In My Mailbox (16)


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 had a FANTASTIC week. An enormous thanks to Harper Collins Australia, Allen & Unwin, and Harlequin TEEN Australia. I haven't had a mailbox (even last week's terrifyingly enormous one) I've been this excited about in a while... it goes to say it's quality, not quantity, right? Then again... it's not like this is low on quantity.

Given they're all kind of thick books this week, I'm not quite sure you can see it, but The Immortal Rules is THICK. 451 pages. I am SO excited to read it. And Storm! Oh my goodness, Storm. I've been hanging out to read Storm since reading Brodie's review a couple of months ago. Brodie has a knack for writing reviews that get me ridiculously excited for books, and she was on the money once again. Storm was AMAZING. Next up, Insurgent! Oh my goodness, you guys. I am so excited for this one. You? Yes?

From top to bottom:

  1. Insurgent, Veronica Roth *
  2. Storm, Brigid Kemmerer **
  3. Glow, Amy Kathleen Ryan
  4. Temptation, Karen Ann Hopkins ***
  5. Allegiance, Cayla Kluver ***
  6. The Immortal Rules, Julie Kagawa ***
  7. Storm, Brigid Kemmerer
  8. Unravelling, Elizabeth Norris *
* Thank you, thank you, thank you Harper Collins Australia!
** Thank you Allen & Unwin, and Lisa from Badass Bookie and Braiden from Book Probe Reviews!
*** Thanks to the perennially amazing Harlequin TEEN Australia!

  6. Wow, so many amazing books!

    I still haven't read Divergent so I can't say much about Insurgent, but I'm seeing everyone excited about this one lately. I read Allegiance's first part, Legacy, but it wasn't for me so I don't think I'll be reading the second :(

    The Immortal Rules! I've already read it, but... the physical copy looks so stunningly pretty I can't wait for it to come out. And then, Unraveling! I've heard many great things about this book. I'm really excited to read it.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

But remember, the twins are mine….. TIR looks scary. I'm sure I own a few thick books like that but eeeek! Hopefully it's yummy and we can just fly through it ;) Awesome mailbox!!

  11. Awwwww! *glomps you* My review honestly doesn't do the book justice, I was too ADHSFLDIJFDJKX with excitement to write it properly. But OMG I am so excited for yours! Your reviews are always so effing amazing and I KNOW you will give it the praise it so deserves.

    Actually, Insurgent is thicker than The Immortal Rules. 525 pages, I think? 525 GODDAMN BRILLIANT PAGES. I so hope you enjoy it *bites nails* And eeeeeeeeee! Can't wait for my copy of Immortal Rules to arrive! AND AND AND YOU GOT UNRAVELLING *SQUEE* Everyone has been saying how AMAZING that book is and it LOOKS amazing and SOUNDS amazing and is it May yet???

    Also, what Alice said. I LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS <3

  18. This is Insurgent there.

    "Why are you looking like this?" they asked.

    "Why are your hands trembling like this?" they asked.

    "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THIS KNIFE?" they asked.

  26. ASDF;JKASKDLFJIO7UZOMG. NO. EFFING. WAY. You already have INSURGENT?!?!? You and Brodie are KILLING ME. Seriously, stabbing me to death with anticipation because you guys both have these books.

    Storm and Temptation are BIGGIES for me. I want to read them both at some point, as well as Glow.

    Oh, man, SARAH, enjoy your books, yo!

    1. *CACKLES* YESSSS! AND IT WAS SO GOOD.

      Oh, Brodie and I won't stab you to death only with anticipation... but, I don't know about Brodie, but I'll only stab you if you try to run away. *clutches* *hugs*

  27. SARAHHHH Looks like we got the EXACT same books the week...except for Glow and Insurgent :( (WHERE THE HELL IS MY COPY!?!? I bet the postie stole it! GRRRRRRRR) I really hope you enjoy Glow! It was one of those "average" reads for me ( too many physics terms-totally did my head in!)
    ENJOYYYY <3333

  28. OMG! You got the same books, but I don't have INSURGENT and UNRAVELING. I'm super envious right now! I feel so left out. :( All of you guys got Insurgent, while I have to wait for my fricken pre-order. I'm sure I've gone over this like 5+ times in the last couple of days, whether it be on Goodreads, Twitter or just IMM posts like yours. GAH!
