In My Mailbox #11

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

This was another awesome week of book haul! Here is what I got this week:

For review:

[ARC] Tempest by Julie Cross (Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia!)

I've read an ARC of this book via NetGalley and really enjoyed it!

[ARC] Switched by Amanda Hocking (Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia!)

I'm currently reading this and I'm really enjoying it. But, while I got the UK covers of the series, I love the US covers more. They are so pretty!

Torn by Amanda Hocking (Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia!)
Second book in the Trylle trilogy! So excited to read this when I finished the first book!

Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate (Thank you Random House Australia!)
I love the Fallen series! I can't wait to read the short stories in Fallen in Love before Rapture comes out!

Love Shy by Lili Wilkinson  (Thank you Allen & Unwin!)

 This was a surprise too! (or I might have requested the book long ago but forgot about it.) Anyway, I love the sound of this book. This is an Aussie YA novel so I can't wait to read this!

Revived by Cat Patrick (Thank you Hardie Grant Egmont!)

I love Cat Patrick's first novel, Forgotten! I can't wait to read her second book. I love the AU cover more than the US one! It's so pretty. When you flip it around, you can see the girl laying on her back watching the sky! 

Choker by Elizabeth Woods (Thank you Simon & Schuster Australia!)

This is another surprise! The summary sounds quite interesting but I haven't heard of the book before. Can't wait to read it!

After reading so many amazing reviews on this book, I knew I had to read it! I am so happy that Penguin Australia is publishing this! Definitely can't wait to read it!


The FABULOUS, AMAZING, WONDERFUL, GORGEOUS Sarah @ saz101 gifted me the whole Study series! I actually received the last 2 books in the series (Magic Study & Fire Study) last week but I haven't got the first one so I postponed making an IMM post for it until this week when I finally got the whole series! The covers are the UK ones. I've never seen it before but I SURE CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS. I know Sarah loved it a lot + the awesome Valek so I'm positive I'm going to love this too! THANK YOU SO MUCH SARAH! You are SERIOUSLY AWESOME! Go follow her blog! She writes AMAZING reviews, her blog is fabulous and she is FABULOUS herself! ♥

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder

Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder


Touching the Surface swags by Kimberly Sabatini (Thank you so much Kimberly!)

Yay! I am so happy I won swags from Kimberly! I can't wait to read Touching the Surface and look at that cover! Isn't it GORGEOUS? I am definitely grabbing a copy of this book when it's out in October!

Okay, that's all I got this week! What did you guys get this week? Leave links to your IMM and I'll definitely stop by! :)

Have a wonderful weekend, you guys! ♥


  1. Eeeeee! I'm so excited you have them all, and they match and soon you're going to love them as much as meeeeeeeeee! Squee! *hugs*

    Celiiiiine! Amazing mailbox! Full of amazing things!

    And OMG! The AU cover of TEMPEST! So prettttty! Eeee! When are you going to read it? I have it waiting to read, too!

    1. *hugs* THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I've read Tempest via NetGalley so I don't know if I'm going to read it again!

      I hope you enjoy Tempest! It's a great read! ♥

    2. I'm excited to finally get to it! It will happen! I'm sure! EVENTUALLY!

      Oooh, Celine, you changed your comment system!

    3. Yes I changed it! At first, I didn't want to but when I log-in to DISQUS and found that so many comments are marked as spam and didn't appear in the blog, I was upset so I changed back to the normal one. I changed to DISQUS because I can reply to comments but now that blogger has threaded comments, I am changing it back to blogger's! Plus, I love the look of threaded comments in Blogger! ;)

    4. Yay! Eeee! I'm so glad it's working for you, and DISQS was always a bit of a pain on iPhone, so I'm double glad ;D

    5. Oh, Celine! Don't know if you knew, but you have Word Verification turned on for comments ;D

  2. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH AMAZING IMM. <3 <3 <3 I love those covers for The Study series. Unfortuantely I've got mismatching covers (the first two are the US covers I think and the last one is the UK cover like what you have).

    SO JEALOUS THOUGH. The Australian cover of The Tempest is GORGEOUS. I can't wait for you to read Fallen in Love. I'm moving it at the moment. :D And it's got a chapter of Rapture at the back!!

  3. Amazing IMM! And the Poison Study is fantastic! Valek...*swoon*. I hope you enjoy the series once you get around to em!

    All the best,
    Mackenzie @ Oh, For the Love of Books!

  4. Tempest looks amazing, enjoy! You have REVIVED!! *hyperventilates* How did you score that! I haven't read the Poison Study series either! I hope you enjoy them. Great IMM! :D

  11. Great books Celine! And awesome swag! :D So jealous! i am really looking forward to reading kimberly's book. I love the look of Choker - I have seen that book around a lot lately and it sounds like a good read! Can't wait to see what you think of it. Hope you're having an awesome weekend! :D

  12. Great IMM, Celine. Can't wait to see what you think of Tempest!

  13. !!!!!!!!! I want your mailbox this week! *faints*
    Tempest, Amanda Hocking's books, Revived, Choker, The Catastrophic History of You and Me... and Poison Study?! Such awesomeness. I want to read every single book! Can't wait to hear your thoughts of them all. :D

  14. FIRST OF ALL, VALEK is amazeballs. Seriously, one of my favorite fictional guys ever. I love the Poison Study series! I have to finish Fire Study, though.

    Remember how I said I liked Switched but I was hoping for better in Torn? Yeah, well, I just finished it, and Torn is sooo much better. Hope you enjoy it! And then of course there's Revived. I really can't wait to read that as well :)

    I really liked Tempest. The emotion is so acute and cutting, which is it's most memorable quality. It's funny that you mention Sarah (<33), because she's been pushing me to read Catastrophic History, and so I've resolved to read it this weekend.


  15. CELINE!! First and foremost, I agree that Sarah is epically awesome! Oh gosh, doesn't she just rock your socks off? Love that girl! <3

    And squee!! There are NO words to describe the awesomeness in your mailbox! I love the US covers for Switched and Torn too, but you have to admit that those UK covers are brilliantly beautiful too! Plus, you have Revived and The Catastrophic History of You and Me! :D I really hope you love them and I can't wait to read your reviews -- I just know they're going to be awesome!

    Amazing mailbox, Celine! :) <3

  16. What a delicious looking IMM. I have my fingers crossed Torn arrives, if not off to Big W:D Oh and your gifted Study series, wonderful!!! That was rather lovely and the swag you won, lucky you!!
