Letterbox Love

Can you believe this will probably be the last IMM of 2011. I have spent the last week putting all the books I want to read in 2012 in some kind of order and wondering how to go without sleep in order to actually be able to read them ALL.

Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting IMM weekly so I can give thanks for the lovely things that come through my door.

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (please remind me to put my link up because I always forget *doh*) in order to share the beautiful books that cross our threshold.
(loved the first one (review HERE) – need to get my hands on the second one Exile)
(all I can say is total SQUEEE)
(the fabulous Andy from The Pewter Wolf is going to be guest reviewing this one for me <3)
(the amazing Beth of The Pieces of Me is going to be reviewing this one)
(I have been waiting for this one for ages – really looking forward to reading it)

(the 9yo is reviewing this one – she has started it already and keeps sniggering away to herself) 
(the title changed from the initial Sea Hearts – my wonderful Year 13 Librarian is reviewing this one. He is really into folklore so this one was just made for him to read. He has also done a fantastic presentation for me about folklore to use in the library lessons – scheduled for February) 
Crossed by Ally Condie
( adored Matched Review HERE – so far I have seen mixed opinions about the sequel around the blogosphere – I need to read this soon to make up my own mind)
And I have a confession. I gave in and bought a kindle. I had some gift vouchers and discovered that nectar points can be converted into Amazon vouchers, so I got one. To be honest I still prefer the real thing, book are so much better but there are just some that I have been seeing around the blogs that aren’t available in the UK in any other format.  Seriously you guys are so NAUGHTY making me covet these books [ ; D ] <3
Here are the books I got for it:



Solstice by PJ Hoover
(I used this one on the Greek Mythology in YA presentation)
The Light of Asteria by Elizabeth Isaacs
(Lynsey of Narratively Speaking is so to blame for me getting these [ ; D ] 
The Secret of the Keepers by Elizabeth Isaacs
Nearly all of these were under £1 *swoon*
Have a great week *hugs*

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren to show the book love and tempt other book addicts with the shiny books [ ; D ] 

(I have been desperate for this one – I want to review it for Anti-Bullying Week and use it in the library lessons. I gave in and bought it myself as there is absolutely no budget left in school [ : ( ]
(after doing Witches in YA in the library lessons for the past 2 weeks I just couldn’t resist buying it. My 9 year old can’t walk past it on my desk as the cover is freaking her out, lol)
Huge thanks to Laura of Sisterspooky Book Fangirl for these books <3
How lucky are the participants in UK BOOK TOURS – I like try to get the tours for these books up next week so keep checking the site.
(I haven’t read the House of Night series but one of my guest reviewers is a huge fan this book is winging its way to her)
(really enjoyed the first one and have the second one to read thanks to Kirsty at The Overflowing Library)
(love this series and have already read it – review to come)
Before you ask – yes they will be going on tour with UK BOOK TOURS after I have read them.
(I have had this one in my sights for the library for a while – it looks such fun)
(I have the first one on my shelf – love the sound of this series and so does the 11 year old)
(I already know this one is going to fly off the library shelves after I have read it)
(I have read the Wicked series by these authors so I am interested to read another book by them)

Big hugs and kisses to Viv at Serendipity Reviews for this one.
I have been frothing at the mouth for this book since playing the book trailer in Witches in YA lessons in the library. I have truly amazing blogging friends <3
(watch the trailer here)
Amazing books, amazing people I am super lucky and I appreciate it.
Have a great week xxxx
