In my mailbox 8
Here are the books thatI picked up in the last week. Sorry that photo is the worst in the world. I am no photographer! As always IMM is hosted by The Story Siren, check her out!
Candor by Pam Bachorz
The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight by Jenny Valentine
Fade by Lisa McMann
Yay for these books. I was so excited to get started, that I've already finished Candor. Expect my review very soon. Jenny Valentine is just one of those authors for me, I cannot wait.
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
I've been waiting for this one for awhile! It's been difficult finding books to swap with at my local place, maybe I'll have to look for alternate ways to swap books. Any other UK book bloggers interested? Send me an email, we can swap lists and wishlists if you'd like :)
UK ARC tour:
Matched by Ally Condie ( sadly not pictured as its no longer in my possession)
UK book tours have started, and I was lucky enough to recieve Matched first! It was amazing. You can read my review if you like.
Won in a giveaway:
The Midnight Charter by David Whitley
The Children of the Lost by David Whitley
Thank you very much to Splendibird at The Mountains of Instead and Penguin for these!
Yay for birthdays:
Watership Down by Richard Adams
A very kind friend gave me this wonderful hardback book of Watership Down (his favourite book) for my birthday. It was unexpected and really nice of him. I don't think he reads my blog, but thank you, S!
From the library:
Withering Tights by Louise Rennison (also not pictured)
Everytime I walk into the library these days, I leave with less and less. It's a little disturbing. But I have to balance that statement out by saying that after I've finished the book I'm reading, I will have read 100 of my OWN books this year.
So that is it for me this week. Have you read any of these books? What came into your house this week?
