In My Mailbox [18]

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme designed to showcase the books we've all received recently. It's hosted, as always, by The Story Siren

I got an excellent stack of books this week, but it's unfortunately pushed me over my book limit (literally, my TBR pile now reaches my shoulders, and that is unacceptable) which means...yep. a book ban *cries* 

On Monday, I went to this superawesome cheap bookshop ComaCalm told me about. It's in York everything costs £2 and I adored it! So from there I got
Uglies&Pretties by Scott Westerfeld (with ugly covers, sadly)
and The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
For Review:
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
The Scorpio Races proof copy by Maggie Stiefvater
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Flip this Zombie and Eat Slay Love by Jesse Peterson
Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
Deception by Lee Nichols.
For Kindle:
I *FINALLY* bought a copy of The Hunger Games!! (it was £1.99) and I also got the 3rd soul screamers book My Soul to Keep for £1.49 so yeah great kindle bargains this week!!

I'd really like to thank Simon&Schuster (especially Alice, who gets 1,000s of emails a day but still manages to answer mine) Scholastic and Bloomsbury for the excellent review books, most of which were unexpected but most appreciated. 

Oh and the Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2011 nominations are currently taking place!! I've already put my nominations in, but it'd be totally great if you guys could do the same. Show some appreciation for those blogs you really love. There's loads of different categories to enter people into, and it only takes a minute or two. Check it out here

  10. AH! I SEE THE SCORPIO RACES! I'm not jealous.... I'm NOT! Okay, maybe I am a little. Hope it's awesome! Ooh and I hope Hunting Lila is great, I should be getting a copy this week, I can't wait to read it.

    You haven't read The Hunger Games?! Oh the shame, the shame! :P You will (hopefully) LOVE IT! But have Catching Fire on standby, cause you're going to want to dive straight in when you're finished.
