In My Mailbox (16)

November 7, 2010

In My Mailbox is hosted every week by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It gives bloggers the chance to share what books they received/bought during the week and it’s a great way to discover titles you may not have otherwise heard of.

I haven’t done an IMM post in a little while, but this week was too good of a book week not to share. Plus, I want to get back into the habit of doing IMM posts. 🙂 Anyway, here is what I received this week:

*The Guardian (Shadowlands Series: Book One) by CJ Gosling (courtesy of Brighter Books. Thanks!)
Wither by Lauren DeStefano (Thank you, Simon and Schuster!)
Faerie Winter by Janni Lee Simner
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Drought by Pam Bachorz
Starstruck by Cyn Balog
Siren’s Storm by Lisa Papademetriou
*This link will take you to the author’s blog page for the book. All the other links will take you to the book’s GoodReads page, where you can find the synopsis for the title.
And just to catch up on previous weeks, I recently have received/bought:
Clarity by Kim Harrington (yay!!) –> ARC
Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (bought–I love discount bookstores)
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan (courtesy of Scholastic)
I am really excited to read all of these, but I’m over the moon that I was able to get a copy of Across the Universe! A friend of mine received an extra, so she kindly gave it to me. But I’m also really excited to read The Guardian because Ms. Gosling is a new author and the publisher, Brighter Books, have been extremely kind in helping me receive a copy to review. Also, look out for an interview with Erin McCahan in the relatively near future. 🙂
 I can’t wait to see what everyone else got this week!

    Ooh, great books this week! 😀 Across the Universe looks so great, as does Wither. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on those two.

    And it’s cool that you’re an aspiring writer (me, too!), where are you up in the process? Hope you get a chance to swing by my blog, as I love connecting with other writers who are blogging about books 🙂

    What a wonderful mailbox! I really, really want Across the Universe now. I do have my copy pre-ordered and just need to be patient until January. But I’m not at all patient. The rest of your books sound good too. My YA Mailbox is here. Happy reading!
