In My Mailbox (#34)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It's a perfect way to see who's reading and review what.  Awesome! 



I may have - ah-hem - neglected my IMM last week.  I was all tired, and just couldn't force myself to do one: still don't feel great and am currently hating all winter bugs.  But, I have had an awesome two weeks!  Last week I got a package with the gorgwous dragon book below - one I am seriously excited about.  And this Friday - another package!  It was a box, done up with gorgeous butterfly tape, and was from Sammee, I Want To Read That, so thank you, thank you, thank you!  Anyhoo, this is what I got...
For Review:

Yoshiko and the Gift of Charms (The Land of Dragor, Book One) by Julia Suzuki (Goodreads | Amazon)
Here Be Dragons
I am so excited about this one!  The author was described as "the next JK", so I'm double excited!  And, c'mon!  Who doesn't love dragons?  Plus, the hardback copy I recieved is just beautiful.  Thank you to Steve Brookes/Sociabull for sending it to me!
Ignite (Midnight Fire Series, Book One) by Kaitlyn Davis (Goodreads | Amazon)
A very spooky-looking read here!  Again, very excited!  Thanks Julia!
Bloomsbury Children's Books New Titles: January - June 2012
This is a little catalogue with all of Bloomsbury's upcoming childrens/YA books in.  From pages 18-37, I am fairly certain I want, well, everything! ;)
