In My Mailbox #21

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi @ The Story Siren. All links go to the Book Depository UK.

So...what do I do when I'm overloaded with books and feel like I'll never read them all? Why, get even more books, of course! Ugh, I have a disease and I need help.


Delirium by Lauren Oliver 
I mentioned once that I feel like everyone has read Lauren Oliver but me. I hope to rectify that shortly.

Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
I've been wanting to read this since the beginning of the year and it's being sold very cheaply at the moment. I couldn't resist.

The Poison Diaries: Nightshade by Maryrose Wood
I read the first book more than a year ago and I made this sequel the subject of a Waiting on Wednesday post. However, I confess to remembering very little about what was good about the first book or why I liked it, so I decided it was time to jog my memory.

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
I'm a big Lois Lowry fan (although in my day, it was the Anastasia books I loved, not The Giver, which everybody else seems to rave about but I never read) and this is one of her books I haven't come across before. And it's so small, it's not going to add much weight to my TBR pile.

From NetGalley:

Yay, I got approved! I've been dying to read this and I'm starting it next, no question about it. 

It's the subtitle "A Novel of Magic Most Foul" that made me want to read this book. Magic Most Foul? Ooh, I'm in.

I've been seeing reviews for this for a long time, so I didn't realise that it was still a long way away from being officially published. A book about a teenage traveller absolutely appeals to me and all the advanced buzz makes me optimistic that this will be a great read.

This is a middle-grade/children's novel, which I don't normally read, but this just looked so darn cute.

This is the second book in the Lacey Chronicles, which means I really have to get a move on and read the first one.

So quite a big load this week for me! What did you get?


  1. Great books! Love Delirium :) I've been meaning to read Rosebush for ages now too! Hope you enjoy. Hoping to get my hands on a review copy of Dearly Departed when it's released here! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Wonderful haul! I really enjoyed Dearly, Departed. I also have yet to read Delirium I've heard mixed reviews on it I'm a bit wary of it.

  3. Delirium and Rosebush were AWESOME. Number The Stars was one of my favorite childhood books. I still need to read The Giver. I can't wait to see what you think of Wanderlove. And I don't blame you on the Olivia Bean Trivia Queen. :P Great books! (By the way, I keep telling myself I have too many books yet keep buying them too)

  4. Delirium was SO SO good. I really hope that you enjoy it. :)

    I am really anticipating Darker Still!

  5. Wow you got a lot of great books this week! I am about to read Dearly, Departed and I am so excited about it! I hope you enjoy all your books:)

  6. I absolutely love Number the Stars! One of my favorites of all time! Hope you enjoy all of these!

  7. YAY you got Dearly, Departed! That's awesometastic! And Number the Stars was seriously my favourite book in fourth grade. It's poignant and hopeful and so sad all at once.

    And book collecting isn't a sickness! It's not like they'll go bad if we don't read them right away. ;)

  8. Fantastic books this week! I can't wait to hear how Darker Still is---I'm very curious about that one!
