In My Mailbox (#31)

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

So...yes. I realise I am not posting reviews as often. I am trying, I really am, but October is just a crappy month for me. Huge essay due for the day before a mega-important exam, and generally just lots of work that's keeping me busy at the moment. Also gotta send off my UCAS form (university application for non-UKers) before the end of next week, so there's a lot going on. I've been trying to read at weekends, so I do have a few reviews to post, and some to write up which should keep me going for a while. If you decide to stick with me, thank you! :). And though I am a bit absent, I promise to try and return any comments! And now here's what I got in the post this week:

For Giveaway:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (if you want to enter this giveaway, go here! UK only, I'm afraid, but I will be having more international giveaways soon :])

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (the amazing Cait @ The Cait Files had an extra copy which she sent me this week - it's so pretty! The pages are black and there's this lovely red ribbon bookmark...thank you, Cait! :D)
Othello by William Shakespeare (the lovely Jade @ Ink Scratchers sent me this to help me out with my English coursework this year - we're studying Othello and The Taming of the Shrew, but my teachers are so useless they haven't even issued us the texts yet. Thanks Jade! :])

Fateful by Claudia Gray (from the awesome Erin @ Tales of the Inner Book Fanatic - don't you just love the Australian cover? It's so shiny... thanks Erin!)
Pride & Premiership by Michelle Gayle (one of the books I won from the wonderful Mia @ Gripped into Books - thanks Mia!)

And that's it for me! What did you get in your mailbox this week?

Many thanks to Erin, Mia, Cait, Jade and Hodder.

  2. I got a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone for myself this week, because I desperately needed a finished UK version - it's sooo pretty. :D And I got the hardback version of Fateful which is very shiny, too. :) Love that!
