IMM/Book Haul: And a few other things...

During this week. And, last week. I got some very awesome things in the mail. Some which I forgot to share with you guys. Once again another week of receiving literature in the mail and digitally, listening to music, struggling with that inner voice and attempting to draw pictures that look realistic.

Here's what I got:

I was supposed to be banned, but I got mum a mother's day present from there so I decided to buy myself a few things as well. I know I'm a naughty girl.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)
'Divergent' by Veronica Roth
-I finally got a copy. It's supposedly really good. This cover is more girly than the original one. I like the birds on it. I'm not sure about the font and all the pink though.

Smoke and Mirrors
'Smoke and Mirrors' by Neil Gaiman
-An anthology. Again, Finally! Neil Gaiman has said or written some great quotes that I absolutely adored. It was about time that I actually read something of his don't you think?

Doctor Zhivago
'Dr Zhivago' by Boris Pasternak (Translated by Richard Pevar and Larissa Volokhonsky)
-Dad has been onto me for ages about this one. He wanted me to watch the movie, but I saw this very pretty edition on Fishpond and went for it. It is quite a tomb too.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins
-Yes! again with the "Finally"s . I thought that if I was going to get out from under my rock and buy a kindle I may as well get this too. Cost me less than $5 on the kindle store. not bad.


-'Bloody Little Secrets' by Karly Kirkpatrick
(It had good reviews so I got it, but I didn't like what I've read so far)

-'Dream War' by Stephen Prosapio
(I thought it might be a little bit Inception-y)

-'Tess of the d'Ubervilles' by Thomas Hardy

-Big Fish
-Mad Men (Seasons 2 &3)
-Jane Eyre (The Newest One)
-Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows

-Norah Jones: Little Broken Hearts
-Garbage: Not Your Kind of People

-Bought it on ebay for about $12 ish
-It's Black and green, but thanks to the lighting in my room the green looks more khaki in the photo

-Recieved last week
-Total of purchase was less than $20 which is pretty cheap really compared to junk jewelry shops I've been to.

I got (In order from left to right, top to bottom):
-A Key Necklace
-A Cameo Necklace (of a Cat in a Queens Outfit)
-An Octopus Necklace
-A Deer Necklace
-Deer head earrings
-A bird and flower necklace

I bought them from:

I took the pics using my mobile phone and the paper underneath was something that came in a Frankie Mag.

What did you get in your Mail box this week?
