In My Mailbox (51) / Stacking the Shelves (6)

in my mailbox stacking the shelvesNovember 10, 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! Stacking the Shelves is another weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. They’re both awesome memes and I love meeting all of you through them!

Friends, I have so many books to tell you about! Two weeks worth, in fact, and I can honestly tell you that I am BEYOND stoked about ALL of them.


book cover for hysteria by megan miranda

Amazon | Goodreads

Hysteria by Megan Miranda (February 5, 2013 from Bloomsbury). Megan Miranda’s debut, FRACTURED, was good friends. Her second book sounds just as intense: a sixteen-year-old girl can’t remember killing her boyfriend (!!), so she’s sent off to a boarding school to stew/hide/recover her memory, and she gets a STALKER of unknown variety. *chills*

Book cover for The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell

Amazon | Goodreads

The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell (January 10, 2013 from Dial). HOLY BANANAS I am so excited for this book. Debut high fantasy??? BRING IT. I can’t even. Especially since this book is blurbed as Tamora Pierce (OMG) meets George R.R. Martin (OMFG *dies*). Now, I know that those are big shoes to fill, but I’m still looking forward to reading about the political drama of high fantasy with crime families (mob what!), military academy, gladiators, AND MORE. Guys. FANTASY MAFIA. How am I supposed to deal with this?

book cover for poison by bridget zinn

Amazon | Goodreads

Poison by Bridget Zinn (March 12, 2013 from Disney Hyperion).  Friends, this book was written by a young lady who has since passed away (so sad), so unfortunately we won’t be seeing any more from Bridget Zinn. But this YA fantasy about a young potions master who tries to kill the ruler of her country but screws up and goes on the run sounds GREAT.


BIG THANKS to Tara from Hobbitsies for passing these ARCs along! Mwah!

The Vincent Boys: The Vincent Boys #1 by Abbi Glines. (Amazon | Goodreads)

I picked this one up as a storm purchase (I finished my previous read and had nothing else with me so grabbed this one at Wal-Mart out of necessity). It was ok, even though it had lots going for it: southern contemp YA w/issues etc. But I know lots of people who’ve loved it, so go give it a shot. Review coming soon.

Days of Blood and Starlight: Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2 by Laini Taylor. (Amazon | Goodreads)

DUH. THIS BOOK. I feel like I just want to make some time, no plans, no people bothering me, and just curl up and devour this one. I can’t wait to see where Karou and Akiva’s story goes from here.

Stealing Parker: Catching Jordan #2 by Miranda Kenneally. (Amazon | Goodreads)

I’m liking the fact that this book sounds like it has some ISSUES in it, i.e., knockin’ boots with a teacher/authority figure. That’s s fine line, friends.

Child of the Mountains by Mary Sue Shank. (Amazon | Goodreads)

I kind of have a thing with Appalachian stories, guys. I can’t explain it. I love the mountains and the hardships and the people. BONUS because this one is also historical fiction. Woot!

Fury: Fury #1 by Elizabeth Miles. (Amazon | Goodreads)

I’ve been wanting to read this one for awhile. Because MYTHOLOGY WINS.

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield. (Amazon | Goodreads)

Small town drama is right up my alley, and this twisty, dark-sounding book about a murder in a nowhere town sounds kind of mysterious and intense.

Masque of the Red Death: Masque of the Red Death #1 by Bethany Griffin. (Amazon | Goodreads)

A Poe-ish dystopian steampunk book about a girl who lives in a society crippled by a plague and finds solace in an underground club called the DEBAUCHERY CLUB. I’m so glad that other people make these things up, friends, because that sounds fantastic.

SO STOKED! Hope you guys love your hauls this week!

    OMG HYSTERIA. I received a copy as well and I. Can’t. Wait. I’m super pumped.

    & Masque of the Red Death.. I’ve been wanting to read it for a while (& I’m really looking forward to seeing what you thought of it!), but I’m a HUGE Poe fan – and I’ve noticed a LOT of people who reviewed this book spelled his name as Allen, rather than Allan /nerdrage – so I’m a bit hesitant.

    Tamora Pierce meets George R.R. Martin? …whoa. That’s definitely some high praise!

    Days of Blood and Starlight!!! I’m on a wait list for that book; can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    I’ll be getting The Cadet of Tildor soon too!! I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting to read it for a while now. And OHMYGOD Poison! I’m soooo insanely jealous that you got that book. I’ve been dying to read it! I had no idea that the author passed away though. 😦 That’s so sad.
