In my mailbox (56)

A huge thank you as always to Kristi for hosting IMM each week. Check out her blog at

I have been away since last Sunday in Cornwall on a school trip. I got home late friday night to a fantastic pile of parcels which contained the majority of what is below.

This picture is of the books I treated myself to for the summer holidays. They are all one I have had my eye on for a while and because I have been putting in so many hours marking exam scripts I decided to just order them. Most of them I have been recommended by other bloggers to read so I am looking forward to them all.

Strings Attached by Judy Blundell (UK paperback)
I bought this because it was the only book in the bookshop in Bude that I didn't already have. I took 5 books with me and then found that I ran out quickly!
My lovely blogging friend sent me this as a birthday present. Thank you Clover.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Puffin Classics)
The Adventures of Robin Hood (Puffin Classics)
I now only have one more of these to get - I think the editions are really beautiful and they look gorgeous together on my shelves

I'm off to Cambridge today for my second wedding annivesary so I'll catch up on commentin later in the week as I now have 6 weeks off!

I really enjoyed "Awaken," and I'd like to be able to read "Haven" at some point, if I can manage to find a copy. Nice haul this week!

(If you're curious, I've got my IMM posted on my own blog right now, too!)

Wow! That is an awesome pile of books! I like the UK cover of strings attached better than the U.S. one because the UK cover has the microphone in the background, which the U.S. cover is just a black background.
Nice lot of books:D I have Awaken need to read it and I loved Birthmarked. The rest look great but not read.

I loved Awaken and I'm dying to read Haven! The Puffin classics look adorable! They really know how to make classics appealing. Hope you enjoy!

Happy belated anniversary! I've been hearing really good things about Nevermore, so I'm quite interested to hear what you think about that.

In fact, I think all of the books in that first picture have been on my wishlist at some point but were taken off because I hadn't heard anything about them, so I really can't wait to hear what you think of them! :)
