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 got a few fun things in my mailbox this week.

First something non book related. I LOVE Gremlins. The movie brings back memories of sitting and watching it with my sisters and I've always loved Gizmo.

One of my sweet penpals (who is really now more of a friend) sent me a present. A Christmas ornament of Gizmo!! It's seriously the cutest thing ever and I squealed when I got it in the mail.

He is so cute he will be in all my pictures this week :)

So I got 2 books this week.

Purchased -

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (goodreads)

From the library -

Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead (goodreads)

So I pre-ordered 2 copies of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and ONE of them was shipped early. I am not sure when the second one will arrive (I expect this coming week) so you can expect to see it again.

I have read Shadow Kiss and LOVED it. This series just gets better and better. My heart was kind of broken at the end of this one though. :(

What books did you get this week? Leave me a comment and I will check it out.

Happy reading everyone!


  1. OMG HE IS SO EFFING CUTE <3 I love Gizmo! Gosh, I haven't seen the Gremlins movies in YEARS. But I watched them so many times while growing up. You're making me want to rewatch :)

    Oh I am so glad you loved Shadow Kiss. That ending was just.... *sobs* I think it's one of my favourite in the series because of that. It's terrible, but... I love it. Am I sadistic? Also: Rose/Christian make a BADASS team!

  2. Brodie,

    Isn't he? I think I bounced around and did a happy dance when I opened the package.

    Rose and Christian are totally bad ass. I love him so much right now because of it. Haha.

  3. I can't wait to read Mara. I am so excited for it and the cover is beautiful! OMG, Gizmo is so cute! I want one! I hope you enjoy your new books.
