In My Mailbox (7)

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. 

Happy Halloween my lovely readers! Sadly, I don’t have a costume this year. But my 16 month old’s is a dragon! And when we ask him what a dragon does, he goes “raaawwrrr”. How could I beat that? 
So yeah… books… =)
Here’s what I got this week. (Click on cover for Goodreads synopsis.)

For review:

I want to thank Random House, Delacorte Press, Entangled Publishing, Jessie Harrell and Elisa Ludwig for the review copies.

I won:

As you can see I have already read and reviewed Smoke and Bone and it was fantastic! I’ve also finished Destined a couple of days ago – watch for my review on November 15th – but just a hint: really enjoyed it and perfect for greek myth fans!

What goodies did you get this week?

    Oooh I noticed that I got The Unbearable Book Club for Unsinkable Girls and Hushed after I had already done my IMM so they’ll appear next week! I’m a part of the book tour for Hushed also! I’m pretty excited to read the book!

    You got some great books this week! Will have to get my hands on a copy of Destined!

    Looks like you got a lot of fabulous new things. And I totally agree — Daughter of Smoke and Bone is an amazing book.

    I am a huge Greek Myth nut so I will definitely have to check out Destined. I am also curious about The Unbearable Book Club for Unsinkable Girls. That certainly has a unique title!

    Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by earlier. 🙂 I will have to bump The Night Circus up on my list and let you know what I think. 🙂

  4. Jennie

    Oh, I’ve been wanting to read Destined for a while now. I love Greek Mythology re-tellings! Don’t You Wish sounds really good too. Hope you enjoy all your new books!

    And OMG your son looks so cute!! Aww, so adorable!

    DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. I want that book SO BAD. I’m pretty sure I need it. Destined looks pretty cool too, I’ll have to check out your review!

    Hi Giselle!
    Aw, your son looks like an adorable dragon!

    Red Heart Tattoo look interesting, but I haven’t actually heard of any of those apart from DoSaB – I really really want to read that one! Everyone makes it sound great 🙂

    Here’s my IMM this week: The Book Bundle


  7. Brodie

    Haha! Aww, that is the most adorable dragon I have ever seen ;D Oooh you had an awesome book week. So eager to read Don’t You Wish. Destined and Red Heart Tatoo. Love greek mythology and the idea of parallel universes in DYW has me SO intrigued.

    Ahh, I LOVED Smoke and Bone aswell! <3 Happy reading!

  8. Carina Olsen

    Great mailbox! I can’t wait to read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. The Unbearable Book Club for Unsinkable Girls also sounds like fun.

  11. Jessie Harrell

    Love ur little dragon. He is SO cute!!
    Loved Duaghter of Smoke & Bone. Thanks for including Destined. :). Oh yeah, I’m also part of the Hushed tour. Can’t wait to dive into it.

  12. Michelle

    Love the dragon outfit 😀

    I have only heard of Smoke and Bone (congrats on the win) and I still need to read it. But some of your other books look interesting so I will be looking forward to reading your reviews on them

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM

    Hi Giselle, the dragon costume is BEAUTIFUL. Loved the rawr. My nine year old daughter is channeling her inner lady gaga (with the white hair) slash white lady slash fairy slash the woman from ‘the ring’ and ‘the grudge’ – gosh, an identity crisis at age nine, huh?

    These are all unfamiliar titles to me. But I’ve seen quite a bit of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I hope it was an enjoyable read (will check out your review soon).

  15. SweetMarie83

    I love your little dragon! Too cute. 🙂
    You got some great books this week. I’m SO jealous of The Demon Lover, I want to read that so bad. I got Hushed this week too, and I see on your side bar you’re going to be part of the blog tour, too! Happy reading, Giselle!

  16. Ron C. Nieto

    Haha! The kid’s just too cute 🙂 And your books aren’t half bad! Daughter of Smoke and bone is something I keep wondering about, so I’ll be looking forward to your comments to decide wether I read it or not in the end.

    Enjoy the reading! And thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

    Your little dragon is mighty cute!!

    Wow, I just don’t know if I can read Red Heart Tattoo. Sounds good, but sad too. I read Columbine and was struggling not to cry. Just devastating. Adding The Demon Lover to my list too!

  18. Peggy

    Destined looks interesting! I can’t wait to read Daughter of Smoke and Bones when I get a chance. I have heard fantastic things about it!

  19. Bea

    Your little boy is adorable!

    I keep hearing mixed reviews on Daughter of Smoke and Bone,I think it’s one of those I’ll need to check out for myself.

    Enjoy and Happy Halloween.

  20. Tee
