In my mailbox #7

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 a few books from The Book Depository, I was easily tempted by their 10% off offer.
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
The Taker by Alma Katsu
Blood Law by Karin Tabke
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler
Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz

I was also tempted by The Works 3 books for £5 offer
 (I swopped the first and bought the last books in the series seperately)
I'm sure I've read the first book but it was ages ago
this is one of the series I really want to read.

I received my first RAK (Random Act of Kindness) from the lovely Nat @ Dark Fantasy
RAK is hosted by Book Soulmates
 I was so excited at getting Flawless  I read it straight away!

I am ashamed to admit I have never read The Mortal Instruments series (sorry!)
so this is another series I want to read and managed to get them in a few swops
thanks to Lindsey at UK Swop Shop

I also got another 2 swops from RISI.
(I've been swop crazy this week my postman looks exhausted)
Torment by Lauren Kate
Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler

I also got a fab bargain at WH Smiths these 5 books for £7.99!
Tithe by Holly Black
Generation Dead by Daniel Waters
Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
Poison Garden by Sarah Singleton
Dark Secrets by Elizabeth Chandler
