In My Mailbox #58

Saturday, December 1, 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.

I missed last week's post because of back problems, so this is a recap of two week's worth of books...

For Review:

Taken by Erin Bowman - Boys being mysteriously taken at midnight on their eighteenth birthday.  I'm all kinds of curious as to why.  Plus, it sounds like it's written from a male POV, which I love.

Thanks to HarperTeen & Edelweiss.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken - All I needed to hear was "frightening abilities" to know I wanted to read this book.  Plus, everyone I know has really enjoyed it.

Thanks to Disney Hyperion & Netgalley.

Poison by Bridget Zinn - POISON!  Traveling with her ex-boyfriend and a too-cute pig?  Sounds like fun times.  Can't wait to get started on this one!

Thanks to Disney Hyperion & Netgalley.

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark - I'd seen a lot of positive feedback from friends who've read this one, so I decided to check it out myself.  Not YA but not far from my usual read, so I'm game.  =)

Thanks to Random House & Netgalley.

Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis - I'm all about quirky little love stories these days, and this one sounds super fun!  And it's set in the 70s!!!

Thanks to Random House & Netgalley.


From the awesome Emily at Ed and Em's Reviews, I won signed finished copies of:

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo [my review]
Crewel by Gennifer Albin [my review]
The Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski
Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien

Promised by Caragh M. O'Brien

Now, that's what I call a good week...or two.  =)
