In My Mailbox (4): 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'm back with another mailbox... and it's worse than ever before. If this doesn't stop, Husbandman will stage an intervention... it may involve book-burning.

In my defence: I was given monies by family for Christmas... and spare monies equals BOOKS. And when Kmart and Target have the Vampire Academy books fr $11 each... it equals a shelf space problem. So, without further delay!

From left to right, then top to bottom:

  1. City Of Fallen Angels, Cassandra Clare
  2. Clockwork Prince, Cassandra Clare
  3. Last Sacrifice, Richelle Mead
  4. Spirit Bound, Richelle Mead
  5. Shadow Kiss, Richelle Mead
  6. Blood Promise, Richelle Mead
  7. Bloodlines, Richelle Mead 
  8. Graveminder, Melissa Marr

What'd you bag this week? Share!


  1. I'm yet to read Vampire Academy!! Love Kmart especially, so cheap <3 awesome haul :)

  2. I love buying books from Kmart and Big W, but I always end up buying a lot more than I planned to! Fabulous mailbox this week, Richelle Mead and Cassie Clare are two of my favourite authors!

  3. @Taneika: I've only read Vampire Academy, and everyone keeps telling me I need to read the rest, PLUS I really liked the sound of Bloodlines (even more so than the VA series), so decided to read the series so I could read Bloodlines :D

    @Lux: Oh my goodness, YES! Kmart and Big W are both awesome and EVIL. I think Book Depository belongs in the basket as well :D

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cassie Clare!

  4. Can you believe how much cheaper books are in Kmart and Target and Big W compared to the bookstores?? No wonder Borders went bust! I'm going to repeat what others have said to you and say that you NEED to read the rest of the VA series!

  5. Tsk Tsk Sarah! But as I'm sad, I converted $11 into pounds and it turns out around £7! Which is quite cheap! As I've probably told you before, the Mortal Instruments series is my absolute favourite. City of Fallen Angels' ending will break your heart as will Clockwork Prince's so look out for that.

    Great haul this week and thanks so much for checking out my YouTube video :)

    Reading is my cup of tea

  6. Ahhhhhh, you have so many awesome books, Sarah!! I LOVE your new stash of Richelle Mead books (Isn't she just AMAZING?), and I seriously need to get my own copy of her books too! I only own Bloodlines right now, but I think that one's my favourite out of all of them! ;) And I'm mentally cheering about your CoFA and Clockwork Prince, too -- oh my gosh, they were both too awesome for words!!

    Amazing mailbox this week, Sarah!! I really hope you love every single one of your books, and I can't wait to read your reviews! :) <3

  7. I've been seeing Vampire Academy books EVERYWHERE lately, I suppose I should start reading them! I know I have two of those books somewhere. I love your stash of books. I think the spine of Graveminder is super pretty. :)

  8. I love your mailbox! I got some Richelle Mead books this week too!

  9. Well, Clarissa Clare's latest books are definitely a must have and I've heard Vampire Academy is as well, so those Christmas money was very well spent!

  10. Oh dear!! amazing IMM!! VA! The Mortal Instruments! holy cow!! Im glad you have them now! they are MUSTS!

    about legend, Dear! read it read it read it!! is SOOOO GOOD!!!! I wasn't going to read it either, but then I saw so many great reviews and the book was optioned for a movie and stuff, so I wanted to know if it was that good and... YES! It is my dear! From the beginning you are stuck to the pages!! I hope you read it soon! muah!!! ^-^ take care my sweet! muah!

  11. Wow! looks like you got yourself a good load this week! Lot's of Cassandra Clare and Richelle Mead two awesome authors! Check out my IMM!!

  12. WOOT WOOT! I'm so excited you got the VA books!! YES! VA is probably one of my fav series ever :D I need to read Cassandra Clare's books myself, I do have The Mortal Instruments trilogy to read, I'll probably read that soon - heard such amazing things about her! Graveminder has been on my wish list for awhile too, it looks awesome!

    I hope you love all your books! :D

    April @ My Shelf Confessions

  13. Oh, I loved the Vampire Academy books! Hope you enjoy them too :)

    And I've only read the first two books of the Mortal Instruments series but I loved them and hope to carry on with them soon!

  14. @Lan: I KNNOOOOOW! I feel awful about it... I'm all for supporting real bookstores, but when you buy as many books as we all do, it makes it prohibitively expensive :(

    @Molly: Hehe! I know, I spent A LOT. But I *did* get given money for books, so I was really only obliging, right? :D SOOOOO excited for the 'new' Cassie Clare books!

    @Mimi: SOOOOO excited to read these! I've still only read VA!

    @Elena: Yeah, I've STILL only read VA, so I was thinking what you are. I'm planning on reading them over Christmas :)
    And YES! GRaveminder=SO pretty. The cover is LOVELY.

    @DeniseF: YAY! Spreadin' The Richelle Mead love around!

    @Rebecca: Mwaha! Thank you :D I felt it was necessary to complete my Cassie Clare collection XD

    @Natalia: Ugh, you've convinced me. On it goes to TBR XD

    @Fireflywishes: Mortal Instruments are SOOOOO good. You won't regret it :D

    @Chrissie: I think that none of you will ever talk to me again if I *don't* like them, so I have every intention of loving them :D Oh, the third Mortal Instruments is GOOOOOOD! Can't wait for your review :D

  15. VA = Best YA series ever. I hope you enjoy them. Nice IMM.


  16. *covers ears and screams* NEVER say those sinful words EVER again!!! BOOK-BURNING!!! :O

    But oh, you have excellent taste when buying books :D YAY for the rest of VA! AND Bloodlines!! (Adrian grows 123454657x more awesome in that. Sigh. I love my funny, charming, broken, messed up boy <3). I am so excited for you to continue those books!

  17. Wow amazing books this week! Enjoy them all :)

  18. @Kim: I'm so excited for them! I've only read VA so far and BRODIE and Kristin from Growing up YA kind of convinced me I needed to fix it XD

    @Brodie: I'm so excited for Bloodlines! I love the idea that the stilted love interest gets a happy :D

    @Sarah: I know! It was a GREAT weekend XD

  19. Did I just sequel?!!Yes, yes I did!! I LOOOOOVE Vampire Academy<3 and you got Bloodlines too!! This is one awesome IMM because I spy Cassandra Clare's books too;D
