In my mailbox (10)

I wasn't going to buy anything this week! It just sorta happened.
IMMB is hosted by Kristi at www.thestorysiren.com
all links go to www.goodreads.com


From http://www.reaveleybooks.co.uk 
This is an awesome website specialising in modern first editions

How I live now - Meg Rosoff
Before I die - Jenny Downham
The Declaration - Gemma Malley
I have read all three of these before and loved them so I thought I would invest in them as signed first editions.

From www.amazon.co.uk

13 to life - Shannon Delany - Had this on preorder for ages and very pleased it is already here!

From www.readitswapit.co.uk

Ash - Malinda Lo - The cover of this is beautiful.

Charity shop find

The charity shops in Norfolk are rubbish - I found this awesome gem in Ely in one of their many charity shops


The prophecy of the sisters - Michelle Zink

From Topping and company.
A fantastic bookshop in Ely. I loved it so much and am tempted to drive the over 2 hour drive every weekend just to visit the gorgeous children's section (it has a room to itself). The thing I really liked is they had loads and loads of signed first editions of books (therefore all of these are signed). I was like a kid in a sweet shop. If you are ever in Ely it is very close to the Catherdral in the main high street.

Fallen Grace - Mary Hooper
The fool's girl - Celia Rees
Revolver - Marcus Sedgwick

Won

I never win anything - I was so incredibly excited when this arrived.
A huge thanks to Jo at http://onceuponabookcase.blogspot.com and Simon and Schuster

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 - Vornholt, Cover and Henderson

Great books...The Fool's Girl and Fallen Grace are both really good! Hope you enjoy x

I only have read Ash and it's a really good book. Hopefully you will love it too. Also The prophecy of the sisters - Michelle Zink sounds like a great read, I'm still waiting till the new covers arrive here in Holland, so I can buy both of the books. ;) Happy Reading.

What a great week! I agree that The Declaration is amazing, so it was definitely worth investing in a signed copy. And BUFFY! YAY! Enjoy :)
