In My Mailbox [13] – Christmas Special!

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.

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I haven’t done an IMM post in nearly a month because I was on a book-buying ban. I did receive a couple of review copies but I thought I’d just put them in one belated Christmas IMM.

  1. I really need to read Looking For Alaska…or any John Green books for that matter… 😛 Happy reading!

  2. I love that cover for Looking for Alaska! I don’t really like the UK cover with the heart as much.
    Great books! I also got Harry Potter: Page to Screen but I haven’t properly gone through it. So pretty though.

  3. Oh my god, that edition of Looking for Alaska is so lovely! I’m jealous. =.= :))

  4. Oh I love the look of the HP book! ❤

  5. Is the Harry Potter: Page to Screen similar to Harry Potter Film Wizardry? (Even if it is, I’ll probably purchase it any way!) I hope you enjoy The Mysterious Benedict Society series. I read them to my cousin and we both LOVED them!
    Agreeing with the comments above, that edition of Looking for Alaska is the best one yet. I’m so glad it’s the one I own!

    Merry (late) Christmas! 🙂

    • I don’t have Film Wizardry (although it’s on my wishlist) but from what I can tell from the previews, Page to Screen is a LOT more detailed. It’s a MASSIVE book, 500+ pages, and very heavy (7.4 pounds according to Amazon). Although it still has lots of photos, it’s less of a scrapbook.

  6. Shipbreaker is a great book, I hope you enjoy it. Your photographs and blog are pretty, new follower here!
