In My Mailbox #9

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @The Story SIren
Once again I got a bunch of books. Trayche,unfortunately didn't get anything. I'm sure he will have something to share with us next time. 


1. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
2. Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver
3. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly 
4. Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

I decided to buy these books because they were super cheap on Fishpond. I usually buy all my books on The Book Depository but after someone mentioned Fishpond also has free shipping I decided to check it out and I found a lot of books which were around $3. You do have to wait a couple of days more than on TBD but it was so worth it because this way I got to save cash. New releases are more expensive than the book from 2011. I read Wither in January and was surprised how much I liked it. As for the other 3 titles-a friend of mine recommended Shade and I bought Liesl & Po and Revolution because I have no doubt they will be great. 


1. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
2. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
3. Auracle by Gina Rosati
4. Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh 

I desperately wanted to read Seraphina,so when I won 2 copies(it was such a shock) I gave one to my friend and she bought me Enshadowed. A few days ago I read The Raven Boys and was disappointed because everyone on Goodreads has been raving how awesome this book was but it just wasn't for me. I liked The Wolves of Mercy Falls more. 

What did you get this week?

Ohh, you won a ton of books this week! And I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the Raven Boys that much... I have it, but I don't know when I'll be getting around to it.

Wither was awesome and unique. I have The Raven Boys and Auracle but haven't had a chance to read them. New follower.
