In My Mailbox (3)

November 20, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!

I can’t lie, guys. This week’s IMM is thin, but I still got some great books to read. Some are new, some are a little old, but I’m psyched for all of them. Let’s get down to business!


Sisters of Glass, by Stephanie Hemphill (May 8, 2012 from Knopf). I actually have another of Stephanie Hemphill’s books on my currently reading pile, WICKED GIRLS, which is a story in verse about the Salem witch trials. THIS book, though, is a historical fiction set in Italy among Venetian glassblowers. Sounds great! Plus I think the cover is pretty!


Torn: Torn Trilogy, book 1, by Erica O’Rourke (June 28, 2011 from Kensington). This one sounds great. The murder of a best friend reveals dangerous secrets and magic and two–count ’em, TWO–yummy boys!

Brightest Kind of Darkness: Brightest Kind of Darkness, book 1, by P.T. Michelle (June 27, 2011 from Patrice Michelle). This book sounds fantastic. It’s about a 16-year-old girl who dreams every night of what will happen the following day. Obviously, this leads to problems. Problems that I want to read about, please!

Deadly Little Secret: Touch, book 1 (December 23, 2008 from Hyperion). So, I’m behind the times with this one, I know. (This series currently has four books out already, and the fifth one is out next year.) But it sounds right up my alley, so I nabbed an ebook for my Kindle and am ready to get started!

Amber Frost: The Lost Magic, book 1, by Suzi Davis. The second book in this series, SILVER DEW, is coming out next month, and the books sound so intriguing that I had to get on ’em. This one, AMBER FROST, is about a young girl who moves to a new city and meets a mysterious boy. There seem to be hints at past lives and forgotten pasts and other awesomeness. Also, strange tattoos. I can’t even!

That’s it for me this time around! Any oldies but goodies in your mailboxes this week?

    The cover of Sisters of Glass is pretty! Looking forward to hearing what you think of that one. I liked Maria V. Snyder’s Glass series about glass blowers and I wouldn’t mind reading more about that art. Brightest Kind of Darkness does sound intriguing too.
    Enjoy your new reads!

    I love your blog header picture! The bookshelf is so pack and so worn out looking, its awesome. My bookshelf is the exact same way. My dad is constantly telling me to organize it because it looks all messy, but as long as I’m living I will never organize it. Well… to me it is organized I know where everything is! I just love how cluttered looks

      Isn’t the cover pretty? I can’t quite figure out what it means (I see birds and ribbons and a gondola, I think), but it certainly catches my eye. And it’s funny that you asked about whether or not this is in verse because I was wondering that myself and kept forgetting to check. It is indeed in verse. I hope I like it!! I sometimes have a hard time with books in verse.

      I saw you mention it yesterday on Twitter, so I investigated and then discovered that it sounds AMAZING. It’s only 99 cents on Amazon! So thank you!

    I haven’t read anything by Stephanie Hemphill yet. Looks like my thing though, so I have to check it out. Brightest Kind of Darkness is going on my list right now! Thanks for sharing.
