In my mailbox # 5

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:
Forgotten by Cat Patrick,
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
(I've now read both and shed a few tears)
Warm Bodies by Issac Marion,
0.4 by Mike Lancaster (freaky cover or what!),
White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick,
A certain Slant of Light by Laura Whilcomb
Game of Thrones George R.R. Martin
(I am now addicted to the TV series, I've told my husband I am "enjoying the story" *snigger* I am mostly enjoying Jason Momoa)

For my Kindle I bought Stay by Deb Caletti

I  also won a copy of Guardian by Elita Daniels over at the fantastic bellebooks
(I was very excitied as I never win anything!)

And for review I have Hereafter by Tara Hudson

I nearly forgot, I got Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough in a swap and rather fantastically Jenny also sent me a Maltesers hot chocolate sachet. How fab is that?

What was in your mailbox this week?


  1. I loved 0.4 :)

    Every time I see A Certain Slant of Light I pick it up and consider buying it yet I still haven't ever got up to the counter with it - I'm not entirely sure why.

    Hope you enjoy all your new books (:

  2. What a fantastic week! I would love everyone of your choices :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog - I think I might try and read Hereafter soon as well, I love the cover.

  3. Wow, so many great books for you! I hope you'll enjoy them. :)

    (My IMM)

  4. I keep meaning to pick up If I Stay as I fancy a good cry at the moment. Have to agree the cover to 0.4 is very creepy - think that's why I like it! :)

    Some great books there - haven't seen Game of Thrones yet...sounds like I need too!

  5. Wow- all your books are either ones I've read or want to read! I absolutely adored A Certain Slant of Light, I hope you like it too (I think there's a sequel coming out?)I also loved Once A Witch and 0.4
    I really want to read Forgotten, Warm Bodies (theres rumours of a film being made I think), and If I Stay. Great week, hope you enjoy your books!

  6. Nice books!Hope you'll enjoy them!
    I'm afraid Hereafter was nothing like what I ex[ected but I'm hoping you'll enjoy it more than I did :)

  7. Awesome haul! I can happily say that I gave If I Stay, 0.4 and Stay all 5 stars! Happy reading!

    Stay is an absolute 5* book, I had an ARC of that one and I can't wait for the paperback to come out :)
    Guardian looks interesting, I will check it out.
    Hereafter was a nice read, I had an ARC and I really liked Once A Witch :)
    And that was probably the longest comment I ever wrote, I'll shut up now lol

  12. I am super Jealous you have forgotten!! Amazon UK says its not out til June

  13. Nat - it's very strange as I got if from Amazon! I think it must have been from a private person rather than Amazon the company. I can't remember.
