In My Mailbox 21/11/10

In My Mailbox is a feature held by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren, which encourages bloggers to share what new books they have got every week.

The books I got this week (my camera is not working!)
  • An ARC of In The Shadow Of The Lamp by Susanne Dunlap (won in a giveaway on Susan's Facebook page)
Thank you so much to Susan for holding the fantastic early ARC giveaway for your Facebook fans and for being willing to ship it internationally. I am so excited about reading this one as it is YA historical fiction and about Florence Nightingale who is a historical figure I know quite a bit about but haven't read about in a historical fiction book.
I love the cover, I think it's really pretty and suits the story.
I couldn't resist reading the first chapter and so far it is fantastic and really made me want to read more of it! .It is set to be released in April 12th next year.
  • Captivate by Carrie Jones (from the library)
I am currently reading the first book in the series, Need and am planning on reading this one next in order to review Entice in time for its release date.

 haven't been able to read or post this week as much because I have been preparing for school exams. I'll try to do more this week but it should all be over in the next couple of weeks :D

What new books did you get this week?

  1. Ooooh the cover of In the Shadow of the Lamp is so pretty! I'm looking forward to that one, it sounds good (and I don't know too much about Florence Nightingale so perhaps a bit educational as well :D)

  3. I am so jealous of In the Shadow of the Lamp! I tried to get an ARC from the publisher, but they can't send it yet.

  6. I'll have to keep an eye out for Shadow of the Lamp. What a great idea for a novel. I've always admired Florence Nightingale and it would be interesting to read a fictionalized account of her story.

  7. Thanks for commenting about the WTF post :P Yeah, I wanted to do the walkout but our school banned us from going, so our school had a mini one! We all got into loads of trouble.... all for a good cause though!
    I know, I'll never be able to afford these fee's! There goes my [and hundreds of others] dream!
    And apparently the police are refusing to let people leave :O
    Anyway, Captivates brilliant, you'll love it! It was such a great sequel to Need xx
