In My Mailbox is a weekly meme, hosted by The Story Siren.

I'll be sharing the books I've received the past week, either via my mailbox/library/store bought. Again this week I haven't got any books from the library, which I'm pleased about as I'm working on diminishing my tbr pile.

Books Received:

Eighth Grade Bites: The Vladimir Tod Chronicles by Heather Brewer
An ARC received from Puffin (thank you!) - I now have a review pending for this one, just waiting for confirmation if it's ok to be posted yet :)  This is a UK release as it's already available in the US.

The cover on this is lovely, really eye catching, and unusually, the author's name is alongside the edge of the book.

Da Vinci: His Life and His Legacy by Catherine McGrew Jaime

Leonardo the Florentine by Catherine McGrew Jaime

Books/ebooks won:

Stan's Leap by Tom Duerig

Heralded similar to Lord of the Flies, this looks like an interesting read.

Kind thanks to Literary R&R for the giveaway.

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev (ebook)

I love the cover on this, really colourful and vibrant.

Thanks to Shy at The Bibliophile's Journal

Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George (ebook)

I've previously read a different Jessica Day George book and really enjoyed it, so hoping this will be just as good :)

Thanks to Shy at The Bibliophile's Journal


I also won these hot mix of  6 ebooks in GNB Stack's Gratitude Giveaway

Books Bought:
Beg Me by Shiloh Walker (ebook)

 Sir Cumference and the First Round Table (A Maths Adventure)
by Cindy Neuschwander

-For the Young Reviewers

I've also received more ebook requested reviews from authors and publishers, so have now closed my review request list for a while.  Looking back over November I've read over 35 books....not bad going :)
