In My Mailbox 24/7/11

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme where book bloggers share all the new books that have made it into their house this week whether from the bookstore, for review or from the library. I've lost my camera connecting lead so there are no photos this week!

My New Books

Eight Keys by Suzanne le Fleur (thank you to Puffin UK for sending this ARC for review)

Another blogger's ARC.

I haven't read this author's debut Love Aubrey but I've heard nothing but praise for it so I'm looking forward to reading my first book of hers. This is also the first ARC I've been sent for review (I've won one before), which is very exciting!

Shadows of the Moon by Zoe Marriott  (bought for Kindle)

This one's a loose retelling of Cinderella and I love fairytales and have seen such positive reviews of it that I just couldn't resist buying it in the Kindle Summer Sale for the bargain price of £2.50! It's actually the first Kindle book I've bought as the rest of the books on my Kindle have been free or from NetGalley.

From my school library:

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

I know so many bloggers who are huge Dessen fans and when I was recommended her by Jess from Jess Hearts Books when asking for contemporary book recommendations, I finally decided to try her. Thank you to everyone who has recommended Dessen's books to me!

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

As many of my long term blog readers will know, I love historical fiction but surprisingly I've never read any of Philippa Gregory's books. This is because I've heard there's some inappropriate content for my age but I've decided to try one now.

Arabella by Georgette Heyer

I've read this before and it was my first Heyer so I really want to re-read it this summer. If you're looking to try Heyer's regency romance books, then Arabella would be a great one to start off with.

Have you read any of these books? What did you get in your mailbox?

I don't have much time to visit other's IMM posts this week because I have a friend staying at the moment but I will try my best to get round to as many people as possible.


  1. Congrats on your first Arc to review. I got a short story from the library of Sarah Dessen's to try. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on her books. :)

  2. Thanks for the heads up about Shadows on the Moon being reduced in the kindle sale, I've wanted to read it for ages!

    The Other Boleyn Girl is a very enjoyable book. I also like The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory :)
