In My Mailbox #37

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

Once again, this week, the sound in my video is awful. And the lighting's pretty rubbish too... I did my best, it's just I use the camera on my laptop and let's be honest, laptop webcams are not great. Anyway, I've listed the books underneath and typed out all the important bits that I say, just in case you can't watch it ;)

Lost In Time by Melissa de la Cruz
Between by Jessica Warman
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce

(Thanks to my parents for these birthday presents! Have read them both and they were AMAZING and I wanted finished HB copies)

For Review:
After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel
Footloose by Ruby Josephs

(Thanks to Bloomsbury for both of these!)

Then I showed 4 books that I got signed this week:

Crescendo and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick - I went to a signing in Foyles and she signed these for me :)
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - I also went to a different signing and got this signed, which is also where I got...
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - Cassie was a special guest at the Maureen Johnson signing, and I happened* to have my copy of CoB with me... ;)

*When I say happened... I mean, I took it because I knew she was going to be there and I thought I could sneak it to her to sign for me ;) And because she's a nice person, she did! :D

Haha, this is me with Maureen Johnson :) Cheesy grin! ;) It was such a good event! I met Cicely from Cicely Loves Books and her mum for the second time this week (and ever) and they were SO nice, and Maureen of course was awesome too :D And I met Becca Fitzpatrick for the second time this week too, where again I met Cicely and her mum... I do have pictures but not uploaded onto this computer ;) Overall though, great week for bookish things! :D

Anyway, I think I had a pretty good week this week! Let me know what you got in your mailbox this week - leave me a link in the comments! Hope you have a great week - I'm off on holiday** :)

**Which is why I might not be posting anything this week... Because we're going away and I have NO IDEA if there'll be any internet or signal at all there... I tried to get things scheduled and written beforehand, but I got distracted and haven't written anything... Completely my fault, of course! So if there's nothing posted, that's why! Anyway, thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Yay! Awesome mailbox ;D It's been such an awesome week! And it so cool meeting you, like, twice ;D Have an AWESOME holiday! :)

  2. Oh nice! Wished Becca came close to my city but she didn't! Oh well! Congrats on your signed books! Hope you had a good birthday!

Hello all! Hope you're all enjoying the summer! I'm currently on holiday in a huge castle in the South of France and enjoying relaxing, playing games, and of course reading a lot!  Today's post is a review of a dreamy summer romance that's perfect for your holiday TBRs! Title:  A Sky Painted Gold Author:  Laura Wood Series:   n/a Pages:   356 Publisher:  Scholastic Date of Publication:  5th July, 2018 Source:  Publisher for review* Synopsis from Goodreads: Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years.

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
