In My Mailbox (6)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.

I ordered these books online from a couple of different sites last week. Two arrived together, but I didn't want to post them until I had the whole set. The third arrived this week, so without further ado, my IMM for this week:

Purchased

Goodreads Summary Pages:
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Rebel Angels by Libba Bray
The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray

I also have 1 more thing to share with you this week. I visited Warner Bros. Movie World, a theme park in Queensland, Australia. When the movie for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (aka Sorcerer's Stone) was first released, they had a replica of the Hogwarts Express. Every movie since then, they have had a release party, and so it was only fitting they open a Harry Potter themed shop. I went there looking for clothing/accessories to wear to the Deathly Hallows midnight showing, but was very disappointed. All of the t-shirts were for children, and the only had Gryffindor & some Slytherin merchandise (I'm a proud Hufflepuff, lol). I did still purchase a plush Hedwig, and she now sites on my bedside table:



What did you get in your mailbox this week?


(p.s. I got a new camera, yay for IMM with photos!)

  3. Chanel- A real Hedwig would be wonderful. Although, I think I'd prefer a Pigwidgeon ;).

    Steph- I hadn't been in about 10yrs, so I was super excited! Hedwig is a great character!

  5. That's a great mailbox! I SO loved Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle Trilogy! And these covers look totally different from mine :) Is that the Australian edition?
    Besides, Spellbound was really great, go for it!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  6. Huh. I've never seen those covers for the Rebel Angels books. I hope you enjoy the trilogy. If you like Bray's stuff I hope you'll try (or have already tried) Going Bovine. I thought it was pretty awesome. If bizarre.

  10. Your blog's adorable - and so is Hedwig! I'm jealous that you have a HP themed shop. I'd spend all of my time there.
