In My Mailbox (9)

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.


Last week's IMM showed me breaking down and getting a whole bunch of books after I swore to myself I would show restraint. I am officially totally and completely off the wagon. Here's what I got this week:

I won Fallen by Thomas E. Sniegoski from the lovely ladies at Bewitched Bookworms (and this so doesn't count as me being bad) and a free copy from work of Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler (does it count as being bad if it's free?):



From the library:
 


I actually would have had more from the library, but I gave away Matched by Ally Condie and The Lying Game by Sara Shepard to my patrons. See, that counts as being good, right? 


For review:




Free e-books:






What did you get in your mailbox (or on your library card or credit card)? Feel free to add your IMM links in your comments.

  19. Thanks for stopping by everyone! I've read Deadly and I'm almost finished with the Mermaids/Toe Rings book, so I should have reviews for both sooner than later. Eventually I'll have reviews for all of these. All the excitement for Fallen has bumped that one up my TBR!

    ReplyDelete

  29. Thanks to everyone for stopping by! All of you mentioning the cover of Fallen? I AGREE! Hehe, he looks even nicer in person ;)

    Aylee, I’m really looking forward to that one! I may have squeaked out loud when I got that one.

    Anime Girl, I have noticed a lot of mermaid books recently. I think they’re maneuvering to be the next big thing.

    Jenny, I didn’t love the first Soul Screamers book as much as I was hoping I would, but I did like the character Tod a lot and this is his story.

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL, thanks so much for that HUGE list of recommendations you gave me! :D A lot of them are definitely not my typical reads so they are perfect for the challenge.

    Someone else recommended Ray Bradbury too - anything in particular by him you'd suggest to start with? I read his short story "The Veldt" when I was in high school and it totally freaked me out, but I am willing to try him again (especially considering that *was* years ago now).

    Also, I'd love to return the favour and recommend some books for you if possible! Any genres/categories that are out of your comfort zone/not your usual thing? :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's one heck of a mailbox you've got there! I've been wondering about The Lipstick Laws...I'll be on the lookout for your review of that :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am also in a sort of book-buying ban which is getting harder and harder to do every minute!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm crazy about chocolate and that's what comforted me while sick. I'm okay now and ready to roll :D

    I was disappointed with Fat Vampire too - I was really looking forward to enjoying it, but couldn't.

    Have a great new week!

  33. Danya, I'll answer your questions on your blog so you're sure to see it :)

    Melissa, I think I'll be starting it tonight, so a review shouldn't be too far off!

    Nina, I'm so happy you're feeling better! I think chocolate is the closest thing to a universal comfort food. I always go straight for the chocolate when I'm feeling cruddy.

  34. I think free totally keeps you on the wagon! :) Good stuff. I'm curious about Confessions of a Jane Austen addict. Off to look it up...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hehe, I'm going with your wisdom. Free is on the wagon. :D

    :) It sounds cute, right? Have you seen the movie Lost in Austen (if you haven't, I so recommend it!)? The plot of this book reminds me of that movie a little.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Real Mermaids don't wear Toe Rings look sooo cute! looks like some great books this week, happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict high on my list of things to read. I'm on a bit of a Jane Austen spin-offs kick!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks all!

    Madigan, this one will be the first one that I've read...I'm pretty sure. I think I've only seen movie spin-offs.

    ReplyDelete

  40. I've been on a short vacation and away from the blog-o-sphere. I'm back now, trying to catch up... looks like you had a great week. Two of the freebies, I snagged at some point too.

    I'm curious, where'd the for review books come from? Cuz NetGalley says the kindle this is not functioning.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Lipstick Laws I got through Net Galley. The other two came from Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab program. I had heard about Net Galley not working for Kindle right now. I hope they fix that soon, but I read all my e-books on my computer anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes, you are correct! Net Galley has "temporarily" disable the Kindle button. Its slowly KILLIN' me! This was my only source for E-Arcs. I'm soooo sad...!!! The Galley Grab program doesn't support the Kindle, either.

    I can't read the books on my computer, because I work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's so frustrating! I wonder why Net Galley isn't working for Kindle right now. If I discover any alternatives I'll be sure to let you know. :)
