In My Mailbox #25

Saturday, March 31, 2012 with 18 comments


In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It's a weekly meme where we all get to brag about the books and swag we got in the mail, for review, won in contests, etc.




For Review:

Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen from HarlequinTeen
Destined (Wings #4) by Aprilynne Pike from Harper Teen


Won:

On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves from April at Sim~Sational~Books (actually won this a couple of weeks ago but finally checked my email and got around to downloading it :P)
Cloaked by Alex Flinn from a HarperTeen Twitter giveaway


Purchased:

Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins


So, so, so excited to read both Destined and Spell Bound.  Both are the conclusions of two series that I've adored.  Haven't heard much buzz on Destined yet, but I've read some very mixed reviews of Spell Bound.  I'm crossing my fingers that I'm not disappointed.  If you've read any of these, what did you think?

As always, share the goodies you found in your mailbox this week in the comments below.  I can't wait to be jealous of your haul!  :D

  1. Ooo, I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of DARK KISS! I'm trying to be better about not greedily snapping up everything on NetGalley, but that one was awfully tempting. Will stay tuned for your review. :)

    I was one of those "mixed" SPELLBOUND reviews, hah. I will not say another word until you've read it, Jeannette. But do hurry up. :D

    1. I think I'm going to start it tonight. That or Destined. Either way, I think I'll wait till the end of the week to read I Hunt Killers. Just finished an awesome murder-mystery that had some The DaVinci Code-like elements to it, and I think I need to write the review for that one before delving into something similar. But I'll hurry on Spell Bound so we can discuss. :)

    1. I read Beastly, and I wasn't all that thrilled with it, but I read an excerpt for Cloaked awhile back, and it sounded a little better. :) EVERYONE loved On the Island...I'll have to get to that one soon. :D

    1. Me either! How can it be the end?!? And you should definitely read Hex Hall, if only for Sophie's snarkiness. :P

    1. It's great, isn't it? I just love how different the faerie lore is in it. I mean flowers instead of wings? Very cool. :)
