In My Mailbox #12-2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren where I give thanks to the the fabulous people that donate to my library, give me books or encourage me to go buy them (what I shouldn't be thanking you for emptying my purse, lol).

Huge thanks to Vivienne at Serendipity, Kirsty at The Overflowing Library, Jesse at Books for Teens, Becky at The Bookette and Caroline at Portrait of a Woman. Along with all the fabulous authors and publishers that totally rock.


Donated by the gorgeous Vivienne of Serendipity

(I really liked the way in which depression was handled in this book and it would really benefit a few pupils)
(we already have one of the Tales of Terror series in the library - the pupils love it)

Donated by the wonderful Caroline of Portrait of a Woman

(we have the rest of the series which flies off the shelves)

Swapped one of my own books in order to get this for the library

(interested to see how this one goes)

Won for the library from Books for Teens

Won for the library from The Bookette

(these all sound so good)

Donated by the super generous and lovely Kirsty of The Overflowing Library

(this is a fantastic book and I am so excited to be able to give the pupils a chance to read it thanks to Kirsty)


For Review:

(the cover alone makes me love it)

Tesco BOGOF madness - this is why I should shop online

(I read the first one before I started blogging)
(I have read a couple of John Green's books and loved them plus the new cover is gorgeous)

For Review:

(All I can say is SQUEEEEEE)

For Review from the wonderful Kirsty of The Overflowing Library

(the 10 year old and I are reading the 1st one together - possibly a joint review { : D )
(so pretty)

Another extraordinary book week for me and the library - I am so lucky to know such generous people and my library and I are extremely grateful.
