In My Mailbox (12)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie. It is a list of all the books that I've have received over the previous week, whether I won them, bought them, or borrowed them.

I bought two new sequels this week that I am really excited about reading. 

Hourglass by Claudia Gray
The Vampire Diaries: The Return and Shadow Souls by L.J. Smith

I really loved the Vampire Diaries series. I read it about a year ago, and it was nothing like the TV series. Sure, the show follows the general plot line, but the characters and story are very different. Not to mention that the amount of sex, alcohol, and drug content is much lower. Anyway, I've decided to reread the series before I read the fourth book. I haven't decided whether or not I will post reviews for the series. 

So, what did you guys get?

Both of your books look good. I have been looking at Hourglass because I know that I have the first two books on my TBR stack but haven't had a chance to read them yet. I hope to get to them soon.

I saw an episode of the Vampire Diaries while I was home for Christmas and thought it was interesting. I knew that I had the first two books on my TBR shelf. I pulled it off and read it. It was pretty good. But I had to order the second one and by the time it arrived I already had another stack of books to read. I just haven't gotten to it yet. Too many books, too little time.

Happy reading!

Hourglass looks good but I haven't started that series yet (on my TBR list). I did read the first Vampire Diaries book back when it was first published and I was a young teen. I really liked it but never got to read the rest of the series. I had heard that the books are different from the show which could be a good thing maybe. I hope you enjoy both of your books.

Here is what's in my mailbox.
