IMM (#15) 27/11/11

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren as a way of showing off our addiction to books every week. You can learn more about this here.


I'm bacccck!

So I've vanished this month...In this month I had a week in Amsterdam (lovely place!) and then I had my undergraduate graduation event (see pic...) and thennn my laptop blew up!

Currently writing this on the partners home office computer...it smells funny in this office and there is a lot of paperwork everywhere! He also doesn't use a mouse, and prefers a graphics tablet at pen...that makes it interesting trying to click, copy and paste!

On to the books!

So this is over two weeks:



Bought
Eve - Anna Carey
Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson
Della Says OMG - Keris Stainton (not pictured because its been lent to the sister in law!!)


I've heard a lot about Eve, and it really excited me at first but I tried to read little reviews and so far I'm really enjoying it! Della was polished off in around 2 hours with lots of giggling very loudly and getting weird looks off the in laws!

ReaditSwapit
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (and other stories) - F.Scott Fitzgerald


So I always thought that Benjamin Button was an epic novel to make a 3 hour epic film in which very little happened (I didn't enjoy it!) but I now find out it is only 20 pages long! Neeedless to say a little miffed with ReaditSwapit as the person declared it was only that story and I feel a little cheated out of a £40 text book! But Oh Well,...Free Book!

In the entire laptop saga, I have been attempting to write posts on my phone, to then edit them at work or using Mikes computer so hopefully that will work till I get a new computer next week!

Can't wait to see what everyone else got in their mailbox! And if anyone can advise any graduation novels please can you let me know? =D

Love Always!

  5. I want to read Eve but I heard it is sad and disturbing. Most dystopians are but I'm just kind of at my limit on that after reading Glow and Wither. Hope you enjoy it! It has a gorgeous cover.

    Check out my IMM! I just started my blog so it is my very first one!
