In My Mailbox: Week 74

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

Even though I didn't have the chance to go to BEA this year and get a ton of amaizing books (*cue sad face*), I still did get several fablous ones through the mail and library.

For Review/Giveway Copies:



Girl Parts by John M. Cusick (I'm really looking forward to reading this. It looks fabulous! Thanks Laura/Candlewick!)
Insatiable by Meg Cabot (I LOVE Meg Cabot, so as you can probably image, I am stoked to read this novel! Thanks Pam/Harper Collins!)
A Golden Web by Barbara Quick (This one will be given away here to tomorrow, so be sure to check back to enter! Though I think I will give it a read before the winner is picked; it just looks too good to pass up! Thanks Elyse @ HarperTeen!)
Salvaged by Stefne Miller (I just finished this one and it was AMAZING! It truly ended up surprising me in some big ways, though more on that later. And lucky enough for all my readers out there I'll be interviewing Stefne soon and giving away my SIGNED copy of Salvaged, even though it's going to pain me to do so.)
Summer Sanctuary by Laurie Gray (I love the cover of this one. It's so pretty yet very simple. Thanks Marygleen!)
Ghost Huntress Book 3: The Reason by Marley Gibson (I haven't read the first two, though I just ordered the first one from the library and have the second one already in my TBR pile, so I shall hopefully be getting to them shortly. Thanks Graphia!)
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness (I haven't heard anything but amazing things about this series, so I'm looking forward to reading this one, as well as the first two this summer. Thanks Laura/Candlewick!)

From Library:



Toads and Diamonds by Heather Tomlinson (I haven't heard much about this one but it looks great!)
Raven Speak by Diane Lee Wilson (Looks good! Plus I love the cover.)
The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Has a creepy looking cover.0
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Ever since I read The Summer We Read Gatsby, I've been wanting to read this novel. Lucky enough for me, my local library had a copy.)

In all, a pretty great week! I'm looking forward to reading all of these. Also, please note that there will not be an IMM posted next Sunday, since I will be in Florida for my sister's graduation, so I'll either be posting one later that week or just combining two weeks together.) Though, enough about me what did you get this week? Anything exciting? Let me know. :)

  1. I am so pleased that I'm not the only person who hasn't read the Chaos Walking series, though I do have the first two books, I really hope you enjoy them as much as everyone else seems to have. Wow, you did get some very pretty amazing books, happy reading. Hope you have fun in Florida :-)

  4. You got some great books there Lauren! I'm particularly interested in Insatiable (just ordered a copy), Girl Parts and Salvaged. And I love your cover of Monsters of Men!

    Happy reading my friend :)

  5. What a great week! Insatiable looks amazing (I'm a huge Meg Cabot fan), as do Girl Parts and Salvaged. Enjoy them all!

  6. I admire you're getting your IMM up so ... on time. Mine's always up really late. O_o Jealous of all of the books, though! I requested a copy of The Golden Web, but stupid non-working weekends...lol.

    Another coincidence: I had googled Toads and Diamonds a few days ago when I found the author on Goodreads. Our minds are, like, connected. O_O

  11. Toads and Diamonds looks pretty good, I love the cover!

  12. Some really great titles, I read Prince of Mist but didn't find it that scary, instead I if you want scary try The Morpheus Road The LIght by D.J. MacHale. It is fantastic. I really would love to get The Golden Web and Insatiable. Like you I adore all Cabot's books. Enjoy your reads.
