In My Mailbox (108)

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

After the past few crazy weeks, it was nice to get back to a regular schedule this week, and best of all, with this week came some pretty amazing news. For one, as you may already know, I read an early copy of Melissa Walker's Small Town Sinners (an AMAZING book!) last summer, because I was asked to share to my thoughts on it, and guess what- I have a blurb featured in the ARC of the book, which is shown below. It even includes my last name, which is also truly amazing! And second of all, I was one out of many bloggers featured in the newest issue of VOYA. To see it, click on this link and then go to pages 26 and 27.

Anyhow, enough chit-chat, let's get to the books of the week. I do admit I got some pretty awesome ones (Amy Reed's Clean!) and I seriously can't wait to read and review them for you all! But enough about me, what did you get this week? Anything cool? Let me know in comments, or link to your own IMM post, because I would love to know what you received as well!

For Review:

The Dark City (Relic Master, #1)by Catherine Fisher (You should have seen the package this one came in, it was so awesome. It had confetti and stickers on the box. Anyhow, this one looks fabulous, and I've heard so many awesome things about Ms. Fisher, so I can't wait to read it!)
Madame Tussaud: A Novel of the French Revolution by Michelle Moran (As of lately I've been really liking all the historical fiction books I've been reading, so hopefully this one continues the trend!)
Textual Healing by Eric Smith (This one is about an author, which I think is so cool. Can't wait to read it!)
The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card + bag (I've heard mixed reviews about this one, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I'll think about it.)
The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond by Victoria Foyt  + magnet (This was released a few years back but I'm still looking forward to reading it!)
Summer (Beautiful Dead, #3) by Eden Maguire (Yay! I adore this series, even though it is somewhat sad.)
The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan (Looks scary and thrilling! Better yet, I'll be part of a blog tour for it March so look out for my review, interview with Savita, and giveaway for a copy!)
Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker
Here's a picture of my blurb:

eBooks for Review:

In the Storm by Karen Metcalf (I love how this one is a short story.)
Clean by Amy Reed (I've heard so many spectacular things about Amy Reed so I can't wait to read this one!)

Much thanks goes to Galley Grab, Karen Metcalf, Michelle Moran + Crown Publishing, Eric Smith, Victoria Foyt and Chaton, Savita Kalhan, Kay at Source Books, the people at Penguin, and Tracey at Media Masters Publicity!

Have a great week everyone! :)
