In My Mailbox 26/6/11- 2 weeks


In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at the Story Siren and is where bloggers share all the books that have made it into their houses each week!

I didn't take part in IMM last week so here's all the books I got in the past fortnight:


Pegasus by Robin McKilney
(many thanks to Penguin for sending me a review copy)



I've heard really mixed things about this book but I couldn't resist that gorgeous cover and the fairy tale fantasy sounding plot. In truth, that cover looks even more beautiful in real life. I can't wait to see what I think of it =)

Sorceress by Celia Rees 
(library)


This is the sequel to Witch Child by Celia Rees, which I have yet to start but I've now got both books out of my school library for the summer. That's the awesome thing about school library books over the summer- you don't have to worry about taking them back for six weeks! I'll probably be taking lots more out before the end of term. I've read The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees and I hope I like this series as much as that.

Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman
(library)


Malorie Blackman is visiting my school this Autumn ( YAY!) and since I haven't read any of her books yet even though I've been recommended them so much, I thought I'd start with this one. I read the first chapter on Friday and it was a great start.

Have you read any of these books- what did you think of them? What did you get in your mailbox this week?

  2. Nice list. I am one of the people who really liked Pegasus and I really want the sequel. Since I follow McKinley's blog, I know I have a long wait.

    My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  3. I was really intrigued by Pegasus when I first saw it, but I have yet to get around to reading it! Fail. I've also heard Boys Don't Cry is really cute. I hope you enjoy your new reads!

  8. You are soooo lucky! I'd LOVE to meet Malorie Blackman! Argh. Jealous. Im green with envy.

    Boys Don't Cry is brilliant - one most powerful books I've read this year - but then Blackman's books usually are.

    Tell her she has a major fan over here in little UK lol!

    Enjoy your new books!
