Mailbox Monday & Bad Bloggers 19-10-09

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Can you give yourself bad bloggers points? 😉

Somthing Wicked Comes This Way by Ray Bradbury

Always a popular book during the RIP challenges, I couldn’t not grab a copy when it cropped up on Bookmooch. But who’s to blame, well it took a bit of digging, but I do believe that would be Eva!

A Step from Heaven by An Na

Selected because it won the Printz award, and I’m doing the Printz Challenge. :)

The Red Tree by Shaun Tan

Who else is to blame but Shaun Tan’s number one fan, Chris! Well that and it was on display at my local Waterstones and I had loyalty points burning a hole in my card!


For an upcoming blog tour (4th Nov) Quite looking forward to this one! :)

    Oh, oh…I see another Ana/Darren Bookmooch fight coming on :/ You actually BOUGHT The Red Tree!! I can’t find that book anywhere!! I’d love to own it. It seems to be out of print everywhere. I have to check Amazon again. Maybe they’re bringing it back in print now that he’s getting more popular. It’s such a gorgeous book. By far, my favorite of his stuff. And The Niffenegger is so good so far!! So is Something Wicked!! I just love that book! Awesome loot this week :)

      As if I’d survive that fight! 😛

      Yep I bought The Red Tree right off the shelves 😀 Just had a look and The Book Depository has a copy… But that is no help is it, because you’re on a book buying ban, aren’t you? :p

      Gift buyers are evil! I know a copy of Terry Pratchett’s new one has been purchased as a gift for me, and I won’t get to see it until Crimbo!
