In my mailbox #6

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren which aims to let book bloggers share what books they have bought, swapped or borrowed during the week.

This week I received Forgive My Fins by Tara Lynn Childs from the fantastic Templar publishing and I will be participating in a Forgive My Fins blog hop on its UK release so look out for that soon!
I also received an ARC of Starcrossed by Jospehine Angelini from MacMillan Children's books. I am reading it right now its fantastic.

I bought a couple of books this week:
Blood Magic By Tessa Gratton
(I did a happy dance when it was delivered)
I also bought from WH Smiths:
A Monster Calls By Patrick Ness,
My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece by Annabel Pitcher
and Black Swan Rising by Lee Carroll 

I also got a few book swaps this week:
Numbers by Rachel Ward and
Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkes (I read Perfect Chemistry recently and loved it)

For review I received a copy of Winterbourne by Augusta Blyth by the author which looks right up my street.

I also got a few books from the Simon and Schuster galley grab that look pretty amazing.

Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
The Day Before by Lisa Shroeder
Sometimes it Happens by Lauren Barnholt
Wildfire by Karsten Knight
All the Things You Are by Courtney Sheinmel

Luckily I got a new bookcase this week too!
