IMM (16)

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.

All books have been linked up to their Goodreads pages.


I received a lovely surprise parcel this week from Tina at Abrams and Chronicle thanking me for taking part in the Struts and Frets blog tour. 

Not only did I receive some fabulous books which I will tell you about in a minute, I also received Paper Voodoo! Hilarious! Paper Voodoo dolls, so you had better stay on my good side folks. Hehehehe! 
I also got a nifty little DOMO calendar; DOMO is the official mascot for a Japanese television company and I have to say he is kind of cute.



Thanks to all the fantastic publishers who sent me books. I don't know where to start reading! If you had to choose one of the above books to read next, which would you choose?


  1. What fab books you've got in your mailbox this week, Viv. Only one for me but one I'm hoping is fab.

    I would go with Eve or Carrier of the Mark first :) I hope they're all great.

  2. I am soooo sooo envious of your Night Circus!!!! I saw this in our local bookstores here in Singapore and it took ALL remaining willpower I have left to not purchase it!!! While we already have it 'supposedly' in our community libraries, it's still being labeled/named etc - whatever it is that libraries usually do - so it is not yet available for loan. I just felt that it would be a wonderful add-in to our magical theme this month. Do let me know what you think of it once you're done reading it.

    BLISS and Paper Voodoo also look really nice. And Darth Paper Strikes Back - truth be told, they all seem to be my kind of books. :) Enjoy!

  3. Wow....very jealous at the mass amount of books! I would say eve or dear bully....purely because I'm desperate to read them and want to read your reviews!


  4. Great book haul this week, Witch Song and The Near Witch been on my wishlist. Hope you enjoy them!

    I'm waiting on my copy of Silence to arrive. Can't wait to read it!
