In My Mailbox (57) / Stacking the Shelves (12)

12 Jan

in my mailbox stacking the shelvesWeek of January 12, 2013

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!

I’m trying to stick to my NetGalley resolution, friends. This week was small but AWESOME. Woot!


The Moon and More

Amazon | Goodreads

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen (June 4, 2013 from Viking Juvenile).  I haven’t read ALL of Sarah Dessen’s books, but I’ve read a few, and I’ve enjoyed them. This one sounds typically emotional: it’s about a girl who is going off to college and is spending her last summer at home, where she has to figure out lots of stuff, including a BOY.

Book cover for Senshi by Cole Gibsen

Amazon | Goodreads

Senshi: Katana #2 by Cole Gibsen (March 8, 2013 from Flux).  I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, KATANA, about a girl who finds out that she is the reincarnation of a samurai warrior. It was pretty good, guys, and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Raleigh/Senshi next when things kind of go south.


Book cover for The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell

Amazon | Goodreads

The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell.  I already read this one, friends (review coming soon), and honestly, it was REALLY good. A very well-paced fantasy with good world-building and a pretty slow-burning (and I do mean slow) relationship. Good stuff.

Book cover for Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Amazon | Goodreads

Just One Day: Just One Day/Just One Year #1 by Gayle Forman. I just finished this book this morning and it is still basically all I can think about. It was basically perfect, if you like to read about imperfect people and things. Which I do. Because that’s real life, y’all. This books was outstanding.

That’s my mailbox for the last few weeks, friends! I hope you all got some great things, too!

    Good for you for sticking to NetGalley resolutions! It helps, it really does…I have pretty strict rules for myself regarding ARCs these days, and I still almost get overwhelmed, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel (meaning I might catch up!).

    These look great, Amy! Excited to read your Tildor review, and happy you loved Just One Day…I think I need to read Where She Went before I’m ready to start this duology!

    I still haven’t managed to read anything by Sarah Dessen. And I haven’t read Gayle Forman yet either. I really need to remedy this.

    Check out my SP & STS.

    I need to go and get my hands on a copy of The Cadet of Tildor. LOVED that book so, so much. And also, yay for Just One Day! It’s a really great book, and I’m still thinking about it even days after finishing it…

    I’m really interested in The Cadet of Tildor – I’ve been hearing such great things about it! And I just broke my own resolution and bought Just One Day because everyone has been raving about it and I just HAVE to be in on all the love 🙂
