Me on In My Mailbox (64)

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

Hello, people who also blog and read my ramblings. ;) How are you doing?

I've extended the signed Shatter Me giveaway for another 2 weeks, so you've got until the 1st to enter. Also, some books came this week for me to give away (books sent and signed by the author), but I'm not sure when I'm going to give those ones away, considering the giveaway I'm holding right now. So, are you guys ok with waiting until April for that giveaway? These might be the last giveaways from me for a while if shipping kills me.

After reading Above last weekend I was kind of bummed about not being in Toronto for Leah Bobet's book launch/signing on the 22nd, but then Michele at Just a Lil' Lost said she'd get my copy signed so I sent it off to her. Thanks again, Michele. :)

Do you guys have any graphic novel recommendations? I'd like to read more, but I don't necessarily want to get pigeon-holed into kids comics or adult graphic novels. Middle grade and YA suggestions are welcome. Like... (thinking of an example) would Bone count?? I remember that from when I was a kid.
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen (Yes, I totally bought my own copy even though it's a paperback and looks almost the same as the ARC the author sent but it's totally different. The Chapters near me finally got some copies, and they were on the shelf, I didn't have to ask or anything.)
Half World by Hiromi Goto (In my attempt to have some reviews of books during the blog event, I picked this up. I actually read a short story by the author in my first semester at university and rather enjoyed it. Also, I've heard rumours of a signing in April.)
To review:
Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin (from Random House through NetGalley) (I might as well be auto-approved for Random House, they say yes so much to me on NetGalley. Of course, this book isn't out until September. *shoving it far back on the to-read list*)

To read & review: Kill Me Softly, The Last Princess, The Vicious Deep, Struck, The Hunt, Fated, Shadow and Bone, This is Not a Test, Never Enough, Yesterday, and Romeo Redeemed. :)


  1. Oooh yay! I am going to check the Chapters near me for The Fine Art of Truth or Dare because I want to read it. Hopefully they have some copies!

  2. Awesome haul!! I really liked The Fine Art of Truth or Dare!!

  3. I got Yesterday too but forgot to put it in my post. ha. And yeah, Random House says yes to me too all the time. They are very nice on NetGalley. <3

    I think waiting until April for the giveaway is fine. :) And I have no idea about graphic novels. Sorry. :\

    My IMM.

  4. Ohh I'm looking forward to read The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, it sounds really good!
    I always love it get finished copies of ARCs I've read.

  5. Great set! I really want to read The Fine Art of Truth and Dare. Enjoy!

  6. If you haven't read Anya's Ghost (Brosgol) or American Born Chinese (Yang), I highly recommend both of those graphic novels. I also loved Page by Paige (Gullege).
