In My Mailbox #75

Saturday, March 30, 2013 with 8 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 visiting my sis in Austin, so I'll be slow to respond to comments this weekend -- not like that's unusual or anything, ha!  The weather should be great, though, so we plan to get out and do some hiking and exploring.  Should be a ton of fun!  I hope you all got lots of reading goodies this week!  Have a great weekend!   =)

For Review:

I don't think I requested a single thing for review this week, and the books I've recently requested haven't arrived yet.  I'm trying to be better.  :)


Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)This Is What Happy Looks LikeThis is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith - I almost cracked this book open as soon as it arrived yesterday, but I'd already planned to start another that I've been itching to get to, so this cutie will have to wait.  But isn't that cover freakin' adorable?

Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I've already read this one, but I want to finally get around to finishing the series, so I'm doing a refresher of this one with the audio.  I've been told it's intense but good.  We shall see.

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

The Week in Review:

Reviews:  Undone, Easy (audio), Clockwork Princess (audio), With All My Soul & The Assassin's Curse (audio)

Current Giveaways:  A is for Audiobook - ends tomorrow!!!

Currently Reading:


I've been itching to start this one for awhile.  I can already tell it's going to be hard to put down.  =)  I'm not very far into the book yet, and I've already been pretty creeped out, resulting in some intense nightmares.  In other words, I'm loving it!  :P

Currently Listening:

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)

Like I said, refreshing my memory with this one so I can move on to Fire.  I own the physical copies of all of them, but as you can see, I still haven't gotten to them yet, so I'm trying out the audio.

The Week Ahead:

The Collector Blog TourReviews of The Witch's Betrayal (SSS), Dead Silence & The Collector:  A Dante Walker Novel

Blog Tours:  Dead Silence on 4/4 & The Collector on 4/5

Dead Silence Blog Tour

The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)
And I'll be attending the signing next Saturday for Victoria Scott's The Collector.  And I might just grab an extra copy to give away here!  =D

I'm also participating in the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop.  My giveaway will go up tomorrow.

Also, I'm one of the Elementals Virgins on the Spirit Blog Tour hosted by The Midnight Garden!  You can read more about it over there, but check back soon for details on the read along I'm co-hosting with Steph from Cuddlebuggery!


  1. I also had a two-book-haul this week! I still haven't read Graceling, but at least I gave my German copy away which makes the event of me buying the English one and reading it more likely ;) I keep hearing how awesome it is!
    This is what Happy Looks Like sounds interesting but for me it would all depend on how it's done - looking forward to your assessment!
    Happy Easter, and enjoy your books :)

  2. I have This Is What Happy Looks Like pre-ordered and can't wait till it arrives. I've heard so many good things about Graceling but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Enjoy everything!

  3. You did do good this week! I got Graceling from the e-library and I can't wait to get to it. Everyone loves Cashore. I hope you enjoy them!

  4. TIWHLL does have a beautiful cover. I liked it, but not as much as Statistical Probability. Have a great weekend!

  5. I got This is What Happy Looks Like too! I am so happy when it arrived early, though I won't get to read it for a few weeks. LOVE Graceling! I still need to read Bitterblue but Fire was good too. Graceling is my favorite though. :)

    My haul

  6. My sister said Arclight was GREAT. And I have This Is What Happy Looks Like coming to me...hopefully soon :) I won a preorder in a giveaway and can't wait to get started!
