In My Mailbox #24


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives bloggers the chance to appreciate the books they got last week and to meet new people.






The book I bought this week:


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin


The books I got for review this week:


Destined* by Jessie Harrell
Carrier of the Mark** by Leigh Fallon

* from Jessie Harrell, thank you!
** from HarperCollins UK, thank you!






Oh, I love the books I got this week. At the moment I'm reading The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I really like it so far. Seems like everyone's right about this book - it's amazing. And I'm incredibly excited for Destined; my review will be part of the Destined blog tour. And of course, I can't wait to start Carrier of the Mark since I've heard really good things about this one as well! :)

What did you get in your mailbox this week?
