In My Mailbox #65

Saturday, January 19, 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.

Woohoo!  Three-day weekend!!!  More time to read!  And the weather here in North Texas is supposed to be pretty nice, low- to mid-60s.  I intend to get out on my patio at some point with a good book.  =)

For Review:

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers - I loveloveloved Grave Mercy when I read it as an ARC last year and although I'd like to continue Ismae's story, I'm also very excited to read Sybella's.  I almost dropped everything else to read this when it first arrived.

Boundless by Cynthia Hand - I did drop everything to read Boundless when it showed up in my mailbox.  It might possibly have been the finale I was most anxiously anticipating in 2013.  Find my spoiler-free review here, and stop back by on the 24th for my stop on the Boundless Blog Tour!

Altered by Jennifer Rush - I've been waiting (not so) patiently for my turn on the DAC ARC Tour, while all my friends have read (and loved) Altered.  It's finally here, and I can't wait to love it, too!

And I got my signed Through the Ever Night bookplate and bookmark plus an awesome temporary tattoo from the amazing Veronica Rossi!

Huge thanks to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, HarperTeen, DAC ARC Tours & Veronica Rossi for these awesome, awesome books and swag!!!

You guys!  I walked into a bookstore yesterday and didn't buy a single thing!  But that's probably because it was B&N and I know I can get everything cheaper online.  =)  I'm serious, though...those gift cards aren't going to last much longer.   :P
