In My Mailbox #11-2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren giving me the oppurtunity to thank all the generous people that donate books to the school library.

Also the book buying madness induced by Jenny from Wondrous Reads.

This is one heck of a mailbox so be prepared.


Donated by the fabulous Michelle of Clover Hill Book Reviews

(I really wanted this book for the library for ages)
(my copy for the library returned among these beauties)
(again this is going to the Upper Library - I cant wait to see it fly off the shelves)
(sounds really good - passing to the Upper Library as an older age range)

Donated by the lovely Vivienne of Serendipity. Viv won 2 copies and kindly donated this one.

(Sounds so good *looks at TBR pile*)

From the publisher for a little something planned later in the year { : D

(looks at TBR pile again)

Donated by the lovely Susie Day who is also welsh and understands my welshisms on twitter <3

(the poor kids have had the first 2 books and we havent been able to get this one *happy dances)
(this is so funny. I actually prefer the layout of the US copy. Review here)
(I cant wait to read this. Shhh dont tell the kids I am reading it first)

Donated by the fantastic SC Ransom who I think may just have superpowers { : D

(keeping tight reign on this one - these tend to dissappear *glares at pupils*)

Donated by the wonderful Luisa Plaja. One of the nicest people in the entire world <3

Donated by the fab Hayley Long herself - when she found out we needed books for the library she offerd these <3

(shhh *whispers* these are going to be read by me too)


I am definately putting this down to Jenny from Wondrous Reads for encouraging me to go to The Works

(so pretty)
(had these on my wishlist for ages)
(another I have been wanting for ages)

Tempting Asda offers - the trolley goes there automatically I have no choice {: D

(I am on the verge of giving up on this series - I need an ending)
(love this cover - hoping it is better than the Wicked series as I detested the ending of that one)
(again I was swayed by the cove not realising it is the 2nd in the series)


(cover so pretty - I love pretty covers if you hadn't noticed)

Finished copy from the Publisher:

(saeriously love this book - I just cannot get it out of my head. It is staying in my permenant collection. Review here)

So that is it for this weeks mega IMM.
Huge thanks to you all for the donations they are really appreciated.
Hugs you all
