In My Mailbox the first

Here are the books that I've had into the house this week. Sorry about the poor quality photos! I've seen these IMM posts everywhere and felt like joining in this week, especially as I've had a fair few books recieved this week. IMM is hosted by The Story Siren every week...

First up, my charity shop finds:

Untamed by PC and Kristin Cast
Fire by Kristin Cashore
The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer
The Edge by Alan Gibbons
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot
Hold On by Alan Gibbons

Wonderfully, a couple of the charity shops that I visit had a Buy One Get One Free offer on their books and without it, I might not have considered picking up some of these books. I'm really looking forward to both Fire and The Boyfriend List.

Books acquired through a book swapping website (thanks to asamum for sending Swapped by a Kiss!)

Split By A Kiss by Luisa Plaja
Chosen by PC and Kristin Cast

Really looking forward to both of these books! Especially Split By A Kiss! I might have to bump it up to next on my TBR list!

Books Bought (because I can't help myself!):

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Good the Bad and the Dumped by Jenny Colgan
WIntercraft by Jenna Burtenshaw
I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter

Complete impulse buys. Someone stop me, quick.

And finally, books sent to me via the publishers/authors:

Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
Like Bees To Honey by Caroline Smailes
Wasted by Nicola Morgan
Sweet Temptation by Lucy Diamond

Just looking at these photos makes me squee a little bit. Endless Summer was sent to me from Jennifer Echols! And she signed it, I'm so excited. I heart her.

Like Bees To Honey was sent via the publishers for taking part in the blog tour, but I think I'll buy my own copy as well. I won Wasted via a Twitter competition, and Sweet Temptation via a giveaway on Caroline's blog! So I've been incredibly lucky!


  1. These all look great, and there's some I haven't heard of which is always good. I actually got The Boyfriend List too - sounds fun, doesn't it? I also need to read some Jennifer Echols - I'm always hearing from other bloggers how much they love her. Enjoy all these!

  2. You are welcome for Split by a Kiss, I know you are going to love it. Please stop getting books I want. I told you I had to stock up on your wishlist ;) Happy reading :)

  3. Looks like you have a great selection of books-your cover of The Help is different from mine-interesting.

  4. Wow amazing deals! Love that cover of Fire. Enjoy it! I loved it SO much! :)

  5. Fire looks really good, especially if it's anything like Greaceling. The Neverending Story is such a classic too; I loved reading it!
