In My Mailbox #101

Saturday, September 28, 2013 with 18 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 still haven't gotten around to reorganizing my bookshelves, and I've taken in a lot of new books lately, so I think it's time.  It's supposed to be pretty nice with a few showers sprinkled in here this weekend, so I think I'll open the windows and welcome the fall weather into my library/office.  =)  I'll also be putting out the fall decorations (finally) and hopefully I'll get to Katie's bookshelf and doing a little cleaning up there, as well.  They start their reading program at school this coming week, so it seems like the perfect time.

For Review:

Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3)Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)

Thank you, Harlequin Teen & Netgalley!!!

Crash into You by Katie McGarry
Pawn by Aimee Carter


Untold by Sarah Rees-Brennan
Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young
Shadows by Paula Weston - I've already read this, but I loved it so much I had to buy a finished copy (review)

If I Stay (If I Stay #1)Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Where She Went by Gayle Forman

I caved and bought these audiobooks.  They're relatively short, but I've heard amazing things about this author and this series, plus the first book is being adapted for film, so I have to read/listen to it before then.  :D


And these are all of my now signed and/or Maggie-doodled books, after the signing on Wednesday.  She had a ton to autograph and yet she still took the time to doodle a horse in my HC of The Scorpio Races.  =) (I'm sure she did that for everyone who had a copy of the book, but still...awfully nice of her.)

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

The Week in Review:


Current Giveaways:  Banned Books Week Hop (ends TONIGHT!) and SIGNED copy of The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Promotional/Discussion Posts:  Banned Books Week, The Great Goodreads Debate & the Maggie Stiefvater signing at Half Price Books

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

If I Stay (If I Stay #1)Never Fade (The Darkest Minds, #2)Finishing up Never Fade and For Darkness Shows the Stars, both of which are awesome.  Then I think I'm going to start Fractured by Sarah Fine.  Maybe.  It depends on what I'm in the mood for then, I guess.  :D

I'm pretty excited to start this series.  I went ahead and bought both books on audio, just because I know I'm going to love it.  It'll probably be the same with her other series when I get to it.  :)

The Week Ahead:

Reviews:   Never Fade and For Darkness Shows the Stars...and probably If I Stay and Where She Went.  Also, I'm really going to try to get my reviews for Haze and World After written this weekend, especially since the friend who let me borrow Haze really wants to borrow my ARC of World After.  :) Though, the review for World After won't post until closer to the pub date, at the publisher's request.  Sorry!

Ends tonight!!!

  1. Ooohhh I really want Pawn! I also got Crash into You! Very excited to start it. Really want Just Like Fate. I LOVED If I Stay and Where She Went. Balled my eyes out during the second one but many say they cried more during the first one LOL I read them back to back so I think I just saved up my tears. The guy's perspective always gets to me though. Adam's love of Mia was just very tear inducing! I have a Maggie Stiefvater signing near me very soon. I am hoping to attend although there are a ton of great signings near me in the next couple weeks and I don't know if I can make them all. Trying to!

  2. I was SO MAD when they changed the Unspoken and Untold covers! Even though I didn't really like the first one, I thought the cover was absolutely beautiful and now it just looks generic. :(

  3. CRASH INTO YOU & PAWN. I neeeeeed....NEEED <3 Amazing haul girl!! Enjoy all the awesome books :D
    Happy reading

  4. So many great signed books! Woo! I'm always jealous of your hauls, Jen :)

  5. Ack, you got Crash Into You! And that Maggie Stiefvater's book stack is just amazing. Hope you'll love them all and happy reading!

  14. Very nice haul, I just got Pawn too and can't wait to read it. I loved Just Like Fate when I read it a few weeks ago and need to pick up a copy of Untold soon!

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading :)

  15. Ooo, nice haul! I have Pawn too! Excited to read it. I finally got the e-arc to World After. I'm 15% in and I just have to try to read it slow. I need to stretch out the joy of reading it and not gobble it up in one sitting then cry because the wait is so long for the next.
