In My Mailbox and Mailbox Monday - 8/29


IMM is a meme started at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.

Mailbox Monday can be found at: The Printed Page

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This week I got eight books.  Five of them were for review.  I got Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Prized (Birthmarked, Book 2) by Caragh M. O'Brien, and Slayers by C.J. Hill through NetGalley.com.  I got The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann and The Dragon's Tooth: Ashtown Burials #1 by N.D. Wilson through the Amazon Vine program.

I bought two books: Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts, Book 1) by Stacia Kane (on sale v. cheap for Amazon Kindle) and Down to the Bone (Quantum Gravity, Book 5) by Justina Robson (the final Quantum Gravity book!!!).

I also got one book through Paperbackswap.com: Rise Again: A Zombie Thriller by Ben Tripp

You can check out the covers and links to more info on them below.  Hope you all got some excellent books and have a wonderful week of reading!!!

  5. I am excited to read Unholy Ghosts too, I've been wanting to read that series forever and just have never gotten around to getting the book.

    I plan on reading Unwanteds some time this week, so check next week for a review of it to be posted up here!

    Thanks to everyone who stopped by :-)
