In My Mailbox is a meme previously hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and now hosted by The Mod Podge Bookshelf, which allows us to share the books we’ve bought, borrowed and received.
This has got to be one of my favourite IMMs on account of the awesomeness I got :D
Oh, and I apologize in advance for the overload of pictures. I couldn't help it!
I bought the Divergent & Insurgent box set last Tuesday because I just needed paperbacks of these amazing books along with that of Allegiant. I've already read Allegiant now, and I don't want to say anything here. But HERE is my spoiler-ish post filled with my thoughts on the book and the series as a whole!
The bookstore kindly gave me a free copy of The Path to Allegiant along with my purchase :)
These are the contents of the box set in its entirety. Divergent, Insurgent, and The World of Veronica Roth's Divergent Series booklet. Along with The Path to Allegiant booklet I got :) Don't they all look amazing? The Path to Allegiant and The World of Divergent booklets both have a lot of overlapping content, which I didn't know, but I loved the stuff in them regardless. The explanations behind everything, the faction manifestos, and the faction quiz.
And the Tuesday after, which was this Tuesday, I went and bought the Allegiant paperback! Sometimes I love living outside the US because we get special international paperback editions of books that aren't sold in places like the US or UK :D
Isn't that Allegiant paperback gorgeous? Also, the bookstore gave me ANOTHER free booklet of The Path to Allegiant, since it was a different cashier this time and she didn't know I already had it. So yeah, I have two now :) She also gave me this really cool booklet of Teardrop by Lauren Kate, which I'm dying to read. This booklet has an excerpt, and I loved it.
So here are my beautiful paperbacks of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, side by side. I adore them so much, even though I really hated so many parts of Allegiant :/

I quite liked Destiny and For Real. They were good and enjoyable, but nothing exceptional. Look out for my reviews of them during my tour stops :)
I just read Mine, which is the sequel to Real, and absolutely loved it! It's seriously amazing and I'm now dying for the next one. My review will be up on the 6th of November.
I was so excited when I got The Almost Girl and Shadowplay from NetGalley. The Almost Girl sounds so amazing, and I love sci-fi so I can't wait to read this. And OMG Shadowplay! It's the sequel to Pantomime, which is one of the best 2013 debuts I've read. If you haven't read that one yet, get to it soon!
