In My Mailbox #4 (February Round-off)

 Sunday, 28 February 2010

I am *the* world's worst book blogger sans doute. It's been weeks since I last did a post and since I started this I have only done one actual book review which is terribly deficient of me- I apologise heartily to my followers.

So I thought that I should do a uber IMM post and include my reading for this month since I am doubtful that even I could get another book finished before midnight.

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi @The Story Siren

Right, well I bought a heck of a lot of books in February;

A Lost Lady- Willa Cather
The Mists of Avalon- Marion Zimmer Bradley
North and South- Elizabeth Gaskell (Read it 4 Stars)
The Professor's House- Willa Cather
The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald (Read it 4 Stars)
Wives and Daughters- Elizabeth Gaskell
The Moonstone- Wilkie Collins
The Mill on the Floss- George Eliot
Silas Marner- George Eliot
Ruth- Elizabeth Gaskell
A Clash of Kings- George R.R. Martin
A Storm of Swords: Steel and Snow- George R.R. Martin
Prey- Rachel Vincent
The Knife of Never Letting Go- Patrick Ness
Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye- Alison Goodman (Read it 4.5 Stars)
Revelation- C.J. Sansom
The Falcons of Montabard- Elizabeth Chadwick
Vanity Fair- William Makepeace Thakeray
The Laurentine Spy- Emily Gee (Read it 4 Stars)
Gone- Michael Grant
From Dead to Worse- Charlaine Harris (Read it 4 Stars)
All Together Dead- Charlaine Harris (Read it 4 Stars)
Definitely Dead- Charlaine Harris (Read it 4 Stars)
The Blind Assassin- Margaret Atwood
Cranford- Elizabeth Gaskell

Not all of those books were bought by me since my lovely boyfriend paid for several as part of his Valentine's Day present to me (which I thought was so sweet of him)

I also received my Librarything Early Reviewers book finally; All the Things We Didn't Say- Sara Shepard.

Now for this month's reading- It was not quite as successful as January but since classes have re-started I haven't had as much spare time on my hands so most of my reading had to be done late at night hence I got fewer books read.

Now to wrap up I want to show you the awesome bag that my boyfriend bought me as well for Valentine's Day. It sums me up perfectly and I know that many other people will feel the same. (apologies in advance for how tired I look- I woke at 2pm and my hair is a mess. Plus the weirdness of my eye is due to the light coming from my computer)

Isn't that the most perfect bag in the world for any self-respecting Book Addict???

And on that note I leave you. Happy Sunday folks!

Love the bag (and the quote)! It looks big enough to fill with a ton of books at the bookstore. :) You received a lot of great books this month. I haven't read North and South yet but it is on my list along with the other major works by Gaskell. I loved Eon: Dragoneye Reborn and I am anxiously awaiting book two althought it probably won't be published until 2011. I hope you enjoy reading all your books!

You got a lot of really good books in February - lots of classics. The Great Gatsby and A Wizard of Earthsea are two of my all time favorites. Your bag is perfect for book shopping, that quote is great!
