In My Mailbox #112

Saturday, December 14, 2013 with 9 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'm out and about today, fighting the crowds while I try to finish up my Christmas shopping.  Boo!  But we took Katie to see Frozen last night, and it was sooo cute.  Put me in the holiday spirit, anyway, along with my re-listen of Dash & Lily's Book of Dares.  Love that one.  =)

Anyway, here's what I scored this week:


For Review:

#scandalDon't Even Think About ItPoison Dance: A Novella
Thank you, Simon Pulse, Random House & Livia Blackburne!!!
(click on the covers above to be taken to the Goodreads page for each book)

#scandal by Sarah Ockler - I love Sarah Ockler.  I can't not read this one.
Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski - This will be my first book by this author but it sounds like a light and fun take on a superpower I'd love to have!
Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne - The author offered me a review copy of this novella after I added her full-length novel to my TBR on Goodreads.  If you're interested, it's on sale for $0.99 through tomorrow!  I'll be reviewing it tomorrow, but suffice it to say, I am very intrigued by the story and can't wait to get my hands on Midnight Thief!

Audiobooks:

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-BanksWorld After (Penryn & the End of Days, #2)Scarlet (Scarlet #1)


Don't look at me like that...Audible was having another sale, and I was getting low on listens.  And I know I already have two physical copies of World After, but with this sale, the audio only ran me like $5.45.  And I liked Caitlin Davies' performance of the first book, so I know this will be good.  Also, I miss Raffe already.


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




The Week in Review:

Reviews:

Current Giveaways:  Best of 2013 Giveaway - International

Promotional/Discussion Posts:  The Obligation to Read

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

Bright Before SunriseVampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)This isn't technically next on the list, but it is on my winter TBR, and I felt like reading a contemporary before jumping into another fantasy or sci-fi due to the book hangover I'm suffering from after The Unbound.






After finishing The Fiery Heart, I needed more, so I've been re-listening to the audio for the Vampire Academy series.  I'm on Spirit Bound right now.  “I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.” *sigh*



Upcoming Reviews:

Poison Dance: A NovellaUnhinged (Splintered, #2)The Unbound (The Archived, #2)

  5. I read one book by Sarah Mlynowski and was ehh, but this one sounds really good! I'm nervous about this new Ockler book because I'm not a fan of cheating, but I'm getting a copy from the author so no harm, right? I can't wait to see what you think about those two. And SCARLET! I just finished that one and loved it. I'm looking forward to seeing how you like the narrator. Great haul, Jen ;)

And I haven't heard of any of those you got for review before o.O Poison Dance sounds right up my alley though because assassins :D Definitely marking that upcoming series down as a must-read! Thanks for making me aware of it, and happy reading :)

  8. I'm so excited to read #scandal and Don't Even Think About It. I love Sarah Mylnowski. She was one of the Red Dress Ink authors before that publisher kicked the bucket and I loved all of her cute chick-lit books. Have you not read Frankie yet, or are you just re-listening? That is one of my all-time favorites. If it is your first time reading, I cannot wait to hear what you think!!
