In My Mailbox (36)

July 15, 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!

This week’s mailbox is brought to you by Amy’s Amazon Visa! (And one from NetGalley.) Seriously, it’s getting a smidge out of hand over here. Although let’s be serious: the day I stop buying books is one of the signs of the apocalypse; keep your fingers crossed that this never happens, friends. 

NETGALLEY

book cover for The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke

The Assassin’s Curse: The Assassin’s Curse # 1 by Cassandra Rose Clarke (October 2, 2012 from Ctrange Chemistry). WHOA. Assassins? Check. Pirates? Check. Magic? Check. Middle Eastern-like setting? Check. THREE IMPOSSIBLE TASKS TO COMPLETE TO SAVE THE LIFE OF THE ASSASSIN MEANT TO KILL YOU (WHO INEVITABLY BECOMES THE LOVE INTEREST, RIGHT?)? CHECK! If I hadn’t seen this one on Heidi’s IMM last week, I might have missed it. But I didn’t. THANKFULLY.

BOUGHT

Sorry for the craptastic picture…used my phone.

Seraphina: Seraphina #1 by Rachel Hartman. Guys, I have been looking forward to this debut fantasy for a long time. First of all, the cover is so gorgeous, I can’t even deal. It’s a WOODBLOCK engraving. I mean…. Plus, there’s dragons in this book. I can’t wait to dive in.

Insignia: Insignia #1 by S.J. KincaidThis one has been getting all kinds of mad love lately. It’s not something that would usually immediately grab my attention, but it’s definitely been on my radar: gaming, virtual reality, a military academy, and World War Three. I’m thinking that this one is going to be LEGIT.

That’s it for me this week, guys! Small but still AWESOME, right?! Hope you guys got some super stuff this week, too!

    Great books! I saw Seraphina at the bookstore this past week and almost bought it! Now I wish I did!

    I hope you enjoy all your reads!

    Ooh I’ve heard so many good things about Insignia! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! It’s gotten so many reviews by people who were really surprised they liked it 🙂

    Ahhh!!! I am so excited for ALL THE BOOKS. Seriously, I want, no NEED to read each one of these asap. I’m SO glad you saw The Assassin’s Curse on my blog, because you will love it for real (she says with authority not having read it yet herself). Did you see the comparison to Zuko?! Because you need to read this:

    I’m SO JEALOUS that you have Seraphina and Insignia already. I’m going to get them as well, but I have a signing tomorrow, so it’ll have to wait :p

    Seraphina and Insignia have both been making my book radar go off. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS TO READ
