In My Mailbox (25)

Posted by

“In My Mailbox” is a meme, created by Kristi at The Story Siren, that features books I have

received/ purchased/ borrowed during the week.Β 

Guess what lovelies? Spring is in a few weeks! EEP. Can’t wait to go out again in the warm sun *sigh*. This week was pretty busy here on the blog. Zombie month is over and I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous zombie posts. March is already starting with a bang: have you all seen the gorgeous Black City cover reveal? You can even read the 1st chapter, AND win an ARC: Click here! It’s even open internationally so that’s pretty awesome – big thanks to Penguin Books for Young Readers. I also revealed the cover for Karice Bolton’s upcoming New Adult book – Lonely Souls. Check it out!

In other Xpresso news; in case you missed it, The Weeping blog tour dropped by on Tuesday for an awesome dream cast, my review and a chance to win a SIGNED copy – have a look! As for future tours, you can look forward to April 23rd when I’ll have the Siege tour dropping by. This is the 3rd book in Rhiannon Frater’s As The World Dies zombie trilogy, which is an incredible series that you REALLY have to read! You can read my glowing review on the first book here. Well, that’s all for highlights this week. Moving on to my mailbox!

I received for review:
Β This cover is SO shiny and pretty, I really love how it looks in real life.Β 
I just finished it too and it’s awesome!

*I big thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Taryn Browning, Kendall Grey, Random House Children’s Books and Random House Canada for the review copies!
I also received this awesome swag from two of my favorite bloggers: Andrea from The Bookish Babes, and the really neat Hunger Games charm bracelet from Savannah from Books with Bite.
So this is my haul this week!
What pretties did you get?

    I loved GRAVE MERCY and am excited the embargo is over so I can finally read it! I just requested THE STONE GIRL off NG this morning. I received a physical ARC of STARTERS this week at work, which is awesome, since the e-ARC is expired, I think!

  20. Michelle

    I loved Starters and the book cover looks amazing, I must buy a copy soon. I have seen Grave Mercy but not the other books so I will checkthem out πŸ˜€
    Love the swag you got, check out My IMM

    Oh, Grave Fever. I almost requested that one, it looks interesting. I can’t wait to read your review of it.


  24. Andrea @The Bookish Babes

    Hi, Giselle!

    I’m so glad you got the bookmarks! They’re pretty gorgeous. I am really happy you took Inhale for review. Kendall is an amazing writer. I can’t wait to see what you think. I hope you enjoy all the books!

  25. Lexie

    Okay, so you got a lot of REALLY awesome books this week–Starters, Grave Mercy (which I’ve heard so many good things about), Hanging by a Thread–but the star of the week is undeniably the Hunger Games charm bracelet. SO JEALOUS. I need one.

    Awesome bracelet!! Great mailbox; I added Starters and Inhale to my TBR list! I just grabbed up Grave Mercy from NetGalley this week and have seen people gushing about how great it is so I think it might need to jump to the head of the list! πŸ™‚ Check out our IMM this week!

    I heard Grave Mercy was on NetGalley this week and somehow I was under my usual rock and missed it. Gah!! I love the cover for Starters. I didn’t manage to snag an ARC so I’ll be waiting for it to be released to read it. I keep hearing great things about it.

    Happy Reading!
