IMM (12)

In MyMailbox (IMM) is a weekly feature organised by The Story Siren. IMM is a post where you can show which books entered your house and it also gives you a chance to say thank you to the people that kindly sent them. To find out more about how you can join in click here.

I am suffering from book gluttony this week and actually feel ashamed by how many books have entered my house. I am hoping to spend the next two weeks just reading to compensate. So any offers to look after my children, clean my house, walk the dog, iron everyone's clothes, cook all meals will be greatly appreciated!

 A strange and scary parcel from HarperCollins Children's  Books revealed the fourth book in the Invisible Friends series by Barry Hutchison. 


An Immortals goody bag with book, Tshirt and bag. There were chocolates but I ate them! Kindly sent to me by PanMacmillan.

 All these books were picked up at the Indigo launch from Orion.

White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick - I read this at the beginning of the year, here is my review.

The Tygrine Cat on The Run by Inbali Iserles published by Walker Books. - I read Inbali's first book The Tygrine Cat when I first started blogging back in 2009, so I was really pleased when Inbali asked me if I would like to read this one too. Here is my review of The Tygrine Cat.

See I told you, book gluttony!


  1. Oooh, I've never heard of Soul Beach by Kate Harrison. What's that one about?

    Going to spend a ridiculous amount of time today on Goodreads.

    Your pile of books makes me feel better about my pile of books so I'm glad that you're shamed... ;)
