In My Mailbox {18}

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours, publishers, libraries, borrowed books from friends, and the list goes
on! It's just a way of showing off the books you received in the past week and making sure they're featured on the blog.

WOW, so this week ended up being a HUGE week for me in terms of books!




See what I mean? HUGE!

  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (purchased from Amazon.com because I wanted a hardcover!)
  • Exiled (Volume 1) by M.R. Merrick (purchased from Amazon.com because I love this book and wanted a physical copy, but I've already read and reviewed the e-book!)
  • Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (purchased from Amazon.com and it released early, yay! I've already read this one as well, but HAD to have a physical copy and there is an extra scene in this one from Daemon's POV which is so good!)
  • ARC Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell ~ TBR May 1, 2012 (from Manda Group)
  • ARC The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis ~ TBR January 1, 2012 (from Manda Group)
  • ARC Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews ~ TBR March 1, 2012 (from Manda Group)
Now the rest of these books pictured are all from HUKCanada, which is incredible and just so generous of them! I was thrilled by all of these surprises they offered :)
  • The Double Shadow by Sally Gardner
  • Spirit Walker (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #2) by Michelle Paver
  • Oath Breaker (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #5) by Michelle Paver
  • Ghost Hunter (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #6) by Michelle Paver
  • Emily Windsnap and the Siren's Secret (Emily Windsnap #4) by Liz Kessler
  • Sundered Lands (Fair Wind to Widdershins) by Allan Frewin Jones and Gary Chalk
  • The Mourning Emporium by Michelle Lovric
  • Dead Man's Cove by Lauren St. John
  • Vampires and Volts (The Raven Mysteries #4) by Marcus Sedgwick
  • Verity Fibbs by Cathy Brett
  • Twisted Heart (Dark Angel #2) by Eden Maguire
  • Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick
  • How to Steal a Dragon's Sword (Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III #9) by Cressida Crowell
  • Grace Williams Says It Loud by Emma Henderson
  • The Game: The Valley by Krystyna Kuhn
  • Lucky Bunny by Jill Dawson
  • The Bad Tuesdays 2: Strange Energy by Benjamin J. Myers
  • Rose and the Magician's Mask (Rose #3) by Holly Webb
  • Winter's Knight by Richard Argent
Clearly, I'm going to be kept busy over my Christmas break haha! But I'm looking forward to all of these, especially the UK ones since there were so many I'd never heard of but I'm now looking forward to! The Game kind of reminds me of Variant, and I'm REALLY excited for Lucky Bunny- it sounds like something kind of different and refreshing from what I typically read.

E-books:
  • Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (YES I bought a second Kindle copy because I desperately wanted those extra scenes. The e-book includes TWO bonus scenes from Daemon's POV, different from the paperback!)
  • All's Fair in Vanities War by Elizabeth Marx (from author for blog tour)

Feel free to leave a comment on my mailbox and to leave a link so I can visit yours! :)
