In My Mailbox 9

In My Mailbox was created by  The Story Siren. The idea is for book bloggers to come together once a week and post what books they have received in the mail/purchased/found at the library/borrowed from a friend. Anyone can participate!


I've been awfully lazy about IMM posts lately, but this week I had 3 awesome books show up on my doorstep, all from jolly old England. Therefore this week's IMM is officially and respectfully dedicated to the Brits - God Save the Queen!:)

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

I won this one in a contest...I can't for the life of me remember the source, but whoever you are that hosted the giveaway, thank you!

Small Blue Thing

Small Blue Thing by S. C. Ransom

This is a review copy from Nosy Crow...I have heard good things about this one. You can't tell from the picture, but the cover is partially foiled and it's beautiful with all the shades of blue and silver.

Across the Universe

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Now this one is a complete showed up in a Book Depository envelope,and there was a name, but a Google search of said name turned up nothing, as did a search with my name and the book title. Ergo, I'm assuming I must have entered a contest for this one and forgot all about it...then I won and the shipper forgot to tell me I won? Anyway, it's the UK version, with the white in between the boy and the girl instead of the stars, and it's also in paperback. I already have the hardcover, so I'm not quite sure what to do with this one...but I am delighted and super thankful to whomever sent it to me!

Also this week, I ordered a few books for my Kindle:

Poison StudyCryer's CrossCamille

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

I've heard quite a few good things about this series, so I figured I would give it a try...

Cryer's Cross by Lisa Mcmann

I bought this for kindle vs. in hardcover because I wanted to see what the big deal was about the new kindle editions with audio/video. Review to come, but the verdict in a nutshell? Not worth it.

Camille by Tess Oliver

I can't resist a $.99 book...this is by a relatively unknown author, but the story sounded intriguing. We shall see!

And finally, at the library I picked up:

The Oracle of Stamboul: A Novel

The Oracle of Stamboul by Michael David Lukas

What did you get this week? Feel free to leave your IMM links in the comments!

Waiting on Wednesday: City of Fallen Angels

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait to read! On occasion, I will feature a book that has already been published, but that I am eagerly anticipating anyway. I figure that still counts:)

City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments, Book 4)

by Cassandra Clare

“City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.”

I've been waiting on this one ever since I finished the third Mortal Instruments book...and my anticipation just went through the roof today after I read the first chapter on the Mortal Instruments site. It's due out April 5th...let the countdown begin!
