In My Mailbox (28)

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 

Hi ladies and gents! I just got back from my second viewing of the Hunger Games and it was just as amazing, and now I’m in a super mood! πŸ˜€ So what happened this week? I had the blog tour for Someone Else’s Life drop by for my review and a really fun interview here. I also received two copies of The Calling as you can see below, so I’m hosting a giveaway for the 2nd copy : enter here.

This week, I got for review (click on cover or title link for Goodreads):

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong (Giveaway for the 2nd copy HERE.)
*BIG Thank You to Random House Canada, Random House Children’s Books, St. Martin’s Press, Spencer Hill Press, Rhiannon Frater, Entangled Publishing and HarperCollins for these wonderful review copies!*
Also, I bought:
Tada!! More Rhiannon Frater! Would you believe!? (There’s one above too) BlookGirl Katie Someone I won’t name called me a groupie, which is totally false *takes out stalker binoculars*, she’s just jealous of my reading of awesomeness and book pimp abilities!
Week of insanity!
Β What’s in your haul, lovelies?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Have I mentioned lately how much I <3 your face?! You may be a stalker groupie, but you're still pretty amazing πŸ˜‰

    Nice haul this week, Giselle! I am SO insanely jealous that you received Masque of the Red Death! I really hope you enjoy it, and I can’t wait to see what you think πŸ™‚ I saw Velveteen on NetGalley but wasn’t sure if it was my kind of read. Maybe I’ll reconsider once I read your future review.

    Hope you enjoy all your lovelies! <333 ::leaves pepper spray for Rhiannon::

    Very nice! Glad to see this week was so good to you. πŸ™‚ I really want to read Flirting In Italian and Masque of the Red Death. I also need to get going on the Trylle books. I have the first two sitting here and haven’t had a chance to get to them yet.

    Anyway, I hope the new week is just as great. πŸ™‚ Happy reading!

  3. Tiffany

    Flutter is so good, I absolutely loved it! Something Strange and Deadly sounds so good. I got Velveteen this week as well. Enjoy your books πŸ™‚

  4. Heidi

    So many good books! I just started The Book of Blood and Shadow this evening and so far it is freaking awesome. Enjoy your haul, excited to hear your thoughts on a lot of these!

  5. Bekka

    What an awesome haul! I requested Unspoken so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I can’t wait for Something Strange and Deadly to come out. I recently read Masque of the Red Death, and thought it was interesting. I think Poe fans will appreciate it.

    Something Strange and Deadly and Velveteen could be cousins XD I LOVE YOUR BOOKS. Some are like married men and others are quite available and are within reach. DON’T YOU JUST WISH WE HAD MORE EYES? I wish I could read more books in a day.


    Have an amazing reading week!

    Wow you got a lot of great books! I NEED to get Untouched! I love Kale! I am really hoping I get approved for Velveteen, he is a local author and I have already met him a few times and he is really fun and nice.

    Happy reading

  9. Jac

    Flirting in Italian? Velveteen? *Faints* It seems like everyone had a great week, but Giselle? I think you take the cake today! Geez, I’m jealous.

    Come see what I got In My Mailbox this week!

  10. Angie @ Beneath the Jacket

    WOOT! FANTASTIC mailbox! I’d marry it if I could. Masque of the Red Death, Velveteen, Drain You, Unraveling, etc. So many I want to read!! We have most of these at my work and I don’t know what to pick up next! Hopefully your reviews will make that decision for me! OMG SO MUCH PRESSURE ON YOU! ;D

  11. Danny

    Haha Do you have an idea where to start? Those books look awesome! I still have to catch up with the Tylle series!

    I’m just reading Unraveling right now and it’s awesome! I’m not sure about flutter so I’m looking forward seeing your thoughts about that one!

  12. Renae McKenzie

    You have Untouched! Why must you have it and I not??!! xD Needless to say I am jealous that you have Untouched. I just finished reading Touch and I cannot wait to see what happens next!

    Everyone seems to be getting a copy of Masque of the Red Death but me! Gah, I am dying to read it!

    I really hope that you enjoy all the wonderful book that you got this week!

    Wanna check out my IMM?

  13. Miri

    Woooow, looks like you got lots of awesome books this week! I have to say that not only the story of Unspoken seems to be amazing, but I really like the cover of it. And the cover of Drain You looks very cute, too.

    Hope you’re going to enjoy all your new books. You can find my IMM for this week over here.

    Have a wonderful Sunday! πŸ™‚

    Unspoken sounds so good! But I think I have too much in my tbr pile already to really be able to justify requesting it. I’m part way through reading The Book Of Blood And Shadow at the moment and I love it, but that’s the 2nd time today I’ve seen it with this cover, and have to say, I really don’t like that one. It just makes it look kind of boring I think, especially compared to the cover on the UK one!
    Is The Calling part of a series? I’ve only read a couple of Kelly Armstrong books, but I really enjoyed them – her ‘Women Of The Otherworld’ series is one I need to come back to sometime.

    Oh, you are going to love Something Strange and Deadly (I had the amazing opportunity to read it a week ago). And I’m pretty excited to read Masque of the Red Death and Unraveling. Both look pretty awesome.

    What an awesome haul again! So many amazing titles, I don’t even know where to start…first of all “whoop whoop” (is that even a sound?) for all your Rhiannon Frater books! I am really dying to read Velveteen! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Happy reading chicky!

    Yaaay, you finally got Unraveling! *cries* Of course, you also got a million other great books so I’ll just sit here and hope that you’ll get to it soon. πŸ™‚
    I’m totally jealous of you for getting all these amazing books, and who can blame me?! πŸ™‚
