In My Mailbox (28)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is designed to put new books on people's radars, and encourage blogger interaction.

Here's what I received during the past week:


Birthday Gift:

I've been coveting those Harry Potter books since they came out. I already own the whole series, but I kept talking about how much I loved those covers. Well my Mom got an amazing deal on them (basically half of the usual retail price) so she got them for me for my birthday. I just love the whole box set! I'd love to collect different covers for the series (e.g. the American ones, the adult covers) in the future.

  1. I've not seen that box set before, but I am falling in love with those covers!

  2. I have Bloomsbury's Signature HP collection and they look a lot like the books you posted but the covers are different for most of the book. Maybe I must collect the Canadian versions too!

  3. Oooh Ashley! That Harry Potter set is gorgeous! :D And I agree, it would be so neat to have a complete collection with different covers. I have all the books myself, but they're an eclectic mix, the first four are from the Scholastic Book Order, and the last three are all hardcover...I'd love for them to all match! One day I'll get a full set that's all matching. ;)

    Oh, and the swag you sent me came this week! I didn't get it until Fridaya because that's when I came home to my parents house, but I think it came a couple days before that. And your note totally made me smile, thanks! :D

    I haven't started my IMM post...I should get on that. haha I'll get it done eventually. :P lol

    I hope you enjoy your awesome new HP books, Ashley! :D And the other ones you've gotten this week. :D
    Happy reading!

  4. I got As I Wake as well!

    And I love those HP covers! I love it that they come all wrapped up and stuff! Or it just made to look like it's wrapped up...I'm not sure, lol.

  5. Wow, those are really cool. Don't hit me, but I haven't read the HP series. I don't know why.

  6. What an awesome gift to receive for your birthday! And I can't wait to hear what you think of Elizabeth Scott's As I Wake! Happy reading! :)

  7. Love those Harry Potter covers - what an awesome birthday gift.
    I was just considering whether to pick up the new Elizabeth Scott book today. Looking forward to your review of As I Wake.
    Happy reading :)

  8. Ashley, I think I'm coveting your Harry Potter books!!
    I own the whole series too but I want these!

    Happy Birthday again! :D

  9. Ahh, the complete Harry Potter collection! -so pretty-

    Love the cover for The Emerald Talisman, it's simple yet eye catching!

    Awesome book week! :D

  10. I think the covers are cool, but I am just not for changing the covers to get more money. :( Now if they are just because you live in a different country thats cool, but I have seen to many books do a redo of the cover just to reprint them and to me it is just a ploy to make more money off of people who already have the books. They do look cool though!

    Curious to see what you think of As I wake!

  11. Wow! How absolutely gorgeous is that Harry Potter collection? I think it's safe to say I'm more than a tad bit jealous:) Awesome mailbox this week Ashley!

  12. I've never seen those covers before! It's so unique! What an amazing birthday gift!

    Happy reading!

    Please check out my IMM!

  13. Happy Birthday!

    I love those new covers for Harry Potter! They are so simple yet gorgeous.

  14. Drooling over those HPs. Enjoy your birthday gift.

  15. I love that Harry Potter series set that comes in a nice box. But I already have all the books so it's hard to spend the money. Maybe if I found that good deal like your mom! Happy Birthday!

  16. I love that Harry Potter set it's lovely!! Very jealous that you have it

  17. So I was coming to comment and then I saw that edition of the HP books and had to google ALL editions of the HP books. Needless to say, I've been reading for a while! That was a really cool birthday gift and I love the package they came in. Hope you enjoy all your books this week!

  18. Oh, wow, those HP books look AWESOME, Ashley!! I have the 4th and 5th ones, haha. Enjoy!

  19. oh i absolutely cannot wait to read 'as i wake' O.o (my copy has not arrived yet, takes 3 week of the book depository to make it to Australia :/)

    also, congrats on the awesome harry potter set :)
