In My Mailbox (51)

6:00 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.

In the past two weeks, I got...



Received for Review:
Thanks so much to Bookurious, Random House Canada, Raincoast Books and Simon & Schuster Canada for sending these novels for review! I'd also like to extend a warm thank you to Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman for sending me their novel Sirenz along with some fun swag!

Won:
I was so surprised to learn that I had won a signed copy of Lauren Oliver's Liesl & Po through a Twitter contest hosted by The Savvy Reader / HarperCollins Canada. Thank you so much! And if you're not already following them, you should absolutely do so over at @SavvyReader! 

Bought:
The third time was the charm as I was finally able to buy The Iron Knight this week! I cannot wait to see how the Julie Kagwa will end the Iron Fey series. (And my heart still hasn't recovered after reading The Iron Queen...) 

And I just had to buy Shatter Me as well, especially since my ARC version doesn't have the cover; the book is so shiny! I've been hearing tons of praise for the Shade series, so I bought the first book. Why did nobody tell me to read it sooner? I really enjoyed it! I also already read The Shadow Reader and it's a great adult urban fantasy novel with faeries! I was also happy to see Saving June in stores early and I'm looking forward to reading it as well.

What about YOU? Any new reads/finds this week as well? 

And as always... Happy Reading!

  5. SAVING JUNE is amazing. Can't wait to read CINDER, DEARLY, DEPARTED and TEMPEST. I enjoyed LIESL & PO - such a fun and magical read. :) And of course, SHATTER ME is just out of this world. One of my favourites of 2011, for sure.

    Happy reading!

  6. Well hello awesome two weeks! I see they've been exceptionally kind on your bookshelf :D Ahhh I can't wait to read Tempest!! I love anything to do with time travel. I don't often read MG books, but I know I need to try Liesel and Po because Lauren Oliver is just amazing.

    I lovelovelove Dearly Departed, Cinder and Saving June! And I swear, if I see one more gushing review for Shatter Me I will go nuts because the urge to reread is already at it's peak. Cannot resist the temptation much longer *TBR pile groans*

    Enjoy your books! :)
