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!
Got some FAB stuff this week for the Debut Author Challenge ARC tour and some SWEET deals for mah Kindle. Woot!
FROM THE DAC ARC TOUR
I have been SO LUCKY with the books I’ve gotten/will be getting for the DAC ARC tours. I’m seriously psyched about all of them, including these three!
Above World: Above World #1, by Jenn Reese (February 14, 2012 from Candlewick). Finished this one already, friends, and it was some SOLID middle-grade sci-fi/dystopian. Very clever and zippy. Review going up soon!
Unraveling: Unraveling #1, by Elizabeth Norris (April 24, 2012 from Balzer + Bray). Reading this one now and, guys? IT’S AWESOME. It sucked me right in. And according to the authoress herself, there will be MOAR. As much as I would LOVE to see a book like this as a stand-alone just for funsies, I can’t say that I’m not JAZZED to the extreme that there will be more Janelle and Ben. And I’m not even finished with it yet.
The Catastrophic History of You and Me, by Jess Rothenberg (February 21, 2012 from Dial Books). JUST got this one in the mail and YAY! I’ve been looking forward to reading this book about a girl who literally dies of a broken heart for AGES. Can’t wait!
The Highlander’s Sword and The Highlander’s Heart: Highlander #1-2, by Amanda Forester. These were some cheap goodies for the kindle, and I can’t think of anything that sounds bad about either of them right now, mostly because THERE’S SCOTTISH MEN who wear kilts in them. My weakness for kilts and guys who say things like “och” and “aye lass” knows no end. I have high hopes for these two!
I hope you guys got some great things in your mailboxes this week!!
