In My Mailbox #2

In My Mailbox (IMM) is a weekly feature organised by The Story Siren. IMM is a post where you can show which books entered your house and it also gives you a chance to say thank you to the people that kindly sent them. To find out more about how you can join in, click here.

Just a couple of things this week after all my bargains in Hay on Wye (see them here), and my first ever ARC (reviewed here), this week has been quiet. Largely responsible for this is the fact that now, as a 26 year old woman, I have pocket money! It's an attempt to stop me buying way too many books! I'm entering bazillions of competitions in order to combat the low funds situation. Wish me luck!

The little package which arrived via the postman this week was a cute collection of bits and pieces from Kiki Hamilton, author of The Fairy Ring, which is coming out September 27th 2011. Here's a cute picture of Rikku, my Border Collie, looking very grumpy at being woken up to pose for me!

You can read a full write up of The Fairy Ring, as well of pictures of her swag around the world, on Kiki's website. When I sent the picture to Kiki, she responded: "Oh – isn’t she a sweet little girl! (who’s saying…..WHY are you doing this to me? :) )" A HUGE thanks for sharing your freebies with me, Kiki!

The next wasn't really IMM as it was a download from 

I already own a paperback copy of Veronica Roth's Divergent, but I'd heard such spectacular things about the audiobook, that I couldn't resist using my credit to get it! I'm a few hours in and "OMG" (as my year nines would say) it's spectacular so far! Review will be up soon, no doubt.

Happy Sunday to all of you!


  1. I haven't read Divergent. There's so much hype that it kind of puts me off. I might read it later in the year.

    Cool Faery Ring swag too, lucky you.

    Here's my IMM for the week

  2. I whole-heartedly recommend it so far. It's amazing! Your IMM stash looks pretty awesome too :P

  3. I downloaded Divergent as well since it was on sale! As soon as I finish my current audio read, that's up next!

  4. @Sarah, Oooo what are you listening to at the moment?

  5. awwwww can I come steal your woggy?? (s)he's gorgeous!!! :)

  6. Lol. Her name is Rikku and she might be gorgeous, but she's also SNEAKY!

    Hubby and I bought a Dominoes Pizza today and she has silently crept into the kitchen, slid it off the worktop and EATEN IT! She had 6 of 12 slices!


I am an attention seeker and, as such, I HEART comments! Let me know what you are thinking and it will put a smile on my face!
