In my Mailbox (6)

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we talk about the books we received in our mailbox the past week, or books that we bought, borrowed from the library etc.

This week I got one book, andt I am very excited about it:

For review:
Reckless, Cornelia Funke

I got the Norwegian translation of the book and I am going to read it as part of a Norwegian blog tour later this autumn.

Here is the Norwegian cover. I think it is quite pretty:

" For the first time in his life, Jacob Reckless is afraid. For years he's stolen across to another world. A dark enchanted place he's loved for its treasure, secrets and dangers. Until now. Will, his younger brother, has followed him with terrible consequences: The boy will turn to beast; the girl he loves will break her hert and chaos will rule forever, unless Jacob can spin a fairytale to save them .."
(Description from amazon.co.uk)

Watch the booktrailer:



What did you get in your mailbox this week?

I LOVE Cornelia Funke's books- The Book Thief and the Inkworld trilogy. Really want to read this.

Enjoy! =)

I'm waiting for this one as well, I'm pretty sure we're part of the same tour. When did you get your copy? It would be great if mine came soon, I like to read the book in good time before my tour date.

I got Rubinrød in my mail last week :D

Ooh, Reckless! I love the Inkheart Trilogy (well, the two I've read so far), and can't wait to read more by her. Looking forward to hearing what you think of this one.
