In My Mailbox #13

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours or publishers!


Most of my new books this week are compliments of my two library memberships! It’s been a great way for me to find and hire books I would otherwise have to buy (and most likely ship from overseas) I have a lot of Maria V. Snyder this week – mainly because I’ve heard so many good things about her books! I can’t wait to read them!

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder (purchased)
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder (purchased)
Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder (purchased)
Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White (from Skye via the Aussie Swap!)
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan (library borrowed)
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (library borrowed)
The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong (library borrowed)
The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong (library borrowed)
Stolen by Lucy Christopher (library borrowed)
Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder (library borrowed)

The Study series by Maria V Snyder was only $20 in one pack! I instantly snapped the set up because usually they’re $20 each – or at least they were last time I looked in a bookstore. I’m also thrilled to be able to read Forget-Her-Nots from Skye. I’ll be sending her The Dark Divine this week in exchange. My first book swap, yahoo. I’m so excited! :)

Link up to your mailbox and I’ll be sure to check it out!

    Wow, I love those covers of the ‘Study’ books… very cool!

    I haven’t read any Kelley Armstrong, although I suspect I should… she seems to be very popular.

    Yay for library books!

    I loved The Summoning! (The whole series is brilliant, in fact.) I hope you enjoy it, especially since Kelley Armstrong has a new YA series being released soon! Happy reading :).

    That’s great that you got such a good deal on books that you’ve wanted. That’s always the best! I haven’t read any of these books, but I have had my eye on Stolen. I may get to it someday (my TBR list is out of control!) Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Ooh, I love the covers for the Study series! They are all so pretty. I’ve had the first one in my own TBR pile for ages now, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it. In addition, I adored the Darkest Powers series so I hope you do too! Happy reading! :)

      <3 Hello! Your blog is STUNNING! :D I already commented over there and added you to my blog list :)

      I can't wait to read The Summoning! I have trudged through so many mediocre books lately that I'm desperate for an all-night-read-worthy-book :P

      Yes, after all the comments on them I think they just might be the Australian ones only! Thank you :D (I also received my copy of Tyger, Tyger from the Loving the Reviews challenge today – THANK YOU!)

    Oh my gosh, I love those covers for the poison series! Much better than the newer covers they’ve reissued with all the viney decorations. I prefer the original covers though with the girl. Anyways, awesome series! And Storm Glass is very good as well. Now I want to go back reread all of them! :P

    Hope you have a good week this week!

    The Dead-Tossed Waves is amazing, definitely one of my favourite books :D I really need to start making use of my library… But I haven’t had the chance to go and it’s such a pain having to take the books back… But I suppose if you go there regularly it’s okay. Oh well, great book week, happy reading!

      I’m about halfway through it right now! :D I know, right? That’s what put me off originally – the strain of having deadlines, etc. but there is so much I wouldn’t usually snap up there! :D

      Thank you!

    I really enjoyed the Study series. I read it before it was put into the YA section and there was just something about it that spoke to me. Hope you enjoy all your books!

    My Mailbox has some super cool Dark Days of Supernatural stuff in it!
