IMM#29 or was your week as awesome as mine?

Hey, guys!
It's been an insanely busy week at work, but I also managed to drive to Chester with my hubby, and the town was gorgeous...

Birgit, if you noticed, your bag goes with me everywhere!:)
 We went through few antique shops and I picked up a lovely pair of crystal earrings, and of course Waterstone's in Chester was amazing! and YES, I did get that £1 offer of them at last.

So here is what's in my mailbox this week...

Egalleys

Now, I don't think this is a final cover, because I've seen few different versions of it so far, but the premise sounds fascinating:

Expelled from school, betrayed by her best friend and virtually ignored by her dad, who's never recovered from the death of her mum, Beth Bradley retreats to the sanctuary of the streets, looking for a new home. What she finds is Filius Viae, the ragged and cocky crown prince of London, who opens her eyes to the place she's never truly seen. But the hidden London is on the brink of destruction. Reach, the King of the Cranes, is a malign god of demolition, and he wants Filius dead. In the absence of the Lady of the Streets, Filius' goddess mother, Beth rouses Filius to raise an alleyway army, to reclaim London's skyscraper throne for the mother he's never known. Beth has almost forgotten her old life - until her best friend and her father come searching for her, and she must choose between the streets and the life she left behind.

Hidden London! A god of demolition! I was sold.

This is one of the rare books exploring the world outside of US/UK/Canada. I don't know much of Slovakian folklore and culture but here is my chance to find out!

When Tomas was six, someone — something — tried to drown him. And burn him to a crisp. Tomas survived, but whatever was trying to kill him freaked out his parents enough to convince them to move from Slovakia to the United States.
Now sixteen-year-old Tomas and his family are back in Slovakia, and that something still lurks somewhere. Nearby. It wants to drown him again and put his soul in a teacup. And that’s not all. There’s also the fire víla, the water ghost, pitchfork-happy city folk, and Death herself who are after him.
If Tomas wants to survive, he'll have to embrace the meaning behind the Slovak proverb, So smrťou ešte nik zmluvu neurobil. With Death, nobody makes a pact.

Bought

Here is that £1 each Waterstones offer! *huge grin* You bet that The Name of The Star (which is a great book) goes into my next giveaway!

Wanted to read this book for ages and glad I've waited for UK cover. It's beautiful.

Spied this gorgeous cover in a charity shop in Chester. Me and redheads = instalove.

 Very excited about it, as this book keeps getting very good reviews.

Won

Thanks to Eleusinian Mysteries of Reading and Scholastic!

For Review

Thank you, S.J.!

What's in your mailbox, ladies and gents?

By the way, has anyone seen John Carter already? Yummy visually, crappy pace-wise, the princess Dejah looked absolutely stunning, love line was totally unnecesary. I'll review the film soon.


Now good soundtrack is a must, but no man candy today (we had woman candy aka clothes and jewelry instead).

 
Happy St.Patrick's Day!
Happy Mother's Day!
Whatever you celebrate,
Happy Sunday!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
