In My Mailbox #12

6 Nov 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.

From Publishers: (Thank you Pan Macmillan!)
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Mythology? Paranormal Romance? I've been lusting after thus since FOREVER. I was so excited when I saw this on my doorstep! Can't wait to dive into this :)

Ashes by Ilsa J.Bick
Another Dystopian fiction! I'm currently in love with dystopian & post-apocalyptic novels, so I'm definitely looking forward to reading this! 

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
I already own a copy of this book, so this will go up on my to-swap list.Oh, and if haven't read the VA series, READ IT NOW.!

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
YAY!!! I can FINALLY finish the Hunger Games trilogy now! I don't know how I've managed to wait this long after that killer cliff-hanger at the end of Catching Fire! Unfortunately so many people who've read the book were disappointed with the ending - was it THAT bad? Ah well, I'm still super excited to finish this series!

What did you get in your mailbox? :)


  1. haha yes! It was definitely my fav as well! Love Dimitri + Rose <3

  2. Oh I just realized this was the last book. Well that one was my fav! :D

  3. Awesome IMM! Absolutely loved Starcrossed & Ashes! And of course the last books in the VA & Hunger Games series are epic as always.

  4. Great mailbox! Loved Last Sacrifice and Starcrossed. I was unfortunately one of those "Mockingjay's ending sucked" people... Hope you enjoyed Ashes! :)

    My IMM

  5. I really hope you love Mockingjay! I know opinions are divided, but I absolutely loved it. It's a war book - it's emotional and it's brilliantly written. Make sure you have tissues ready! ;( LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS AS YOU READ!

    Oooh can't wait to see what you think of Ashes, hear amazing things about that! <3 AWESOME mailbox, enjoy!!

  6. VA is definitely one of my fav series as well!! Greek mythology-it's what initially drew me to this book! Glad to hear you liked it!!

    Yes, and Ashes too :)
