In My Mailbox (9) // WARNING: IMAGE HEAVY

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren.

This is a special week this week:--
1, because I received 19 books in one week &
2, because I've got PHOTOS!!! *throws confetti*

This one will be formatted differently... I have 4 piles of books, and so I'll have 4 "headings" . . . So, let's get started!

For Review {5} 

- I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
- Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
- The Eternal Ones by Kierstan Miller
- Across the Universe by Beth Revis (ARC! Super super excited and ecstatic that I get to read this one early~~)
- Siren by Tricia Rayburn

I'm so excited to read these ones! I've heard great things about each of these books, so I hope I enjoy them as well. I love the shiny parts of each book cover; they're all really pretty. It's really cool that Penguin Aus receives the books a month~ in advance, which is something I never really ever contemplated before. I've requested for four more titles, though only 1 of them is available right now (?).

Thank you thank you thank you Penguin Australia for these books!

Won {15}
Thanks a lot, everyone for the great books!

Contemporary Love
Hosted by Nancy at Ravenous Reader

- Hold Still by Nina LaCour Signed
- The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson Signed
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman Signed
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
- Party Girl by Sabrina James (ARC)

My first boxed up package! Seriously, such beautiful books and I'm excited to read HOLD STILL, for I had already read the other three (but have not received that same cover before). I will no doubt re-read, though.

Clockwork Angel
Hosted by Zoë Marriott, author of The Swan Kingdom, Daughter of Flames, and upcoming Shadows on the Moon!

- Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
- Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
- Daughter of the Flames by Zoë Marriott Signed
- Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
- 2 bookplates signed by Zoë, as well as a magnet (both not in picture) and a note. :)

I was only expecting to receive CA, but Zoe got all sneaky and threw in a whole lot more! I've been wanting to read Shiver for a while, and I'm so happy that I get to read Daughter of the Flames while I wait for Shadows of the Moon to release, in 2011.

Winter Flings
Hosted by Steph Bowe, through Hachette Children books!

- The Silver Blade by Sally Gardner (a historical YA fiction, French revolution!!)
- Skins: The Novel by Ali Cronin
- Night World by L.J. Smith
- I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You (#1, Gallagher Girls) by Ally Carter
- The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike

Now, with this one I'm disappointed. I was not meant to end up with Night World. I do not want it, to be honest. I want my copy of Ash by Malinda Lo!!! Deceptive advertising? On Steph's part? On Hachette's part? Not sure. I'm still trying to get this sorted out. I emailed Steph, but she hasn't responded yet -- I guess I'll just be patient for now and hope for the best. In other words, I'm stoked to get to read Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls! :D

Swag {1}
- 2 bookplates signed by Zoë, as well as a magnet (both not in picture) and a note. :)

Signed books! :D


Note: eBooks will only be counted in here if they are for review/won. Netgalley is NOT included in this.
That is one beautiful bunch of books!

My bookshelf is officially full, now. I anticipate that the coming week will be quiet in terms of new book arrivals, which suits me just fine. Erin @ Penguin will be sending some more books in the coming months, titles which I am so so so excited to receive, read and review!

Wow so many excellent books this week. It's a good thing you already have read Before I Fall and The Sky is Everywhere. You would definitely have to start with those ones otherwise. Happy Reading!

Hello there! Following you now too! So exciting to find other Aussie bloggers. There's so few of us...
Wow. You have an amazing mailbox! Quite a few I own or want to read. Clockwork Angel and Shiver are awesome. I've got Siren out from the library atm and really should read it instead of letting it gather dust for a month til they send me a letter saying it's overdue. Woops! Hahaha enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
