In my Mailbox (27)

In my Mailbox is hosted by the awesome Kristi at www.thestorysiren.com

I wasn't out to get any books this week but I ended up with a modest haul.


Crusade by Linda Press Wulfe (finished copy)
I received this in the post early in the week. I am really excited to have a finished copy as I loved the cover when I first saw it and the proof was very plain (which I now have available to send out to someone in my book fairy role) I have a review going up on it very early in January 2011. A fab read and worth hunting down when it is published.


The Foreshadowing by Marcus Sedgewick (hardcover signed)
I don't know why I haven't read more Marcus Sedgewick as I have liked everything I have read of his so far. I found this lovely little signed number for the bargain sum of £2. I will be reading it as part of my attempt at completing the British Book Challenge hosted by www.thebookette.co.uk

Wereworld: Rise of the wolf by Curtis Jobling (finished copy)
I will be reading and reviewing this before the end of the year after being asked to by my lovely contact at penguin. It is a new fantasy series by the man who invented bob the builder (although I'm pretty sure he hasn't got a cameo in this!) My review will be up on the 31st December.

The Beautiful Lie by Ifran Master (finished copy)
I love the sound of this book. I am going to read it both as part of my debut author challenge held by www.thestorysiren.co.uk and the British Books Challenge held by www.thebookette.co.uk. I love the sound of it and think it'll appeal to my historicalness.

Great books this week! Isn't it great when you're not expecting too much and then you get an awesome set of books? My IMM is here, if you're interested: http://christitheteenlibrarian.blogspot.com/2010/12/in-my-mailbox-12.html

(I love the book fairy idea, too...might I borrow it sometimes, perhaps?)

Have a great week!
