In My Mailbox (2)

whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

I only received one swap this week and that was The Old Curiosity Shop. After reading A Christmas Carol last week, I was eager to get my hands on some more books by Dickens.

I spent some time in Morpeth, a small, close town by where I live, unexpectedly and so naturally, I headed to the independent bookshop where I picked up I Know What You Did Last Summer. I've seen it around before and I'm glad that I finally bought it - it's one I'm certainly excited about. At the bookshop, I also picked up To The Boy in Berlin which I hadn't heard of before, but as it was reduced and looks like it has an interesting format, I decided I'd give it a go. Black Rabbit Summer and Breakfast at Tiffany's were both charity shop finds and I'm especially excited to read the latter, a modern classic.

Three more charity shop finds, this time from Newcastle. I'm not sure what I'm expecting from any of these three, but The Morning Gift looks very interesting and Every Last One seems to have had a lot of positive publicity. Welcome to my World looks fun enough!

I was very pleased to find these in a secondhand bookshop! The cover of Some Girls Bite seems to be rather reminiscent of The Morganville Vampire Series which I love and although I'm yet to read Glimmerglass which precedes Shadowspell, I've seen that both books have incredible ratings!

One Night That Changes Everything and A Little Wanting Song are two books that I purchased from The Book Depository. They both seem to be quite popular and they're both authors that I really need to be introduced to. These are the books I'm most excited about this week!

    I love Jenna Black's faeriewalker series and Shadowspell was one of the three that had me spinning with my own theories of how it would end. Really enjoyed that.

    I've been meaning to read Eva Ibbotson's books but haven't gotten the chance to do so yet. hope you like it.

    Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
