In My Mailbox #99

Saturday, September 14, 2013 with 15 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 think the temperatures are supposed to be in the lower 90s this weekend where I'm at, and for this Texas girl, that's tolerable for outdoor reading.  =)  And I have a ton of reading to catch up on, so that's where I'll be.  Away from the distraction that is the interwebz.  Hopefully.  Okay, I'll try.  :D

For Review:

First, the one that induced all the flailing:

Thankyouthankyouthankyou to Skyscape/Amazon Children's Publishing for the ARC of World After by Susan Ee, the long, long, looooong-awaited sequel to Angelfall.  I am probably reading this right this second.  Or, I've already finished and I'm going through withdrawals.  Hard to say.

Made of StarsAlienated (Alienated, #1)

Thanks to Netgalley, Entangled Teen & Disney Hyperion for these review copies:

Made of Stars by Kelley York - I just love untrustworthy characters.  It'd be even better if he was the narrator!  :)  Can't wait to read this!

Alienated by Melissa Landers - An alien foreign exchange program?  That sounds like it could either be beneficial or completely calamitous.  :P


Thanks to Paper Lantern Lit for the finished copy of Eternity by Elizabeth Miles.  I'm not caught up on this series, so I may end up giving this one away so someone else can enjoy it sooner rather than later.  IOW, look for it in a So Many Books So Little Time Giveaway soon.  =)

Thanks also to Cynthia Hand for the generous foreign edition giveaway she did recently, in which I received the Australian audiobook version of Boundless.  I've already read this, but I can't wait to experience that ending all over again.

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

The Week in Review:


Current Giveaways:  Win a mystery box of books in the So Many Books So Little Time Giveaway!

Promotional/Discussion Posts:  I shared a weird reading spot with you guys on The Sunday Symposium. On Monday, I shared an excerpt and the teaser trailer for Marie Lu's Champion. I teased Once We Were by Kat Zhang on Tuesday.  And I'm waiting on Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor this week...the wait is already torturous and the cover was only just revealed!  On Wednesday, I also helped reveal the first official excerpt for Victoria Scott's Fire & Flood.  Plus, we discussed re-rating books on this week's Thoughtful Thursday, and I also shared the cover for K.A. Tucker's Four Seconds to Lose.

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

Once We Were (The Hybrid Chronicles, #2)The Waking DarkLove the covers for this series.  So far, I'm enjoying this one as much as the first, and I should have my review up early next week in time for the book's release.

I loved Wasserman's The Book of Blood and Shadow. I've heard that this book is pretty brutal, and so far, it's living up to it's reputation.  So good.

The Week Ahead:

Reviews:   MonstersThe Waking Dark (audio) & Once We Were

    Alienated looks really great as well! Unfortunately for me, Hyperion doesn't accept requests from non-US bloggers so I didn't even try *sigh*
    Enjoy them all, Jen!
