In My Mailbox 17th June 2012

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where we can show off the books we have gotten over the past week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped, or given for review.
This feature was started to showcase our books, to improve our awareness of all the books coming out, and to increase interactions between book bloggers. 

I got some amazing books this week. I got...

From the library:

  • The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis. This is one that has been on my wishlist for a while, described as " a dark, haunting, contemporary story that is part mystery, part romance, and part melodrama."

  • Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I have read so many amazing reviews and seen so many bloggers gushing about this series. I have to read it to see if it lives up to the hype!

  • Apocalypse Cow by Michael Logan. Zombie Cows! This sounds very funny, (even the title and cover crack me up), and very unique. I owe this one to the great review at Mel's Random Reviews

  • White Horse by Alex Adams. Another one I've been waiting for for a while. This is a post-disaster survival story, focusing on a pregnant woman's struggle to get back to her husband. 

  • Blood Rights by Kristen Painter. This is the first book in a series about courtly vampires. I've heard a few good things about it, so I'm looking forward to reading it. 

For Review:

  • Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel. OH EM GEE! How excited am I to get a copy of this! Squee! This is book 2 in the Gone With The Respiration series. The first one is titled Dearly, Departed, and I absolutely loved it. It won my Best Of The Bunch award for November 2011. It is a futuristic steampunk zombie romance- four words that you'd never think would go in a sentence together- but it works!
Thanks to Del Ray and Netgalley for the review copy. (This is the American cover, due to be published in September 2012. )

  • The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clare. This a story of pirates, assassins, magic, and adventure. It sounds thrilling, unique and charming. I'm looking forward to reading it. 
Thanks to Strange Chemistry and Netgalley for the review copy. This is due to be published in October 2012.

I'm so pleased with all the books I got this week- what did you get?
Happy reading!
