In My Mailbox (27)

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. 

Hi guys! *waves* Spring is here I am so happy – it’s a BIG deal in Canada! We had awesome weather all week (2 weeks ago it was snowing and this week we had beach weather… yeah). I just hope it lasts. So, HUNGER GAMES!? Did you all see it? I went to the midnight showing and I was blown away! It’s honestly the best book to movie I’ve seen and definitely one that I will watch over and over (which I rarely do). The cast was perfect; every single one of them was just like I pictured and fit the roles perfectly. Really I could go on and on, I was incredibly impressed.

So I’ve got a couple highlights on the blog to mention this week, first I had a cover reveal for Cataclysm by Karice Bolton which you can see here. I’ve also got a new giveaway happening for the last book of my favorite series – As the World Dies by Rhiannon Frater – so you obviously have to check it out: enter here.

Here’s what I got this week for review (click on cover or title links for Goodreads):
*Big thanks to Shannon Eckrich, HarlequinTeen, Thomas Allen & Son and Hachette Canada for the review copies*
I also bought: 
Yep, I continue to stalk Rhiannon because she keeps rocking my face off!

    I am SO excited for I Hunt Killers!! Hoping to get it myself sometime in the next week, and I plan to read it first thing. Interested in The Immortal Rules as well, but I’m holding off on that one until I finish The Iron Fey series. Enjoy!

    Oh Giselle, can’t go wrong with some Rhiannon Frater =) Definitely looking forward to seeing how her vampire books are after LOVING what she does with zombies. (I’m starting book 2 today!)

    Wow – the Immortal Rules looks so dark! I think Rhiannon Frater is going to have a huge camp outside her house soon – everyone seems to be stalking her! 🙂

  6. Renae McKenzie

    I loved the Hunger Games, too! Though I didn’t manage to go to the midnight screening, I did go see it the day it came out – I even left school early to see it! xD

    I Hunt Killers looks so incredible! I am so jealous that you have it to read! I will be anxiously awaiting for your review to see what you thought about it!

    Come check out my IMM?

  14. Amy

    The Immortal Rules!! I got it too and I am reading it right now. I love the cover for Pretty When She Dies! It’s freaking amazing. I have heard the book is super awesome too. I saw THG for the second time last night and loved it just as much as the first time. I swear when it come out on BluRay I am going to watch it over and over lol!!

  15. Kristin

    Um, hate to break this to ya but I got winter over here right now coming at ‘cha (Detroit). Sorry, dear!!!

    And I totally agree with you on HG!!! But did you cry as much as you did for the book?? I didn’t. I just wasn’t as moved as I was for the book ~ maybe I expected too much? My prozac was too strong, who knows!

    Dark Kiss sounds great! I have some Michelle Rowen on TBR to read if I ever get there. And of course, Immortal Rules, niiiiiiice!

    Have a great week! My IMM

    Ahhhh! I Hunt Killers is going to be mad awesome, I bet. My sister won it at a book signing we went to (the store gives away ARCs to attendees as prizes) I am going to have to beg it off her.

    Happy reading Giselle!

    I can’t wait to visit Canada! One of my boyfriend’s business contacts is in Canada and they want us to visit, so maybe we’ll be there sometime soon! Spring is in full-bloom here, too. I love it 🙂

    Great mailbox, as always, this week! The Immortal Rules looks/sounds really great. Definitely on my TBR List.

    And, of course, you have a book by Rhiannon Frater! 😉 You’re gonna have a restraining order on Twitter soon, haha! Juuuust kidding 🙂

    Hope you enjoy all your lovelies this week! <3

    Awesome books this week! I Hunt Killers was amazingly good. I hope you enjoy it just as much. Yay Rhiannon Frater! I’m curious to hear what you think! Perhaps I will pick up more of her stuff! I’m still craving more of the ATWD characters, and her writing style 🙁

    Happy reading 🙂

    THE IMMORTAL RULES! 😀 Haha, I think that’s in everyone’s mailbox this week; it was just impossible not to request. And Dark Kiss! I actually had not heard of that one before I saw it in all these IMMs, but the cover is gorgeous, so if people enjoy it, I may have to request it.

    Also, you’re really tempting me to check out any of Rhiannon Frater’s books that are published in hardback or paperback. I don’t think I’ve seen you so in love with an author ever before, so that alone makes me want to read them.

    I hope you enjoy all of these! 😀

    OMG! I’m so jealous!! I tell ya!! You got both The Immortal Rules and Pretty When She Dies in Paperback!!! I have the kindle edition of Pretty When She Dies but that doesn’t beat that gorgeous paperback.

    I really like the cover for The Immortal Rules. I keep debating with myself as to whether I should request it at NetGalley.
