In my Mailbox #14

So, it's Sunday again, guys!! And that means it's time for another In my Mailbox! I love this feature - not just because I get to share with you which books I've been getting, but because I can see what other book bloggers have been receiving too! I can't help being nosy! :)
So, as always, we'll do the physical books first and then the eBooks at the end.

And as always, you can click on the images to view the goodreads page for the synopsis (or to add it to your wishlist ;P)


Physical books: From work (Waterstone's)





Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte: I already have a copy of this, I know, but it is one of the very beautiful Barnes & Noble leather bound editions and I don't want to ever damage it by taking it out of the house, so this copy will be my out-and-about copy of the book, so I can still read it, even when I'm not going to be at home. I read the first chapter last night, and it looks like I'm going to enjoy it. Still can't believe it has taken me this long!

Before I go to Sleep by S. J. Watson: I already had this on my kindle, but the smaller version paperback has just been released in the UK, and I love the cover, and fancied reading it from a physical copy, so I bought one. My mum actually got the larger format paperback for Christmas, but I don't want to steal it to read before she has!

Heartless by Gail Carriger: I finished reading Soulless earlier in the week and loved it, so I bought this with my staff discount while we still had it in stock. I've only read one of the series so far, and already I know I'm going to be in love with all of them!
Look out later for my interview with Gail Carriger herself!!

Looking for Alaska by John Green: I got this simply because I just fancied it. I don't really need to explain any more. After posting it as my Wishlist Wednesday this week, how could I resist?!

From Amazon

The Cambridge Introduction to Creative Writing: This is one I've had to order for my University course. When I start back on the 23rd, I will be studying my Life Writing and Creative Writing modules, which is very exciting. It also means that I'm having to order a shed-full of new books! Goodness knows where I'm going to keep them all....
My life would have been made so much easier if Waterstone's stocked this book, but oddly we don't, hence the amazon purchase.



From The Book Depository

Tempest by Julie Cross: I've seen this around on so many blogs, and the bloggers had either said how excited they were about it, or given it really great reviews, so I had to have it! I ordered it from the book dep. late last week and it arrived a couple of days ago.
I'm very excited about reading this one!









eBooks

The Guardian's Wildchild by Feather Stone: This one, as you may have noticed from the right side-bar of my blog, is for a book blog tour, which I will posting for nearer to the end of February. I managed to join the tour as a late entry, thankfully. I'm really looking forward to reading this one. The review will not be an official part of my blog tour, but I shall be posting the review during that time.
Alongside my official blog tour post, I will be running a giveaway of the book too, so it's definitely one to keep your eyes open for!

Jane Eyre! Wahooo! I've wanted to read this one for ages but somehow never managed to - I downloaded it on my Kindle a while ago, though. I'm really looking forward to reading it. :)

Before I Go To Sleep is on my wishlist so I'm hoping I'll be able to get myself a copy soon. Nice haul hun! I hope you had a great week <3

Here's my IMM for this week.

Much love x x x

I'm the same, Vicky! Always meant to read it, but somehow never have!! The first chapter was good, so I'm hoping I'll enjoy it. I think it's going to be one that I read between reading other books. xxx

Before I go to sleep and Looking for Alaska are both really great - I enjoyed them a lot and I hope you do too! I'm currently reading Tempest. It'll be great to see what you think of it!

Check out my IMM here!

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. I honesty want to own every edition of it. I actually like the movie edition too.

I also really like Looking for Alaska. Never seen that cover before.
