IMM 17 1/2 - Teeny tiny edition!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers and readers can talk about the books and booky things they have received in the last week - paper-books, e-books, library loans, swaps, wins, anything!

Last week I got a little excited and thought it was my 17th IMM.  It was actually the 16th, so to bring myself back in line, and due to the teeny tiny size of my mailbox this week, welcome to IMM 17 1/2!  I'm also not doing a v-log because I have a cold AGAIN.  One negative about spring :( (the ONLY negative!).

On Monday I did something I haven't done for nearly two years - I went to a bookstore.  I don't go to bookstores here much because there's usually only a piddly little English section that consists of military or political thrillers and murder mysteries.  But as I was working in the center of Amsterdam, I could go to Waterstones in my lunch-break - hurrah!


Watching the English by Kate Fox 
The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill (published in the US as Someone Knows My Name)
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas 


The Secret of Lies by Barbara Forte Abate

Oh, it wasn't that teeny after all.  Well, compared to last week it is ;-)

How are you enjoying Amsterdam? I was in Berlin last year and had a very interesting time. :) Enjoy your new reads!
