In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

BOUGHT:


XVI by Julia Karr - YA dystopia fiction and 2011 debut author.  This book has such a thought provoking and interesting premise.  Can't wait to get started.
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand - YA fiction about angels.  I read this a while back thanks to Netgalley and finally picked up my own copy.  Definitely a favourite read of mine.  You can check out my review here.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen - Can you believe I have never read this well known YA contemp fiction title!  I have heard so many good things about this and thought it about time I give it a try.
Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning - (ebook not pictured) Adult paranormal.  The final book in the series.  I have already read it and my review for this series will be up soon.

WON:


Hearts of Blood by Carolyn McCray - Adult paranormal romance.  Won this ebook thanks to the lovely Misha at My Love Affair With Books.

GIVEAWAYS:

I really like the Aussie Unearthly cover, maybe b/c it fools me into thinking it's not as paranormal or something :p and The Truth About Forever is soo good!! I can't wait for you to read it :) happy reading!

I've only read 50 pages into Shadowfever and I haven't picked it back up yet. I can't get into it, plus I want to just skip the chapters from Dani's POV, lol.

Great books this week. I hope you like the other 3 books you bought, I liked them all!

Oh my gosh! What a wonderful cover for Unearthly... *pines unreasonably*

Epe! Thanks for the pimpage. :D

I love the international cover for Unearthly so much better, and I can't believe I haven't read it yet! Heard so many great things!

Oh, and can't wait to read your review for SF!

I've only read one Sarah Dessen novel myself, Along for the Ride, and I like it. Supposedly it wasn't her best so I will have to pick up more myself.

Awesome mailbox, Nic. Hope you enjoy them all.
