In My Mailbox (01/10/11)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, 
in which you post all of the books/e-books/audio books that you have recieved/bought/won this week and link 'em all up!

I have had so much to do this week it's crazy, which explains the lack of reviews (I'll get back to normal soon!). I've also behaved myself, instead of buying Sweetly and Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce for £10 for both, I bought my mum an expensive birthday pressie! 

That does mean that I have a small mailbox this week though (waaaah!)

Received for review:

Carrier of the Mark   Far From the War

The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon (27th October, HarperCollins) - YES! So excited I can't explain it, definitely starting that soon-ish! :)

Far from The War by Jeffrey David Payne (September 17th 2011) - Shipped all the way from the US for me! :)
From Swaps:

Vixen (Flappers, #1)The Healing Wars (1) - The Pain Merchants: Book One
Vixen by Jillian Larkin - This series sounds great and I can't wait to read it! (ARC)
The Pain Merchants by Janice Hardy - the cover grabbed me, but it sounds amazing and I cannot wait to read it!

From Liz at Planet Print

Divergent (Divergent, #1) Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)
Divergent by Veronica Roth - Which I have already read and loved, I gave my copy away and wanted a pretty copy for my bookshelf!
