In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a great meme from The Story Siren.  If you'd like to take part, visit The Story Siren's IMM page for further details.

I've had two books this week.  The first was a swap in a UK group called ReaditSwapit:

YOU AGAINST ME by Jenny Downham

and this last book is one I bought with a gift voucher so it only cost me 23p out of my own money.  That's not breaking the book buying ban is it????

POSSESS by Gretchen McNeil

And that's what I got in my mailbox this week.  Mmm, yeah, this week.  Sorry it's been such a quiet one around here folks.  The books I've been reading are for future dates/tours so I've not had any reviews to put up here.  It's also been a pretty busy week with the school half term holidays.  Anyway, I'm 3/4 of the way through Daughter of Smoke and Bone, so hopefully I'll have a review of that one up this week, and on Monday I'll be hosting a tour of the third book in The Paranormals series by JL Bryan.  This one is awesome and if you haven't read the first in the series, Jenny Pox, then you really should grab it whilst it's free for Kindle!

So after all that prattling on and excuses as to why I haven't posted this week, I'll leave you in peace.  Just let me know what you got in your mailbox before you go.

These are both new to me. I hope you enjoy all your new reads. Happy reading!

I've got Jenny Downham's first book (Before I Die), but I haven't read it yet, so I will probably wait and read that one first before getting You Against Me.

As for Posses, I can safely say that spending 23p on a book definitely does NOT count as breaking a book ban!

Hope you enjoy them both, Karen! :)

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

I'm dying to read Possess! My library has it in, but it's still 'in-process'. I can't wait to read it. :) Enjoy!

23p isn't breaking anything - I've lost more down the back of the sofa! I'm going to go on a book buying ban myself after next week. :)

You have Possess! I am so envious!

Ellie said...

You can lose more than 23p down the back on the sofa...definitely not breaking the ban!

I think 23p is okay to spend on books!
Hope you're enjoying Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I loved it.
