In My Mailbox {60}

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 this week: one tour book, one super gorgeous review book, and I happened upon an awesome sale at BN.com---buy 3 paperbacks, get a fourth free---so I did a little book-buying as well! (By the way, the fourth paperback was for a friend so it's not shown here, but it was Ruined by Paula Morris, which I read last year and loved!)
For Review:
Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Happy dance for this one! I'm very excited to read this modern day retelling of Tristan and Isolde. This cover is one of my favorites out there right now!

From Around the World ARC Tours:
A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
Been looking forward to this one for a long time, so when the tour opened, I happily jumped on board!

Bought:
A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper
I received the second book in the this series, so I grabbed this to read first. I opened it as soon it got here and I was immediately drawn into the story!

The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore
I've always wanted to read this one and I'm really anticipating the authors upcoming book, Texas Gothic---thought it was the perfect time to try this one out!

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
I reluctantly handed this one back to the library unread recently, so when the B&N sale came along I ordered a copy of my own. :)

Hope everyone has a good week!

  1. Another fab IMM. Girl I really need to get my shelves organized. Every time I take a peak at your book shelf... I feel horribly ashamed for mistreating my books. Oops today we will start to clean it up :)

    Love the cupcakes rating system. Makes me all the more hungry :)

  7. Sounds you have a good plan! I recently read Tris $Izzie (a friend gave it to me as a gift) and i loved it! I won't say anything more, because i want everyone to come to their own conclusions...but i highly recommend it.
