In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature by The Story Siren which allows us to drool with one another over the books that we received or bought this week!

The Greek Myths book is technically my mums because she obviously has more money to spend on books than I do *sobs*... so I'm borrowing it :D

I'm also not going to start The Lost Hero until I read the Percy Jackson series. But, of course, I can find every single instalment except for the first one!! It's sooo annoying!!

Matched by Ally Condie
The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus #1) by Rick Riordan
Usborne Illustrated Stories from the Greek Myths
Against the Odds by Marjolijn Hof
Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick


I seriously need to get reading my Netgalleys, I have waaaay too many to read! I absolutely can not wait to read Double though, it sounds amazing!

Double by Jenny Valentine
Galaxy Games: The Challengers by Greg R. Fishbone

What's in your mailbox this week :) 


  1. Oh, man! I want a copy of Double for the cover alone! I haven't read Matched, but I *have* just borrowed a copy. I've heard such amazing things! Look forward to your review :)

  2. Don't you just love Net Galley. Old follower. Net Galley is like a book blogger's best friend. Great book. Come visit me as well.

  8. Awesome books :) I have a copy of Ashes sitting on my shelf all alone..I think I should start it soon! Matched looks amazing -definitely have to start it soon! (although I've heard Crossed isn't as good?)I love the cover of Double!!!
    Hope you enjoy all your books!

  9. You've got some great books this week. Especially jealous of Double (I got turned down for that one and Everneath - booooo). Enjoy!

  10. YAAAY, TANEIKA!! You have Matched!! :) I honestly ADORE that series with all of my heart and I really hope you love it too! And LOL I totally know what you mean about The Percy Jackson series -- I really want to start it too but my library is always uncooperative with which ones it carries! x) Don't you just hate when that happens? LOL!

    Awesome mailbox this week, Tanieka! I hope you love ALL of your books! :) <3

  11. Thanks :) I'm surprised I got Double! I got rejected for Hallowed, Everneath, Under the Never Sky and all the other ones I was desperate for!!

    I'm really looking forward to Matched Mimi, it sounds extremely intriguing! I think I might just go into the bookstore tomorrow and order the first Percy Jackson :)

  12. Oooh Ashes and Double, I can't wait to read!! I've read a lot of positive reviews for Ashes, so I can't wait to see what you think. Also.... *steals your mum's copy of The Greek Myths book*

    I loved Matched! Not a huge fan of the sequel, Crossed, but the first in the series is fantastic <3 ENJOY!!

  13. Ooh awesome haul! Ashes looks awesome!!
