In My Mailbox (25)

1:35 PM

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where we share any new books or goodies we bought, received, borrowed, etc. during the week. 

This week I got...



Received for Review:
  • ARC of Miles From Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams 
I actually received two copies of Miles From Ordinary so I'll probably be giving one away in the future. Thank you St. Martin's Press for the review copies! 

Won:
  • ARC of Original Sin (Personal Demons #2) by Lisa Desrochers 
I was so happy to find out I was one of the winners of an ARC of Original Sin from a Twitter contest through Tor.com Urban Fantasy (@tordotUF). Thanks so much!! 

Bought:
  • Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler
  • Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen 
I've been looking forward to reading Playing Hurt for ages so I was really happy to finally get my hands on a copy! I was going to buy Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins as well but after seeing none on the shelf, I searched on a kiosk at Chapters/Indigo and learned there were no copies to be found anywhere in any of the Ontario stores that popped up! Isn't that just so sad? I'm hoping the stores gets them in soon! Water for Elephants was a random buy while I was at Wal-Mart. I know there's the movie coming out, so I figured, "Why not check out the book?" I hope it's good!

What about you? Any new reads/finds this week?

And as always... Happy Reading!
