In My Mailbox 27/11/11

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (please remind me to put my link up because I always forget *doh*) in order to share the beautiful books that cross our threshold.


(loved the first one (review HERE) - need to get my hands on the second one Exile)

(all I can say is total SQUEEE)

(the fabulous Andy from The Pewter Wolf is going to be guest reviewing this one for me <3)

(the amazing Beth of The Pieces of Me is going to be reviewing this one)

(I have been waiting for this one for ages - really looking forward to reading it)

(the 9yo is reviewing this one - she has started it already and keeps sniggering away to herself) 

(the title changed from the initial Sea Hearts - my wonderful Year 13 Librarian is reviewing this one. He is really into folklore so this one was just made for him to read. He has also done a fantastic presentation for me about folklore to use in the library lessons - scheduled for February) 


Crossed by Ally Condie
( adored Matched Review HERE - so far I have seen mixed opinions about the sequel around the blogosphere - I need to read this soon to make up my own mind)

And I have a confession. I gave in and bought a kindle. I had some gift vouchers and discovered that nectar points can be converted into Amazon vouchers, so I got one. To be honest I still prefer the real thing, book are so much better but there are just some that I have been seeing around the blogs that aren't available in the UK in any other format.  Seriously you guys are so NAUGHTY making me covet these books [ ; D ] <3

Here are the books I got for it:



(I used this one on the Greek Mythology in YA presentation)

(Lynsey of Narratively Speaking is so to blame for me getting these [ ; D ] 

Nearly all of these were under £1 *swoon*

Have a great week *hugs*


  1. I so want to read To Be A Cat...seeing lots of bloggers getting it. Must. Be. Patient.

  2. Yay indie books! :) Enjoy the Kindle! I love mine. Still prefer paper books but the Kindle is fantasmic.
    Once Upon A Time

  3. I have a Kindle, i love it and it is handy for reading samples of books before i but them. I still read normal books as well. You got some great books.

  4. Awesome books this week! I really want to read Sea Hearts/The Brides of Rollrock Island and Crossed! I also really love the cover for Muse! I hope that you enjoy your books!

    You can check out my IMM HERE!

    Claire :)

  5. I also finally got a Kindle this month Emma! I'm loving the fact that I'll be able to read more Indie authors' work because of it. :)

    Lovely selection of books and I think it's brilliant that your kids are involved in reading with you.

    The Word Fiend

  6. You got a nice variety of books this week. I hope you enjoy your Kindle. I know I like mine.

    My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  7. Kindles are so usefully sometimes! I'm sure you will love it but yes I think that they can't beat the real thing! Anyway you got some great books, jealous of Enthralled! I really wanna read that one! :)

  8. A big yay on all the awesome books! You sure got a lot of interesting looking ones. But even more yay on the Kindle! :D That's so awesome. I too prefer the real thing, but Kindle is so convenient! Especially for me in Sweden. Absolutely love it. I actually just ordered a tablet for myself which should be here tomorrow, so I'm really excited!

    And you got some super nice ebooks! Cant' wait to pick up my own copies of Solstice and The Deepest Cut myself! Really excited. :D Enjoy!

    My IMM!

  9. That is a whole load of books. Looking forward to reading Crossed and Dark Parties. I've not given in to a kindle yet. x
