In My Mailbox #23 The Post-Birthday One

 Sunday, 10 October 2010

Good mornin'  all! And would you believe it I am actually awake before noon and writing this on Sunday morning? (I was out vair late last night drinking and dancing so didn't have time to write it yesterday).
But never mind really since it's all worked out fine, I'm awake in plenty of time to post this *and* get dressed and off to my cricket training session at 12pm.

In my Mailbox is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

This week there's no vlog since I showed all the books in Friday's (slightly delayed) Birthday Post
But I'm gonna show a photo of the books just in case you don't wanna hop over to the other post and watch the video (I think you should but I'm not gonna push everyone over there :P).

Books Acquired this week
Raised by Wolves - Jennifer Lynne Barnes
Finding Sky - Joss Stirling
Hunger - Michael Grant
Lies - Michael Grant
Leaving Paradise - Simone Elkeles
If I Stay - Gayle Forman
Angel - L.A. Weatherly
Bonjour Tristesse - Francoise Sagan
Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic - Scott Cunningham
A dictionary of World Mythology
Famous Last Words - compiled by Jonathon Green (!!!)
Natural History of the Vampire - Anthony Masters
Plus two grammar books for French and Spanish (not pictured)

Not a bad birthday haul methinks, although when I'm gonna have time to read all those I don't know since I've only read two books so far this month which is horrifying for me. I've still got to read Atonement for my Favs Fortnight and then by decree of Jess I *must* read Angel next (or bad things may happen :S)

Do be lovely and check out Jess's Guest Post from yesterday, she talks about what makes the Harry Potter series so special to her although she can't choose an outright favourite book.
I also did my review on the Prisoner of Azkaban over Here if you fancy having a gander at it.

But that's all we've got time for folks - I gotta fly!
