In My Mailbox #47

Saturday, September 8, 2012 with 12 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.

Trying to do that whole "cutting back" thing again, so not a lot to show this week.  But I'm still excited about what I did get.  I also got some super sekkrit goodies for giveaways, but I'm going to keep those super sekkrit until the right time.  >:0)

For Review:

The Torn Wing by Kiki Hamilton, won from author
Chasing the Skip by Janci Patterson, ARC provided by HMH Kids
Winter White by Jen Calonita, courtesy of Southern Book Blogger ARC Tours

Feel free to share your haul in the comments so I can drool and dream about them.  =P

The Week in Review:

Reviews:  Outpost and What's Left of Me, both of which I loved

We discussed cover redesigns for the first Sunday Symposium post.  Stop by and leave your thoughts for a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card.

Speaking of giveaways, the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop has ended and the winner of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is:  April from Sim~Sational~Books!!!  Congrats, April!!!  :D

You still have until Sunday at midnight to tell Cynthia Hand why she's a Rockstar Author and enter to win a signed copy of Hallowed or Unearthly series bookmarks and bookplates!

I also shared a clip from the Monstrous Beauty audiobook, courtesy of Macmillan Audio.

The Week Ahead:

The second post in my new Sunday Symposium series - a new feature in which I'll be discussing various bookish topics and asking for your commentary, as well.

I'll be reviewing some of my recent audiobook listens in preparation for upcoming sequels: The Girl of Fire and Thorns and Cinder, for starters.

Also, I hope you'll stop by and enter to win an EPIC prize pack (well, I think it's epic, anyway :D) on my stop of the Books to Movies Giveaway Hop, which starts early next week.

  3. Great books this week. Chasing The Skip looks super cute! And I love the cover for Winter White. Happy reading!

    1. I love the covers for the Belles series, too! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Yay for Winter White!! I can't wait to see what you think. Enjoy the books, Jen!

    1. Thanks, Andrea. I listened to the audio for Belles, so it's a bit different having to supply the Southern accent myself. :P
