In My Mailbox #15

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! :)


Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Matchev
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck


Dreamland by Alyson Noel

(Thank you so much to Lulu @ The Bookworm is Here for the book, the shimmery tattoo, and the extremely sweet sticky note attached to it! You're a gallon of awesomeness, Lulu!)


Slide by Jill Hathaway
Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

(A HUGE thanks to HarperCollins Canada and Spencer Hill Press for these! I'm serious it took every ounce in my body to not read these books with exams coming up and all my summatives being due this week... but I know what I'm doing directly after! ;P)

And because this made me want to dance around like crazy:

YUP. You saw that right: my review was blurbed inside the ARC of Pure!! It just made my year it was my first time ever getting blurbed in a book!! *happy dance* You should've seen me when I got this. My family thought I was going crazy haha! x)

And that's my mailbox! Thanks again to the library, Lulu @ The Bookworm is Here, HarperCollins Canada, and Spencer Hill Press for making this week awesome! :)
