In My Mailbox #66: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon.

Click for a bigger pic!

I had a great week this week! I got some amazing gifts, quite a few signed books, and some that I've already read this week and really enjoyed. I went to a Melvin Burgess/William Nicholson event on Wednesday with Keris Stainton, which consisted of a 'Sex in Teen Lit' talk and a signing. It was really good - very interesting and funny. I bought a new copy of Doing It to get signed, and also got my copies of Junk, Rich and Mad and Della Says: OMG! signed (Thanks for this last one, Keris!).


For review:
  • Now by Morris Gleitzman (Yay!)

Bought:
  • The Host by Stephenie Meyer (US paperback with a new chapter!)

Gifts:

Happy reading, everyone!
