In My Mailbox (9)

In my mailbox is a weekly even hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.com. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and share what books you've received in the past week, whether they be from your mailbox, a library, a friend, or a bookstore. This week I got two books:


1. The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
I got this one from my school's library. I've been waiting for this one for a long time now, and so I was really excited to see that my library finally had a copy! I didn't love the first one, but the second one was really good so I'm excited to see how this one turns out.

2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I got this one at the used bookstore downtown, The Book Barn. I've read so many good reviews about this book, especially from another blogger and friend of mine, Lulu the Bookworm! I can't wait to read it!


That's what was in my mailbox this week! What about yours? Leave links to your posts in the comments, and I'll check them out!

Thanks for reading!

  5. I have had Divergent on my stack since last summer. I still haven't found a way to fit it into my reading schedule - though I did look at it again today. I hope you enjoy both your finds. Happy reading and thanks for visiting my IMM.

  6. Divergent is REALLY good, but part of me wants to tell you to wait to read it until the end of next month, when Insurgent comes out. Why? Because when I was done with Divergent I was DYING to read the next book right away! The wait has been killer :-)
