In my Mailbox #4

12 Jun

Over the past three weeks I’ve received some really awesome books. Things have been slower book wise, compared to the insanity of BEA. But I am actually thankful for that! My TBR pile has taken over our dining room table, and is not dwindling anywhere near quickly enough. I’ve gotten some great books recently, including some highly anticipated sequels (a few that have cut to the front of the line in my TBR pile!).

FOR REVIEW:

IMM #4 -- 3
Supernaturally by Kiersten White (!!) and Hereafter by Tara Hudson. Via Harper Teen.

I’ve been waiting forever for Supernaturally. Reading it now, and of course, loving it. I’ve heard really good things about the ghost story in Hereafter as well!

IMG_0805IMM #4 --7
Forgotten by Cat Patrick, and Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. Via Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

Two more books I’ve heard some great buzz about. Forgotten is a mystery, and Spoiled is by the hilarious Fug Girls.

PURCHASED:
IMM #4 --4
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma. Found @ Strand– over a week early!

Can’t wait to read this. And seriously, that cover is one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen.

IMM #4 --6
Starcrossed by Jospephine Angelini.

After reading an E-Galley, I really wanted a signed copy of this book. Sadly, the Dark Days of Supernatural tour isn’t coming anywhere near NYC. I’m not sure why big book tours keep neglecting the entire East Coast, but it’s pretty annoying! Luckily, Josie (who is amazingly nice) offered to sign a copy for me if I had it sent to her. Her signature is so cute:

IMM #4 --5

Not pictured: Hexed by Kevin Hearne

GIFTED/OTHER:

IMM #4 --2
National Geographic Complete Photography.

My Dad bought this for my 29th birthday last month. Since it was a special order, it just arrived this week! I can’t wait to read it.

IMM #4-- 1
The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy. Via Paperback Swap.

I have been wanting to read this forever. It finally popped up on Paperback Swap this week—along practically with every other book I’ve ever requested (Of course they show up when I run out of credits). Summer seems to be popular with book swappers.

I’m really starting to feel like I need a clone, so I can read and review everything much faster! 😉

Thank you to Harper Teen, Little, Brown and Josephine Angelini for making my 4th edition of IMM AWESOME!

    Oh, I like your new comment form.

    Also totes Jealous of Spoiled.

    And Forgotten is pretty decent, a really quick read. I’d move it toward the top!

      Thanks! I didn’t change anything though, I think wordpress just updated it on its own. Hahah!
      Glad to hear Forgotten is good. I could use a good mystery, so I wil definitely read it soon. I’ve heard Spoiled is hilarious!
