In My Mailbox (33)

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:

Touched by Cyn Balog (from Edelweiss and Random House)
Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson (from Edelweiss and Random House)
Kissing Shakespeare by Pamela Mingle (from Edelweiss and Random House)
Velveteen (Velveteen #1) by Daniel Marks (from Edelweiss and Random House)
Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers (from Thomas Allen and Sons)
Teen Boat! by Dave Roman (from Thomas Allen and Sons)
The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy #1) by Jennifer A. Nielsen (from Scholastic Canada)

Oh...Edelweiss! I absolutely love that site! They had a bunch of Random House books that they just put up, and I couldn't resist them! They're all ones that I've been really looking forward to! Thomas Allen sent me Grave Mercy, which I'm stoked for, and Teen Boat!, which I hadn't heard of, but am actually kind of excited to read, it looks fun! :D The False Prince is another one I hadn't heard of, but am actually pretty excited for, it sounds great. :D

Gifted for RAK:

The Goddess Hunt ( #1.5) by Aimee Carter (from Amber I. at Awesomesauce Bookclub)

I haven't gotten around to reading The Goddess Test yet, but having this novella definitely makes me want to get my butt in gear and start it! :D I'm really excited for this series! It sounds like something I'll absolutely love. :D

 Bought:

Phantom (The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters #1) by L.J Smith
Trace of Fever (Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor #2 by Lori Foster
Elemental (Elemental #0.5) by Brigid Kemmerer
I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Nine's Legacy (Lorien Legacies #2.5) by Pittacus Lore

My brother and I stopped at a Zellers that was closing down and having a liquidation sale, so I snagged Phantom and Trace of Fever for cheap! I'm signed up to do the blog tour for the 4th book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, so I've been collecting the other three...only one more left to get! Plus, the covers are just so yummy! ;) As for Phantom...well I still need to read the one before this, but it was cheap, so I figured, why not? :P Elemental was only $.99 on Amazon, and it's a prequel to Storm, which I'm so excited for! :D I also finally bought Nine's Legacy for my kindle...not sure how I waited this long because I love this series, and I'm really excited to learn more about Nine. :D So excited for it. :D

I'd like to thank Edelweiss, Random House, Thomas Allen and Sons, Scholastic Canada, and Amber! Thank you! :D

So, I hope you all had fabulous mail weeks, and I'd love to hear about what you got! :D
