Weekly Update (#8)

Hi Everyone, 

Donna here! Its only me today as Jessica is sunning herself in Milan. Yep, that's right she's gone away for the weekend. Lucky her! ;) Anyway, hope your all okay. How has your week been? It hasn't been that warm in the UK this week, its been quiet glum. I do hear the sun is suppose to be on its way to us next week though, fingers crossed. 

Just to let you all know that the Spring Blog Carnival Giveaway this morning at 00.00am. So, the winner will be announced shortly. Good Luck to everyone who entered. 

Our new May giveaway will start on Monday and also Name that Book is back too - However these giveaway's will be only open to UK/EU members. Sorry everyone else! But, we will be having more international giveaways for the people in the US a little later on. 

Anyway.................. Lets get started with this weeks updates! 
Donna's In my Mailbox 

Its been another busy week for me here. I keep buying or swapping books and I should really stop. Lol My to be read list is getting out of hand BUT I enjoy getting new, here's what I got this week. 

Brought Books

Swapped books on UK Swap Group.  Thank You Lindsey! 

Kindle Books 
Betrayal was only 71p from Amazon.UK so I honestly couldn't resist it. I was trying to find the paperback copy but for some reason I couldn't. Maybe its not released yet. 

To review
As most of you know I recently read and reviewed Seven Kinds of Ordinary Catastrophes for Amber, I was thrilled to review her work for her as I'm a massive fan of her Fenestra Series. So you can imagine my shock when I received an email from Amber with Wildcat Fireflies ARC attached for me. I actually screamed a little! lol. Even though she's heard it already, I'd just like to say another Thank You to Amber for giving me the chance to read and review it :) 

Books I Won
I won Wither on UK Swap Shop - So excited to read it :) BUT, Wolfsbane, I guess I'm kind of cheating with this one because I haven't actually received it as yet.  I couldn't wait for it to arrive before I told you all that I won it on Twitter on Friday night! Yep, you heard me Twitter! Andrea Cremer was doing a 'hot hot hot' giveaway and all you had to do was write what you want to happen between Shay & Calla in Wolfsbane and I WON!! I screamed when I got the email from Andrea. I'm so excited and I can't wait to review it. :) 

That's it for me this week - What's in your mailbox? Please leave me the link below so I can pop over :) 
Books to look out for in 2011
All links take you to the Goodreads page.

One last thing before I go, there's a new blog called We Fancy Books who have just started up. They are doing a fab giveaway of a voucher of $10 to spend at Amazon. Head on over to there site to enter :) 

That's all for this week. Jess will be back next too.

I loved Born at Midnight and really liked Vampire Crush. Hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did!
I'm also incredibly jealous that you got Wither and Divergent, because I stil haven't ordered copies and I hate myself for it! :D
