In My Mailbox (106 & 107)

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

First off, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who left a comment on my post last Saturday. Your comments were so heartfelt, and not only did I love reading them but I appreciate them very much as well. As for me, I'm doing better with the whole thing. It takes time to overcome deaths of loved ones, though I'm starting to find that the antidote (so to say) is to remember all the good times you had with them.

Anyhow, on to fun blog related stuff. I got a bunch of really amazing books this week in the mail like Veronica Roth's Divergent!  Please excuse while I go squeal some more. ;) Okay back. As always can't wait to see what you all got this week as well as your comments!

For Review:

The Bird House by Kelly Simmons (In the midst of reading this one and as of now I'm really enjoying it!)
Almost True by Keren David (I really enjoyed When I Was Joe so I can't wait to see what's up next for Joe and his family and friends.)
The Midnight Tunnel (Suzanna Snow, #1) by Angie Frazier (LOVED Angie debut YA last year, so I cant' wait to see what  this one will be like.)
Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper (I've been in the mood for some historical fiction so this one looks like it will hit the spot perfectly.)
The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy edited by Leah Wilson (Intrigued by this.)
The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood (I haven't read the first in this series yet, though as I've read some of Maryrose's previous books I'm sure this one and its prequel will manage to be amazing.)
The Iron Witch (The Iron Witch Saga, #1) by Karen Mahoney (Read this one as soon as I got, and oh my gosh, it was so good! You all must buy it ASAP.)
Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin (Just finished this one as well. It was okay...)
Priscilla the Great by Sybil Nelson (Looks really cute!)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (All I can say is that this better be as AMAZING as what I've been told.)


From Netgalley:

In Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane (This one sounds different than the average YA so I can't wait to see what I think about it.)


Bought for Nook:

Legacy (Ganzfield, #3)by Kate Kaynak
Guardian of the Gate (Prophecy of the Sisters, #2) by Michelle Zink

I recently began reading both of this series ^^ (Ganzfield and Prophecy of the Sisters) and I've been really impressed so far so I can't wait to dive into these ones.

Happy reading! :)

  15. Hi love! Glad to see you're feeling a bit better. It definitely does take time.

    Glad to hear you are liking THE BIRD HOUSE. I got it this week, and it didn't orginally sound like the type of book I normally read, but we'll see.

    And YAY for DIVERGENT!

    Here's what's in my mailbox this week!

  17. Ooh, you got Divergent! I hope it's as good as everyone says as well. Fingers crossed.

    I loved Fallen Grace when I read it, and I'm currently half way through Almost True. If you liked WIWJ, as you did, you'll like this one too. Keren's writing is so easy to read, if that makes sense. Brilliant books.

    Have a good week!
