In my mailbox (12, 13, 14, 15)

This is a weekly meme hosted by the Story Siren,where we talk about the books we got the last week. I have not an IMM post for some weeks, so these are books I got over a few weeks:

First; I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me when I came home from London yesterday. It was a package containing Haven by debutauthor Kristi Cook. The book was sent to me from Pamela, who runs the great blog At Home Between the Pages, through the Random Acts of Kindness. Thank you so much Pamela, I can't wait to read the book. Pamela's review of the book is here.

For review, presented to you by my miniature schnauzer Bogart:
Don Calame: Swim the fly ( Got at the London Book Fair, LBF)
Heather Gudenkauf: These things hidden (Got at the LBF)
R.J. Andersson: Ultraviolet (Got at the LBF)
Andy Briggs: Tarzan, The Greystoke Legacy (Got at the LBG)
Diane Chamberlain: The Midwife's Confession (Got at the LBF)
fransesca Simon: The Sleeping Army (Got at the LBF)
Gill Lewis: Sky Hawk (Got at the LBF)
Colin Mulhern: Clash (Got at the LBF)
Margaret Leroy: The Collaborator (Got at the LBF)
Meg Rosoff: There is no dog (Got at the LBF)
Heather Davis: Wherever You Go (Via Netgalley)

Bought:

Gabriella Poole: Darke Academy 1 ( Have heard great things about this from a Norwegian blogger, so that's why I got it)
Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Secret Garden
Christopher Ransom: The Haunting of James Hastings
Andrew Pyper: The Guardians
Jana Oliver: The Demon Trappers: Forsaken
Lisa T. Bergren: Waterfall (Forgot I presented this in my last IMM as well)
Marie Treanor: Blood Sin (Awakened by Blood 2)
M.J. Putney: Dark Mirror
Janice Hardy: Blue Fire ( Loved the first one in this series.)
Melissa de la Cruz: Blue Bloods

And for my kindle I bought:

Lindsey Barraclough: Long Lankin
Clay & Susan Griffith: Greyfriar

And I also bought a trip to New York, and registered for the Book Blogger Con 2011 and for BEA. I have wanted to go there for so long, but I was not sure if I wanted to go all by myself. New York is a big town, so the thought of travelling there all by myself was a bit scary. I have not been to the USA ever before. But then I found out that a friend of mine is going to be in town at the same dates, so that was the trigger. I will still be travelling and attending BEA all alone, but at least there is someone I know in town at the same time. That is a reasurrance to me.

Have a great sunday everyone :)

I'm going to BEA too - Don't worry, you will meet so many people there that you "know" through blogging. I went for the first time last year.
Happy reading - I loved The Greyfriar.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your mailbox is simply amazing this week. You have so many interesting books. I hope you have fun in New York! I hope to attend next year. I didn't learn about BEA far enough in advance this year to try to pull it off. Perhaps next year will be a good year. Have a great week!

Savannah said...

Great book! Enjoy them all!!

Ladybug said...

I want some of those myself :D It's been a long time since I've done an IMM myself, maybe I should do one like yours next weeek.

I want to go too, but I'm not as tough as you so I don't think it I'll happen ever. I hope you have a wonderful experience and that we'll get a report once you get home.

Oh wow, you've had a great book haul this week. I hope you enjoy them all :)

@Karen: I guess you are right. I tend to be a bit shy around people I do not know, but there will probably be many people there who also are attending alone.

@MoonStar: LBF = London Book Fair LBG is just a spelling grammar.

@Marla: Thank you for your nice comment:)

@Eden: Thank you :)

@Carrie: At least he will en enjoy some company in the couch while I read them :)

@Savannah: Thank you :)

@Ladybug: Maybe the Norwegian bloggers who wants to go should try to travel together next year if possible.

@The Slowest Bookworm: I normally don't get that many books, these weeks have been special :)

Karen said...

I'm super shy too and just waiting in lines I met other bloggers who were there alone too. We all started banding together...lol
It's surprising how shy we all are considering how much we all talk online.
