In My Mailbox #92

Saturday, July 27, 2013 with 13 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.






I need summer to last a couple months longer -- I mean the time between school years, not just the season.  (We pretty much have six months -- at least -- of summer here in North Texas.)  So I can take another vacation.  So I can get more books read.  And so I can stop freaking out about my baby starting kindergarten at the end of August.  I'm just not ready!


For Review:

Keeping Her (Losing It, #1.5)ConjuredWhite Space (Dark Passages, #1)The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark #1)

Keeping Her by Cora Carmack - Love this series!  I've already read this novella and I shall be reviewing it on Short Story Sunday this week.  :D

Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst - Amnesia?  Magic-wielding serial killer?  I am all over this one!

White Space by Ilsa J. Bick - The Matrix meets Inkheart? That. Sounds. AMAZING! I love her Ashes trilogy -- I'll be reading the final book in that series VERY soon -- and can't wait to see what she does with this new series!

The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain - I'm gonna be honest...this will be my first Bree Despain book. But I love the Persephone myth, so I couldn't pass it up. :)

Purchased/Audiobooks:

Proxy (Proxy, #1)

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





The Week in Review:

Reviews:

Current Giveaways:  The Summer of Love Giveaway Hop

Promotional/Discussion Posts:  SYNC's 2013 Week 9 offerings are up for download, with Grave Mercy and Hamlet up for grabs this week -- FOR FREE!  The Truth AND Dare Blog Tour hosted by Paper Lantern Lit has kicked off.  And I helped reveal the cover for Secret, the fourth book in Brigid Kemmerer's Elementals series!  Also, I teased Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and waited on Evertrue.

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

The Scorpio RacesShadowsDude. I wasn't supposed to read this yet. But it had been calling to me ever since I discussed it with my friend Lauren, and I couldn't say no any longer. Plus, I've been wanting to do a re-read of Angelfall which I don't have time for. And I've heard this is an angel book on the same level as that one.  And so far, IT IS. Very readable. Very.

I was having trouble deciding on my next listen -- too many choices -- so I decided to re-listen to an old favorite.  Check out my review to see why I love it so.


The Week Ahead:

  11. The jump to kindergarten is so scary at first! *holds hand* It gets better. I think I was more freaked out for the anticipation of the first day.

    I can't wait to hear what you think about Proxy!
