In My Mailbox #35

Hello there and welcome to another installment of In My Mailbox, which is hosted by The Story Siren. I received some lovely books this week and here they are in all their glory:



I randomly came across THE QUEEN MUST DIE by K. A. S. Quinn and both the cover and the plot really intrigued me so I just ordered it. It seems like a great historical YA book and I don't think I've seen any reviews of this, but it seems exciting!

I've been eyeing WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED by Judy Blundell for ages and one day I just decided to buy it. I've heard great things about it so I can't wait to read it!

I haven't even heard of FROZEN IN TIME by Ali Sparkes until it won the Blue Peter award a few weeks ago. I ordered it as soon as I read the synopsis after it received the award and ordered it immediately. I'll discuss why in my review, which will probably be up soon since I'm planning to read this next.

MY SINGLE FRIEND by Jane Costello was a lovely surprise from Simon & Schuster UK - thank you! The book is out on 15 April and it sounds great, plus the author just won of the RNA awards, woohoo!

That's it from me, what did you get? :)

ps: Quick contest reminders!

What I Saw and How I Lied is very good. We used it for a teen reading/discussion group and it definitely fostered a lot of discussion. Have a great reading week :)

I've seen What I Saw and How I Lied in the bookstore, and it looks great- but a bit old [?] for me.

I've just noticed, you have almost 300 hundred followers! Congrats!
