In My Mailbox (10)

In My Mailbox is a meme that is hosted by The Story Siren. It's a fun way to share what books we got for the week. They can be from publishers, the library, bought, or whatever.



Another great week in books for me! I think having a book blog kind of makes me want to buy more and more books. LOL! Hey, I try to buy them on sale or the cheap mass market ones, so there. :P

So here's the Vlog (or you can just scroll down and see the pictures instead). Sorry that the quality isn't the greatest. I'm having a hard time getting my good camera to do what I want it to do :



See one of my kitties down there? That's Isabelle. :)

For Review:


Wildefire | Karsten Knight
Aaaaah!!! I can't even tell you how freakin excited I am for this one!! I got it on the Simon and Schuster Galley Grab (a program for reviewers for those of you don't know). I'd love a hard copy, but if the only way I'll get to read this is on my computer screen, I'll do it! I can't wait to dig into this! Yes!!

Cinder and Ella | Melissa Lemon
This one sounds cute! I got it from NetGalley.

Losing Beauty | Johanna Garth
Goodreads | Amazon
I'm a follower of Johanna's blog, Losing Sanity. She asked me if I wanted to review her book, and I said as long as it doesn't ruin our blogger friendship! LOL.  Thanks Johanna! I'm almost done with it and I will have a review up sometime this week I think!


Bought:

Wicked Enchantment | Anya Bast
I totally bought this one because I love the cover of the newest book (Dark Enchantment). I figured I should start at the beginning of the series. ;) (even if I don't really love this cover as much).

The Darkest Kiss | Gena Showalter
Once I started book one, I knew that I HAD to pick up the second book in the series.I just posted the review yesterday.

Divergent | Veronica Roth
I had a 40% off coupon for Borders, so I ran out and bought this one!! Yay!!! I can't wait to get it signed at the Dark Days of Supernatural Tour! 

Free:

 The Girl Who Loved Historical Romance | Multiple authors
My friend Tina saw this sitting out at Powells. It was free! It's a sampler of first chapters from some historical romance novels. It's even signed by Courtney Milan! Yay for free. :)

  1. Great books! I haven't heard of Wildefire before, but it looks really good and i've noticed it pop up in several IMMs this week.

    Divergent!! Am super jealous. I'm trying not to buy full-priced books but i've heard so many amazing things about it! Looking forward to reading what you thought of it.

    The Girl Who Loved Historical Romance sounds very cool. They should do do one of those for YA genres. Hehe, I like the 'with bonus alter ego' thing.

    Happy Reading!
