On My Bookshelf (4)

Same disclaimer - probably someone's idea before mine, similar to IMM, etc. A lot of books, I'm not gonna put them all up, partly because some of them I still haven't read from previous OMB, and partly because I'm not at home and can't remember what they all are! 

Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham
A first crush. An unexpected friendship. A dream come true. Dear Dylan! Thanks so much for your email and I'm sorry about my last one when I said I love you. I hope you don't think I'm a weirdo mentalist?!!! It's just that I was watching Oprah yesterday and she said we should all say we love each other a whole lot more. Not to everyone of course. There's no way I'd tell my scummy step-dad that I love him because that would be lying. But the thing is, sometimes when I watch you on TV, I feel as if you're talking just to me and it makes me feel less alone. I know you probably get loads and loads of fan mail but I wanted to ask you - could we be e-mates? Yours hopefully, Georgie xxx.

My first book direct from the author! Thank you so much Siobhan!

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
When a local boy is killed by wolves, Grace's small town becomes a place of fear and suspicion. But Grace can't help being fascinated by the pack, and by one yellow-eyed wolf in particular. There's something about him - something almost human. Then she meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away...

Another present from Sophie; I also bought the next two instalments of the trilogy, Linger and Forever - the covers are so pretty!

Prom Nights From Hell (anthology)
In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot ("How to Be Popular"), Kim Harrison ("A Fistful of Charms"), Michele Jaffe ("Bad Kitty"), Stephenie Meyer ("Twilight"), and Lauren Myracle ("ttyl") take bad prom nights to a whole new level--a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper--and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look. From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

Ah, what would I do without 3 books for a fiver? This looks so good, and I'll be honest, I bought it for Meg Cabot.


  1. I haven't heard of Dear Dylan, but I have read the whole of the "wolves of mercy falls" and Prom nights from hell. They were both very nice reads :) Hope u enjoy them too
    Look forward to reading your reviews

  2. Yay for Dear Dylan :) And, of course, the amazing Shiver. The Meg Cabot story is excellent and so is the Kim Harrinson one.
