*These were surprise books that I don't have much info on and they're not already on Goodreads, so no links at the moment. Just cannot be bothered doing librarian duty this evening!

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.


  1. I really want to read The Immortal Rules and I heard a little bit about Skylark. Hope you enjoy all your books!

  2. Yay! I finished Greatest Love Story yesterday and still haven't been able to bring myself to start anything new because I want more. :|

    Island of Wings has a VERY pretty cover, and I *LOVED* The Book Thief just too afraid to go thrusting books at people. xD

  3. Great choice of book for your Book Night handout. I imagine that you'll not have any left once you're done.

    Have a great World Book Night.

  4. The Book Thief is brilliant. I'm giving out Sleepyhead.

  5. I want to be one of these crazy people!!! but I'm too late as usual ;)) I was just thinking what a pretty cover Island of Wings has and that I would love to read your review of Skylark (I didn't dare to request more than 5 books at a time from Netgalley, otherwise they just refuse me), but Skylark and Aurororama are on my to-read list anyway. Enjoy and good luck tomorrow!

  6. I love that cover of the book thief. Good luck with giving them away, I hope the people who recieve them appreciate what a great book it is!

  7. Great haul! I have Immortal Rules as well and can not wait to read it. Happy reading! xoxo

  8. I loved The Book Thief. Didn't realise it was world book day so soon. I might try to take part next year. Am thinking the Julian Barnes book might be my next one from the library.

  9. wow busy girl! I got Let The Right One In :D


  10. Jeez I'd love for someone to thrust books at me xD Where will you go a-thrusting?

  11. I'm so jealous you got Skylark! It looks awesome I was sadly declined :( Immortal Rules was a great read too hope you enjoy it!

    My IMM for the week:
