In My Mailbox #25

Sunday, May 22, 2011


In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

Well this week I have lots of books since it has been 3 weeks.  Also yesterday I attended a library books sale.  So I picked up a bunch of bargains from there.


WON:
Divergent by Veronica Roth - YA dystopia 2011 debut.  Thanks to Brodie @ Eleusinian Mysteries and Harpers Collins.
The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan - YA thriller.  Thanks to Jacinda & Jasmine @ The Reading Housewives of Indiana.

BOUGHT:
Die For Me by Amy Plum - YA paranormal 2011 debut.  I have already read this but my copy has arrived.  Favourite read of mine.  You can check out my review here.
We Always Have Summer by Jenny Han - YA contemp and third book in the series.  Loved the other two (book #2 review will be posted tomorrow) and am excited to read the final book.
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John - (KINDLE) YA contemp.  Read this while I was away and it is a standout read.
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong - (KINDLE) YA supernatural.  Love Armstrong's books so looking forward to trying this new series. 

THROUGH TRADE:
Magic Hands by Jennifer Laurens - YA contemp.  Looks like a lot of fun.
The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti - YA contemp.  I am huge fan of Caletti even though her books are hit and miss

LIBRARY SALE:
I got a bunch of books mostly older Aussie titles including Wilful Blue by Sonya Harnett which I have been searching for.  Also Dreamland by Sarah Dessen.  All for $4.50.  I won't list them all but rather just show you a picture.

What did you get in your mailbox?

Eep, one of these days I'll have to buy Five Flavors of Dumb, my library is SO slow in getting it in. I've read so many wonderful things about it, can't wait to read your review :) I hope you like The Gathering and Divergent~~ both were awesome! Also, Dreamland, it's the 'odd one out' for Dessen books but still so fab :) Happy reading nic!

Grats on Divergent! Glad you were Brodie’s three, ‘cos somehow my three winners weren’t bloggers I think. I still have to read Violence 101 which I have on my shelf.

Alexa said...

Oh enjoy! I hope you love Divergent, I think you will love it and Four *swoons* a little :)

Interested ot hear what you think of Die for Me I keep picking it up in the book shop and then not buying it, but I'm not sure what is putting me off. The irresistibly drawn thing I think :)

Misha said...

Enjoy all your books!
