In My Mailbox #16-11

Hosted by the lovely Story Siren, this meme allows me to give thanks for all the lovely books I obtain.
I am truly grateful for every single one.
For those of you that know me I actually squee when opening book parcels and have been known to hug/kiss a book - just ask my girls lol.

From the Library where a big argument ensued as to the classification of these books - can you believe they had them down as adult???

On loan from the lovely Laura of Scattered Figments - you should go checkout her blog [ : D ]

Gifted for the school library by the most wonderful Viv of Serendipity
The books tackles bullying and as I run an anti-bullying week Viv thought this would be a great addition. The lovely author Bryony Allen has also been in touch to see if she can do anything for anti-bullying week. THANK YOU BOTH.
If anyone has suggestions for this years anti-bullying week that generally takes place in October please let me know.

For Review:

(swoon I just adore the cover and can't wait to read it there have been some fabulous reviews and interviews around the blogosphere for this one)

On loan from the utterly awesome Jesse of Books for Teens (he really is truly brill and does a weekly round-up of reviews which is invaluable <3 )

For Review:

Remember I told you at the start of the IMM that I squee/kiss/hug books well this was one of them and can you blame me


Ok so these aren't books but I thought I would include them - for some totally unknown reason I missed out on these when they first were on TV. I was introduced to Black Books a few weeks ago by my lovely Year 12 Librarian that Guest Reviewed on Friday (go check it out here and leave him a comment please as he really did do a terrific job with his review). When I was tweeting about an episode the other night I was so surprised at how many of the people I speak to actually watch and love it. As the box set was only £6.99 on Amazon I thought I would treat myself to entertainment in order to tackle the ever increasing ironing mountain lol. Then the lovely Keris Stainton suggested I would also like Spaced and away you go. I actually bought myself something that was not a book lol.

As the fab Kenneth @kennethwilsonuk tweeted me a pic of his fantastic English breakfast this morning I am now absolutely starving and craving breakfast [ : D ] will possibly have to postpone the commenting catch-up until I have eaten lol.
