Before I begin with Monday Mailbox, I just want to say well done to everyone who participated in Dewey's Read-a-thon. I never got the pleasure of speaking to Dewey, but she sounded like a wonderful person and I think it is lovely that the read-a-thon continues in her memory. I think you all did so well, reading for so long, I am very impressed. I know I would probably struggle with it as it would start at 1pm over here and I would struggle to stay awake all night and still keep going in the morning.
So onto Monday Mailbox. I picked up quite a few books last week, as I bought four from the airport. That was my treat to myself, as it was four books for three and they had all the latest hardbacks in paperback. So, as you can see I picked up the following books.
1) Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. I have been desperate to read this one for ages. I just couldn't resist in in paperback.
2) The Resistance by Gemma Malley - I didn't realise until after I had bought it that this is the second book in the trilogy, so now I need to go out and get the first before I start. The first one is called The Declaration.
3)Shiver by Maggie Steifvater. I read this one whilst on holiday and loved it. Think Twilight but just with wolves. I can't wait until next fall to get the sequel. It really was fabulous and I hope to review it next week.
4)Evermore by Alyson Noel - I have heard so much about this one, I couldn't resist it.
The following two books I picked up at the book swap on holiday. They had a box of books where you could exchange books. I picked up Miss Smilia's Feeling For Snow by Peter Hoeg and While I Was Gone by Sue Miller.
When I arrived home from holiday, these two books were waiting for me.
1) Jewel by Bret Lott - I got this through BookMooch.
2) Saving CeeCee Honeycut by Beth Hoffman. I was sent this book by Beth Hoffman herself. She was trailing the Internet and found my blog post mentioning an interest in her book and sent me one of her own copies. Beth was over the moon that someone in England wanted to read her book and I am the first person in England to get my hands on it. So thank you ever so much Beth.
That is my book haul this week. What did you get?
