In My Mailbox 12

This week's IMM, which is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. I don't normally post every week, but I don't normally have this many books in one week either!

Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick

The David Sedaris and Speak were picked up at a local charity shop. I've heard David Sedaris is quite funny but I've never read anything by him. I've already Speak, but wanted to read it again after the whole #speakloudly thing as well as Banned Books week. White Crow was a book swap that I'm very happy about :)

Lovers and Liars by Nina Bell
The 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison
The Long Weekend by Savita Kalkan
Hero Type by Barry Lyga

I won two twitter giveaways this week. The first was via Michelle Harrison, the author of 13 Treasures and 13 Curses who was giving away one of her books as well as The Long Weekend. Michelle is absolutely lovely and I can't wait to read both of these books. Then I won Lovers and Liars AND a signed copy of Barry Lyga's Hero Type arrived after I'd noticed he was sending free books out to book bloggers in order for us to host giveaways. So look out in the future for my giveaway of Hero Type. (I adore Twitter)

My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey
Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey
Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey
The Other Girl by Sarah Miller
Breathing Underwater by Julia Green
Alpha by Rachel Vincent

Alpha was sent as part of a blog tour that will be happening later in the month. And the rest were from the wonderful people at Bloosmbury :) And that is it for me this week!
