In My Mailbox (30)

In My Mailbox is a meme originally hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren (click for more information) that shares all the new books you've bought, borrowed, received, or traded for the week.

Since I've been so busy lately I've barely gotten any new books, but I have a lot that are supposed to come in this week! :)
Received/for review:

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

Oh.my.goodness. I'm already finished with this book and it is definitely one of a kind. Look out for the review coming soon. 

Library/for review:

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Summary:(taken from Goodreads)

Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight — she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme, and in her case horrifying, skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace — or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away... a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

This isn't really my cup of tea, but I got many high recommendation so I decided to try it :) 

What's in your mailbox?

BOTH ARE HIGHLY REVERED BOOKS!! I'm getting a copy of Graceling, but I'm pining for a copy of Delirium, both ARC and finished. (since the ARC cover is fricken beautiful)
