In My Mailbox (9)


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 so pleased with my Mailbox this week! I was SO excited to win The Goddess Test from HarlequinTEEN Australia in conjunction with a young Aussie filmmaker  (we had to vote on a fabulous video, so it wasn't hard :D). In any case, I LOVE myth-based stories, so I'm really excited to get to this one. PLUS, I REALLY love this cover. SO pretty. AND the spine. Actually, I just have a crush on HarlequinTEEN's covers. Full stop. Period. That little dot at the end of a sentence. '.'. Yep, that one.

I've heard so many amazing things about Hunting Lila, I want to drop everything I'm doing to read it NOW. I loved Sarah Alderson's Fated, so I know this one's going to be good.

And Tempest? Well, uh, TIME TRAVEL, FOLKS. Seriously. I read 'Time Travel'? I'm there. 'Nuff said ;)

From top to bottom:

  1. The Goddess Test, Aimee Carter (won)
  2. Hunting Lila, Sarah Alderson
  3. Tempest, Julie Cross

So you guys, what'd you bag this week? Share!

  2. I'm curious to see if you'll like Hunting Lila too because you were such a big fan of Fated. Hopefully it won't disappoint! I want to read Tempest too, I love time travel.

  3. HUNTING LILA <333333 AMAZING! EVEN BETTER THAN FATED (I think anyway...) My copy of The Goddess Test came as well! ( I actually received 2 copies...I have no idea why...) I've read mixed reviews about Tempest, but since I LOVE time travel, im definitely giving it a go!
    ENJOY <3

  4. YAY!!!! You finally got Tempest, Sarah!!! So excited for you to read it!! I loved The Goddess Test. It was AWESOME! And the australian cover of TGT is actually the same with The Vespertine and Dark Angel I think. I noticed it when looking around in Big W, LOL. I can't wait to read Hunting Lila! Must read it first before Fated!!! Happy reading! :)

  12. Lila! Lila! Lila! <3 Let me know when you start reading that so I can stalk your progress. And naturally so I can shut down any attempts you have of stealing the sexy boys.

    Sooo want to read Tempest! I have seen mixed reviews, but dude. TIME TRAVEL! YES. Clearly psychotically genius minds think alike. Anything with time travel and I'm instantly squealing like a moron. I really loved TGT, it has had mixed reviews, but I so enjoyed it! Cannot wait to see what you think of all these. GO READ THEM ALL AT ONCE.

    And random fact: Did you know Aimee Carter is a huge HP fan? As in, she was totally in the HP fan fic community way back when <33333

    1. No. EFFING. Way.
      Harry Potter fan you say? Hell yes! I think I love this book already.
      Seriously, say time travel, and I'm sold. It's my Doctor Who fangirl showing. Embarrassing but true confession: I am wearing a Doctor Who t-shirt right at this moment. I mean, only because I know there's nonchance of me leaving the house, and I'm about to go to bed, but it's true. But yes! I've heard mixed things and I'm trying to ignore them because I love the cover and concept so badly!

      Oh goodness, don't tempt me. Lila arrived and I wanted to drop everything, pause life and read it right then. If I wasn't reading Everneath ATM (which is AMAZING) I think I would. For reals.

    2. DOCTOR WHO!!! Sorry. Just had to get that in there. :) Can't wait to see what you think of Tempest! I also just got Everneath in the mail a couple of days ago, so I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it.

  14. You got three great books this week Sarah! I can't wait to get my hands on Tempest and Hunting Lila! Not heard of the Goddess Test before but now I will await your thoughts patiently (somewhat) to see if it's one I should be gushing over! :D

    Happy reading this week!

    P.s. My film post is up, it's underneath My Mailbox! (see what I did there? :P)
