In My Mailbox Birthday Special

In My Mailbox is a cool meme from The Story Siren.  Kristi isn't running IMM for the next couple of weeks, but I really wanted to do an IMM special today as it's my Birthday and I received lots of lovely, lovely books!  All links lead to Goodreads.


Hardback Edition

GRACELING by Kristin Cashore

Paperback Edition


Hardback Edition


Paperback Edition

Yes, I received two copies of this book from different family members.  This is such a strange coincidence as both people chose off my Goodreads wishlist which has 158 books listed!  Look out for a giveaway of one of these copies shortly after Christmas (the gifter has given permission for the giveaway of this book).

BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Paperback Edition

THE DARK DIVINE by Bree Despain

Paperback Edition

SOULLESS by Gail Carriger

Paperback Edition

CHANGELESS by Gail Carriger

Paperback Edition

BLAMELESS by Gail Carriger

Paperback Edition

What a great birthday it's been!  Oh, just before you go, don't forget to look at my last post and enter the Giveaway for Past Continuous!  It's only open until Wednesday so don't leave it too long.

Happy birthday!! You got some great books. Happy reading :)

What great birthday gifts you got in your mailbox! I LOVED Graceling and Soulless, those were actually on my list of my favorite reads this year. I haven't read Changeless or Blameless yet, but thats something I definitely need to do. I'm actually listening to the audio of Beautiful Darkness now.
Prophecy of the Sisters really looks like something I'd like to read myself, I don't think I've heard of that one until now.
I hope your birthday continues as wonderful as its started out! I can't wait to see what you think of these in the coming weeks/months!

You've got some great books there - I loved Graceling and Gail Carriger is now one of my favourite authors after I read all three books! Prophecy of the sisters sounds intriguing - can't wait to read your review of it! :)

Happy birthday! I hope you had a great day and have had a chance to read some of those awesome books. Graceling was really good! said...

Nice bunch there!

I've contmpleted the Gail Carriger books, cant wait to see what your thoughts are on them.

Graceling is good, but I much prefer Cashore's Fire.

T.B. said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoyed it!

I saw Graceling by Kristin Cashore in the bunch and I really enjoyed that one! Please let me know what you think of it, as I would love to hear your opinion on it. Have you read Fire, the companion novel to Graceling yet? I haven't but I hope to soon!
