In My Mailbox {52}

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

Got some fun stuff this week...and Ta-da!!...stuck to my book-buying ban! The copy of Entangled is a purchase, but I ordered it weeks ago. Took ages to get to me...I mean it usually takes Book Depository a little longer to get books to me, but 18 days?? I was starting to get worried. Still, it's made it now and it's gorgeous, so I'm grateful. :)

For Review:
The Darlings are Forever by Melissa Kantor
This one looks sweet and light---I'll need something like this after what I'm reading now.

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
I've been excited for this one for ages. Can't wait to dive in.

Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
This one, if I understand correctly, is a novelization of the upcoming movie, written simultaneously to filming. The fun thing is the book does not include the last chapter---to keep from spoiling the movie ending, the last chapter will be release on the website to coincide with the movie release. Pretty excited about the book...and the movie!

Entangled by Cat Clarke
Love this book, amazing stuff. You can read my review here.

(Many thanks to Hyperion CH, Flux Books, and Little,Brown Books for the review copies!)

So, that is all for me! Hope everyone had a wonderful book week!

This week on Stories & Sweeties:
~I'll be reviewing Drought and hopefully finish and review The Book of Tomorrow.
~Last few days to enter the January New Reads Giveaway!!

  4. Fantastic looking books. That's a bit strange about Red Riding Hood not having a last chapter available until the movie is out, that would get on my nerves if I'd read the book and had to wait for the last chapter! lol

  5. All great books! I just finished The Iron Witch and it was fab! (Xan was just so gorgeous).

    The Book Depository UK can take that long, and sometimes longer to get books to me even though i'm in the UK!

  21. I got Red Riding Hood, too but I haven't heard much good about it. The movie trailer looks awesome of course.
    I think on the one hand it's a nice gimmick that they left out the last chapter not to spoil the movie but actually... seriously? That totally sucks. Who sells a book with the last chapter missing? That's horrible and annoying. If I buy a book I want to get the whole package.

  22. Wow that's a great looking bunch of books! Hope you'll enjoy them all! the left out ending of Red Riding Hood is a good idea!
