In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. For it, we highlight books we've received over the past week.
The ones standing to the left are either gifted or won:
- Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater (from my amazing sister because of my A on the Chemistry mid-year).
- The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (from Cecelia at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia).
- So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti (also from Cecelia).
I don't think I've ever mentioned how much I enjoy Susane Colasanti's books here before but I really enjoy Susane Colasanti's books. Think Sarah Dessen with a sprinkle of Courtney Summers.
The big pile in the middle are books I bought:
- The Forest Of Hands And Teeth by Carrie Ryan
- Betrayals by Lili St. Crow
- The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray.
I've only read the first book in the Gemma Doyle series, but I'm excited to read the other two as well.
- Blue Bloods, Masquerade, and The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz.
Again, I've only read the first one, but I enjoyed it more than I expected, so I snatched these up.
- Looking For Alaska by John Green.
The American edition! The Hill Of Content Bookshop had so many editions of books that aren't published in Australia.
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman
- Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty.
These together were only $1 from this amazing second-hand bookstore in Carlton.
The books standing to the right came for review:
- Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (thanks to Penguin).
This was a total surprise, arriving just a few hours after my friend and I were talking about it.
- Fury by Elizabeth Miles (thanks to Simon & Schuster).
Another that came as a surprise.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (thanks to Allen & Unwin!).
I've already read this one, almost immediately after getting it. I lent it to my friend as well, and we spent most of the week gushing about it.
- Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson (thanks to Simon & Schuster).
Another I've already read. My review should be coming in a few days time.
- All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin (thanks to Pan Macmillan).
Not pictured because I'm reading it at the moment. Very good so far!
And also on my camera, I noticed when taking that picture, were photos from the two signings I went to for Maria V Snyder and Kelley Armstrong:
