In My Mailbox #1

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Check it out and see what other bloggers recieved in their mailboxes this week!

In my mailbox this week:

The Shifter by Janice Hardy

Nya, a fifteen year old war orphan, becomes a pawn in a bigger political game when her uncanny and dangerous ability to draw out peoples pain and give it to someone else turns out to be the only weapon she has to save her sister.

Check back for a review soon.

The Heart and the Bottle (by one of my favourites) Oliver Jeffers.
I won this through a contest by Unbound Podcasts from Harper Collins.

"Once there was a girl, who was full of wonderment at how the world worked. She shared all her dreams and excitement with her father,who always had the answer to every question. That is until one day when his chair was empty, not to be filled again-how would the girl every find meaning in her life again?"

A moving and timeless story with simple and touching iluustrations. I will absolutely cherish this story. Perfect for any age-young to old, and a great reminder that although we risk loss when we love someone, it's worth the risk.
