In My Mailbox (60)

In My Mailbox is a wicked cool meme hosted by The Story Siren where we talk every week about the books we obtained by hook or by crook then go visit other people to see what they got.

Awesome IMM Books

Stack Of Fabulousity!

For Review:

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris (Vine)
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis (Vine)
Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay (Netgalley)
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (Netgalley)
Alif The Unseen by Willow Wilson (Netgalley) – okay so you guys might not have heard of this one but Shelf Awareness described it as being a cyber punk, Middle Eastern Harry Potter for adults. Of course I immediately requested that noise.
Underworld by Meg Cabot (Unsolicited) – OMG THERE’S A LETTER FROM MEG CABOT INSIDE! I DIE!
Endlessly by Kiersten White (Requested Review Copy) – AHHHHHHHH! That’s all I can say. AHHHH!
So Close To You by Rachel Carter (Requested Review Copy) – The jacket describes it as being The Time Traveler’s Wife meets Before I Fall. I cannot resist that.
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan (Requested Review Copy) – FINALLY an answer to some of those vaguely abusive boyfriends in certain books.
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (Requested Review Copy) – It’s sort of a love story between Tiger Lily and Peter Pan. Dudes, that is fricken ACE.
Insignia by SJ Kincaid (Requested Review Copy) – First that cover is banging. Second, it’s about a gamer. SIGN ME UP!
Somebody To Love by Kristan Higgins (Unsolicited Review Copy) – AHHHHH! I am so excited. I’ve only read one KH book and luckily it was the one that introduces the main character of this book. SO YAYYYYYY!

  1. I see you there with your linkage and your amazon vine lurve. GET IT GIRL.

    Tiger Lily does indeed sound ace. Thanks for the heads up, yo!

  2. I’m pretty jealous of your stack πŸ™‚ Tiger Lily looks BRILLIANT. I got Underworld this week and I may have freaked out – I cannot wait to read it! Enjoy all your books πŸ™‚

  3. Ohhh Team Human!! I’m so stoked on that one, it looks freakin awesome!!!! I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚ I’m really excited for Underworld too, I loved Abandon so I’m excited to see what’s going to happen next!!! Enjoy all your books!!

    Anna @ Literary Exploration

  4. Willow Wilson has also written The Butterfly Mosque that has been on my to read list for ages. But thanks for the headsup about Alif. Also, I am burning with envy for your copy of Enchanted. I seriously hope you like it because we have similar reading tastes since I already saw one star (eek) reviews of it on GR. :\
    Nafiza recently posted..On My RadarMy Profile

    • Oh, I like the sound of The Butterfly Mosque!
      And okay, Alif sounds like it is going to be wicked awesome.

      I feel like I’m more… forgiving with books/easy going and I know a lot of people on GR are more persnickety with their tastes, which is fine. I think we all read and experience books differently which makes discussing books way better than if everyone was like, yup I agree. SO yeah, I’ll do my best to read it within two weeks or so.

  5. Great books! Team Human looks really good … as does Tiger Lily! I’m also very intrigued by So Close To You since I adored The Time Traveler’s Wife (still have to read Before I Fall, but it’s Lauren Oliver — not going to disappoint!).

    Great IMM! πŸ™‚

  6. Okay, so, as usual your mailbox is full of win. I’m really interested in both Enchanted and Unraveling, but more than anything I am dying to read Team Human. It’s very existence helps me to sleep at night, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I’m kinda torn on Tiger Lily…everyone’s super excited, and I feel like I should be ’cause I love retellings, but I was never really a Peter Pan fan. Thus, I’ll have to wait for the reviews to flow!
    Heidi recently posted..Review: The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen TurnerMy Profile

    • My mailbox loves winning.

      I like that Team Human was actually written.

      See, I like Peter Pan but am not insane about it. BUT I just love the idea of a sort of telling from the POV of a minor character.

  7. ooooh Underworld. I still need to read Abandon though.
    Rebecca recently posted..Waiting on Wednesday: Venom by Fiona PaulMy Profile

  8. Ohhhhhh! This is just awesome. And I see Unraveling and Team Human in there? *dies a little* Those looks seriously amazingtastic! I hope you enjoy. πŸ˜€

  9. Unraveling looks really good and so does Endlessly even though I haven’t read Supernaturally yet! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here’s my IMM!

  11. I’ll have to look for Alif the Unseen. I remember seeing it in Shelf Awareness now that you mention it…

    I have Unraveling and Unspoken too. I have high hopes for Unspoken because I really like Sarah Rees Brennan’s writing. So Close to You and Team Human sound like books I need to check out too.

  12. YOU GOT ENDLESSLY! I am so very jealous. Team Human and Tiger Lily both look great too! Enjoy your books πŸ™‚
    Alice @ The Reader Room recently posted..In My Mailbox {34}My Profile

  13. πŸ™‚ I got a copy of Alif the Unseen too! It sounded way too good to pass up.

    I can’t wait to see what you think of Tiger Lily & Unraveling! Both caught my eye a while ago and I cannot wait to read them!

    Kristan Higgins books are HUGE where I work and I’ve been so curious about them. They seem like perfect summer books.

    My IMM!

  14. Tiger Lily and Endlessly are high on my wishlist! I requested review copies on Friday so I’m still waiting to hear from Harper, but I so can’t wait either way. Dude, APRIL, your books… JUST AHHHHH. I’m squealing for you even though I wish it was me with all that awesomeness.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  20. Alif The Unseen sounds good in theory, I just get scared when they start comparing it to some things that the book sounds nothing like. Really interested in hearing how you liked it!

  27. Looks like you had an awesome week. πŸ™‚ I really need to read Abandon by Meg Cabot, I have heard a lot of good things about it just haven’t picked up a copy yet. Same with the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White, lol.. I am so far behind. πŸ˜› Insignia also sounds like it’s going to be awesome. Hope you enjoy everything you got this week. πŸ™‚

  35. Oh yeah. Ohhhh yeah. Those books look soooo sexual. I see you there;)

    I haven’t read the Vampire Academy series, but I’ve only heard good things about this and everyone’s longing for Tiger Lily to release. Romeo Redeemed is awesome<3

    Great Haul of book.

  36. Tiger Lily sounds like it’d be so much fun!

    Unraveling I got a few weeks ago and read ASAP, I enjoyed it!

    Hope you enjoy them all!
    Amanda recently posted..In My Mailbox (47)My Profile

  37. Ok, so: Endlessly AHHHHH! I need to request it.
    Tiger Lily: I am SO requesting this one too. I’ve been trying to not request things and not accept things as much because I have SO MANY effing books to read, but sometimes it’s just like, how can you not?
    Team Human: I had been hearing about this vaguely, and always put it in the maybe pile, but this: “FINALLY an answer to some of those vaguely abusive boyfriends in certain books.” put it into the definite pile.
    Alif: I saw that blurb too, and was SO tempted to request it. I’m pretty sure I held off, but if there’s a SA giveaway…Temptation? What temptation.
    Enchanted: AHHHHH! Mine’s on my way to me right now and I CAN’T WAIT. I have been dying for a retelling of this tale.

    EXCELLENT week, April.

  38. Oh, oh, oh, and – You should totally link up your review of Enchanted during FTF, if you’ve read and reviewed it by then. (And if you have, I’ll send people your way in my review, too. =D)

    Paranormalcy is one of those sitting there staring at me! I’m so jealous you’re so far ahead in everything and you’ve got so many great reads ahead!! I need to read faster!!!

  45. I have UNRAVELING to read as well. I really enjoyed ENCHANTED and have had so much trouble sitting on my review. I can’t wait to share it with you next month! I keep seeing TIGER LILY around and I really want to read it! I haven’t determined if I’ll read ENDLESSLY or not. I probably will, though I didn’t LOVE first two! UNDERWORLD, ahh, lucky!!! (And I don’t know if you were emailed my reply or not, but yesssssss, buy SM manga!!!! It’s sooo much more romantic!)

  46. Hello pretty pretty pile of yummy books!

  53. AWESOME MAILBOX BOMB! So much great stuff. I can’t wait for Team Human!
    I read Unraveling for the DAC ARC Tour–I thought it was FANTASTIC. Can’t wait to see what you think!
    And Tiger Lily. Honestly. If that whole book doesn’t sound like the best idea ever, I don’t know what does. I will be INCREDIBLY bummed if it turns out to be meh. Peter Pan is one of my favorite stories, so I’ve got MAD high hopes for Tiger Lily to rock my socks!!
