In My Mailbox (24)

21 Apr

April 22, 2012

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!

Just a couple of gems this week, guys! Onwards to my unintentionally school-themed mailbox!


Book cover for The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy by Nikki Loftin

The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy by Nikki Loftin (August 21, 2012 from Razorbill). MIDDLE GRADE! Mystery! Plucky heroine! Missing friends and mysterious teachers! Yes too all of these things. 

Book cover for Dark Companion by Marta Acosta

Dark Companion by Marta Acosta (July 3, 2012 from Tor Teen). More crazy business at a school, friends. In fact, these two NetGalley books sound more similar than I realized: mysterious happenings, secrets, etc. I LOVE IT ALL. 

(Big kisses to Razorbill and Tor Teen for these two books!)


Book cover for The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats

The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats. So I didn’t actually GET this book this week. In fact, I’ve already reviewed it. But I forgot to shout it out in my last mailbox, and I have to mention it so that I can give a virtual high-five to Tara from Fiction Folio for running the ARC tour for this book. *high-fives Tara* Thanks, Tara!

Loving my short but sweet mailbox, my dears. Hope yours were just as FAB!

    I really like the cover of the first book. It looks like a freeze frame of an opening thing you would see in an awesome cartoon.

    Looks like you’ve got some great books. The cover of The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy really caught my attention – it looks brilliant. Hope you enjoy reading all of them.

    Oh yay for The Sinister Sweetness! I’m totally jealous, I requested it, but I’m not sure I’ll get approved because I don’t think I’m hip enough for Penguin. Enjoy!
