In My Mailbox #18

8 Jan 2012

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.

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (Thank you Walker Books)
(HASDHASIDHSAODHSAO IT'S CLOCKWORK PRINCE!!!!! I've been holding it off for a while :S I need to find a time when I know I won't be interrupted so I can finish the entire book in one go :D)
Hallowed by Cynthia Hand (Thank you HarperCollins)
(Umm...I'm obviously the only person in the world who isn't a fan of this series/trilogy :S Everyone's giving this 4-5 starts (the latter being the majority) but I'm 50 pages in, and already bored.. )
Fated by Sarah Alderson (Thank you Simon & Schuster)

Cinder by Marissa Meyer 
(Heard fantastic things about this! Will be reading it soon , (if not tomorrow)!)
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff  
(Okay, so I went on a major book shopping spree at Dymocks, and I snagged this for only $2!!!!I loved Yovanoff's Smoulder, so I'm looking forward to reading this one!)
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver 
(Lauren Oliver made a fan out of me after I read Delirium. I'm definitely interested in reading Oliver's debut!)
Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes 
(This was another bargain :D I haven't read a werewolf book in ages, so I'm excited for this <3)
Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide by Michelle Rowan, Richelle Mead
(Now, I need to rest of the VA series to complete my collection :D [meaning, I have no collection at the moment :S] )

It's FATED! :P Oh maaan, Before I Fall had me sobbing like crazy at the end. Make sure you have tissues on standby. I LOVE Cinder and Raised By Wolves, can't wait to see what you think!

    Oh noes about Hallowed :( I really enjoyed Unearthly, so I hoooope Hallowed will be a hit for me. Sorry you're not enjoying it!

  19. Great books this week! Clockwork Prince and Cinder were amazing. I also got Raised By Wolves, but for my nook! I hope that you enjoy your new books!

  20. I'm really envious of your review copies! I'd give up bed to read Hallowed. And I love the UK cover. All the covers for these books are so enticing and beautiful.

    Have an amazing reading week!

    Hallowed did take awhile for me to get into. Don't worry, it does pick up a little bit. Mostly towards the end. It's one of those kinds of books! Don't give up! The second one was definitely better!

    Here's my IMM

    Have a GREAT day!
