In My Mailbox (9)

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!

So Amy and I are into the third month of our book buying ban AND IT SUCKS.
Imagine my surprise when I actually got books IN THE MAIL this week! I won Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder from a giveaway hosted by Brodie (I LOVE HER) and HarlequinTeen. This will be my first Maria book and I've heard nothing but amazing things about all of her books, so I'm really excited to start this!!


In addition to this surprise, Mum decided to spoil me (I LOVE HER ALSO). I started back up at uni last week so I just got back "home" from my real home, and after spending 4 months at home I feel a little sad :(. Mum ended up sending me The Future of Us and Switched! Turns out Dolly magazine (an Aussie magazine for girls aged 13-17ish) was giving away Switched this month! WHATTT? I mean it has, "exclusive to Dolly" written across the top (see picture!) and whatnot, but I'm still so happy :)

Before I left, Mum and I got us each the first series of The Universe (it was onlt $15 from the Post Office, I love you Australia Post - sometimes) and we got a little over excited over this because we're both big nerds ;)

A huge thankyou to Mum, Brodie and HarlequinTeen <3

  6. Your mom is so awesome!! <3 LOL mine stopped buying books for me a loooooong time ago (because she realized early on that it would make her broke), so I've been breathing books through my babysitting money! x) And Switched was so sweet and awesome and adorable -- and I LOVE that cover too! I really hope you like it! :)

    Amazing mailbox this week, Taneika!! Between all of that awesomeness -- and I totally agree that Brodie is part of that! -- I hope you have a fantastic reading week! :) <3
