In My Mailbox (33) - Christmas 2011 Edition

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 haven't had the chance to do an IMM in such a long time! Mostly because I've been good about not buying any books, or receiving them. But of course, it's the holiday season and gifts are passed around, and so I got a few. Well, I got one, but I bought the others with the gift cards I got :). Here's what I received this week:

Gifted for Christmas
Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles #3) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
{Goodreads | Book Depository}

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab {Goodreads | Book Depository}
Legend by Marie Lu {Goodreads | Book Depository}
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi {Goodreads | Book Depository}
Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely #3) by Melissa Marr {Goodreads | Book Depository

Bought for my Kobo
Hereafter by Tara Hudson {Goodreads | Book Depository}
Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly {Goodreads | Book Depository}

I definitely didn't mean to buy 4 books at Chapters. Really. I meant to buy 1. But that's what happens I suppose. And like I said, I haven't bought many books recently, so it felt really nice to leave the bookstore with so many new books tucked in my arms! And then I came home and was looking at ebooks on and bought two more! But they were crazy on sale (Hereafter: $0.99CAD; Angel Burn: $3.39CAD), and I'm filling my Kobo with books because I have a long trip coming up!

I can't wait to read any of these. They all looks amazing and I'm so excited to jump into them.
