in my mailbox (23)

I realllly wanted to do a video IMM this week, but time is just not allowing for it. I might have to add one in on Sunday afternoon when I get back. We'll see. As is, I'm pretty chuffed with my week in books!

For review:

A Million Suns, Beth Revis
Far From the War, Jeffrey David Payne

Bought: As a caveat, uhm, a lot of great books came out this week. I couldn't help myself!
Leviathan, Scott Westerfeld
Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins (review)

I was sent Goliath, so I had to get Leviathan. That's the way my mind rationalised it. Lola I don't even have to explain, but Mara Dyer came so quickly! I pre-ordered it ages ago and was worried that it wouldn't get here in time to participate in her epic book contest. That one's going on a trip with me tomorrow; I plan on getting a good picture.

Birthmarked, Caragh M. O'Brien
The Name of the Star, Maureen Johnson

I went to Books of Wonder to find Lola, only to discover that they didn't have it in. But they did have tons of signed copies that were beckoning to me. I originally was only going to get Birthmarked as I have Prized to read, but I saw piles of The Name of the Star behind the counter and lamented the fact that I had missed the signing due to an essay, and they took pity on me so kindly and let me pick up a signed version! I had a hard time taking a photo of that, and my hand looks terrible and clawish, but here is the sort of cool picture of the autographs.

I ordered my own copy of Mara Dyer this week, so I really hope I get it next week. I cannot wait to give it a try! Great week, hope you enjoy!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is Amazing! The Name of the Star is really good also, but the start is a bit slow (for me it was anyway!) I hope that you enjoy all the amazing books you got this week!
