In My Mailbox 17th July 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where book bloggers can talk about the books they've gotten the past week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped or given for review. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and improve our awareness of all the new books coming out.
I tried to go easy on the books this week and reign myself in... didn't really work! I'm really REALLY not going to buy any more books (apart from ones I've already pre-ordered) until after my birthday in October. I mean it this time- I have waaaaaay to many books to read now!
This week I got...

Bought:


  • The Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld. Heard good things about this series- love these covers. I saw these in the bookshop but forced myself to put them back, and managed to pick them up on Amazon Marketplace for 1p each + the cost of postage, which worked out that I got all three of them for the same price as one new one in the bookshop. They are a little yellowed and worn around the edges, but perfectly readable.
Bought for Kindle:


  •  Girl Parts by John Cusick. I love the sound of this book about what happens when a robot designed to be a boy's ideal "companion" develops a will of her own. Futuristic but also scarily current in a world where everyone has so many online friends but some guys lose the abilty to connect with the real world and to interact face to face with real people. I got this in Amazon's kindle summer sale.





For review:

  • Eve by Anna Carey. Wow- I was so excited to get this book- a dystopian romance- which I've had on my wishlist for months. Love the sound of this book! This is published in October.
Received with thanks from the publisher.








So those were the books I got this week- what did you get?
Happy reading!

  6. OOh lovely. I love Amazon Marketplace. I have that series on my shelf and I love the clock face on the spine.

    I hope you enjoy Girl Parts. I've heard good things about it which is why I picked it up myself last week.
