In My Mailbox {59}

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

Got some great stuff for review this week, and scored some fun books at bargain prices!! All in all, an awesome book week!
For Review:
Seven Kinds of Ordinary Catastrophes by Amber Kizer
I really enjoyed Meridian by this author, so I'm curious if I'll enjoy her contemporary work as well.

The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
I haven't read this series, so I'll have to seek out the read the first two! I tend to avoid Zombie stories, so I may pass this one on to another reviewer---any volunteers? :)

The Fitzosbornes in Exile by Michelle Cooper
This one looks amazing!! It's a second in a series, so I'll be ordering A Brief History of Montmarary this week!

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland on a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
I posted about this one a few weeks ago...the trailer is so perfect and I can't wait to crack this one open!

Shimmer by Alyson Noel
I loved the first book in this MG series, I can't wait to see what is in store for Riley and Bodie!

Many thanks to Random House & Macmillan for these!

Bought:
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
I've wanted to read this for a year now...finally just grabbed my own copy. Sooo pretty.

Ash by Malinda Lo
Love this book---catch my review here.

All You Get is Me by Yvonne Prinz
This has been on my wishlist forever. I lucked out finding it at half-price!

Jane by April Lindner
Another of my favorites---here's my review.

Fool's Girl by Celia Rees
This one's gotten mixed reviews, but I couldn't resist the pretty cover and a story involving Shakespeare for just a couple bucks. :)

So this week, expect reviews of Exposed and hopefully Huntress. AND...guys! Wow! I went away today and came back to 800 followers! I may just have to do a little giveaway to say thanks to each and every one of my lovely blog readers! :D Thanks so much, everyone!

  6. I will have to check out your reviews. I have Jane but haven't read it yet. I liked Ash and I have Huntress. I was supposed to read it this week but I had a hard time getting into the story so I'm going to try it again later. I loved The Dark and Hollow Places but I know that zombie fiction isn't for everyone :)

    I enjoyed Meridian and I'm looking forward to Wildcat Fireflies (though I hate that name!). I had no idea that Amber Kizer had written contemporary fiction as well.

    Congratulations on reaching 800 followers! Have a great week :)

  10. You're a little bit closer to reading Brightly Woven! I hope you love it. :) I can't wait to hear what you think of Fool's Girl. I haven't read it yet, but that cover is so pretty!

  11. "Exile" looks so intriguing!! I hadn't seen it before, I need to find out more info!

  12. Congrats on reaching 800 followers! I enjoyed The Fool's Girl because parts of it were really good but others needed that extra something. If you've read Twelth Night then I think it would help you to understand the story more I'm interested to see what you think of it. I'm off to check out your review of Ash- enjoy all your new books :)

  14. If you really want to pass on the Dark and Hollow Places ... But I'd recommend reading the first 2. I own both and love them. I was little hesitant about zombies, but Ryan does a great job.

    I'm gonna go read your review of Jane. I also reviewed it on my blog. :-)

  15. What a great week! Brightly Woven & Jane are two of my favorites.

    I’ve only read the first in Carrie Ryan’s series. Even if you aren’t a zombie fan you might light it :)
