In My Mailbox #62

Saturday, December 29, 2012 with 1 comment



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.





Involuntary blog hiatus means nothing I said I'd do last week got done, which means it'll be incorporated into this week's schedule.  Hopefully.  Anyway, here's what I received this week:

For Review:





The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd - After being approved on Edelweiss, I also received an ARC from the publisher.  And the cover is even more awesome in person!!!  Squeeeeeee!!!!







Vortex by Julie Cross - Tempest, the first novel in this time-travel series was well-received, though it wasn't my personal favorite book dealing with this subject matter.  I'm still very curious to see how things turn out for Jackson after the life-altering (ha!) events of the first book.  Also, this is an audiobook for review...yay!







The Rules by Stacey Kade - Huh. I didn't realize until just now that this book is by the author of The Ghost and the Goth series. I didn't read those, but I want to.  I guess we'll see how The Rules goes first, though.  I do find genetics fascinating, though...







Big, big thanks to HarperTeen, Macmillan Audio, Disney Hyperion, and Netgalley!!!


Purchased:





Annabel by Lauren Oliver - Okay, so I hated the Hana novella, but as I prepare myself for Requiem and the end to the Delirium trilogy, I just have to read this one.  Okay, actually, I just really, really dislike Hana.








Neverfall by Brodi Ashton - I am sososo stoked to read Everbound now that I have the ARC in my possession and a willing buddy to read along with me, but I have to read this short from Cole's POV.  (Okay, Em, if you're reading this, I actually already read it and am waiting for you so we can read Everbound.  So hurry!  :D)






So, that's my haul for Christmas week.  Besides a few gift cards, that is, and those will be put to good use in the very near future.  Teehee.  Teehee.  >:0)
