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. 


Bought:


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. 

Won:


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.
