In My Mailbox [5]

In My Mailbox (IMM) is weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a chance for people to tell others about the books they received that week.

IMM5

Bought:
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
I was beginning to think my pre-order had gotten lost. I’m very excited to read this.

Gifted:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I absolutely love the UK version. It’s perfect! I attended the launch party on 3rd October and met Laini. She signed my book for me and said that she preferred the UK cover to the US cover. I’m thankful to the Hodder team for inviting me. I also had the chance to catch up with many lovely bloggers (Casey & Hayley, Sarah, Alice, and Vivienne) as well as meet new ones (Andrew, Bella, Leanne and more). It was held in a beautiful venue in East London and my favourite part of it was the smoky meringues – meringues with dry ice. Amazing!

The Bleeders by Michaela Haze
I met Michaela at the Daughter of Smoke and Bone event. She kindly gave me a copy of her début novel and signed it for me. The story begins in a mental institution… riveting!

IMM5 - Mary Hooper
Won:

Lots and lots of Mary Hooper
I won a giveaway hosted by Vicki at Heaven, Hell and Purgatory and the prize was Mary Hooper’s new book, Velvet, and most of her backlist:

At the Sign of the Sugared Plum
Petals in the Ashes
The Remarkable Life and Times of Eliza Rose
At the House of the Magician
By Royal Command
The Betrayal
Fallen Grace

And they’re all signed! The first one I’ll be reading is Fallen Grace as I’ve heard so much about it.

What did you guys receive this week? Feel free to provide a link to your IMM in the comments.
