In My Mailbox ~ April 29, 2012

In My Mailbox is a meme that is hosted by The Story SirenIt's a fun way to share what books we got for the week. They can be from publishers, the library, bought, or whatever. They don't have to be from the mailbox. Mine usually aren't!



Here are the books I got since the last IMM:

Thank you St. Martin's Press! I just finished it, so hopefully I'll get a review up this week!

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) | Sarah J. Maas
This isn't the cover; I think it's going to be revealed on Monday (so says the author on her blog)! I got this image from facebook, because I had to have something, right? I'm reading this one right now. I've just started it, but it's looking very promising!

Timepiece (Hourglass #2) | Myra McEntire
I actually haven't read the first one yet, but I do own it! So, I'm moving this series up on my to read list. :) I'm actually pretty excited to read them.

House of Night (Graphic Novel #1) | P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast
I'm interested to read this! I'm bummed I can't read it on my kindle Fire though. I'll have to see if I can get it to look good on the computer monitor.


For those of you who are fellow book bloggers, I'm sure you want to know why I'm still doing IMM. Here ya go:

So, I know that many of you have decided to stop doing IMM because of the whole plagiarizing thing that's gone down this week. Well, I haven't totally decided where I stand on the issue, and I really enjoy doing this meme, so for now I'm keeping it.

YES, I agree that Kristi was wrong to copy those other bloggers. However, she has apologized and I feel like forgiveness should be given to her. I know that I'd be angry that she stole my content, but I'd also eventually come to terms with it and forgive her.

We're all human, and we all make mistakes. She's definitely paying for it and I wouldn't want to be her this week! I'm sure most of you have seen how much backlash she's had because of it. I'm definitely disappointed that she of all people was caught doing this. I'm not defending her, but I'm not condemning her either. She cracked. I'd love to say that I've never done something that I knew was wrong, but I have. Who hasn't? What's that saying... let ye who has no sins throw the first stone? Yeah, I guess I'm just not gonna be throwing stones right now.

  2. Never heard of Throne of Glass, but that cover definitely makes me want to find out more!! I feel you about the whole Story Siren debacle. I'm not condemning her either--but since I've never participated in IMM, I guess I just wanted a fresh start with another similar meme. Also, that huge list kinda scares me lol. Hope she makes it through this; I know I still enjoy her posts, but like you said, I definitely don't condemn what she did or how she went about (or didn't go about) taking responsibility for her actions. Just a crappy situation all around. Thanks for checking out my blog!!
    Hope you have a great week,
    Ninja Girl

    1. I like Tynga's blog a lot, so I thought about joining that one too! I might change over to it later. :)

      It really is a crappy situation all the way around. :(

  4. I just didn't have time to make an IMM post this week. I love sharing the books that I got, so I will continue to do it regardless. I personally don't really care about what drama is going on, I try to stay away from it. I don't agree with it at all, but she is definitely get the backlash from it. I'm curious to see how it will all pan out in the end.

  5. yeah. I don't like to join in on the drama either! Yes, what she did was wrong, but holy geez! the backlash right now is crazy. :( It's just sad.

    Looking forward to seeing your IMM next week. :)
