In My Mailbox #7

10 Sep 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they've borrowed, received in the mail or bought in the past week.

Fateful by Claudia Gray
I'm not a fan of Claudia Gray's Evernight series, but I have a feeling I'll like Fateful! Werewolves + Titanic = my thing :) Plus I couldn't resist the shiny cover!

Firelight (Firelight #1)by Sophie Jordan
I just searched this up on goodreads, and it seems to have quite a few negative reviews, but I actually like it at the moment (I'm almost half way through). It's pretty exciting reading about dragons <3 Must find more books on dragons now! 
Ultraviolet by R.J Anderson
This one sounds interesting - a girl in a mental institute after having murdered a girl at school. There seems to be a lot of mystery in this book & I love books that keep me guessing until the end! Excited to read this one!
Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) by Rachel Hawkins
This one's about witches. I actually don't know much about this, but I saw it on display at the library and it's a hardcover (it's so hard to find a hardcover YA novel here!) so I couldn't resist :)

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins (thanks to JESS! <3 You're awesome!)
I've already read this one & loved it!! PEETA <3 It's nice to have my very own copy sitting on my bookshelf! Now I'll have to go buy Catching Fire and Mockingjay!
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See book pack! (Thanks Bloomsbury Aus.!)
I won this after I signed up for Bloomsbury's newsletter! I also got 2 movie tickets (awesome! Must go after exams!!) and an excerpt of The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller + 20% off Dymocks voucher! Haha, I feel so lucky! This one's about a girl in 19th century China and i think it's similar to Memoirs of a least from what I've read online. My mum's going to read this first (I actually think she's excited to read it!) haha.

    Enthusiast Web page is one particular of the most helpful business enterprise programs of Facebook that can be utilised by organizations to reach their likely or targeted customers. It would be a large reduction for an on-line organization if they don't develop and create their individual a single.
