In My Mailbox # 10

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren , find out more about it on her IMM-page.

I didn't think I was going to post an IMM this week, mainly because I thought that I wouldn't have any new books this week, as I'm away from home, but also because I'm still undecided about the future of this blog. But you are many out there who don't want me to shut this blog down, and of course I really would miss blogging about books. I'll be thinking about this a bit longer, if I'll continue it'll be with some changes. Mostly I want it be a bit more personal, I've been struggling trying to make my blog similar to others, follow their 'model'. But that's not who I am, so, I'd adopt a more personal style which I'm aware doesn't suit everybody.

Back to books. I'm currently staying in Switzerland and I convinced my parents to take me to Zürich as I wanted to go the The Bookshop. As it was my birthday-wish (I'm going to be 26 in ten days, Eeeeek! :S) they were kind to do so. As I was about to go into the bookshop my dad said, 'wait, you have to take a picture for your blog'. I hadn't even thought about that..haha.

The Orell Füssli English Bookshop had a great selection of English books, something I'm really not used to as I live in a non-English-speaking country. Though they didn't have all the books I wanted, as they were published too recently. Anyway, it was hard to decide which books to buy, it was quite expensive, and I have a limit on my baggage (20kg), so I settled on these five :). So, this is what I bought, a mix of genres and sub-genres...
Withering Tights - Louise Rennison
Rosebush - Michele Jaffe
Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick
Lament - Maggie Stievfater

So, this is My Mailbox this, what did you all get?
Happy Reading!
