In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren.

This week I got a couple of books.  I've already read one of them and the other I'm reading at the moment. The first book I got was from the library and it is:

Losing It by Sandy McKay




Fifteen-year-old Johanna Morrison is in hospital, writing letters to her best friend, Issy. As part of her therapy Jo is not allowed to leave her room, use the phone, have visitors or even wash her hair. Not unless she agrees to eat. But Jo doesn?t want to eat because to her that would mean giving in and losing what little control she has over her life. Jo suffers from anorexia and her condition has reached crisis point. For now, contact with Issy is the only thing keeping her sane. (Taken from Christchurch City Libraries Website)

The other book was one I got from
NetGalley which is:
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa



Meghan Chase has never fit in at her small-town high school, and now, on the eve of her 16th birthday, she discovers why. When her half brother is kidnapped, Meghan is drawn into a fantastical world she never imagined--the world of Faery, where anything you see may try to eat you, and Meghan is the daughter of the summer faery king. Now she will journey into the depths of Faery to face an unknown enemy . . . and beg the help of a winter prince who might as soon kill her as let her touch his icy heart. The Iron King is the first book in the Iron Fey series. (Taken from Goodreads)

That was my week in the way of books.  Can't wait to see what everyone else thinks.
