In My Mailbox (26)

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:

 Black Heart (Curse Workers #3) by Holly Black (Simon and Schuster Canada)
  The P.U.R.E. by Claire Gillian (J. Taylor Publishing)
 Somnium (Halos #1) by Keri Lake (from the author)
 Partials (Partials #1) by Dan Wells (Netgalley and HarperCollins)
  Invisible Sun ( #2) by David Macinnis Gill (Netgalley and HarperCollins)
  The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry (Netgalley and Abrams)

I actually went all fangirl when I got Black Heart in the mail! I'm so excited to read it! I can't wait to find out what happens to Cassel! I'm also excited for the others, Partials, especially. I was so glad to find out it was on Netgalley! :D Oh, and the cover of The Peculiars is really blurry here because it was tiny, and I asked a representative from Abrams about the cover, and they said they're still finalizing it, so this won't be the final one, just thought I'd let everybody know that. :)

Bought:

  Hidden (Otherworld Stories #10.4, Novella) by Kelley Armstrong (Subterranean Press)
 Getting the Girl by Susan Juby (Chapters)
 Sophomore Switch by Abby McDonald (Chapters)
 A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis (Chapters)
  Evernight (Evernight #1) by Claudia Gray (The Book Cellar)
  The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz (The Book Cellar)
 Undercover by Beth Kephart (The Book Cellar)

I was so excited to finally get my copy of Hidden in the mail! :D I've had this pre-ordered since last year, before summer even started! So, I've been waiting for this book to be completed, then mailed out and everything for quite some time! I'm so glad to finally get it in my hands! I ordered one of the limited edition ones. It's gorgeous! White leather, and colour pictures! So pretty, and it's signed by Kelley and the artist, Angilram! :D I also picked up a copy of A Million Suns, which I'm psyched for, and some other books that I found that were at great prices! :D

Library:

 The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard

So excited for this one, and it's also on my one reading challenge list! :D

If you can't tell, I've had one of those awesome mailbox weeks that makes me squee like crazy! haha I'd like to say thank you to Simon and Schuster Canada, J. Taylor Publishing, HarperCollins, Abrams, Netgalley, and Keri Lake! :D Also, I realized I forgot to put my thank yous in my last IMM, so thank you to anyone I missed last week, especially Zoë...who I mentioned, but never actually said thank you to, so I'm saying it now. :)

So, how about your mailbox? Did you get anything squee-worthy??
Feel free to leave a link to your IMM in the comments and I'll stop by and visit. :)


Happy Reading!!!

  3. Wow! What a mailbox! I got my copy of Hidden too but mine is just a regular one. I ordered it in early December and was afraid I wouldn't get one before they sold out but Amazon came through for me. I also have a copy of A Million Suns but it came without any drama. Now I just need to find the time to read them.

    My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

    Enjoy your books!

  10. ..I'm pretty sure you did thank me multiple time even if you missed doing it on the post, but you're welcome and I'm excited to read it together!

    Also great books this week, especially lusting over A Million Suns. It better not end on a cliffhanger...damn middle books!

  11. Ooooh, I'm reading The PURE right now. :o) And I read Halos over Christmas and enjoyed it. Looking forward to hear what you think about those two. :o)

  12. @Zoë: That's true, but it's not the same as a public thank-you :P Me too! :D I'm hoping if it is a cliffhanger that it isn't a torturous one. :P

    @jabelfield: Oooh! Glad to hear you liked it, and hopefully you're enjoying The PURE :) And hopefully you will soon...or at least not too long from now, it depends on if my travel writing class ever allows me free time to read. :P
