BOOK I RECEIVED FOR REVIEW
THANKS SIMON & SCHUSTER



BIRTHMARKED ( BIRTHMARKED # 1)
by CARAGH O'BRIEN


It was a lovely surprise to receive this in the mail. I have had Birthmarked on my To-Read list on Goodreads at # 165, I'm now upto #1,231 books to read. Can't wait to read Prized #2 in the series due for release November 8th 2011.

BOOKS I BOUGHT



UNHOLY GHOSTS
UNHOLY MAGIC
CITY OF GHOSTS
by STACIA KANE


I borrowed this series originally from my local library and loved it that much , when I saw these books in a book rack at my local IGA store, I snapped them up. This is the 'Downside Ghosts', series. I will be having an interview with Stacia Kane in about a month.

ONCE A WITCH by CAROLYN MACCULLOUGH
&
UNRAVELLED by GENA SHOWALTER 

I bought Once A Witch because via Netgalley I requested Always A Witch, but realised it was book # 2 in 'Witch', series. So I had to buy book  # 1. Also Cassandra Clare has a book blurb on front so I figured if she likes it, I will like it.

Unravelled is book # 2 in 'Intertwined', series by Gena Showalter.

FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK
by MELINA MARCHETTA


Finnikin of the Rock is book # 1 in the 'Chronicles of Lumatere', series by Melina Marchetta. In support of Aussie authors I thought I would have a read. Melina wrote 'Looking For Alibrandi', which was also made into a movie.
'Chronicles of Lumatere' according to Goodreads is showing book # 2 title as , 'Froi of the Exiles'and book # 3 title as, 'Quintana of Charyn'. Neither are released yet.
Melina has written several books.



That's In My Mailbox for this week from me.



HAPPY READING!!

  2. I loved Once a Witch and I am looking forward to Always a Witch. I won an ARC of Birthmarked last year but I still haven't read it yet. Shame on me! I had no idea book two was going to be released this fall. I will have to get moving on that. Great books this week. I hope you both enjoy them!

  9. Hi everyone,

    Wow this week has been uber busy here. I think Marissa and I all visited your IMM's and left comments.

    Thanks to all your comments:D

    I am putting some time aside for Once A Witch as everybody loves it, so I must open it up . My head is kinda buzzing from sooo many good books that are about at the moment.

    We try to follow as many blogs as we come across. So chances are if I visit you and we arent following I will follow as I love reading my dashboard first thing in morning and seeing what everybody is up to and visiting and saying hello:D

    Until next IMM...

    Michelle
