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!

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
