In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives readers the chance to spotlight the books they received over the past week, whether they are for review, won, gifted, or borrowed.

As I had promised you guys last week, this week's haul is not nearly as... Extravagant? It is still amazing and I am beyond grateful, but it doesn't give you a false impression about how popular I am in the blogosphere. I am a peon, I know this, and quite frankly, I love it. Here's what I have received this week:

For Review


ARC/Finished Copies Sent by Author/Publisher

Latter-Day of the Dead by Kevin Krohn (Courtesy of the author, which I have reviewed here)
Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo (Courtesy of MacMillan Children's Publishing Group and Goodreads)

From NetGalley



The Prince Who Fell from the Sky by Jean Claude Bemis
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Dust Girl by Sarah Zettel
The Book of Lost Fragrances by M. J. Rose

Now bear in mind that I did not receive these books this week from NetGalley. They are just on my "YOU MUST GET THESE READ IMMEDIATELY!!!" list for this week. With the exception of The Book of Lost Fragrances, you won't be seeing the reviews for a while, as I try to stick with the publisher's preference of waiting until 30 days before the release date before posting the review. But they are coming!

Won


ARC/Finished Copy (and swag)

The Legacy of Eden by Nelle Davy (Won at Let Them Read Books)
My Hare Line and the Hat by Patsy M. Henry (Won at I Am a Reader Not a Writer)
Friendship Bracelet made by Lora Richards (Won at Lora Richard's blog)


Ebook

The Post-College Guide to Happiness by Bryan Cohen (Won* at The Daily Harrell)

Bought


Here Comes Mr. Trouble by Brett Battles (I think I got it for free on Amazon. I can't remember.)

I was a good girl when it came to buying books this week because I have got to get through those above NetGalley reviews, and I want to get as many Authors After Dark books read as possible before August. My migraines have put me behind (I really hate Spring), and I've been playing catch-up for ages. Blah blah blah here I go rambling blah blah blah.

So, what did you get in your mailbox this week?


*The author is giving away free digital review copies as a part of The Happiness Blog Tour. I plan to review this book since his goal is to read a certain number on Amazon.

  1. Oh, my goodness. Rachel's Seraphina has become one of my most favorite books I have ever read. It was AMAZING! If you are a peon, I am even smaller than that! But I am very excited about my exclusively Kady Cross Mailbox - I love steampunk and really hope this is a new series I can enjoy.

    1. I doubt you're smaller than a peon. I'm just lucky so far because I also manage a library and work at another one. :-)

      I'm super excited about Seraphina! I am a fantasy nerd, and I have held off as long as possible on this one so I don't go on a fantasy binge and get nothing else read. I'm so glad to hear that it's good!

    1. You have to let me know what you think of Dust Girl, and you should definitely read Latter-Day of the Dead if you like horror at all. It was a great zombie book. :-)

  4. I let my 16 year old read Lexapros and Cons, but I can't see having it in my middle school library. Did love the cover, but you can see why in the very first paragraph!
