In My Mailbox #45

Hey everyone, welcome to another In My Mailbox, hosted by The Story Siren! :) I've decided I can't be bothered to only do it every month - so now it's spontaneous! Whenever I feel I have enough books to show you, you'll see them :D This week I have lots - I bought rather a lot, so I need to go on book buying ban immediately, I think ;P

For Review:

Fury by Elizabeth Miles 
Unrest by Michelle Harrison
Torn by Amanda Hocking
When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
Fever by Lauren Destefano x2


Slide by Jill Hathaway
Department 19 by Will Hill x2
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson x2


The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - So I read the UK paperbacks when they all first came out, and the books are AMAZING. Seriously, if you haven't read them, what are you waiting for?! But the UK PBs aren't that nice, and the US hardcovers are gorgeous, and I need to reread the first one before the movie comes out so I used it as an excuse to buy these beautiful books xD They are definitely among the most gorgeous things I own! :D

So what did you get in your mailboxes this week? I'm especially excited to read Slide, Fever and Unrest, and all books that I have duplicates of (Dept 19, The Name of the Star, and Fever) have gone into my giveaway pile as prizes! I now have six books in this pile, so look out for a giveaway or two soon! :D 

Also, The Name of the Star and Department 19 are both ONE POUND (£1) in Waterstones, to celebrate World Book Day! If you're in the UK, head over to your nearest Waterstones to buy them, because they are awesome books and an absolute bargain! :D 

Leave me a comment and link, and I'll come check out what you got in your mailbox this week! Happy reading everyone!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
