In My Mailbox #110

Saturday, November 30, 2013 with 9 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 hope you all had a lovely week and a Happy Thanksgiving for all those who celebrated!  I caught up on all of my shows last weekend, and the hubby's at the deer lease again this weekend, so I'm hoping to catch up on some reading and reviewing while he's gone.  Assuming Katiebug will let me.  She's been über cuddly lately, and I have a hard time saying no to her.  =)

Here's what I scored this week:

For Review:

Enders (Starters, #2)The Lovely and the LostShe Is Not Invisible
Thank you, Random House & Macmillan!!!

Enders by Lissa Price - Gah, I feel like I've been waiting on this book forever!  I finally have it and I can't wait to get started on it, though I might need to check out the audio of Starters as a refresher.  It has been awhile.

The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan - Eeek!  I just featured this as my WoW recently, and now the precious is MINE!  Another beautiful cover, more gargoyles...what more could you ask for?!?

She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick - This will be my first book by this author, but I've heard amazing things, so I'm really excited about picking this up.  I love that cover and the premise just sounds so damn different.


The Thief (The Queen's Thief, #1)The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Oz, #1)My Ex From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy, #1)My Date From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy, #2)

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner - This was a Kindle Daily Deal earlier this week.  Practically everyone I know loves MWT, but I've never read any of her work, so I thought what better time to try it out.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum - This movie is a beloved favorite in our house, but I've never actually read the book.  Audible was offering the audio up for free as a Thanksgiving gift for members, though, so I think it's finally time.  Also, Anne Hathaway is the narrator.  Should be a good one.  :)

My Ex From Hell & My Date From Hell by Tellulah Darling - My friends Em & Jenn from Book Jems rave about this author, and since My Date From Hell is currently on sale for Kindle for $0.99, I couldn't pass it up.  And since I haven't read the first book, I had to pick it up, too...for only $3.99.  :)  I loved the excerpt from MDFH, so I'm sure I'm going to love this book tons, just like the Jems girls.

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

Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:

Defy (Defy, #1) Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Still reading this one...the holidays have kept me from getting much reading done, but it's going quickly now that I'm back at it, and I'm enjoying it.

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*

  3. ! I didn't know that The Dispossessed is about gargoyles - that's so awesome!

    Enjoy :-D

  4. Awesome. Page Morgan is terrific. I loved the first book a lot. Come check out my haul as well.


  5. Enders looks really good. Love that cover.

    Enjoy all your books!

  6. She Is Not Invisible looks FANTASTIC! Oh, I can't wait to see how you like it :)

  7. She Is Not Invisible!! I'm not sure what the book is about, but the cover is fantastic! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!!

  8. YAYAYAYAYAYYY!!! I can't wait for you to read The Thief and meet my darling Gen! But you have to promise me that no matter how you feel about The Thief, you'll stick around for the sequel, because it's my FAVORITE. But DON'T learn anything about the sequels or you'll ruin things for yourself.

  9. I still need to read the first book in the gargoyle series. I can't remember what it was called off the top of my head...and I'm too lazy to look it up, but I do remember thinking it sounded awesome. There is nothing better than getting a book right after you feature it for WoW. She is Not Invisible looks intriguing. Great haul!
