In My Mailbox (2): Books I Bought This Week

In My Mailbox: What is it?
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.It's an opportunity to share the books we've bought or received in the last week!

I feel like I've been waiting for The Scorpio Races and Silence FOREVER. I'd planned on leaving Silence for Christmas (pfft, yeah, right), but I ordered The Scorpio Races at the same time as I ordered Shatter Me, and I've been impatiently waiting ever since. I was so, SO excited when it arrived in my mailbox... right after I returned from the shops with Silence in hand :D

Boneshaker's an interesting one. I'd seen it around, been intrigued by the Steampunky cover, and smiled, shrugged, and walked away. Well, BFF borrowed it from the library after reading Gail Carriger's Soulless series, but decided she didn't want to read it, so passed it off to me. Perks of BFF working at a library? I have it for six months :D

From top to bottom:

  1. The Scorpio Races, Maggie Stiefvater (bought)
  2. Silence, Becca Fitzpatrick (bought)
  3. Boneshaker, Cherie Priest (borrowed)

What'd you bag this week? Share!


  1. I finished Shatter Me yesterday and loved it! I'm interested to hear about The Scorpio Races. Have you read Shiver yet? I haven't, but I do have a copy of it sitting on my shelves.

  2. OMG OMG!!! Silence is absolutely fabulous!!! I hope you love it as much as I do. I really want the Scorpio Races. Enjoy your awesome haul!!!


  3. Boneshake does look really good. I like the way you put a line through unpatiently:) It's super hard to wait for books sometimes.

    Have a great time reading those!

  4. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Your blog is so cute I love it! I followed you (but not through GFC since I'm no longer using it and just anticipating that it's going to be leaving for everyone before long and want to be prepared).

    I have heard mixed things about Scorpio Races, I haven't really checked out Silence too much but the title alone is intriguing! I haven't heard anything about Boneshaker and I'll have to check it out, I'm sort of neutral on steampunk - I've read some good and some not so good LOL but I guess you get that with all genres too.

    Awesome idea to have a blog naming contest too! Good way to get some good ideas! :D

    All best!

  6. Amanda! So glad you ended up loving Shatter Me! I love-loved it. It left me stunned... actually, I stayed up to finish it till, like, 3:15 in the morning... so I was about ready to fall asleep on the floor :P

    @Jaskirat: I just finished Silence and loved it! Was so pleased, because I was REALLY dissapointed by Crescendo!

    @April: thank you! I'm a little stumped on what to do with GFC... hmmm... I've heard a lot positives for Scorpio Races, but a few negs as well. Fingers crossed!

    @Sam: Thanks! I ended up really liking Silence :)

    @Jenna: I'm really intrigued by Boneshaker... it's the first Steampunk book I'll have read other than Gail Carriger's Soulless.

  7. THE SCORPIO RACES. LOVE <3 It's every bit the masterpiece you would expect from Maggie's brilliant mind. And yay, I'm glad you loved both Shatter Me and Silence! How freaking amazing was Shatter Me? Dude. Want. More. Now.

    Curious to read your thoughts on Boneshaker, I've seen it around a lot but never really paid much attention. ENJOY YOUR FABULOUS READS :D

  8. I'm so jealous! I hope you enjoy Silence!

  9. I'm super curious about Scorpio Races. I just suddenly saw it around and everyone seems to love it and now I'm so intrigued! Can't wait to heard what you think about it. :D And I totally need to continue Hush, Hush... Really liked book one, but now I'm too scared to continue after all the hate for book two. o: Lol. Hope you enjoy!

    My IMM!

  14. I just read a few pages from Scorpio Races too and it looks so good. I had to put it down though since I'm reading 2 other books - but I can't wait to get to it!

  15. Silence is awesome! It's my favourite book in the series so far. I'm not sure if I'll like The Scorpio Races, because I wasn't a fan of Maggie's Wolves trilogy. I'll give it a go eventually though. Enjoy!

  16. The Scorpio Races sounds so good! Hope you enjoy your books :)

  17. Oh my Dear Sarah <3 you made me shed tears sniff!! You lovely, lovely lovely girl you!!
    ^.^ muah!

    btw, did you start Scorpio? =9 Holy cow, I really hope you like it!! ^____^

    huhuhuhu! Cheers!

  18. I haven't started it yet! I finished Silence, though, and LURVED IT XD

    I'm reading an eBook at the moment, and a trashy romance novel I'm loving. I was a back-to-back YA kick, and wanted to give Scorpio Races a bit of space so I could enjoy its wonderfulness. You have me so SO excited about it, though!!

  19. Great Mailbox! I haven't read the Scorpio Races, but I'll probably have to read it soon. Hope you'll like it!

  20. Great books! I can't wait for The Scorpio Races. Hope you enjoy your books. Thanks for sharing & for stopping by The Bookish Babes!

  21. I almost bought The Scorpio Races today! I'm kind of sad that I didn't now, but I had to keep myself from buying an insane amount of books today. You will have to let us know how it is!

  22. @Em: Hope you get to it and LOVE it really soon!!

    @Andrea: I so hope you get your copy soon!!

    @Lauren: I have that EXACT same problem. I just placed an order for Christmas presents and had to force myself not to sneak 2 more books in there for me... I mean, it's not as though I have to pay for shipping or anything! I am FAIL.
    Can't wait to read it, and I hope you get a copy soon!

  23. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You're not alone. It never occured to me that there would be other narrators for Harry Potter besides Jim Dale. :-) I love listening to him though.

  24. I loved Silence!

    Check out my IMM! I just started my blog so it is my very first one!

  25. I've read Silence which I really enjoyed and The Scorpio Races which was pure beautiful and awesome! Happy reading!

    A new follower and Aussie bookblogger too! :D
