In My Mailbox (8)

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.

So, already November! Ack! We got our first freaky snow fall that was almost blizzard-like. Then the next day it was sunny and 15 (celcius). The fun of living in Canada! =)
So, here’s what I got this week!
I got for review: 
Click on cover for Goodreads:

I won:

I bought:
I’m pretty happy about my haul 🙂 I want to thank Heather McCorkle, Karice Bolton, Julianna Baggott, HarperCollins and Tor Teen for the review copies!
What about you? Have you gotten anything good this week?

    Fury just went on my wishlist. LOVE that cover.

    Curious about The Secret of Spruce Knoll from the cover! Once I comment I’m going to go look into it too. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by mine! Hope you have a great week.

  2. Meghan @ Books and a Cup of Tea

    I was wondering why the cover of Unlovable looked familiar! They are both so different, even though it’s the same picture. Thank you for your comment on my IMM :).

    Great IMM! I really want to read Deadly Cool and Variant. They both look great!

    I’m receiving Article 5 soon, from a giveaway, so I hope that one’s good too!

  3. Felicia

    Wow! You got a bunch of stuff! I’ve been dying to read Deadly Cool and Hallowed. I got Everneath a while back too. I read Angel burn and it was awesome and can’t wait for the sequel. The awakening looks pretty interesting too.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Jealous of Article 5! I’m still waiting for mine to come in the mail. Great haul this week! Liked Variant and hope you do to! Not familiar with Pure and will have to look that up…

    I’ll try to send some Los Angeles weather your way. 😉

    Great books this week. I just got a copy of Under the Never Sky today (technically Saturday, but the clocks go back tonight SO it’s still Saturday!!) and I can’t wait to dive into it!
    I’ll admit that I wasn’t too big a fan of Angel Burn though, but hopefully you enjoy it!
    Happy reading!

  6. Jen

    So jealous of Everneath! I wasn’t approved on NetGalley, so I’m looking forward to your thoughts on that one especially!

  7. Gina @ My Precious

    So VERY jealous of your stack this week. Quite a few titles I’ve been lusting for: Pure, I just love that cover btw, is one I’ve been really dying to read. Deadly Cool is another one, which sounds great. I went to good reads to find out more about Spruce Knoll. It sounds enticing. I’m curious about Fury is that a different cover? Variant is something which interests me a lot, Article 5 is dystopian sounding – I like those reads. Finally, the number one book I’m totally jealous of is Hallowed. I hope you enjoy them all. I’ll check back frequently for your reviews.

  8. Madigan McGillicuddy

    What a fantastic set of books. I’m looking forward to reading a lot of these. I’ll have to add some to my To-Be-Read list, like Under the Never Sky and Fury. I love the cover for The Secret of Spruce Knoll.

  9. Janus Vielle Aragones

    Hmm.. I’ve never experienced snow at all but blizzard-like sounds awful enough for me.. Crazy weather all around.. ha! ha!

    O wow! Article 5!!! I’m really looking forward to reading that.
    Let me know what you think of Angel Burn, I’m still undecided on reading it or not. It’s my first time to encounter Spruce Knoll, it looks interesting, I’ll check that out.

    Great haul! Happy reading!

    Thanks for all your lovely comments!! 😉

    No Fury is NOT the same as the one you’re thinking (which I assume is the one by Elizabeth Miles and awful reviews). This one is from an Aussie author and it has gotten amazing reviews from my friends. Click on the link with the title it’ll send you to the Goodreads page with a synopsis.

  11. Laura (All of Everything)

    Everneath, Under the Never Sky and Hallowed are like a holy trio lol. I am loving Hallowed, though it’s breaking my heart! Still need to get to Pure and I’ve heard good things about Variant.
    Enjoy your books 🙂

  12. Kathy Ann Coleman

    Glad to see that you had such a great week. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by and taking a look at mine. Congrats on getting Under The Never Sky. They told me no. *shrugs* Can’t win ’em all, I guess. It comes out a week before my birthday so I’ll just get it then. Maybe I need to improve something on my Netgalley profile? All that stuff is still total Greek to me.

  13. jenn

    Nice haul! A lot of interesting ones you got there and I’ll have to look into them! So jealous you got Everneath!

