In My Mailbox January 24, '10

Hey Followers!

Sorry it's taken me so long to post. Had a very chaotic weekend with dad's girlfriend's children and such. Oh the life of a divorced child. *rolls eyes*

This meme is hosted by The Story Siren. Got ONE book this week!

Magic Flutes
by Eva Ibbotson

Goodreads Description:

"Spring, 1922 Tessa is a beautiful, tiny, dark-eyed princess - who's given up her duties to follow her heart, working for nothing backstage at the Viennese opera. No one there knows who she really is, or that a fairytale castle is missing its princess, and Tessa is determined to keep it that way. But secret lives can be complicated. When a wealthy, handsome Eng"lishman discovers this bewitching urchin backstage,Tessa's two lives collide - and in escaping her inheritance, she finds her destiny..."

I've LOVED Eva Ibbotson for years, even though she writes fluffy romance novels. I need all of them for my extensive collection and grabbed this one from the indie book seller that I've just discovered! Going to be buying books ALL the time now.

Yeah, pathetic I know, usually I get more books. But oh well!
