In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that gives bloggers a chance to share what books they've received in the last week. It's hosted by The Story Siren and you can find out more info about it here.

I got a few things in my “mailbox” this week. I’ve been holding back on buying books (successfully, actually which is good, I guess) so I don’t have much this week. I know I won’t get anything next week, so don’t expect an IMM post. BUT the week after that, I’ll have LOTS! I know I will because my birthday will have passed and I’m expecting books, plus I’m going to buy myself at least one (wish me luck with that!). I’ll probably get more than that… Anyway, here’s what I got this week:

Bought from The Book Depository
Delirium by Lauren Oliver {Goodreads}

From Reading for the Love of it Conference
Thunder Bay by William Kent Krueger {Goodreads}
Smiley bookmark

For Review (from Galley Grab)
Possession by Elana Johnson {Goodreads}

I’m so happy I got my copy of DELIRIUM this week! It came last Monday. It is so SHINY. If you haven’t seen this book up close and personal yet, go to the bookstore and just look at its SHINY-NESS. Then buy it because it’s an awesome book. Let me convince you of that here. THUNDER BAY is the seventh book in an adult suspense novel series. My housemates were at a conference in Toronto and picked it up for me at the Simon & Schuster table. I’m not sure if it’s my kind of book, so I might pass it along to my mom, since I think she’d like it. They also got me that cute smiley bookmark :). POSSESSION looks like a great upcoming dystopian novel from a debut author. I'm really getting into dystopian novels. They are so different from our world, yet still relatable. It's weird. And there's a LOT of good ones coming up this year, so keep your eyes peeled. I'm excited!