    Happy reading:)

    Awesome mini book haul. I’ve read Angel Burn and liked it, but not as much as everyone else seemed to. I hope you do. Deadly Cool looks so pretty (the eyes!!).

  15. A. Knight

    I love getting signed ANYTHING and swag. It’s so pretty to have. Plus, I’m really excited for Article 5.

    Lucky girl! for snagging Hallowed, Under the Never Sky, and Everneath (have you SEEN the trailer??)! And I can’t wait to read Deadly Cool, but the cover looks different than on Goodreads *pouts*

    Wow, amazing books this week! I’m dying to read nearly all of these – especially UTNS, Everneath and Article 5!! You don’t mind if I come and steal all these, do you? Awesome 🙂

    Happy reading!

  22. Kristina

    Great books this week. Variant was an interesting read. I got Hallowed this week too and requested Everneath and Under The Never Sky and got those this morning. Can’t wait to read them. I hope that you enjoy your new books!

    As always, some great looking books! I think Pure will be a hit, and Awakening looks very intriguing. Awesome books!

    We got snow last weekend here in New England, but next week it’s supposed to get up to 70F!? Crazy weather this year! Some of the leaves haven’t even changed yet.

    Pure looks so good and the little pin is so stinking cute. I hope you enjoy Deadly Cool. I fell in love with that! Never heard of Fury but it looks good and I love that cover! Happy reading!

    I like your haul this week. And we both have the same ARC for review: Everneath. Can’t wait till we both get a review for it. I’ll come to see what you’ve written 🙂

  32. Novels On The Run

    My lordy you get a lot of comments!

    The Secret of Spruce Knoll, looks interesting. Some lovely books you have there, my dear!

    I know Blizzards aren’t good, but I would love to flop down and feel snow and make a snow angel:D


  33. mlisame

    A great haul! Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    I have to ask – where abouts are you? We’ve been experiencing lovely 13-15 degree weather for the past while – only had to scrape my car haven’t seen the snow yet….


  34. Katelyn

    You have SO MANY awesome books! I have wanted to read Deadly Cool since I saw the cover of it, gorgeous! Also, HALLOWED!!!!!!! I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  35. April

    Ooh, this is the second person I saw with Deadly cool, I’m dying to read that one… 🙂

    We already had our first snow here last weekend. A foot of snow right before Halloween. So dumb.. at least it all melted.

  36. Jena

    118 comments?! HOLY HECK.

    And well, I’m totes jealous you got Article 5!! You got so many good books this week! I hope you enjoy them all! 🙂

  37. Candace

    I’m suppose to be getting The Secret of Spruce Knoll too! I’m a bit worried it hasn’t arrived actually because she’s local to me. But anyway, hopefully it’s good! And yay for Pure!

  38. Missie

    Woohoo! Congrats on your win and on all the great review titles. All look good.

    Hope your shifty weather isn’t so bad. If it gets too cold, at least that is an excuse to curl up with a good book!

  39. Julie

    I can’t wait to read Article 5. I’ve been reading Pure. LOVE IT! It’s so unusual. I probably won’t post a review for awhile though. Happy reading 🙂

  40. danya

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! You’ve got an amazing book haul here. Article 5 sounds pretty intense and I’ve heard good things about Fury. Hope you enjoy!

  41. Alexa

    Looks like you got some really great books this week. I almost bought Deadly Cool a few days ago but I have only heard so-so things about it.

    Everneath was a great read and I am already dying for the second book even though the first one isn’t out yet!

    I hope you enjoy everything you got, thanks for stopping by Pages of Forbidden Love. 🙂

  42. Books4Juliet

    Oh wow! You have great set of books this week! I’m so jealous! I read Variant and I really liked it! The ending is a cliffie though and I’m excited for the sequel. I so want PURE and ARTICLE 5! I want Under the Never Sky, Everneath and Hollowed! Oh my, I want those books badly! You’re so lucky lucky lucky!!!


  43. Mimi Valentine

    Oh my gosh, you have Article 5 and Pure! Those are two books that I really, really want to read and I can’t wait to see whether or not you like them, Giselle! I really hope you do! 🙂 Plus, I just ordered my own copy of Deadly Cool too and I’m so excited to get it!

    Awesome mailbox, Giselle! I hope you enjoy all of the awesomeness in your mailbox this week! 🙂
