In My Mailbox (8)


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 don't know about you, but books arriving in the mail is one of the single most exciting things to happen to me any given week. Bad day? Well, if there's a book in the mail, it's forgotten. Maybe that's sad, but it's true. I don't think you can get much better that Divergent and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight arriving in one week, and then it was topped off with Hallowed! That noise you hear? Oh yeah, that's just me squeeing and doing the happy dance. Please ignore ;)

From top to bottom:

  1. Hallowed, Cynthia Hand (won) *
  2. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Jennifer E. Smith
  3. Divergent, Veronica Roth
A huge THANK YOU Erin at Tales of the Inner Book Fanatic and HarperCollins Australia for the copy of Hallowed! SO excited to read this. If for some reason you don't know Erin, go check out her blog. She writes some of my FAVOURITE reviews.

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

  10. I usually hear the mailman walking down my hallway, so I'm at the door waiting for him. He's started joking about installing some type of elevator to bring my books up, as I order so many...it can definitely turn any day into a great day!

    Love your copy of Hallowed - I've got the UK version of Unearthly, so I'm really hoping to find it's matching set!

    1. Hehe! I liste for his motocycle coming down my street and peek out the blinds, ninja style. I'm kind of embarrassed he'll see me jumping up and down in excitement, or that I'll have an irrepressible urge to huge him :P

  14. Woooo! The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! I need to read it! I hope you enjoy, lady! :D

  15. THAT IS ONE SMOKING HOT MAILBOX. Seriously. I see the fire starting in the bottom right corner due to such explosive materials. Better do something about that.

    AU cover of Hallowed is soooo pretty! I need to get my hands on that asap! AND AHHHHH. Statistical Love! AND DIVERGENT KLASJHFSJSDNJLFJBKHSNJCXKLJLVMXC. I really, really, really, reallly want to reread that right now. Well, I'd preferably like to be reading Insurgent, but for some reason the publishers like release dates and having time to print copies and planning promotion. What. Ever.

    1. I know, right? It's inconsiderate. I'd take just an unbound pile of A4 paper. NEED INSURGENT NOWNOWNOWNOWNOWNWONWONOWNOWNOW *CRIES*

      *cough* I actually did just check the bottom right hand corner of the photo to see if there was anything there :P

  16. Nice haul, Sarah! I have Divergent, I've been putting it aside for a while now but I will be picking it up before Insurgent comes out. Happy reading!

    1. Aaah! Mesa! It's SO. GOOD. I can't even tell you! You'll love it, and it has a satisfying enough ending that you'll be fine between it and Insurgent... I want more, but it's because I love it so damn much :D

  17. Great set! I hope to get Statistical Prob soon. It sounds fabulous.
