In my mailbox (10)

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

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.


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


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


I never win anything - I was so incredibly excited when this arrived.
A huge thanks to Jo at 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 :)
