In My Mailbox is a meme held by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren, which encourages bloggers to share what books have made it into their house each week.
This week was the best book week EVER... because it was my birthday yesterday and I got some awesome bookish presents! Note: I won't be including descriptions this week because my Internet is being really slow at the moment.
What I got:
I had been toying up getting a Kindle for a while because I always thought that I'd be completely loyal to print books and never buy an e-reader but curiosity, the good things I've been hearing about Kindle and the lure of sites like Net Galley got the better of me. I'm so glad that they did! I've spent all afternoon reading on it and downloading all the free classics and I'm starting to love it. Though, it's just an accompaniment to my reading because my Kindle could *never* replace my physical books... it's a totally different reading experience! I'm planning to do a post with my thoughts on it soon :)
Books (thank you you to my parents):
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Daughter Of Xanadu by Dori Jones Yang
Waterfall by Lisa T Bergen
Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend by Cora Harrison
These were all on my birthday wishlist so I'm really happy and can't wait to read them! You can have a look at why I want to read these books on my wishlist post. The cover of Entwined is even more beautiful in person :)

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
