Me on In My Mailbox (27)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. :)

Last week was a no book week and a weird late spring/early summer pollen/grass/cottonwood allergy kind of deal. It sucked so much. :( This week could've been better if it weren't for the Canada Post employees being locked out. There's no mail delivery now. Bastards. Someone mailed me an ARC of The Near Witch about 2 weeks ago, but did it happen to arrive before the lockout?? Of course not. I'd mentioned online I was finally able find a copy of Phoebe Kitanidis' Whisper at the library earlier this month and Phoebe said she was going to mail me a copy with no pressure to review it. I hope she didn't send it. (She didn't. *phew*)

Next week will be odd. I go back to the hospital Monday morning to get a screw taken out of my formerly broken ankle. Fun.
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Received from HarperCollins Canada:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Sweet Venom by Tera Lyn Childs
Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz
The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon

I only recently contacted publishers about requesting ARCs to review. Like, beginning of the month recently. And after e-mailing a wonderful girl at HC Canada a few times, I was so surprised to see UPS drop off a package late Friday afternoon. So surprised my hands were shaking.


  1. So many fabulous books! I'm reallllly looking forward to Shatter Me!

  2. YAY! I have to say that HC Canada has pretty awesome reps. I don't accept a lot to review but if I have a question about something the person I deal with is FANTASTIC.

    Um.. and good luck with the screw removal! Eep.

  3. Fantastic books. I can't wait til Shatter Me comes out as well, it sounds great! I love the cover of Imaginary Girls and Hourglass! I look foward to what you think of them. New follower! Here's what i got this week:
    Happy reading!

  4. Awesome haul! Don't be a stranger; stop by my blog and say hi!

  5. Great set! I really want to read Hourglass and Sweet Venom.
