In My Mailbox 28/8/11

In My Mailbox is a fabulous weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to celebrate the wonderful books received into our houses. BOOKS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER

For Review from the gorgeous Vivienne at Serendipity Reviews:
I have read the first book The Hollow ( review here) and have the second book The Haunted on my shelf so this is the perfect reason to bump them up my reading pile - I am really looking forward to getting some answers here [ : D ]

 For review from Amazon Vine:
(I seriously squealed when this was on the list - soul-mates need I say more)

For Review:

(I hadn't heard of this one before it came through the door although I am rather intrigued after reading the synopsis)

( I have the first book on my shelf and again this gives me the perfect reason to get round to reading them both together)

For Review by one of my (now) Year 9 pupils:

(this series sounds fantastic - I will be reading it too)

( my year 9 pupil has already read and reviewed the first 2 books for me (here) and (here). I know he is looking forward to finding out where the story is going.

So another wonderful book filled week. It really does make everything better. I have spent the latter part of this week totally immersed in books helping me cope with 'real' life lol.

Hope everyone has a good week, I am back in school on Thursday and actually looking forward to the calm of my library. HUGS
