In My Mailbox (01)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren where bloggers showcase the books they received over the week.

I've been pretty busy this week, moving house and all, but I still got a few things in my mailbox. Since I'm still in the unpacking stage, and can't find anything, I can't use my camera, so you'll just have to make do with pictures that I find off the internet.


- The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

- Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

- Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

- Witch Song by Amber Argyle

- Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

My mailbox was very nice to me this week. All of these books, I've been lusting over. While I'm not too big a fan of Shiver / Linger, I bought the books because Maggie will be touring Australia in a couple of weeks, and that's a big deal. No one awesome ever goes to Australia.
With Miss Peregrine's, I'd been lusting over it for ages, since it's a creepy book (as proven by the ridiculously creepy pictures), and I LOVE weird and creepy things. 
And the other two books I had pre-ordered because, well, the covers looked pretty. Can you blame me? I'm pretty excited to read The Near Witch. I've tried to make room for it on my teetering to-read pile.

What did you all get in your mailboxes?


  1. That looks like a lot of reading fun coming up! I haven't read any of these books but most od them are on my TBR list.

    Please hop by and have a look at the book in my my IMM post

  2. Witch Song! And Miss Peregrine's too. I am so jealous. Have fun reading :)

    Here's my IMM this week:

  3. The Near Witch is one I also want to get! Then I too got Miss Peregrine this week. I can't wait to get to it, have heard a lot about it!

    My IMM can be found here!

  4. Enjoy The Near Witch ♥

    And I've been wanting to pick up Miss Peregrine's. It's been getting a ton of mixed reviews, though.

    My IMM

  5. I don't envy your house moving - I'm still recovering and unpacking from my move 2 weeks ago! I'm definitely going to get my hands on a copy of The Near Witch - so many bloggers raving about or excited about it.

    Happy Reading!
