In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a way to share the books I’ve gotten during the week and to receive comments from fellow readers…

Who knows, maybe one of my books will be your next read!
I’m always looking for more books, so please leave your IMM link in your comment!
 
Happy Reading! :)

Another slow week for book grabbing, but I'm really happy what I got!
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Goodness I love Strand Books! Spent a couple of hours browsing the shelves and trying extremely hard not to pick up every other book, but this was the only copy they had that was nicely tucked away and half off! Really excited about this book and I can't wait to spend the rest of the weekend reading it.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
 Yeah okay, I'm probably the only one that hasn't read this series yet. I've been holding back because when I first heard about this book, I thought, "wait, that's just like Battle Royale... but for teens." - one of my favorite books and movies. I can stubborn. But with practically everyone telling me I should read it, I'm biting bullet and finally going to start it!

I've heard other people compare it to Battle Royal, but it's really its own thing. You'll love it.

And you HAVE to read Rot & Ruin, Jenn! The covers look pretty scary, but I promise its not bad. :)

I keep seeing Smoke and Bone and now I really, really want to read it.

And the Hunger Games you will love. If I didn't have such a large TBR pile and college I would happily pick that book up again.

Happy Reading!

You're lucky that you have waited to get The Hunger Games until now because now the entire trilogy is out and you don't have to experience the torturous wait between the book release dates!

GASP... you haven't read The Hunger Games?! I'm so exciting for you... that's one of the books I wish I could unread just so I could read it again afresh.

DOSM is one of my favourite books I've read this year.
Hope you enjoy these :)

I'm so jealous that you have Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I'm waiting for my copy to arrive, but it's taking toooo long.

I really want to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone... it's had a lot of hype the past couple of weeks, I hope it's worth it!
I'm actually picking up The Hunger Games from the library this afternoon - I read the first couple of chapters a while ago at a friend's house, so I need to see what happens next! So you aren't the only one who still hasn't read it ;) I'll probably be reviewing it later this week.

I'm a new follower :)
