In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox at The Story Siren

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, and inspired by her friend, Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a way to share the books that you've received over the past week. They could come from the bookstore, the library, a friend, your mailbox or wherever. It gives us all a chance to showcase the books that we've gotten, and maybe give others an idea for the book they want to read or buy next. :)

For Review:

 Dark Companion  by Marta Acosta (Sent by author)
All Hallows Moon (Seasons of the Moon #2) by S.M. Reine (Sent by author)


I'm really excited to read Dark Companion, it sounds amazing! :D And, I've already finished All Hallows Moon....and I loved it! I'll be reviewing it in a few weeks for All Hallows Moon's blog tour, I'll also be hosting a few other posts for the blog tour, so look out for those in upcoming weeks. :D

From NetGalley:

Prized (Birthmarked Trilogy #2) by Caragh M. O'Brien
Crave (The Clann #1) by Melissa Darnell
Ladies in Waiting by Laura L. Sullivan
Heart of the Druid Laird by Barbara Longley

I didn't actually request too many NetGalley titles this week, but these ones were all approved this week, so I guess it amounts to pretty much the same thing....more awesome books I'll try to read. :P Sometimes I wish I had a time turner. lol

I had lots of Book depository books show up this week, so yay for that! I'm so stoked for The Power of Six, I've been wanting it for forever! :D I've also already read a bunch of these, but I wanted finished copies. Shut Out, The DUFF, Supernaturally, and The Gathering, were all ones that I've loved and wanted to have nice pretty finished copies of, so I've been looking for deals with them, and I got lucky in the last little while. :D I'm also very excited for a few of these; Hourglass, A Need So Beautiful, and Juliet Immortal, are ones that I've been wanting to read super badly, so now I can! :D

My friend also took a bunch too, so as you can imagine, Zoë gave us tonnes and tonnes of books! Thank you so much Zoë, and it was fantastic getting to meet you! This was the first time that I've met a blogger that I met through blogging face to face. (I've actually stumbled across one before, yup, if you're reading this, I'm talking about you Nicole. :P lol) It was a fantastic experience, and I only wish we were closer than 5 hours away...then we could meet up more often! :D 
Well, I guess I should talk about these books too! haha I'm pretty excited for a lot of these, they've been on my list for a while! Now I just have to decide which to read first! haha

  3. Yay I'm glad there were so many you liked and it was the perfect book swap according to my boyfriend ;) He said I should always trade in a similar ratio. I had a wonderful time hanging out with the two of you and I definitely wish we lived closer! I'm going to have to try to make it up to Edmonton at some point.

    It's exciting so many of your book depo books arrived, yay for a finished copy of The Gathering, I loved that! (And it's thanks to you I read the entire darkest powers series so far). I haven't read any of the others but I am really looking forward to hourglass myself.

    Also don't worry about the Sims Social, I'm totally hooked now too.

    @Amber Griffiths: The DUFF is fantastic! I hope you manage to get your hands on a copy! Either by buying, library, or mysterious happenings of fate! haha Thanks! :D

    @Rebecca: It definitely has a wow factor going on, doesn't it. :) I'm still in shock that I got so many this week, although my shoulder isn't because it's still feeling the strain from carrying a bunch of those books this weekend. haha ;D Thanks! :D
