In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at the Story Siren where we talk about the books we obtained during the week then go check out other people’s books.

IMM 67 Books

For Review:

Burn For Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian (Netgalley) – I feel like a poseur being excited for this because I haven’t read any Jenny Han yet, but I really liked the Siobhan Vivian book I read.

Size 12  And Ready To Rock by Meg Cabot (Unsolicited) – I haven’t actually read this series yet, BUT I did put the other books on hold at my library and they’ll show up in next week’s IMM because I have to pick them up still.

What’s Left Of Me by Kat Zhang (Unsolicited) – YESSSS! DEBUT NOVEL THAT I AM SO PUMPED ABOUT YESSS. Also? The paper says it combines elements of The Golden Compass and Girl, Interrupted and you guys I LIKE BOTH OF THOSE THINGS.

Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs (Unsolicited) – I have the first book and I kind of fail because I haven’t read it yet. SOON though I promise!

Fang Girl by Helen Keeble (Unsolicited) – There is humor involved. Plus vampires. I am in.

The Dead Girls Detective Agency by Suzy Cox (Unsolicited) – OH YEAHHH MYSTERYY YEAHHHH.

The Crown Of Embers by Rae Carson (Unsolicted) – HOLY EFF YOU GUYS I WAS DOING THE THRILLER DANCE AFTER GETTING THIS I WAS SO EXCITED YOU CAN TELL BY MY CAPSLOCK. Seriously, this is like my number one anticipated fall book. I LOVED Girl Of Fire And Thorns, LOVED IT as in it was one of my favorite reads last year so I legit hugged The Crown Of Embers after I tore it from the package like a total nerd.

So what awesome books did you get this week? I would absolutely LOVE TO KNOW!
