In My Mailbox 19 or The One With My Birthday

Dear Blog,
IMM again, hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.
Well, after a couple of weeks where I got no books at all, I suddenly ended up obtaining a load of novels.  However, today's my birthday, which probably explains a part of the amount of books I got this week (and sorry for the lame photograph).  I officially have too many books now,  but what the heck.
Anyway:


FOR REVIEW
Alas, I was unable to attend the Random House Blogger Brunch, but this week I did get sent through:
Long Lankin  by Lindsey Barraclough (not pictured because it was too huge)
The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
The Kissing Game by Aidan Chambers
In The Sea There Are Crocodiles by Fabio Geda


BOUGHT
I'm Not Scared by Niccolo Ammaniti
Whisper My Name by Jane Eagland
Zelah Green by Vanessa Curtis

FROM THE LIBRARY
Keeping You A Secret by Julie Anne Peters
Hinadori Girl volume 2 by Mari Matsuzawa

GIFTS
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (just about to start this)
Fruits Basket volume 5 by Natsuki Takaya
Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo (Now I can re-read it to pieces)
An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro

So that pretty much sums up my bookish week.  I'd better be off now.  Monday to Friday I'll be on holiday, so don't expect any more reviews and such from me for the next week.
