In My Mailbox! 18/12/10

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren that encourages bloggers to share the new books they have got this week whether it be though the library, their mailbox or anywhere else....                        
Snow mailbox! <3
I thought the photo of a snow covered mailbox is very appropriate for me today as that's what my garden looks like at the moment (although it's not my garden!). A winter wonderland!               

From my school library:

Matched by Allie Condie
This one is a new arrival at the library and I'm so glad that I got there first to reserve it so I can read it over Christmas. There has been a lot of hype about it so it's great to be able to read it finally. I've started the first few chapters and I'm loving it so far!

The Pale Assassin (Pimpernelles Series) by Particia Elliot

This will be one of the books for The Bookette's British Book Challenge I'm taking part in. It's set in the French Revolution, which is a period I've wanted to read more about after Jenniffer Donnelly's Revolution.

For review (thank you to Bloomsbury):

Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

I don't really know much about this one but it is supposed to be a paranormal retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. I like the shiny red cover!

This week I finished reading Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen and Entice by Carrie Jones, both of which I really enjoyed and started to read Matched by Alli Condie today.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?
