In My Mailbox #34 - The Mountain of Books Edition

Sunday, July 24, 2011


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


I received a massive amount of books and pretty much all on the same day squashed into my mailbox.  I am definitely one lucky gal this week!


FOR REVIEW:
Cargo by Jessica Au -Aussie contemp YA debut.  Described on the back cover as "heart-wrenching, beautiful and explosive".  This has jumped to top of my reading pile.  Thanks to Picador (Pan Macmillan Australia).
Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - Sequel to Raised by Wolves.  This is probably my favourite werewolves series.  This is coming out in August in Australia (already out in US) so I am excited to get an early copy.  Thanks to Quercus (Pan Macmillan Australia).
Original Sin by Lisa Descrochers - Sequel to Personal Demons.  YA paranormal about angels.  Thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia.
In The Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane - YA paranormal.  Loving the different Aussie cover.  Thanks to Harlequin Teen Australia.
The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter - YA debut that is a fresh take on Greek mythology.  Already read this and it is fantastic.  Anybody notice that the Aussie cover is very similar to two other covers?  Thanks to Harlequin Teen Australia.
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder - YA dystopia novel.  I have heard amazing things about this series and Maria is coming to Australia soon so I need to get my read on.  Thanks to Harlequin Teen Australia.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - YA fantasy that I am sure we all have heard off.  I have also heard there is a very swoon worthy romance in it.  Thanks to Harlequin Teen Australia.

WON:
Dark Heart Forever by Lee Monroe -  YA paranormal.  Thanks to the Winter Flings competition.
Momentum by Saci Lloyd - YA dystopia.  Thanks to Winter Flings competition.
Forgotten by Cat Patrick - YA contemp.  I am so excited to win this after Missie's book boyfriend post.  Thanks to Lisa @ Badass Bookie.

GIFTED:
The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan - YA paranormal.  Second book in the series.  This was a lovely surprise thanks to an amazing friend.

BOOK TOUR:
Intrinsical by Lani Woodland - YA ghost supernatural story.  Already finished this and it was awesome.  Thanks to Alexa.

Lots of books! :D Okay, so out of these I've only read...Poison Study and Intrinsical. I liked both of those. Really glad you liked Intrinsical. ;D Hope you enjoy the rest of your books! :) I don't think I've ever heard of Cargo and Momentum; curious to know what you think about them.

Brett @ Demons Read Too said...

You got some awesome books. Can't wait for Trial by Fire, I loved the first book. The Demon's Lexicon series possibily my favourite, hope you enjoy Covenant.

Emily said...

Awesome haul Nic! I have Poison Study sitting on my shelf. I've been seeing Inside Out everywhere lately - just realised it's by the same author haha. Can't wait to see what you think of them all :)

Audrey (holes In My brain) said...

Cargo! I have never actually heard of it, but 1. Aussie contemp. 2. that blurb! AGH I think I'm gonna be seriously jealous when you read it :p What awesome bookishness, have you read THe Demon's Lexicon?? YOU SHOULD =) happy reading!!

Missie said...

oooooh! I'm so curious about what you'll think of Forgotten. Some people really like it, others don't.

And I'm glad that Cargo jumped to the top of the list because it looks good and I can't wait to hear more about it.

You've got an awesome mountain of books to climb, Nic. Have fun.

Lux (The Paperback Heart) said...

Great haul this week, Nic!
Even though the aussie Goddess Test cover has the same image as a few other books, I still really like the cover. Although, honestly I didn't really like the book!
I'm interested hear what you think of Forgotten. I've read so many mixed reviews.

Lux (The Paperback Heart) said...

Chel said...

I got Forgotten this week too but I must say I like the version you have better. Great haul! Happy reading. :)

I wonder why they chose that image for the Australian cover of The Goddess Test - very interesting! But there are some books here I haven't heard of that I must check out. Hope you enjoy them all :)

Here's what I received in my mailbox this week :)

Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings) said...

Wow! you got some pretty awesome looking loot and I look forward to your reviews, particularly of the Ausie authors :D

Enjoy yer books

Good Golly Miss Holly said...

FORGOTTEN is so amazing, make sure to read it first :)

Jammie said...

I have read all of the books in the Poison Study series. I really liked them, it was different. Not like anything I have previously read. I really want to get Inside Out, I keep seeing it at the shop and I want to buy it, it sounds very interesting. And I bought Forgotten a couple of weeks ago with Divergent. I loved Divergent but I am yet to read Forgotten :)

Cialina at Muggle-Born.net said...

Wow! I almost didn't recognize that cover for the Goddess Test! Yup, looks very familiar indeed. :P

Aleeza said...

eee, awesome haul, nic!

but OMG, the aussie cover for the goddess test is uncannily similar to the cover for the vespertine's cover (by saundra mitchell). it's the same image, basically--just different colors!

i don't know, but i think that's just wrong, you know?

anywayyyy, enjoy the books!

here's what i got in my mailbox!"
