In My Mailbox: Mid-March Edition

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme is about books that you received or bought during the week.

I was surprised when I already got the packages from my latest Book Depository purchase because it only took three weeks for them to arrive and they all got here at the same time.

Want to see what’s inside those packages? Here you go:

The Black Hawk by Joanna Bourne
Northlander by Meg Burden
The King Commands by Meg Burden
Postcards from Ladybird

You might be wondering what that manly chest is doing in my IMM post. I don’t usually read historical romances but I made an exception for Joanna Bourne’s novels when I saw a Sounisian recommend them. I enjoyed reading them, which is why I’m looking forward to her latest. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that Meg Burden’s novels came in trade paperback format instead of mass market. And yes, that’s another postcard set! I’m going to do a Postcard Love update once I’ve taken pictures of those Ladybird cards. Speaking of postcards, got this lovely Sarajevo one from Maja of The Nocturnal Library:

Thanks Maja! 🙂 I also met up with my college friends for a joint celebration (my birthday isn’t until the end of the month though) and these are the early birthday presents that I received:

Trese graphic novels by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo: Murder On Balete Drive, Unreported Murders, Mass Murders, Last Seen After Midnight
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Fully Booked gift cards
Muji notebook and colored pens

So I had a pretty great week in terms of books acquired. Can’t wait to read all of these. What about you, what books did you get in your mailbox? 😀

In My Mailbox: June 12

June 12 is Independence Day here in the Philippines and too bad it occurs on a Sunday this year so no holiday for us. Still, Happy Independence Day to all Filipinos out there. 😀 We’re not big on celebrating this day like the Americans are with fourth of July. I was so excited to see Book Depository packages waiting for me when I got home from work last Friday that I decided to make an IMM post this weekend.

I found it funny that except for Magic Slays, all of the covers of these books are white:

From Fully Booked:
Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews – read this on my Kindle as soon as it came out but wanted a paperback copy to complete my Kate Daniels set
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper

From the Book Depository (own order):
You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sarra Manning
Bachelor Boys by Kate Saunders

From the Book Depository (sent by Nomes of Inkcrush, I won her blogiversary contest):
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Seeing Me Naked by Liza Palmer

Nomes, thank you so much for the two books that you sent! As always, I’m excited to read all of these books. I’m kind of sad that the Book Depository doesn’t include free bookmarks in the packages anymore. I wanted to collect all of the designs that they had but I guess they ran out or something? What about the rest of you, what did you get in your mailbox recently?
