In my mailbox (24)

A quiet week for me - I am trying to control myself in the run up to christmas and not buy too much otherwise I won't have any money to buy any presents. Speaking of which I got my secret santa info through today - I am getting very excited about putting a parcel together for the person I have.

This is what I received this week


Bought

Angel by LA Weatherley 
I have heard lots of positive things about this book even though I can't really tell you what it is about off the top of my head. I found a signed copy of it (you know how much I love signed books) on Foyles.co.uk so thought I should order it before they all got snapped up!

For review

I got a selection of books from a new contact at Scholastic (I keep wanting to say Scholtastic because they are fantastic!) which I am excited to read.

Quarry by Ally Kennen
I haven't heard anything about this and have just made up the entry on goodreads based on the information that is on the back of the proof. It is coming out early next year and looks good.

The memory cage by Ruth Eastham
Another one where I have just edited the goodreads page - looks right up my street and should be especially helpful for school. I believe Eastham is debut author

Diary of a parent trainer by Jenny Smith
Yet another I've just updated - this looks potentially quite fully - maybe more middle grade than YA

The Great Plague (my story series) by Pamela Oldfield
I am particularly interested in this series which I haven't ever read yet as it looks like it would be perfect for school - may be one that doesn't stay in my collection at home once I've read it but goes with me to my other collection at school for the kids to dip in and out of (if you've seen the pictures of my home collection all I can say is my one at school rivals it - It has to be at school as I haven't got space at home for it as well)

Thanks to the awesome Kristi at www.thestorysiren.com for hosting IMM

Great list! My week was quiet, too, right up until about Thursday, when a bunch of holds at the library came in for me!
