In My Mailbox #22


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! :)



BORROWED: 

Partials by Dan Wells
Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I actually just finished A Monster Calls and it was honestly one of the most beautifully heartbreaking books I've ever read! If you don't have it on your TBR pile yet, please add it! I already know I'm going to end up buying my own copy to add to my shelf!


BOUGHT: 

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink


WON/GIFTED: 

Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
Torn by Amanda Hocking
Masquerade by Cambria Hebert

I won Harbinger from the amazing Sharon @ Obsession with Books and was really ecstatic when it came on the mail (because I love having the gorgeous cover on my bookshelf)! Thanks so much, Sharon! :)

Kaylee hilarious and sweet girl extraordinaire! gifted Torn to me because she knows how much I adored the first book, and because she knows how crazy things are for me at home right now. I heart you SO much, Kay! :') ♥ Having this surprise come just made my day!

And Cambria Hebert (one of the sweetest authors out there!) sent me a copy of her book, which made me really happy because I'm participating in her Masquerade read-along next month! It's being hosted by Heidi @ Rainy Day Ramblings, Steph @ Five Alarm Book Reviews, Candace @ Candace's Book Blog,  Veronica @ Mostly Reviews and Cambria Hebert. (My first read-along I'm so excited!) If you haven't signed up yet, what are you waiting for? ;)



My camera is down for the week so I couldn't take pictures like I usually do (which made me sad because of how many beautiful books I have this week!), but that doesn't lessen the awesomeness one bit! March break is officially over so I won't have as much time to read as I'd like, but I think I can give up a few hours of sleep to make it work! ;)

Thanks so much again to Cambria Hebert, Kaylee (who I'd link to if she still had a blog *hint hint*), Sharon @ Obsession with Books, and my mailman (who would probably be glad that he wasn't around when I found all of these in my my mailbox because I would've hugged him)! :)

WHAT'S IN YOUR MAILBOX?

  1. Wow, those look awesome, Mimi! I'm planning to buy A Temptation of Angels as well, just because I love Michelle and her books so much, teehee! The Catastrophic...(the title's too long =_=) sounds really good, I've held it at the library too ^_^ If you review it, I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on it! Happy reading! <3

  2. Aww, you're so sweet, Mimi! Thanking your mailman too. :D

    Brilliant haul for you this week! I also got Partials recently and can't wait to read it after all the great reviews I have read for it. I haven't actually read A Monster Calls yet but it's on my TBR (I promise!) and I really can't wait to get round to it. I'm glad you thought it was a good read! Enjoy your lovely new stash of books. :)

  11. So many great books! I'm sad to hear your break's over, but hey, summer is just around the corner! ♥

    A Monster Calls... I definitely wouldn't have picked up. Ever. But I'll wait for your review and maybe give it a chance, since you like it that much :) The Catastrophic History of You and Me! Touch of Frost! They're both books I've wanted to read for a while. I got Touch of Frost already, I don't really know why I'm waiting to read it lol

    Aaaah, Harbinger! The cover is so pretty, it must look fantastic on your shelf :) I haven't read Switched but it's been published here too, si I guess I'll read it soon.

    I hope you enjoy all these books, Mimi! ♥ Have a GREAT week, even if it's not vacations anymore. The weather here's beautiful, I hope there it's wonderful as well *sends you lots of sun and love*

    ReplyDelete
  47. Mimi, you are more ambitious than I am. lol. A Read-A-Long, wooshk. I can barely keep myself updated on the blog, let alone doing that. Haha. But, I actually had my own plans (sort of...) for something similar to that for another series. Time will tell, hahaha. Partials, though, everyone is talking about this book. MUST AWAY TO BOOKSTORE. Super loved Pandemonium, Faery Tales and Nightmares, Torn, Harbinger, and A Temptation of Angels.

    I still need to get my reviews out for a few of the later ones. lol. I am so behind. But, yay for your fantastic goodies. :)

    I can't wait to read A Temptation of Angels and I recently bought Touch of Frost :)

  56. So the only book I've read from here is The Catastrophic History of yadayadayada (it was totally awesome!) but LOVE your mailbox! It all looks awesome and as soon as I find a way to reach into the computer and be all GRABBY HANDS, this is going to be my first stop ;)

    I want to read Faery Tales & Nightmares but I have to finish the Wicked Lovely series first!! I've only read the first 2 but I have the 3rd and I'm so eager to get started. I can't wait to see your review! I've heard nothing but AMAZING things about Patrick Ness and now your recommendation too? *faints*

    P A N D E M O N I U M. Why don't I own you yet? Why? :'( Looooooooooove Lauren Oliver!

    I really need to give the Gallagher Girls series a re-read! I read the first 2 books but that was a few years ago and I'm pretty fuzzy on the details. I have the 1st one from NG so hopefully I get to it before it expires :) I hope you love the newest one!

    HAVE A SUPER-MAGNIFICENT-FANTASTIC WEEK, MIMI <3
