In My Mailbox #27

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and showcases the books you received in the week, whether it came to you in the mail, or you bought it in a shop :) Bought, borrowed, gifted, one, or for review, they all count! :) Also, I have no actual photos today because my camera's out of battery and I can't be bothered to charge it because I am a lazy person. So all pictures are from Goodreads :)


Amy & Roger's Epic Detour  Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson (UK Paperback)
I'm so excited to read this - I've only heard good things about it, so yay! I'm going to try and fit it in with my summer reading :) Also, the back is so cool, it's like a postcard...

Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done by Sarah Mlynowski (UK Paperback)
Lots of people don't like this cover and title, and I agree that the US one is better, but this one isn't hideous... And it was cheaper :) It looks hilarious and it's got really good reviews, so like Amy & Roger I'm going to try and fit it in with my summer reading too :)

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (UK Proof) *SQUEEEEEE*

Blood Red Road by Moira Young (UK Paperback)
I already have this book, but I got another copy for review this week so I've put one of them up on ReadItSwapIt :) It's in perfect condition so if you want it, I'm 'cheezyfeetbooks' :P I haven't read it yet though, so I'm excited to now! Thank you Scholastic!
