In My Mailbox #43

Hey everyone, welcome to this month's In My Mailbox! I've decided I'm only going to do an IMM every month (I may change my mind yet again about this later - but I'm feeling rather lazy lately and some weeks I don't get many books so there's no point in a whole post about it so at the end of every month it is ;P ) instead of every week :) So, here's what I got since the last IMM (which was halfway through Jan, so this is the last hal of January instead of all of Jan ;) ) Anyway, I shall stop blabbering on now, and get onto the books!

*New cover - I've already read this, I read it last year when it first came out with the old cover (the same as the US one) but the UK copy has a new cover that will match the UK cover of the sequel, Insurgent, so we were kindly offered a copy by the lovely Rosi at HarperCollins if we wanted a matching series :D Thanks Rosi!

So that's what I've received in the last couple of weeks, how about you? I'm most excited to read Starters, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and The Catastropic History of You and Me, but they all look AWESOME :D Leave me a link to your IMM in the comments and I'll come and check out all your lovely new books! :D

Thanks to Simon and Schuster, Random House, netGalley, HarperCollins, Penguin, ABRAMS, Delacorte Books For Young Readers and Putnam for everything I received this month!

  7. Ooh bet lots of people are envious of Spell Bound! I would be too, except I am making myself wait a little longer to read the second one so the cliffhanger won't kill me as much!

    Here's my IMM

#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 …

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 …
