In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox is a meme started by Kristi at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie where we get to post about the books we receive each week through publishers/authors, our own purchases, contests won, and libraries.
 
The cute IMM button comes from Bewitched Bookworms.

As always, all of the photos will go larger if you click on them.



Free E-books



I got both of these from Amazon, but I think they're also available through Barnes and Noble.

From the Library


Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
(Click on the title to go to Goodreads)

I'm torn about whether or not I should start this book. I've heard so many great things about it, but I've also heard there's a cliffhanger ending. I have a few things to read before this one, so I have some time to decide.

Thank you to both bloggers! If you're not familiar with their blogs, please do check them out. They're both seasoned bloggers who set the standard for YA book blogging.

I'm hoping to read Bloodthirsty soon. I've read Deadly and will have a review posted up soon.

  1. Interesting books there. I'm definitely curious to see what you think of Unearthly.

  2. Ah!!!! I love Unearthly. It's a cliffhanger in the sense that you want to know the answers to some of the questions but the romance plot and main plot are actually wrapped up and finished. You want to read the next one because you want to return to the characters so bad. Haha.

  3. Smalls,

    Congrats on your wins.

    When I hear that books have a cliffhanger ending, I avoid them like the plague. ;)

  4. That's awesome that you got The New World for free! I love the Chaos Walking series, and I've been wanting to read it. Unearthly sounds interesting as well, and the cover's awesome. Hope you enjoy your books! :)

  6. I know what you mean about avoiding books because of cliffhanger endings... but I usually tend to succumb to my curiosity and end up just reading it anyways.

  18. Read Unearthly NOW. Seriously. It's amazing. Yes it's kind of a cliff hanger ending, and yes I'm dying for the second book, but it's actually a pretty well placed ending. Lots left to be explained, but some bits very well wrapped up. Happy reading :)

  19. Unearthly is one of those books aka paranormal that I'm trying to avoid... But the cover is pretty so I'm tempted.... We'll see how long I can put off. I do still have a lot to read.
