In My Mailbox 8th April 2012

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.

I got some amazing books this week- check 'em out!

Bought:


  • The Calling by Kelley Armstrong. Goodreads. I absolutely adore this author's young adult series. This is book 2 in the Darkness Rising series, and I can't wait to start reading it after the cliffhanger ending of book 1. I've been stroking the cover all week!   I love that this title was was released here in the UK before it is in the US. I feel like chanting "Na na nanaa naaaa!" (But I won't)   :D





Kindle Bargains:

  • Pretty When She Dies by Rhinannon Frater. Goodreads. Thanks to the nagging  encouragement of certain bloggers who shall remain nameless (*Cough* Bookish Brunette *Cough cough* Xpresso Reads) who continually rave about how awesome this author is, I downloaded this title when it was on sale this week. This is a vampire book, and it does actually sound pretty good. 




For Review:

  • Yesterday by C.K Kelly Martin. Goodreads. This sounds so good- it's a dystopian story, with visions of the future, and has been described as a dark sci-fi adventure. 
This is due to be published in September. Thanks to Random House and Netgalley for the review copy.





  • Flutter by Gina Linko. Goodreads. This is about a girl who suffers with seizures (or so everyone thinks) when actually she experiences something like time travel loops to mysterious places. Described as a sci-fi romance this looks very exciting.
This is due to be published in October. Thanks to Random House and Netgalley for the review copy. 




So those were the books I got to read this week. What did you get?
Happy reading!

  6. Haha I didn't realise we got The Calling first. I may read it quicker but I don't want to wait a year for the ending. Her adult books work well standalone but I think her YA books are best read in one go.
