In My Mailbox #12


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we spotlight the books that we've received for review, swapped, or purchased that week. It's a really great idea and I'm excited to take part! :)


FOR REVIEW: 
Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig (LOVED THIS BOOK!)
Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
(Ahhhh!!! Thank you SO much to HarperCollins & HarperTeen for these three! I squealed when I got them it made my day! I've already finished one of them and I'm reading a second right now. Reviews will be posted ASAP!)



BORROWED:

Legend by Marie Lu
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore
Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder (I saw Tiffany's 5-star review of this book and just knew I had to pick it up! And it's unlike anything I've ever read before in the best possible way thanks so much for the recommendation, Tiffany!)


BOUGHT TO GIFT: 

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (For my cousin Emily She loves all things wolf-related, and I know she'll love this book!) 
The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (For my cousin Timmy I haven't read this series yet but I've only heard amazing things about it! And he actually wanted to read these, so how could I NOT buy them for him?)
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (For my friend, Kay because I love her to the moon and beyond, but she still hasn't picked up her copy of this yet! Crazy, right? Especially considering I have two copies of my own LOL!)

It's so close to Christmastime that all of these books feel like amazing early presents (and presents for other people too)! :) Thanks again times a million to HarperCollins & HarperTeen for fueling my love for their books (and covers), and to the library for existing!

Don't you just think that books make the greatest gifts? ;)

WHAT'S IN YOUR MAILBOX?
