In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.  The idea behind IMM is not only to put new books on our radars but also to encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of our mailboxes: books bought, received, won, and borrowed, along with other goodies and swag. 

I got quite a few books these past two weeks, from many different sources and ranging across many different genres, from epic historical fiction to manga to paranormal romance and swag.  It's possibly my most random mailbox ever, and I'm so happy to finally own the complete Hunger Games trilogy!!

Aw Kat, thanks for the comments on my blog and noticing I'm back blogging! Hopefully I'll stay that way. :)

Jenny said...

Yay, I adore the Hunger Games trilogy! Definitely one of my all time favorites, can't wait to see what you think of those two Kat!

Kat said...

@Jenny-- The Hunger Games trilogy are actually some of my all-time favorites, too! I've already read the series, but I finally own them all-- so I get to read them again! :D

@Alison-- I was very interested in Relic Master, too, seeing as I love Catherine Fisher-- of Incarceron fame--'s books. It's so far so great-- I'm about halfway through!

@Sally+Nic-- I can tell you guys already that the Iron Thorn is pretty brilliant! I'm only a hundred pages in, but it's that fantastic. The writing is beautiful; I can't wait to review it.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my mailbox, everyone! :)
