In My Mailbox (9)


(this adorable picture is borrowed from Anna @ Anna Reads)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the epic Story Siren. Here bloggers can share with others the awesome books that they received for review, bought, or borrowed.






  • Witchlanders by Lena Coakley- this one looks interesting, especially as it has a male protagonist



  • The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels- I've been meaning to get to this one for quite a while but just found out that my library doesn't have a copy. Went to Amazon and found that the kindle edition was only $2.99 or something like that so I caved and bought it!
  • The Girl Who Was On Fire by Leah Wilson- THIS ONE I have been DYING to read for ages and its popped up on the blogosphere again and again and with all of the new announcements for Hunger Games castings, etc. I just HAD to HAVE IT! (I'm sure you understand the compulsion...)



  • Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach- LOVE this cover! Really excited to start this one as I've heard quite a bit about it.
  • Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith- HUGE fan of Ms. Smiths. I've read her Crown Duel dozens of times. Heard about this from Read.Breathe.Relax who has a very similar reading style :) Really excited!!
  • Repossessed by A.M Jenkins- heard about this one from Small Review who really liked it. Excited to give it a try as the premise is really interesting!
  • The Magicians by Lev Grossman- found out about this one by seeing the second in the series available on NetGalley. Wanted to give the first one a try and hopefully move onto the second.
  • Wither by Lauren DeStefano -this one needs no introduction except for the erroneousness that I haven't read it yet.

How about you? What's IYM (in your mailbox)?

  10. You got some great ones this week! I can't wait for the Mephisto Covenant and Witchlanders, both look so so good. And I don't read nearly enough books with male protagonists, so Witchlanders is particularly appealing:)

  12. All of these books look really, really good. I loved Wither and I am excited to read Wake Unto Me and The Mephisto Covenant. Hope you enjoy your new books!

  13. Hmm...I hadn't heard of The Girl Who Was On Fire book. I wonder if that's any good!

    Wither I'm kind of on the edge about. I've heard such mixed things. Mostly the bad reviews were that it was disturbing. But, I'm still kind of intrigued!

    Great blog btw, I'm a new follower! :)

    Here's my IMM for this week.

  18. Lots of great books here! I actually just finished The Mephisto Covenant the other day - I sincerely hope you enjoy it a lot more than I did.

    I hope Wake Unto Me turns out to be good! I haven't had a chance to read it yet but I want to.

  20. That's a pretty neat mailbox you got there. Lots of great titles. Hope you enjoy them all.

    Oh and I love the cover on The Mephisto Covenant!

  21. Wake Unto Me has been sitting on my bookshelf far too long. I just happened across it at The Strand and thought it sounded good, so I picked it up -- then all the buzz started! I hope you enjoy it =D If you like it, you might like the Mediator Series by Meg Cabot. They seem like they might have a similar vibe.
