In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox Is An Awesome Blog Post Idea Hosted By The Story Siren
All links will take you to Amazon

 
After last weeks motherload of books, this week has been a little slow.  But I did get some interesting bits that I have to share!  Oh and one of my most eagerly anticipated new reads......
 
Bought 
 

1. Delirium By Lauren Oliver
I have been SO excited by this book for so long!  I've so many wonderful things about it & it will definitely be my next read.  Just wait for my gushing review!!

2. Entangled By Cat Clarke
It seems that the majority of my friends have beat me to reading this one & the blurb for it sounds amazing.  Can't wait to give this one a read soon!
I also suggest you find Cat Clarke on Twitter - she is AWESOME!! @cat_clarke
 
 
I went to spend the day in Bath with my Mum this week (Blog post to come soon) And went to the Jane Austen Centre.  There was a gift shop, so of course I had to buy some goodies for myself!
 I got....
1. The History of England Booklet 
This was written by Jane Austen when she was a child & all the illustrations were done by her sister.  Too cool to not buy!
2 Pencils - I buy a pencil wherever I go - strange habit!
A Book style Bookmark
 
Heres a LINK to the centres website, well worth a look

Won

 
Quite possibly the coolest thing I got was a signed bookmark for Maggie Stiefvater herself!!!  She did a twitter contest, where the first 15 people to tweet their favorite scene from Linger got a bookmark.  I was one of the lucky 15 - Major GeekGirl Dancing Ensued

That was my lot for this week - hope you got some Great stuff too!!!
xoxo

  1. Great books! New follower too!
    Congrats on the Maggie bookmark! Lucky girl. So jealous that you went to Bath for Jane Austen stuff. I've only been to Bath once and it was before I cared about Austen :-( I'll go on my next trip to England.
