This week was very lucky for me. I didn't think I'd get anything at all, until Thursday one book arrived and thought 'ooh' and then Friday rolled around and my postman delivered a whole heap of books. You should have seen me doing my happy dance this morning :)
As always, In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren, but don't just head to her site for IMM, she has great stuff the entire week. Check her out.
I've decided that I will follow suit with other book bloggers who have recently just been showing the books they've recieved without mentioning which are sent via publishers etc. In My Mailbox is something that I've never done in order to show-off in any way and I hope nobody has ever felt that that's the point of these type of posts.
From now on, I will say that the books recieved into my house have been purchased brand new, through charity shops, swapped using a book-swapping website (ReadItSwapIt), sent via the publishers or won in contests/giveaways or borrowed from friends. All links go to GoodReads -- but this link is to MY account at GoodReads, let's be friends?
Whirligig by Paul Fleischman
One Of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies by Sonya Sones
The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Saving Zoe by Alyson Noel
I will be saving all of these books for an event that I'm doing next year with a group of other bloggers. The topic will be 'Death and Bereavement in Teen Lit' and I'm absolutely thrilled to start reading for it. I now have a huge stack of books to wade through. :) The Sonya Sones book and Hate List have been on my wish list since FOREVER. And Maureen Johnson's book are consistently good. Looking forward to all of these books.
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
Entice by Carrie Jones
Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
Hand Me Down World by Lloyd Jones
Grace by Elizabeth Scott
How much fun are these books? They are all fairly recent and each one makes me squee in their own ways. The Lloyd Jones book is signed. The Body Finder and Immortal Beloved are new books out on the market that look quite exciting. Entice is the third in a series that I really must start soon. And OH MY GOD. I adore Elizabeth Scott.
Have you read any of these books? Where should I start? Which books arrived into your house this week?
