My friend Carla of The Crooked Shelf is celebrating Aussie YA Month for the whole month of November and she has some great posts lined up. It’s only been a week or so but I’m really enjoying her posts – my favorites so far include her interview with one of my favorite authors, Melina Marchetta, and her post about where to buy Aussie books. I’m over there today for a guest post about how awesome Aussie YA is and how I wish we had something similar here in the Philippines. Head on over there to check it out!
In keeping with the Australian theme, I met up with a friend of mine who just came home from Australia and what did I ask him to get for me? Books, of course! Here’s what’s In My Mailbox:
Australian editions of Finnikin of the Rock and On the Jellicoe Road – these make me want to collect all of Melina Marchetta’s books in their original editions even if they’re more expensive. And because I talked about it a bit on Twitter, I decided to include the rain booties that I got from Ready for Rain. Aren’t they cute? Also, notice the sticker on Finnikin’s cover? Let me zoom in and show you:
Makes me even more excited to read it! But maybe not until I get to order its sequel? What about the rest of you, any guest posts or newly acquired books this weekend? Let me know with a comment!
