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!

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.

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.

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

Whoa Whoa... wicked cover for Wings!! This is the first time I've ever seen it! Very Cool!!

Enjoy your reads.

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!

@ Chas...yeah it's good isn't it!

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.
