In my last In My Mailbox post (was it two weeks ago?), I noted that I'd had a great week for winning books. It seems now that it's been a good month for giveaway wins, with 7 of these books below arriving as prizes. It really topped off a fabulous week, coming home from my last day of high school classes ever, from muck-up day, from the year 12 break-up excursion, all to find books at the front door for me.
- Break by Hannah Moskowitz
I've wanted this book for what feels like forever, but is actually since I read Hannah's second book, Invincible Summer, and loved it.
- When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
I read When You Reach Me a while back, and absolutely adored it. I'm ecstatic to have won a copy.
- Days Like This by Alison Stewart
This one came from a Goodreads giveaway, which probably made it the most exciting one here. Who actually enters those with a bajillion entrants expecting to win?
- Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Thanks to Penguin for this one! Hopefully I can make time for it in the near future.
- Last Breath by Rachel Caine
I'm reading this one at the moment, and loving it every bit as much as I loved the others in this series. Thanks to Penguin for this one as well, though I have no idea what I'll do with my pre-ordered copy when it arrives...
- Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
I love having a copy of Some Girls Are now to sit snugly between Cracked Up To Be and Fall For Anything. I love their colours, and I really can't wait for the lovely blue This Is Not A Test to complete the rainbow of her book spines.
- Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This is going to be a fabulously creepy read! I've read quite a few books with illustrations/photos lately, and I'm definitely in the mood for more.
- Lola And The Boy Next Door and Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Like everyone else, I completely adore these books. I'd scheduled to review Lola a few days ago, but I was too busy to actually get around to writing it, and then too busy to admonish myself for it.
So what did you guys get this week that was uber-exciting? Or simply, what was uber-exciting for you guys this week? Are any other Aussie year twelves who graduated this week reading this?
