In my mailbox (#3) X-Mas Edition


So I've decided to upload my "In My Mailbox" today instead of tomorrow. I figure, from now on I will post these memes every Sunday; show you what I've gotten throughout the week. Ah, and before I forget, "In my Mailbox" is a meme hosted by The Story Siren so be sure to check her blog out.

Like I warned you, I have A LOT of books to show you. Please keep in mind all these weren't given to me TODAY.. My mom bought the lot at the same time, gave me half for my Birthday and the other half for Christmas. I decided to wait and just show you the entire lot now instead of before. Enjoy!

This first picture is of the books my secrete Santa bought me. My family (cousins) every year hold an annual Secrete Santa. This year my cousin Angelo (ahaha, with an 'o' instead of an 'a' like my name) bought me the three books on my wish list:







Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray

Thank you Angelo! <3





Next is a picture of the books I opened this morning from my mom. Keep in mind these were bought at the same time as the ones my mom purchased for my birthday. Thank you mommy! <3

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendra Blake
Saving June by Hannah Harrington
Summer in the City by Elizabeth Chandler
Banana Splitsville by Catherine Clark
The Best Girl by Emma Harrison
Touch by Jus Accardo
Glimmerglass by Jenna Black



This next batch was the books I got for my Birthday. My mom got all these (plus the ones up top) from The Book Depository. It's a great site to buy books cheaper. (From left to right)


The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Elemental Reality by Cesya MaRae Cuono
Faking Faith by Josie Bloss
Destined by Jessie Harrell
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins



These last two books were just purchased at random, if you will. Actually, Cleanse Fire was mailed to me by the author. So thank you. Another Pan was bought because I love Peter Pan and just had to get this. Must. Compare. Pan. Stories.


Another Pan by Daniel Nayeri, Dina Nayeri
Cleanse Fire by Anastasia V. Pergakis


Well, that's all from me folkes. How was your Christmas? Was Santa good to you? Let me know what you got (books or non-book related things). I'd love to know!


Books, Christmas, LOTS,

    I got a few great ones too but The Daughter of Smoke and Bone is still calling my name from the bookstore. Maybe one last little treat before the new year?

    I will definitely be checking back to see your reviews =)!

    Also, thanks for friending me on Razorbill =).
