In My Mailbox #34

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

This week I decided to do another vlog, as I've got quite a lot to show you... It's better than the last one I did, so if you saw that, that's good I guess ;) Sorry about the rubbish lighting and sound, I recorded it with my laptop camera and it's not the best one in the world ;) Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Heist Society swag - bookmark, buttons and a nail file(!)

In case you didn't watch the video, I went to the Heist Society signing in Bluewater today, and I got my copy of Heist Society signed, and some swag!

I also got a couple ebooks this week, which I completely forgot to show you... ;) I got:

Daimon (Covenant, #0.5)  Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)

Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Both of these books were under £3 and they're newly released this week, and I've heard so much awesome about them that I thought I may as well buy them while they're still cheap! :D

Anyway, that's what I got this week, leave me a comment and a link to your IMM in the comments! :D


  1. Loved your vlog Bella, and I'm with you how often do you get a book related nail file? Too cool to use I think.

  2. Aw, jealous of your Heist Society swag! :). Great books this week - I really want to read Hourglass, and and Sweetly looks fab too! I also can't wait to read Half-Blood - happy reading!

  3. OOh nice! Congrats on the SIGNED book! And Jennifer's books were totally awesome! The prequel was soooo fun to read because it really helps you to understand the probs that the MC deals with in the beginning of Half Blood!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
