In My Mailbox #14-11

In My Mailbow is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. This weeks mailbox has special thanks to Kirsty at The Overflowing Library, Sya from The Mountains of Instead, Lyndsey from Heaven, Hell and Purgatory Book Reviews and Susan from Susan K Mann. Thank you for feeding my book addiction and the school library [ ; D ]

For Review:

Gifted from the lovely Kirsty of The Overflowing Library
I was supposed to go to The London Book Fair - I even had permission from school to attend but couldn't afford the train fair - so Kirsty kindly got me this signed book <3 - Thank goodness for friends

Gifted from the wonderful Sya at The Mountains of Instead

I read The Chosen One (click link for review) last year - Carol Lynch Williams writes such difficult topics with such insight that althoug I am sure this will take me out of my comfort zone I HAVE to read it

I popped into Tesco to pick up some things for the Librarian end of term get together and came out with 2 books as well - curse you BOGOF [ : D ]

Sounds really good for my MG feature

For an event - thank you Atom

Some fabulous books for both me and the school library. Off to catch up on commenting. I love your blogs <3 Thanks for visiting mine *hugs*


  1. So glad the book arrived!! A bit jealous you found Fire in a charity shop. I think I should go trawl around some here and see what I can find

  2. Great books there. I'm also really jealous that you found Fire in a charity shop, I've heard that's a brilliant book. I agree too, Tesco's BOGOF is evil and tricksy!

  3. The Truth About Celia Frost really does sound fab. Sorry to hear you couldn't go to the London Book Fair - train fares are *so* ridiculous these days.

    Those Lois Duncan titles are giving me high school flashbacks. She's pretty awesome, as I recall. :D

  4. I've got Divine Freaks too - so looking forward to it. Great collection of new books.

  5. Wow that's a LOT of books! The Missing looks interesting. I've not seen that before. Might have to take a trip to Tesco later :-)

    Is Fire the next book on from Graceling?

  6. Fab books this week, Divine Freaks and The Truth About Celia Frost both sound fab, I hope you enjoy :D
