In My Mailbox 27th November 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where book bloggers can talk about the books they've gotten the past week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped or given for review. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and to increase our awareness of all the new books coming out.

Bought:

  • Between by Cyndi Tefft (kindle edition). I've seen so many positive reviews on this book, I've finally caved in and bought it!


  • Exiled by M.R Merrick (kindle edition). This has been on my wishlist for ages, and I keep entering contests to win a copy and not had any luck. This week the author posted a one day only discount code, so I got it for a bargain! I have seen so many 5 star reviews of this book- can't wait to read it.


From the Library:


  • Angel Fire by L.A Weatherly.  Yes! Finally! This is the sequel to Angel which I absolutely loved, and it seems like it's taken forever for this book to come out! Definitely going to be reading this one next.


  • Muse by Rebecca Lim. This is book 3 in the Mercy series. I'm starting to like this series about an angel who jumps into random bodies to try to sort out a problem in their life. Part romance, part mystery and I'm intrigued to find out what happens next.


Audiobook:

  • Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. This looks like an emotional read driven by the characters. A contemporary story about a girl whose mother suffers with depression. There are so many recommendations for this book and the sequel The Piper's Son.






For Review:
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Ok- a futuristic cyborg Cinderella story? There was no way I was going to take a second glance at this, but I have since seen so many fantastic reviews on blogs that I'm way too intrigued not to read it now! Thanks fellow bloggers!
This is due to be published in January 2012. Thanks to Macmillan publishers and Netgalley for the review copy.





Those were the books I got this week- what did you get in your mailbox?
Happy reading!

  11. Haha, I'm jealous that your library has books like that! If our library had anything that recent I think I'd drop dead of shock!

    Cinder is supposed to be brilliant though; can't wait to read your review!

  12. Saving Francesca is amazing. If you haven't read Melina Marchetta before you are in for a treat, and once you've begun you won't be able to stop.

    ~Happy Reading!
