In My Mailbox (#1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where bloggers show what books they have bought, been gifted or borrowed in the last week.

Okay, so this is my first IMM post! This week, considering it is the week after Christmas, I decided to do a bit of light bookshopping with my £50 voucher for Waterstones (yes, I was squealing with excitement too!). So, here is my haul:

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - okay, so I don't have a copy Clockwork Angel, but oh well: JEM IS ON THE COVER! Forever alone being forever in love with fictional characters.
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce & Sweetly by Jackson Pearce - So I just had to buy a copy of Sisters Red since I loved it so much, and I have been waiting on Sweetly, the second installment to the Fairytale Retellings series. (this time about Hansel and Gretel)
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder -  I hadn't heard of this book before, but it reminded me a lot of Matched (by Ally Condie) and The Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins), so I thought it'd be worth a try.
Alice In Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll - so I went into this nerdy-comic-booky-marvel-lego-figurine shop with my little brother because he wanted some Doctor Who figures, and I was browsing the comic/book section when I found this amazing copy of Alice In Wonderland. It has the lovliest drawings in it (look at the second picture) and the writing and paper is just...yeah. Lovely. I think I already have a copy of Alice In Wonderland somewhere, but I can't find it and this copy is nicer so...

What's in your mailbox this week?
