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 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 by Beth Revis
Now this one is a complete mystery...it 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 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 by Michael David Lukas
