In My Mailbox: Week 73

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

This week I got a bunch of books that I've been dying to read! And let me tell you, I'm so, so, so very excited to read them!

Around The World Tour:

Siren by Tricia Rayburn (Pretty good...review will be up this upcoming Friday.)
The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride (Amazing. Look for my review this upcoming Tuesday!)

Review:


Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala (I can't even begin to express in words just how excited I am about this one! Figers crossed that it's as amazing as I think it'll be. Thanks, HarperTeen!)
And Then I Found Out the Truth by Jennifer Struman (Loved the prequel to this one so I'm hoping this one is just as great! Thanks TKPublicRelations!)
Gigged by Heath Gibson (Not my typical read but I'm looking forward to reading it. It's a debut, by the way. Thanks Courtney!)
The Stormchasers by Jenna Blum (Again not my typical read but it looks spectacular! Thanks Tala!)
Never After by Dan Elconin (I've heard a bunch of amazing things about this one. Thanks Dan!)
Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart (A surprise from the lovely people at HarprCollins! It looks great, and there's a high possibility that Ms. Hart may be a guest here on Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf soon. Though it's not set in stone yet.)
Tales from a Not-So-Popular Party Girl by Rachel Renée Russell + gift bag (It's official; I love Simon and Schuster! I mean, seriously how cool is the packaging of this one? It makes me want to read the book even sooner, which is what I'm sure they're aiming for! :) Thanks Simon and Schuster! You never cease to amaze me with your generosity!) Also to give you a better look what was contained in side:


The Won:


Wicked: Witch & Curse (Wicked, #1-2) by Nancy Holder, Debbie Viguié + Wicked 2: Legacy & Spellbound (Wicked, #3-4) Nancy Holder, Debbie Viguié (I won this from Writer's Block Reviews, thanks Holly! I've heard great things about this series, so I'm looking forward to checking it out!)
Tell Me a Secret Prize pack (I love the fact that the week I get a surprise review copy of thisI also get a prize pack for the novel. Irony never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, thanks Holly/ Princess Bookie! I love the pack, and the CD is great as well.)

The Bought:

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead (LOVE Vampire Academy!!)
Jump by by Elisa Carbone (I've heard got a lot of great things about this one around blogging world, so I'm looking forward to checking it out!)

From Library/ Gift:

The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell (Looks good!)
Airhead: Runaway T-Shirt that reads " The Paparazzi Have Just Gotten So Out of Control!" (Very cute! Thanks Chelsy!)


Overall: What an amazing week! Though enough about me, what did you all get this week? Anything similar to me?

  1. You got some amazing books this week, I don't even really know where to start, because I think I would probably want to read every single one of them.

    Tell Me a Secret sounds absolutly amazing, I really hope it's as good as it sounds, can't wait to read your review.

    I've heard a lot of things about Jennifer Strumans books, I think I may just have to read them, because every review i've read is brilliant.

    Anyway...
    Gosh, I'm jealous since you had such an awesome week! TELL ME A SECRET is a title I'd kill for, and SPIRIT BOUND as well (although I've already finished it!).
    Have an awesome rest of the week, Lauren.
    Love, Hannah
