Mailbox Monday (1)

This is my first Mailbox Monday post.

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at Mailbox Monday blog.

Mailbox? This is not a word I use in my vocabulary. I'm English don't you know! So Post Box would be more appropriate. However I don't have a Post Box! All my post comes through my letter box. So Letter Box Monday it shall be although it doesn't have the same ring to it as Mailbox Monday. Hey ho!

Each week I will post what books have made it through my letter box, come home in my shopping bag with me, or downloaded on to my kindle. I do occasionally still buy paperbacks, especially from the local charity shops, but more often than not, I will buy ebooks for my kindle.

Here is what made it in to my house for future reading:

Personal Kindle Purchases:

Night Watch: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads
Ancillary Justice: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads

Both books are the first books in series. Over the last three months, I have been making a concerted effort to finish off series that I'm currently invested in. It has felt really good to complete these as I now feel able to start some new ones. And there are so many fantasy series out there now.

Books for Review on NetGalley:

Paradigm: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads
The Monster's Wife: View on Amazon

Books from local library ebook/audio resource:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads

In addition to my book acquisitions, I also bought a Kindle Fire HDX and a case.

  1. Hi Sarah! I'm glad you decided to join me, Serena and Leslie for Mailbox Monday! We took over MM back in January and are always excited when someone new joins us!

    It looks like you got quite a few good books! I'm a cover snob and think The Monster's Wife has an awesome cover!!

    I hope you decide to join us every Monday for Mailbox Monday, and please check out Books That Caught Our Eye on Wednesday's where the three of us will share the books from MM that caught our eyes. Feel free to comment on any books you found through the MM linky that grabbed your attention.

  2. Hi Vicki, I love the idea of the Books That Caught Our Eye! I will keep an eye out for it. I definitely intend to carry on with Mailbox Monday - its good to share what reading delights I have picked up during the week. Yes the Monster's Wife cover is great - let's hope the book is too!
