In My Mailbox #18


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: 

Until I Die by Amy Plum
The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson

(Do you see what I see??? The cover for Until I Die is even more gorgeous in person, if that's even possible! Thank you SO much to HarperCollins Canada and their fantastic rep for sending it to me! And I'm loving the sound of The Chaos too I wasn't expecting it to come, so it came as a really cool surprise! Thanks a gazillion to Simon & Schuster Canada for putting it on my radar!)


BORROWED: 

A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies


BOUGHT: 

The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams

It may not be the biggest mailbox out there, but it made me really happy! :) A million extra THANK YOUs to HarperCollins Canada and Simon & Schuster Canada for the review copies!

WHAT'S IN YOUR MAILBOX? 

-Mimi

EDITED TO ADD: I was just over at the ever-sweet Hilda's blog and I just found out that her blog was deleted. Blogger deleted it without warning or telling her! I would've been devastated if I was her, especially since she just had to recreate her blog and start from scratch!

It would mean a lot to me if you'd drop by her newly created blog, Catch the Lune, and follow her! She's a really great blogger & person who doesn't deserve that. We're hoping her old blog will be restored but for now, I'm sure your support would help her too.

You can read more about it on her post HERE. Thank you so much, you guys!

  28. UNTIL I DIE!!! LUCKY GIRL! Tell Vincent and Jules I said hi, okay? :) The Chaos looks AWESOME, really interested to read your review for that. And I quite enjoyed A Beautiful Dark - but you better be chanting Team Asher when you finish! :P Amazing mailbox, Mimi! I hope we both enjoy The Alchemy of Forever :)

    And that is terrible what happened to Hilda! :( My blog was deleted a couple months ago and I FREAKED OUT. I have no idea why, but thankfully not long later it was restored back. But to lose everything you've worked so hard on... devestating =\
