Mail on Sunday #8

AKA In My Mailbox is a meme inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by the lovely Kristi over at The Story Siren. It's a look at all the Lit related items...books or otherwise, we've acquired during the week.


This week I got one Item from My Wish List and borrowed two from the library.


Wings by Aprilynne Pike
The cover of the version I got is far different from the one  I've seen on other book blogs. My pic doesn't do it any justice. It's eradescent and a little shiny. I've got a fair few books to read before this one but I'll get there soon enough!
Goodreads


My Championship Year by Jenson Button
I lurve F1 and am a total JB fan too. I don't really read biographies but was told that this one's a really great read, chronicling his WDC win. I thought borrowing it would be safer...I hate buying things then end up hating them.
Goodreads


The Game of Triumphs by Laura Powell
I borrowed the sequel last week...realised it was the sequel and decided to get the first just so I know what's going on Luckily I didn't start on the 2nd one.
Goodreads


Well that's me this week...what did you get?

I have that cover of Wings too - it's pretty but I still prefer the US one. You've also just reminded me that I've had The Game of Triumphs on my bookshelf for the longest time... I really should make time for it. The storyline sounds so original. Hope you enjoy!

The Game of Triumphs storyline does sound original! Shame I've got a fair few books before I get to it...Hope you like it too!

Te US Wings version is simple and elegant...I really like the one I've got but it does look a bit young compared to the US one.
