In My Mailbox.....


This is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives us a chance to showcase the books we got during the week.

I have two weeks worth of books to show you! My mailbox was pretty awesome this week.


*Can you spot my Mockingjay pin?!




My library book haul -

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand (goodreads)
A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford (goodreads)

For review

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (goodreads)
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga (goodreads)

Purchased

Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross (goodreads)
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally (goodreads)
The Magicians by Lev Grossman (goodreads)

A special thank you to Harper Collins Canada for Tiger Lily. I squealed and danced around when it was delivered. I am so excited to start this one. I adore Peter Pan (especially Tinkerbell) and I am curious to see the story from Tiger Lily's point of view!

A big thank you to Hachette Group Canada as well for I Hunt Killers. I have heard some amazing things and Kelly from KellyVision's review made me want to grab it immediately. Hoping to fit it in before I leave for NYC in about 6 weeks!

I won a Mockingjay pin from Chapters/Indigo. It's Canada's large bookstore chain. They had a contest when the movie came out on Twitter. The pin is awesome and I will be wearing it when when I go see Catching Fire!

The cover of Kill Me Softly is GORGEOUS! So stunning. I am excited to start this one. I have heard Catching Jordan is cute, so decided to give it a try.

What did you get in your mailbox?

  10. Catching Jordan and The Magicians are two familiar titles here - have they won any major awards? All your books here look crisp and oh-so-brand-new, I'm sure they smell great. :) Have fun with all of them.

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
