In My Mailbox #5

I am so so happy with what I've bought this week and even more excited to share them all with you! I shouldn't really be buying books but I just couldn't help it; I have a serious book addiction! Anyway, I always look forward to doing this meme, hosted by The Story Siren and sharing everything with you all :) Please let me know, in the comments below, what you've bought, borrowed or received this week!

The Hunger Games Trilogy - Suzanne Collins
The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch (Goodreads)
Wrath of a Mad God - Raymond E. Feist (Goodreads)
Wither - Lauren DeStefano (Goodreads)
Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare (Goodreads)

I am so happy with these books! I just randomly popped into the The Works, a discount book store and I came out with this wonderful little bundle! I have wanted to read the Hunger Games trilogy for ages now but didn't really want to buy them all seperately because 1. I'd have them all to read, one after the other and 2. it's alot cheaper! When I saw the price on this boxset (£5.99!!!) I nearly fainted and knew no matter what I had to buy it! I would have prefered the other version of the books but these will do perfectly! So chuffed! The Lies of Locke Lamora was on sale in the 99p bargain section and its been mentioned on a few blogs so I thought I couldn't go wrong with the price! And I had the Raymond E. Feist book for free! At the back of the store they had returned items in perfect condition and amongst the pile was Wither and Clockwork Angel. I've heard so much about these books that I had to buy them just to see what all the fuss was about (and they were £2.99 each!). I am so happy and I cannot wait to tuck into these books!

Received for Review:
 Wothlondia Rising #1: Distant Familiarity - Gary F. Vanucci (Goodreads)
Wothlondia Rising #2: A Rose in Bloom - Gary F. Vanucci (Goodreads)

I'm really looking forward to reading these. I was advised by the author who so kindly sent me these to review, to read them before his fantasy book Covenant of the Faceless Knights, that was sent me last week. Sometimes I feel a little hesitant to read certain books for review maybe knowing they're not my type of thing, but I am certain that these books will be just what I enjoy and I can't wait to read the three in the next few weeks!

 The Last of the Mohicans - James Fenimore Cooper (Goodreads)
Child of the Mist (These Highland Hills #1) - Kathleen Morgan (Goodreads)
Entanglements - P. R. Mason (Goodreads)

I bought these for my kindle. I'm really interested in American history especially concerning the Indians so I'm looking forward to reading the classic, The Last of the Mohicans. The other two just sounded interesting so I'm sure I'll get round to them one day soon!

Scourge of the Betrayer - Jeff Salyards (Amazon)

Doesn't this look good? I'm looking forward to reading it. I love Netgalley but I have about five books on there so far approved and I haven't read one...I really need to get a move on!

So what's in your mailbox this week?

  4. The Hunger Games series is so good! Great price too!

    I liked Wither. It's a pretty different storyline. The cover is one of my faves!

    Great finds! I usually end up buying more books than I should too; especially when i find them used for a great price. :)

  5. OMG, so jealous. I want to read the Hunger Games so bad. You got a great haul this week. happy reading.

  6. Yes! I LOVE The Works!!! You don't know how many books I've bought from there recently.(one was Divergent by Veronica Roth, which I LOVED!!!!) I was so tempted when I saw Clockwork Angel for only £2.99 because it's an amazing book...but I resisted. I'm running out of space on my bookshelf :( and it's in my school library anyway.
    By the way I love your blog so I am now officially following you :)

  7. Holy moly! I wish there were so many bargain books to buy here!

    Hope you enjoy all of your books, you got a lot of good ones (:
