In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren that I really enjoy participating in. Basically you talk about the books you obtained during the week and then take the time to check out other blogs and drool over what came in their mailbox. It’s a pretty neat community builder.
Yo, so most of you who communicate with me on the twitters know that I went to Chicago very, very last minute this week, as in I found out on Monday that I would be flying out on Wednesday. And, sigh, I was without solid internet access until Saturday night. On the upside, I read 3 netgalley books (While He Was Away, Of Poseidon, Something Like Normal AND I started Code Name Verity) plus I came home to a sweet stack of mail!
Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas (Netgalley) – Y’all know that fantasy is totally my kryptonite, I can’t resist it so I kind of whooped at being approved for this book, like a total dork. But c’mon, I bet you’d be whooping at your netgalley approvals too.
The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee (Netgalley) – Okay, so um there’s a murder and a cray cray girl? Bish, my clicky finger went NUTS when I saw this.
All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin (unsolicited) – I have already read and reviewed and LOVED this, but yay paperback copy.
Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin (unsolicited) – YOU GUYS! I am so pumped about this, like I was going to wait in line at the BEA for this noise, but then it came in my mail and I am like bahahaha no line waiting and did a small little happy dance and my boyfriend was all calm the eff down crazy girl and I was like, hun you know how I get about lines, and then he understood why I was SOOOO excited.
The Battle Of Blood And Ink by Jared Axelrod and Steve Walker (Unsolicited) – Steampunk graphic novel? Be still my heart. Seriously, I just love me some graphic novels always and forever.
Changeling by Philippa Gregory audiobook (accepted review copy) – Bro, I love both audiobooks AND historical fiction and I also really liked the one Philippa Gregory book I read. I am legit pumped to listen to this book on my run and commute.
Darkness Before Dawn by JA London (unsolicited) – I am not even sure what this is about, also there is a sad girl in a pretty dress. However, I’ll keep an open mind, I suppose.
