Peek into My Mailbox #1

I was unsure (and still am) about what I should do about the whole IMM situation, and have decided to just do my own thing showcasing the books I receive in the mail. So without further ado, here it is!

Inspired by The Story Siren's IMM, Peek into My Mailbox allows me to share all the marvellous, bookish goodies I receive in the mail!

Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder – Haven’t yet read anything by this author but my epic friend, Sarah RAVES about her.

When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle - For Review. This looks SO good but I’ve heard it’s heartbreaking, so I better prepare. Will be reading this soon!

Divergent by Veronica Roth – Won ARC. Will be reading Divergent very, very soon. Promise.

Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers – EEEE! I promised myself that if I saw any of the books from BooksI’m Wishing For: April Edition, featured in store I wouldn’t be leaving until I’d bought them. So I was completely surprised when I spotted Grave Mercy in Dymocks and of course I couldn’t go back on my word, could I now. HEHE

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles – I LOVE the Perfect Chemistry series so I’m real interested to see how I like this series.

Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta – I adore this book! Adore, adore, adore! I read this last year and finally took the plunge and bought my own copy! Yay.

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer  - Story: I was in Kmart looking at cards and then all of a sudden I looked up, turned my head and I was in book land! I immediately stopped what I was doing and went on a book browse and that’s when I saw Storm! I technically have a US edition already but I saw the Aussie edition in the shop and…well…one thing lead to another and I bought it.

A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink  - This book looks amazing and I’ve only heard fab things! Thanks Michelle for the beautiful, signed copy! I can’t wait to read it!

Sweet Evil Swag - Won

(A huge thanks to Simon and Schuster, HarperCollins Australia, The Tales Compendium, Cuddlebuggery, Michelle Zink and Wendy Higgins!!)

Phew! *swipes brow* Now that that’s over… What books invaded your mailbox this week? Any lovely surprises?


  1. When You Were Mine does look so good! But I'm afraid to read it because I've heard it's heartbreaking too! I hope you enjoy everything and here's my IMM + Weekly Wrap Up!

  2. Hey Rebecca! You got some great books this week, I hope you enjoy Night Beach and A Temptation of Angels, I liked them both!

  3. WOW! What a haul this week! :D Maria V. Snyder is AMAZING - I have read all her books and I love them all equally! I also agree about Melina Marchetta, love her too!

    Can't wait to read reviews for all your new reads <3

  4. Wonderful mail box! I've got Die For Me, Storm and Sweet Evil too! The swags are lovely.

    Happy reading Rebecca!

    Here's my book haul

  5. REBECCA! You have awesome books! JELLY! I've read the Glass series! It was good! If you haven't read the Study series, i suggest you read them before! You can read the Glass series as a standalone series but idk, up to you! i think it'll be good to read the Study series first!

  6. Damn, Becca. Your mailbox. IT'S EXPLODING WITH THE AWESOME. If any go missing, I will not be held liable for their disappearance :P

    YOU GOT DIVERGENT. YOU GOT DIVERGENT. YOU GOT DIVERGENT!!! TELL ME WHEN YOU READ IT. OMG. One of my favourite books ever. Ever. EVER, Becca! You hear? Er, no pressure for you to like it or anything :P

    Eee, Grace Mercy! Dying to read that. I didn't even realise it was out in Australia yet! Obsidian is SEXY. Can't wait to see what you think of that sexy jerk Daemon ;)

    I really, really need to read Maria's Poison Study and Glass series. I've read Touch of Power and the Insiders books and LOVED them.

    So many amazing books. Hope you enjoy them!! Book Heaven :D

  7. Hey Rebecca. I just HAVE to mention it. It's "bought" (to purchase), not "brought" (to bring).

    That aside, looks like you got heaps of good books this week! I really must get one of Kirsty's books, I keep hearing so many amazing things about it! I just LOVED Maria V. Snyder's Touch of Power, I've been itching to grab more of her work. Yay, read Divergent NOW! :P I pre-ordered the US PB of Grave Mercy, so excited to read that one.

    Durr still need to read Looking For Alibrandi. I've got On the Jellicoe Road on my June Reading Pile, so that's a start at least, right? Enjoy enjoy. :) Thanks for commenting on my book haul feature!

  8. Wow an awesome set of books this week Rebecca! I can't wait to read Night Beach, Storm, Sweet Evil and Grave Mercy! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them! Also Divergent is a fantastic book, I'm sure you will love Four just like everybody else did! Happy reading! :)

  9. Cool Books! I got Grave Mercy a few weeks ago but still haven't read it. And I want to read Obsidian :)

    Happy Reading!

  10. Yay! We both got Sweet Evil and Storm this week. I love the Aussie cover of Storm so much more than the US.

    I really enjoyed Die For Me!

    Looks like you got some amazing titles this week. Enjoy them all.

  11. rebecca!

    this is such an awesome stash. i am impressed :)

    i've heard some awesome things about Storm, so let me know if I would like it, okay? ;)

    also, i like what you are calling this feature. just do your own thing and don;t be too stressed about it !

  12. GAH I have been looking EVERYWHERE for Obsidian, but nowhere in my city seems to carry it! I don't usually order paperbacks online, but I'm dangerously close to breaking down and doing so for this because I keep hearing great things and need to read it NOW. And I've heard When You Were Mine is heartbreaking too - I'm excited to read it, but a bit nervous! Grave Mercy, Storm and Sweet Evil are also very high on my WANT list...gah can I just steal your entire mailbox for the week?! haha. Fantastic haul, and happy reading! :)

    DIVERGENT! DIE FOR ME! WHEN YOU WERE MINE! I SOOOO hope you like this one... I think you will? I *hope* you will?
    Also: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! STORM GLASS! DJKAFHLDJKAF! OBVIOUSLY you know how much I love Maria, so I'm SUPER excited for you to read! Oooh, but seriously, you should read the Study series first... the Glass books are a spin off... the same as how Bloodlines is a spin-off from Vampire Academy?


    Happy reading, m'dear! ♥

  14. Where do you get swag from??
