In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie :)
These are the books I got in the last two weeks or so:
• Struck by Jennifer Bosworth (ARC, Random House Children's Books)
• Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris (ARC, HarperCollins Children's Books)
Described on the back as being 'Sophie McKenzie meets the X-Files' -- COOL.
• A Midsummer Tights Dream by Louise Rennison (HarperCollins Children's Books)
• The Look by Sophie Bennett (Chicken House)
I have already read and reviewed this one. Love.
• Poison Heart by S.B Hayes (Quercus)
I have an ARC of this too, haven't had time to read yet! Looks awesome! I may have to have a 'dark reads' week or something...
• Charmfall by Chloe Neill (Indigo)
• Hollow Pike by James Dawson (Indigo)
The finished copy is so gorgeous, man. And it's signed! Woo, thank you Nina!
• Dark Storm by Sarah Singleton (Bloomsbury)
• Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley (signed)
Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon and A Little Wanting Song was having a giveaway where she asked people to send her a line about something they love so she could put them all together and me being me, submitted her a whole poem. I didn't think I'd have a chance of winning, because some of the entries were just wow and way prettier than mine, and I wasn't hugely bothered because to be honest, I was just excited that Cath Crowley would be reading my entry, LOL! But then I won! And I had a major fan-girl freak-out because I adored Graffiti Moon and Cath Crowley thanked. Me. For. My. Beautiful. Words. OMG. I know a lot of people who read this blog are writers themselves, and know what it feels like when somebody says something nice about your writing, but when it's somebody you really admire, like an actual published author, the feeling is like, to amazing for words. *fan-girls some more* (You can read my poem and the other entries here)
HI GUYZ! I haven't done an IMM post since October! Wowness. I used to do them every week on a Sunday, but I think I'll probably do them every two weeks now. I was going to do a mega-huge one of things I've received since October, because I got some super-awesome things, but that would require effort. Sorry :P
(By the way, what are your thoughts on the feature In My Mailbox? I really like it because it means that people might read my post and come across something they've never heard of, but think they would really like. I've found a lot of really awesome-sounding books through other people's IMMs, and I just wondered on your opinion. BUT, I don't want people to think I'm showing off when I list them. I am genuinely excited for anything and everything I receive! There's nothing like coming home from a long day at school to BOOKS! Uh, yeah! What do you think?!)
What did you guys get this week?
