In My Mailbox {105}

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

So my blog has been pretty quiet this week, and for that I apologize! But I have a good excuse,...more on that in a minute! This week in my mailbox, I got:

For Review:
Grave Mercy by Robin LeFevers
The Repossession by Sam Hawksmoor
Beyond excited for both of these. I have heard some amazing things already about Grave Mercy and when reading the description for The Repossession, I literally got chills!

Many thanks to Hodder Children's and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for these!

New on my Nook:

Oppression by Jessica Therrien
I actually had a pdf copy from the author of this but I snagged a Nook copy when it was released because it's easier to read on my phone, which I've been doing a lot of lately! But GUYS, this book is awesome so far and right now, it's only 99 cents!! Go grab it! (amazon/barnes)


Ok, so now here's the reason I haven't been blogging much this past week and why my reading time has been limited!
Meet my new baby, Tucker!! ♥♥♥
He's a ten-week-old toy australian shephard. :) Cute as can be,..and yes, daughter and I decided to name him Tucker, like the Unearthly character. Why? Because his daddy was named "Cowboy", so of course, our favorite literary cowboy came to mind! Plus the first day we got him, he napped all day---he was all "tuckered" out.
I thought the name fit perfectly! ;)

Hope everyone had a great week!! Happy reading! :D

    Didn't know Oppression was available on Amazon for only $0,99 (or in my case, 0,89€) - awesome! :) I'm also looking forward to hear what you think of Grave Mercy.

  16. OMGosh Tucker is sooooo cute! It's funny because I actually did an IMM and blog post about a month ago to let people know I hadn't been blogging recently because I got a puppy! Her name is Sophie and she is a Pekingese-Pomeranian-- she even made an appearance in my first IMM video lol :P

    That's so exciting that you got Grave Mercy!! That one is on my wish list :) I will have to check out The Repossession, I haven't heard of that one yet!

    Enjoy everything you got this week! You can check out my IMM at the link below :)
