In My Mailbox #74

Saturday, March 23, 2013 with 11 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.

How is it that on the first official day of spring, the weather decided to take a nose-dive?  Now it's yucky and gross and cold again (well, for Texas).  Guess you know what I'll be doing all weekend!  Especially with all these new goodies!  =)

physical copies - look at all the shiny!
Thin SpaceThe Bitter Kingdom (Fire and Thorns, #3)Not a Drop to Drink
The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy, #1)The Chaos of StarsSome Quiet Place

Look at all of those awesome covers!!!!

For Review:

Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting - look for my review & a giveway as part of the Dead Silence Blog Tour on April 4th!
Loki's Wolves by Kelly Armstrong & Melissa Marr - sounds like a fun middle-grade novel, plus Norse mythology, yay!
Thin Space by Jody Casella - righting the wrongs of the living...and the dead...color me intrigued
The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson - this should need no explanation as it is one of my favorite fantasy series ever.  HECTOR!!!
Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis - this one sounds eerie but also a bit like times before the country was settled & I'm really looking forward to it, plus the cover gave me a Wizard of Oz vibe, so you know I'm all over that.  :)
The Burning Sky by Shelly Thomas - MAGIC!!!  Yes, please!
The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White - I have been suckered by the cover.  This is White's last chance to impress me.  Shouldn't be too hard with Egyptian mythology, but that's what I thought about sister assassins, too.
Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton - such a pretty cover and emotions manifested as people?  Sounds awesome!

Thanks to Simon & Schuster, Little, Brown, HarperCollins, Flux, Edelweiss & Netgalley for the review copies!


Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare - audio & hardcover -- WHAT?  I needed to see that family tree for myself!  But I just couldn't wait to start so I got the audio, too.  :P
Requiem by Lauren Oliver - Now I can read that Alex chapter!!!
With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent - Time to say goodbye to yet another group of characters I've grown to love over the years.  Even Sabine and Sophie.  =)

So, that's my haul.  What did you get this week?

The Week in Review:

Reviews:  Flirting With Maybe, Also Known As, Impostor & That Time I Joined the Circus

Current Giveaways:  A is for Audiobook & Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop

Blog Tours/Promotions:  cover re-reveal for the Night Creatures series

I'll be seeing The Host with my sister on Friday before I head out of town to see the other sister in Austin, so look for my review of the movie soon.  I loved Saoirse in Hanna, so I have some pretty high expectations for this adaptation.  ;0)

I'm also participating in the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop, so stay tuned for that.


  1. Great haul this week!! I am still waiting for approval from Harper for those books!

  2. Oh my god you've got Loki's Wolves! So curious about that one, I love Melissa's writing! I got Some Quiet Place too - it sounds so awesome!
    My preorder for CP2 has only just been sent out by amazon yesterday *sigh* I hope it's at least really the collector's edition! I shouldn't preorder with them anymore. I never get the books right when they come out anyway. God I can't WAIT to finally hold that book in my hands, even though I know it will emotionally ruin me :P
    Same is probably true for With All My Soul! I won one of the preorders in Fiktshun's mini-challenge giveaway and I'm now waiting for that to arrive. And I actually grew to like Sabine a lot, by the way ;)

    Lots of great books expecting you! Enjoy them :)
    My haul

  3. The Bitter Kingdom - really!?! Loved the first two books! My current favorites, if one can really have favorites when it comes to books. Awesome you have the third. I hope it rocks. Look like you have some other really good ones, too. The Burning Sky, just can't get over how much I love that cover.

  4. hahaha I keep hearing about this Infernal Devices family tree... I'm going to have to go to the bookstore just to check it out or something. I listened to it on audio and it was FANTASTIC. Finished it last night, made me want to re-read the series immediately. :) I have a copy of Loki's Wolves and I'm really looking forward to it. Not a Drop to Drink sounds so good, I need to get my hands on this one! Happy Reading!

  5. Clockwork Princess! <33 The Burning Sky sounds really good. It's been awhile since I've read high fantasy. I would like to read Alex's pov in Requiem too. I think I may need to pick up a copy sometime. I hope you enjoy these!

    My Book Haul

  6. All right, hurry up and read Loki's Wolves and tell me if I should request it or not.
    And thanks for the heads up on the Rae Carson and Kiersten White on EW -- crossing my fingers!
