In My Mailbox #111

Saturday, December 7, 2013 with 16 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.

In case y'all didn't know, it's ICEMAGGEDON here in Texas.  =)  School and work were cancelled yesterday, so I cuddled up with the Katester and watched Turbo and assorted Christmas movies, but I also took the opportunity to catch up on some reading.  I plan to spend today catching up on what you guys have been doing.  Something I haven't had much time for lately, and I apologize for that.  But you guys know I love you, right?  :D

Anyway, here's what I scored this week:

Going VintageForeplay (The Ivy Chronicles, #1)

Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt - Purchased audio even though I already had the galley from earlier this year...just never made time for it, or rather, I put it aside after only a little bit, and now I wish I hadn't.

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan - On sale for $2.99 and the reviews of this NA are pretty decent, so I thought I'd give it a try.

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

  7. Great list of books! I somehow avoided downloading the Harper titles (so far) but oh they are so tempting! I hope to see some early reviews before I take on more to read. I did, however, request the Falconer and my request is pending :-( Fingers crossed I get the accepted next week. we shall see. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! Great selection of reads :-)

  8. I can't wait to read Don't Look Back!

    I heard about Texas shutting down! I remember when we lived there a few years ago, the whole post shutdown for 2 days after we got some snow. It was CRAZY!

    Have a good week :)

  9. We've been ice-bound for three days now and it is getting old!

    Looks like you have tons of good books to read. I hope you enjoy them!

  10. Stay safe! It's getting pretty bad in PA, too, although not as bad as what TX and some other parts of the country are experiencing. Look at all those pretty covers! I can't wait to read Bright Before Sunrise and Don't You Forget About Me. Fantastic haul this week! I hope all that ice melts soon!

  11. Awesome that we both got The Falconer! It sounds sooo good, I only hope I don't have unrealistic expectations :/
    I almost requested JLA's book but I just wasn't sure. And I have too much to read anywa >.< And The Archived really needs to come out on paperback already, I've been wanting to read it for ages and I've never seen a negative review for it!
    Thanks so much for going on a comment-spree on my blog :) My Zurich post was feeling lonely before you came by...

  12. Oooh, you have Don't Look Back! I just love that cover! I definitely need to go check out these new Harper titles on Edelweiss. Definitely waiting for my new Kindle though. I'm sick of having them expire on my nook. lol I hope you enjoy these!

  13. Sorry about the Christmas party :( But It's nice to have a day off to read -- glad you enjoyed it. I'm excited about The Falconer too!
