In my mailbox #4

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren which aims to let book bloggers share what books they have bought, swapped or borrowed during the week.

This week I bought Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams, Huntress by Malinda Lo, Where She Went by Gayle Forman, Hounded by Kevin Hearne and Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep.


And yes, that is two copies of Divergent, I had ordered it from Amazon but it wasn't going to be delivered for ages, I saw it in a bookshop and decided to buy it as I have no patience, got home to find an email from Amazon saying it had been dispatched early and it arrived the next day! So I am giving away one of the copies (see yesterday's post for details on how to enter)

For my Kindle I bought Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison (which I have heard is AMAZING) and
Big Bad Beast by Shelley Laurenston. I love her books they are hilarious and hot!



For review I received Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough-White
which looks right up my street!

  16. The UK version of Divergent is so pretty. I really hate the US one and was thinking of spending the extra money to buy it from amazon uk.

    Enjoy your new books!
