In My Mailbox #16

In My Mailbox is a meme previously hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and now hosted by The Mod Podge Bookshelfwhich allows us to share the books we’ve bought, borrowed and received.

This IMM will feature most of the books I've got for the past 3 weeks. I say 'most' because I probably won't end up remembering them all! But I'm so freaking excited about some of the HarperCollins titles I just downloaded a couple days ago from Edelweiss :)


Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Oh my god, guys. I loved this one so much. And it left me so freaking impatient for the final book, Opposition. You can check out my review of Origin here!

I know this one isn't exactly book-related (more like movie related) but I'm very excited about it so I had to feature it here.

It's the Mortal Instruments mini kit! The picture isn't that great so I'll tell you guys what was in the amazing-looking box - 10 temporary rune tattoos, 2 TMI fridge magnets, 1 mini-book about the movie, and my personal favourite - an angelic rune necklace! I wear that thing every day now and I love it so much.


Chaos by Christine O'Neil

Many thanks to Heather Riccio at Entangled Publishing for this one! It was a great paranormal read. Read my review of Chaos here :)


Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

I received these two for my birthday a few weeks ago! I didn't ask for Clockwork Prince because I already had it. Yes, I know it's weird to own just the middle book of a trilogy. Which is why I wanted these two in paperback, so I can have the full trilogy on my bookshelf. And they look so pretty! This is one of my favourite series ever, and Clockwork Princess is my favourite 2013 book so far. I've written a full non-spoilery review which you can find here!

Received for Books That Glow: YA & MG 2013

ARC of The Liberator by Victoria Scott

I started freaking out when I saw this in my inbox! Thanks so much to Victoria Scott for sending me this. I loved The Liberator and Dante's awesomeness. I've already reviewed this one too, which you can read here.

For Review/Blog Tour

ARC of A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers*
ARC of Keeping Her by Cora Carmack*
ARC of Finding It by Cora Carmack*
ARC of Darker Days by Jus Accardo
ARC of The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa (from NetGalley)
ARC of Ghost Hold by Ripley Patton
ARC of Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi*
ARC of Death Sworn by Leah Cypess*
ARC of Wanderers by Susan Kim and Laurance Klavan*
ARC of Suddenly Royal by Nicole Chace*

*from Edelweiss (thanks HarperCollins!)

I love the review books I've got recently! Starting with the New Adult ones - A Little Too Far was amazing, it really was. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book. And I always love Cora's books so I have nothing to say about Keeping Her and Finding It, except for this - I'm sad to see the series end, but I can't wait for Hunt's novella.

And now to the YA. I received Darker Days as part of Entangled Teen's Ember Blog Tour, and I thought it was fantastic! An amazing start to the series. And guys OMG. Do you see that book in the middle? It's The Iron Traitor! Yes, that's right! I freaked out so much when I got accepted for it. I already finished reading it, and that ending just about killed me. But the entire book is a complete masterpiece, and I can't wait for everyone to read it. I also got Ghost Hold, the sequel to Ghost Hand, from Ripley Patton. My review (and giveaway) for that will be up soon.

This is an updated paragraph right here because I got the final four titles just a couple days ago and had to update my scheduled IMM post. BUT OMG GUYS. INTO THE STILL BLUE. I can't even... I have no words. Literally. I'm also freaking excited to read Wanderers, the sequel to Wasteland. And Death Sworn sounds awesome too! I was surprised to find Suddenly Royal on Edelweiss, but I'm happy it's there. It sounds like a fun NA read to me :)

And that's everything major from the past 3 weeks, I think! This has got to be my favourite IMM even though I've got no amazing JLA swag or anything this time. But I've got a whole lot of awesome books that I've read/can't wait to read, so yay :D
What do you think of the books I've got? Looking forward to any of them? Leave me a comment :)

  16. Epic haul! I'm really glad you liked The Infernal Devices, but I didn't really like Clockwork Angel and that's why I have not read the rest of the books. I hope you enjoy Origin! A lot of people have been buying that book. The series must be really awesome.

    Here's my STS:


  17. Origin was amazing, wasn't it? I want the final book, too, but also - it will be the last book, and what will I do then! When the Lux series is over. JLA is awesome.

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies and happy reading :)

  18. The Liberator was so good, loved Dante all over again! I have to catch up on the Lux series, I'm a couple of books behind. Enjoy your reads!

  19. Ooh, you got some great books! I haven't read most of them, but I have heard good things about many of them.

    I also loved The Collector and Dante! I was just accepted into the V Mafia this week and I also bought The Liberator. :)

  30. I can't wait to read The Liberator! I'm going to have to buy it when I get some spare reading time.

    And I can't wait to read Iron Traitor. Julie is one of my favorite authors, and I'm sure this is going to be fantastic.

    Stephanie @ Inspiring Insomnia

  31. Wow! What a great haul you got over the last couple of weeks! I still haven't read any Cassandra Clare books but from what I hear, they are awesome. I really should give them a shot at some point. I have no luck with HarperCollins on Edelweiss. They never respond to any of them unless I'm part of a blog tour. *le sigh* I see you got WANDERERS! So lucky!

    Thanks for stopping by my pot. I'm following you on Bloglovin' now :)

    Christine @ The Bookish Daydreamer
