In My Postbox #35

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

Hi guys! Hope you are all well. Not much news this week but I got some pretty cool books so check it out!


REVIEW:

An Act of Love by Alan Gibbons.
I got a proof copy of this a week or two ago and this is a beautiful finished copy. It's paperback but has flaps on the inside that each have either one of the guys on the cover. Very cool. Looking forward to reading this one! Thanks to Nina for this!

The Case of the Deadly Desperados by Caroline Lawrence.
I cannot believe I missed this off the pic! :( Oh well. It's a lovely looking little book, let me tell you. Currently reading it and loving it. First in The Western Mysteries. Very much looking forward to the rest of this series! Again thanks to Nina at Orion for this! You're a star!

The Truth About Celia Frost by Paula Rawsthorne.
I hadn't actually heard of this until the proof popped through my postbox this week! Sounds pretty good! Thanks Usborne! :D

Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Already have a proof of this and have actually read it. Brilliant little dystopian novel... I say little, it's huge! A brick of a book! But so good! Review in the next few weeks hopefully! Thanks Scholastic!

BOUGHT:

Lee Raven, Boy Thief by Zizou Corder.
I am a big Zizou Corder fan having loved the Lionboy trilogy when they were published! Used to speak to Louisa, one half of the duo loads especially around the time this book was being written in 2007. So much so that my name (first and middle, not surname...) actually appears in the acknowledgements for "encouragement"... I do have a proof copy of this which my parents brought for me I believe years ago! Now I have this beautiful shiny finished book!

Halo by Zizou Corder
Another Zizou book! This was released last February but I just never got around to it. Going to now though and I cannot wait! It's Ancient Greece, with Centaurs. What's more to want?!

So there you go! That's what I got this week! What did you guys get? Hope you all have a great week, and happy reading!
