In My Mailbox {38}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

Fun stuff this week! Got some review books I'm excited about, some cool purchases, and I happened upon a library book sale this morning when I was turning in some books! I love library book sales with all my little ♥. :)

For Review:
Taurus Eyes and Gemini Night by Bonnie Hill Hearn
I picked up the first in this series a few weeks ago at a used book store, so I was excited to get these, so I can review the series as a whole! Thanks, Nicole!

Haunted (Dreaming Anastasia #2) by Joy Preble
I recently read the first in this series and was incredible excited to get this for review! Thank you, Sourcebooks Fire!

Bought:
Scorch Trials by James Dashner
This one was more for hubby since he's a big fan of the first book---but I definitely will be reading this series as soon as I can!

Dark Life by Kat Falls
I've always been curious about this one! It really looks like an amazing dystopian story about an underwater society!

Gone by Michael Grant
I never gave this one a second look because the cover did not grab me at all. But I finally read the synopsis and it sounds pretty amazing! Plus, I got it for a buck at the library sale! :)

Library check-outs:
Candle Man: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilence by Glenn Dakin
This one looks fun---a steampunk adventure about a young boy who can melt people with one touch!!

Keeper by Kathi Appelt
I've always wanted to read this one... a girl sets out to find her mermaid mother! I haven't heard much about it sounds like an interesting story.

Dormia by Jake Halpern & Peter Kujawinski
This one caught my eye at work when someone turned it in---its about a boy who does some pretty amazing things while he sleepwalking and soon finds out its a special skill from an ancient kingdom!

So, that's what I got this week! Hope everyone had a wonderful book week!

  13. I love how you pose your books like that. I loved Dreaming Anastasia, so thanks for letting me know there's going to be a sequel! I'm excited :D I wanted to read Bonnie Hill Hearn's series but I can never find them in stores around me, so I might just have to order them. Anyway, have a great week of reading :)
