In My Mailbox (11)

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 as you may know already (cos I was STOKED), I won a massive prize pack from Brodie and Lisa's month-long Valentine's Event! I received the rest last week (I've already included Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance in my last IMM) and I CAN NOT WAIT TO READ THEM <3 YAYYYY! I also got four little heart post-its (I LOVE POST IT NOTES) that say, "Things that shouldn't be forgotten"... Cuteeee!

So after I finished Hunting Lila, I lent it to my Aunty Caroline... needless to say she LOVED it, so she bought me Fated :D *squeals* (so she can read it too of course!), she ordered it from Book Depository and when I found out she got it for me, I was absolutely ecstatic so I opened the package and then my whole world came crumbling down (Ahaha!) for the book HAD BEEN CUT. As in when they opened the box or whatever, they opened it with a knife and CUT THE COVER. I was devastated haha, but Aunty Caroline sorted it out ;). AND NOW I HAVE ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL BOOK BY SARAH ALDERSON! *ahem* So, moving on....

As for the uh, SPICE GIRLS MOVIE *jumps up and down* and the little Mario Mushroom were both random little gifts from Mum when she came to visit me :)
I watched the Spice Girls movie on Saturday night and honestly, I never realised how strange it was when I was a kid, they take their overdue pregnant bestfriend out to a club HAHAHAHA ohhh how I love it <3 (It's still obviously awesome)

On Netgalley (I've been catching up on my Galleys lately *high five*), I received two Steampunk novels a while ago (I've kept forgetting about them!), I've only read Girl in the Steel Corset so I'm looking forward to see where the sequel goes and I'm mega excited for Innocent Darkness... Also, how GORGEOUS is the cover. AHHH!

- Fallen In Love by Lauren Kate (Review here)
- Forgotten by Cat Patrick (and heart post-its)
- Faery Tales and Nightmares by Melissa Marr
- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

- Fated by Sarah Alderson

- The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
- Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear

What's in your mailbox :)

Ooh, I know this week is a little late, I was away for the weekend :)


  1. Awesome mailbox bb1 I'm still waiting for one of my packages from The Valentine's event to arrive. :p The 10 book package is taking a while...probably because it's so big haha. I can't wait to read Faery Tales and Nightmares! I'll probably have to read The Wicked Lovely series first though.

    The post-it-notes look soooo cute. <3 I love them too! I just love sticking them everywhere hehehe.

    YAY for you getting Fated and it FIXED! Last year I ordered a book from Amazon UK and the back cover close to the spine had been sliced to about half-way. :/ Mum had to tape it and stuff because Amazon doesn't really fix those kind of things up for you. *sigh* Oh well! It isn't too damaged. (:

  2. OMG OMG OMG! And it's not just ANY IMM! IT'S AN AMAZERING IMM! Oh my word. FATED! YESSSS! EEEEEEEEEE! Taneika, I hope you LOVE it! I read it before HL and loved it, and... seriously SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!'

    EEEEE! And Girl in the CLockwork Collar! I am SO excited about this series, but I seriously still haven't read girl in the steel corset. FAIL.

    Um... uhh... I seriously think I'm as excited about your mailbox as you are! Reviews! Yes! Now! :P
