In My Mailbox #68

Saturday, February 9, 2013 with 22 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.





Um, I was better this week?  Okay, not really, but I put those Xmas gift cards to good use!  =P

For Review:




Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead - Um, it's Richelle Mead.  My reasons for requesting this bad boy are pretty self-explanatory.  =)




Huge thanks to Dutton & Edelweiss for the awesome, awesome book review copy!!!

Purchased:

Audio --

Article 5 (Article 5, #1)Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)Amy and Roger's Epic Detour



Hardcovers --

Asunder (Newsoul, #2)Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)City of a Thousand DollsThrough the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2)







I also gifted the audio for Pandemonium to my younger sis because I  kind of forced the first book on her, and she absolutely loved it.  But I only had the audio for Delirium and I couldn't just leave her hanging like that.  =D





Yes, I did purchase both the audio and hardcover of Unravel Me.  I had to have the beautimous finished copy for my shelf, but I also knew I wouldn't be able to get to it in the near future, hence the audio.  No judging!





The Week in Review:

Reviews:  Wings of Tavea, Splintered (audio), & Pivot Point

Current Giveaways:  Wings of TaveaFollower Love Giveaway Hop, Romance is in the Air Giveaway Hop, The Goddess Test series

Blog Tours/Promotions:  Wings of Tavea Blog Tour, What's Divine About The Goddess Test Series

  2. City of a Thousand Dolls are on my To Read list. So is Unravel Me and a lot of other books you have up there. Unfortunately I have no idea when or if they are going to be released in Australia :( I hope you enjoy them!

  5. Eeep, so many awesome books! I got to meet the author of Scarlet last night, and so I bought a copy of Scarlet to get it signed. So I'm really psyched to start it! I hope that you enjoy it in audio, which reminds me that I absolutely need to try out an audiobook soon! I had Through the Ever Night on pre-order, so I pretty much devoured it the day it landed on my doorstep. It was fantastic, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as the first! I've also got Asunder sitting on my bookshelf, calling my name. After a re-read of Incarnate, I'll be picking that one up.

    Fantastic haul, enjoy all your lovely books! <3

    And I just requested Gameboard but Dutton is the only publisher that always rejects me on Edelweiss. So I may have to see what you think!

  15. I'm very curious about Gameboard. It's not a book that really appeals to me, but it is Mead, so I can't wait to see what you think. I've always meant to read Amy & Roger.
    Enjoy!

  16. Amy and Roger looks good. I'm a dedicated fan of Richelle Mead's, but I'll have to look at some reviews first. Enjoy!

  17. So many great books. i loved Amy and Roger's, hope you do too!

  18. Totally understandable that you needed a copy of Unravel Me for your shelf. I feel the same way. :) (And omg... Just saw the pic of your shelves in your other post... Could I BE any more jealous?!?!) I'm only about 15% into Unravel Me. I've been snowed in from the blizzard for days with very little time to listen to my audio, believe it or not. I mostly just listen in the car, not at home. My family would kill me if I sat here with headphones on ignoring them. I guess I can see their point. :P I have been reading Torched by Andrea Lynn Colt though. It's an indie contemporary story so maybe not your type? But it's so good!! I'm having trouble putting it down! Anyway, I digress. Enjoy your goodies!!! :D
