Me on In My Mailbox (37)

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

It feels weird to say it's September, especially since I told myself I'd finish a book idea I've been working on since March by the end of September. I could write a chapter a day, but I've noticed I get drained easily if I write every day. *sigh* Still. I expanded my outline of what I have left to write (21 chapters at about 2200 words a chapter), which is good because it's giving me a better idea of where I'm going. Plus I have a fun idea for a contemporary YA novel.

But you guys would rather I talk about books. ;)

I'm going to a signing in BC on October 1st (this one), a signing in Alderwood on October 12th (this one), and maybe a signing in Seattle on November 4th (this one that I might go to only because of Tara Kelly & her October release Amplified). Which one would you rather win a book from?? And it's important that you answer because whichever gets the most votes will be the one I get a signed book from for a giveaway. And I'll be using Rafflecopter. :)

Update: I just found out Tera Lynn Childs (Oh. My. Gods., Forgive My Fins, Sweet Venom) is having a signing in Seattle on Sept 21st. *head-desk* I want to go but I probably won't. And James Dashner is coming up to Vancouver for The Death Cure at some point. Not sure when, though, and it's possible I won't go even though it's local. I don't have his books, but I've read The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials. Both were really good.

Possess by Gretchen McNeil (caved & bought online because Chapters doesn't have it in stores yet, which is why I've had both Lola and the Boy Next Door & Shatter Me pre-ordered since early June)
Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly (reviewed here, I've borrowed it twice from the library, it deserved a buy)
Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn (these next three are historical romances, they won't be reviewed or anything but I figured I'd include them since I did buy them)
The Reckless Bride by Stephanie Laurens
Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue by Stephanie Laurens

Received from HarperCollins Canada (I love them so much, they're so nice, especially Shannon, getting early Friday evening book mail makes me feel all spoiled):
Eve by Anna Carey
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

To read and review: Wolfsbane (maybe, it keeps getting pushed back), Possess, The Mephisto Covenant (even though I've had it for weeks), Past Present (maybe), Crave (definitely, since I requested it on NetGalley), Eve, Carrier of the Mark, and The Pledge (not in a rush to read it since it's not out for 2 & a half months).


  1. I just read Possess this week, I really loved it and will be posting my review up tomorrow :)
    Julia Quinn is great, I love her books.
    I can't wait till eve comes out! So very excited to read it!

    my IMM can be found:

  2. Great Mailbox! Eve and Carrier of the Mark are taunting me from my TBR shelf right now. I can't wait to dive in.

    Lucky you going to signings in the fall. I am trying to see if there are any near me coming up.

  3. The Stages on Pages tour sounds very cool! I would totally go to see Jessica Martinez and Tara Kelly!

    I still have 'Eve' from Netgalley to read. I was so excited for it before, but for some reason I've been putting it off.

    Enjoy your books! =)

  4. I really want to read Eve! It sounds great. I hope you enjoy your books!
