In My Mailbox (22)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren, in which we get to discover the new books that each blogger got for the week. It also encourages us to connect with other bloggers.

Hi everyone! So this is my first In My Mailbox post for 2012 after the 2012 TBR Tower. I’ve been busy this week – got lots of reports, exams – but I’m happy that I got these lovelies:

For Review:

Halflings by Heather Burch (Finished Copy)
Replication by Jill Williamson (Finished Copy)

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (Finished Copy)
The Way We fall by Megan Crewe (ARC)

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda (ARC)
Fated by Sarah Alderson (Finished Copy) – read and loved! Check out my review here.

Cliques, Hicks and Ugly Sticks by KD McCrite
Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis (signed ARC)

The Downside of Being Charlie by Jenny Torres Sanchez (ARC)
Immortal Link by Uta Burke (Finished Copy)


I know I’m supposed to be on a book buying ban! But I just couldn’t resist. *sighs* There’s this shop called BookSale. They sell second hand books. But oh my – the books that I bought were in mint condition, especially the hardcovers. And I was able to buy them for…1/5 – 1/11 of the original price!

Witches of East End by Melissa dela Cruz – I’ve wanted to get a copy of this since last year. But the paperback was just…too expensive for me. So when I saw this, I just had to get it.

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev – Wow. You guys don’t know how difficult it is to spot a copy of this book.

Beautiful by Cindy Martinusen-Coloma – I’ve reviewed Caleb + Kate by Cindy when I first started blogging. And I love her writing style! 

Big thank you to: Candica & Zondervan, Ashlea, Pier 9, Simon & Schuster UK, BookSneeze & Thomas Nelson, Phoebe, Jenny, Kerry, Levine Greenberg, and Uta Burke!

That’s all for In My Mailbox! What did you get? Leave your link and I'll drop by!

  14. PRECIOUS! I'm coming to your house, did I tell you? Probably not, since I'll likely be wearing a ski mask and carrying a sack full of your books out through your window. Hmmm. Please pretend you didn't read that sentence *shifty eyes*

    THE HUNT! OMG. I am dying to read that book. It sounds freaking amazing. So jealous of you and Kai! Plus I really want to read Halflings and Glimmer! Enjoy reading!!

    1. Ha! I'll be on the lookout! :) nah, I'm sure you'll get the chance to read The Hunt soon! Request it! It's just too terrifying, too addicting and too irresistibly good! I'll read Halflings and Glimmer soon! And I'll tell you my thoughts. :)

  15. Under the Never Sky is so amazing! Ooh, and Fated!

    Wonderful IMM, I hope you enjoy them all :)

  16. Oh my gosh! Very jealous of your new books! I want to read the Way We Fall! And I've heard of it dystopian too?

    1. Hi! :) Thank you for dropping by! Replication is sci-fi. But it does sound dystopian-like!
