In My Mailbox (16)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren. It aims to encourage bloggers to interact with one another and to explore the books received for review, bought, borrowed, won or gifted by bloggers.

I keep forgetting to post IMM. So the books here are three weeks old. I have been waiting for two weeks now. Two weeks and no notices! I’m getting really worried because I need to get some ‘asap’ review books for tours. And as far as I know, they’re not here.

For Review:

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross (Manuscript) – I had this bound and I’ll read it soon!
Legend by Marie Lu (Signed ARC) – for Dystopian Domination Giveaway
I reviewed this a week ago and I totally LOVED it!
Bloodspell by Amalie Howard (ARC) – a vampire-witch novel and a favorite of mine!
The Lighter Side of Life and Death by CK KellyMartin – (reviewed this one too! Good YA male voice) + swag
Angel Kiss by Laura Jane Cassidy (signed) – A chilling mystery. Read. Review to come soon! I’m going to give my duplicate copy to a fellow blogger. :)
Dress Rehearsal by Zoe Thurner – I’m super excited to read this! An Aussie debut.
Betrayal by Mayandree Michel (not pictured! Reviewed for tour.)

Angel’s Fury by Byrony Pierce
Hereafter by Tara Hudson (a shiny finished copy) – I reviewed the ARC!
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (another shiny finished copy)

Solstice by PJ Hoover (dystopia meets mythology)

Forgotten by Cat Patrick (for giveaway – sent to winner) + heart Forgotten post-its for me!
Divergent by Veronica Roth (gifted – thanks Mom!)

From Netgalley & S&S Galley Grab:

Circle Nine by Anna Heltzel (currently reading)
Misfit by Jon Skovron
Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz
Legacy by Cayla Kluver
Ultraviolet by RJ Anderson
Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier
Deviant by Adrian Mckinty
Addie on the Inside by James Howe


Summer’s Crossing by Julie Kagawa (It’s free actually! Reviewed.)
Strange Case of Finley Jane by Kady Cross (Free too)

That’s it! But there’s more to come and I hope that they arrive soon!
