In My Mailbox #5

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by the wonderful The Story Siren where we get to drool with one another over the awesome books that came in the post this week.


Bloodlines by Richelle Mead



Legend by Marie Lu



Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout



The Shattering by Karen Healey


Um, can I please have this moment of SQUEEEE?! Bloodlines (which is signed!) and Legend are thanks to an amazing woman named Paula who got copies at BEA. She only sent them last week, so I thought they'd take longer to arrive here in Australia! I had to stop myself from jumping up and down with excitement at the Post Office. She was also super nice and included the Bloodlines tote bag. I LOVE YOU PAULA!! <3

Really excited for Half Blood and The Shattering too. Half Blood is an ebook, but my review can't be posted until a month before release, so you'll have to wait to hear my thoughts on this when I get to it!

Also snagged some great non-fiction books this week on astronomy and a cool one called Signs and Symbols which is a very comprehensive guide that covers practically everything, from mythology,  animals, plants, cultures, human life, cosmos, etc. Really interesting to flick through and I think it's a great resource/inspiration for writers!


What did you get this week?

  12. Awesome!!! I got Legend too and I'm super psyched to read the reviews for Bloodlines in the future.
    And I gotta say, Signs and Symbols sounds like a book I'd totally pick up--why do Asian cultures associate white with death? Little bits of info you can impress people with haha
