In My Mailbox #26

The idea of In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and is to bring books to the attention of our blog readers and to encourage interaction with other blogs.
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma  

Ordinary Beauty by Laura Wiess 

Possession by Elana Johnson 
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma 

The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder 
* Thanks to Petra @ Safari Poet for helping me out when I so desperately wanted to read the free download copy of 13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES, but couldn't download it (a major problem you see...).
* Thanks to netgalley, Penguin Young Readers Group and Harlequin  for allowing me access to IMAGINARY GIRLS and THE GIRL IN THE STEEL CORSET!
* Thanks to the S&S Galley Grab programme I got ORDINARY BEAUTY, POSSESSION, FORBIDDEN and THE DAY BEFORE! 



Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (German Hardcover edition; After four years of avoiding this novel, I finally decided to order and read it) 

For Review

Finding Sky by Joss Stirling 

Divergent by Veronica Roth

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain 
* Thanks to Oxford University Press for sending me a copy of FINDING SKY! 
* A huge thanks to (I guess) Harper Collins UK for sending me DIVERGENT. A few days ago this shiny and finished copy arrived and I was surprised because they had sent me two ARCs before (you can imagine I love them!). I already read DIVERGENT  (--> Review) and I loved it so much, that I'll definitely do a re-read!
* Thanks to Egmont UK for sending me THE LOST SAINT, second novel in THE DARK DIVINE series!

Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley 

* Loni @ A Casual Reader, I can't thank you enough for these wonderful books. I need to stop participating in your giveaways, can't win them all :D

  2. @ Aleetha Some people posted a movie trailer of the second part of the Harry Potter 7 movie and it looked like so much fun and action, that I decided to read it now (never felt like it before, but I do not know why...)
