RAK thank you and In my mailbox #21

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.

I had the most amazing book week all due to my bestest blogging pal C.J Duggan who sent me 4 AMAZING books all the way from Australia as a Random Act of Kindness (RAK). Two of which are Aussie titles that I have been desperate to read and are not available in the UK. If that wasn't amazing enough C.J also sent me some chocolates which I promptly ate before remembering to take a picture. Chocolate never lasts long in my house. Thank you so much C.J, I am eternally grateful.

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar
Saving June by Hannah Harrington
(double squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee)
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
(I've been wanting to read this for ages)
Paper Towns by John Green
(love the cover I've never seen that version before)

For review

Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
(Naff UK cover but it sounds fantastic and has had some great reviews already)

I bought

Good Oil by Laura Buzo
(another Aussie title I have been desperate to get my hands on)

So that was my mailbox this week, what did you get in yours?
Leave me a link and I will drop by.
