In My Mailbox (6)

Posted by

“In My Mailbox” is a meme, created by Kristi at The Story Siren, that features books I’ve 
received/ purchased/ borrowed during the current week. 

How are you all doing this week? I had a pretty uneventful one, really. It’s getting cold and steady rain is kind of boring, but great for reading (glass half full, right?). So this week I suddenly got a bunch of ARCs that I had requested as well as a few author review requests, so the list is a little crazy. I’m glad the release dates are scattered or I’d never be able to get them all posted in time. 
What I got for review (click on cover for Goodreads synopsis):
I want to thank Random House, Harlequin, Walker Chilren’s Book, Entangled Publishing, Taryn Browning, Jodi Lamm and Ali Cross for the review copies.

I have won
 Thanks to Mari of Escape In A Book & Avery of Avery’s Book Nook.
I have bought:

So I think I’m all set for a little while (or until next week at least). I’m currently reading Liesl & Po and so far it’s incredible I love it. I’m also really excited about Hunting Lila and Witch Song I have been looking forward to them for months and I only got them now. 
What have you all gotten? Make sure to leave me a link so I can drop by.

    Fantastic haul this week!! Lola and Hunting Lila are both AMAZING books! Hunting Lila especially! It needs more love and recognition <3 I received Dark Seeker as well; can't wait to read it! I've heard great things about Obsidian! I think the average rating on goodreads is like 5? Can't wait for its release!

    I’ve still gotta get The Girl of Fire and Thorns. It’s the only book from last month I didn’t get, but I love high fantasy, so it totally sounds like my kind of book.

    I really want to read Hunting Lila, too. Oh, and Demon Lover looks great.

  7. Grace Fonseca

    Oh i’m so jealous that you got Fracture. I want that one so badly. Good amount of books. Rae Carson will be at Books of Wonder in November. Great haul. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

    Oh wow, you do have a number of lovely books this week. I see a few familiar ones:
    Liesl and Po and Fracture – seems to have been shared to quite a number of book bloggers recently. Nice!
    Among the titles you have here, I am interested in “The Girl in the Dark” and “Titan Magic.”
    You do have your reading cut out for you. Have fun!

    Here’s my IMM:

    Wow lots of interesting books! Hope you enjoy Liesl and Po.

    [FYI, I’m having problems with your blog on Firefox. The XX comments text covers up the Post comment button so I’m unable to post any comments. Is there something you could maybe tweak to fix it?]

  10. Ron C. Nieto

    What a great, huge pile! Stress on the huge 🙂

    I’ve been wondering about the Girl of Fire and Thorns for a good while now. Demon lover and Dark Seeker both look promising. I’ll be looking forward to your comments on them!

    Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by my blog
