In My Mailbox #109

Saturday, November 23, 2013 with 14 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 didn't get a whole lot of reading done last weekend, but I'm making up for it now  :)  Here's what I scored this week:


For Review:

What Does the Fox Say?

Yes, I requested this.  Yes, I am aware that it is just the lyrics to the song with some really awesome illustrations.  But I wanted to review it before I purchase it for my daughter.  Especially knowing that once I do, I'll have to read it to her at bedtime for many, many nights.  =)  We've already read it and watched the video about ten times since I got this.  :D



Thank you, Megan Miranda, ATW ARC Tours & Tor/Forge!!!

Vengeance by Megan Miranda - OMG!!!!!!!!  I received a signed copy from the author!  I will be reading this very, very soon.

Plus One by Elizabeth Fama - I've already finished this one, and it. Is. Phenomenal.  A must-read!

Revelations by J.A. Souders - I received a finished copy from the publisher, but I haven't even read the first book -- which I also own -- so I don't know when I'll get to this.

Audiobooks:

The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines, #4)

The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead - Already listened and loved it.  Dying for the next book now.


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




The Week in Review:

Reviews:

Current Giveaways:  signed ARC of Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott

Promotional/Discussion Posts:  Exclusive bonus scene from Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

Defy (Defy, #1) Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)I needed a fantasy fix, so I'm digging into my January ARCs.  =)  Shhh!!!  Just starting this one, but I have high hopes.  Kinda worried about the love triangle, but for some reason, I tend not to mind those as much in fantasy novels.  *shrugs*






After finishing The Fiery Heart, I needed more, so I've been re-listening to the audio for the Vampire Academy series.  I'm on Shadow Kiss right now.  Dimitri...*sigh*



Upcoming Reviews:


BlythewoodThe Promise of Amazing

  10. I'm with you Jen! Love triangle in fantasy is so not as bad. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Defy--I'm pretty curious about reading it and have requested it (fingers crossed). Great haul and happy reading.
