In My Mailbox - August 21, 2011

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren where we show what books have found a new home with us!

Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday - I love murder mysteries but have to admit I discovered this book because of  it's beautiful cover!
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon - I'm a huge fan of fate, add in the "darkly handsome Adam DeRĂ­s" and I was sold!
Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson - "Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness. Elisa is the chosen one." In addition to fate, I'm a sucker for struggles with destiny...and from what I've heard, the world building is amazing.

Isle of Blood by Rick Yancey -the third (and NOT final) book in the Monstrumologist series.
Variant by Robison Wells - Two people at Harper said this was full of win (they did the same for Divergent), also liking that this is a male protagonist!
Goliath by Scott Westerfeld - the final book in the Leviathan trilogy, I can't wait! I am fascinated by the artwork and have already snuck a peak :D

A few classics to add to my collection. Sadly, when I was putting the books on my shelf (I'm going to read them 'one day' LOL) I realized I already have the same Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde! I must make a list of what I have already then see about exchanging this one.

What goodies did you get this week?
