In My Mailbox (7)

This is a weekly meme where we talk about the books that arrived in our mailbox the past week, or books we borrowed at the library, bought etc. The meme is hosted by The Story Siren.

The past week I got some great books.

For review:
Lauren Conrad: Sweet Little Lies
Lauren Conrad: Sugar and Spice


The L.A Candy series is loosely based on the author's life and details the life of a young woman who moves to Los Angeles and becomes the star of a reality show on TV. I am looking forward to reading these books, and I love the covers.

I also bought a lot of books this week:

Bought:
Michael Grant: Gone 3 - Lies ( I bought the Norwegian translation)
Alyson Noel: Dark Flame ( The Immortals 4)
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Chamber if Secrets
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Lauren Kate: Torment
Jane Eagland: Wildthorn

I must be one of the few persons on this planet, who have not read anything by J.K. Rowling yet. So, I decided to do something about it. I also needed to have book 3 in the Gone - series. I recently read the first book in the series, and loved it.

The Immortal - series by Alyson Noel is one of my favorites, but since I am buying the books from the UK I have not read "Dark Flame" yet.

"Torment" was a great read. I reviewed the book on my blog based on a manuscript I received from the publisher, but I wanted to have my own copy of the book as well. "Wildthorn" is a book I have heard great things about, so I wanted to buy it. And the cover is gorgeous.

Now, I only need to find more reading time. I wish I could spend a whole week just reading books. That would be like heaven.

What did you get in your mailbox?

PS: I also reached 300 followers the past week. That is amazing. I need to celebrate that the next week. More information will be posted soon.
