can say at the moment is WOW. I really want my pupils to read this series, so I will be taking it into the library when I have read it, and hopefully tracking down a copy of The Body Finder for them { no budget left until May :( }




Pre-Order I had totally forgotten about:

(the last book of the series - can't wait to find out how this one ends)


Swapped via RISI



From UK Book Tours - Lynsey you are totally AWESOME


So there we have a small snippet of the books I received this week. I will be doing the rest next week - squeezing every last drop of book goodness out of half term. Apologies for the site being down this week - but now we have the lovely domain name Asamum Booktopia with loads of thanks and hugs to Susan K Mann for sorting out all the technical stuff (beautiful and intelligent).

I have also been under the weather this week and not been able to comment much - I am hoping to make up for that today {2nd day of antibiotics, feeling slightly better if it wasn't for the blisters on the roof of my mouth :( } Also debating writing a personal post about why I HATE February, you let me know what you think. Thanks for sticking with me - you guys ROCK [ : D ]

  5. Great IMM!! If you're up for a borrow/swap of Desires of the Dead...I've got The Body Finder which you're welcome to have...I'd love to read and return DOTD in exchange? No pressure - just pop me an email....hate seeing books sitting on my shelf after I've read them knowing others can read them is far better :)

  13. Where She Went! Hunger! BLOOD MAGIC! Virals! It's like you received all my top want-to-reads for 2011... Also Desires of The Dead is awfully good - it has a lovely feeling of old school crime thriller about it.
