In My Mailbox #22

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.

Unfortunately my HarperCollins package hasn't arrived yet (I really hope it gets here sometime in the next week, because I'm dying of impatience here!), but I still did get some awesome stuff this week. One awesome thing that happened a couple days ago - I got auto-approved for Harlequin on Edelweiss! So all the Harlequin TEEN books are available to me now, along with all the HarperCollins titles, since I was auto-approved for them a while ago. I'm crazy excited for new Harlequin TEEN books to be added there now :)

For Review

Elusion by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam*
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott*
Before We Fall by Courtney Cole^
ARC of Recipe for Attraction by Gina Gordon

*ARCs from Edelweiss (thanks HarperCollins and Harlequin!)
^ARC from NetGalley (thanks Forever Books!)

I was scrolling through the HarperCollins titles on Edelweiss and came across Elusion. I was surprised I hadn't already downloaded it, since it sounds so awesome, so I did that immediately! I'm hopefully getting a print ARC of this, but either way I can't wait to read it. Heartbeat is one of the Harlequin TEEN books I immediately downloaded after my auto-approval. I've read Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott, and loved her writing in it. So I hope I'll love this one too.

And omg I freaked out when I got accepted for Before We Fall on NetGalley! I just finished this one, and it's so amazing. Though probably the darkest book I've ever read. Definitely not recommended for younger teens. Hell, I think even I'm too young to be reading that! But I really did love it. I was glad to get the opportunity to review Recipe for Attraction, because I loved the first book in the series and had been waiting for this one for a long time. I finished this one a couple days ago as well, and loved it. My reviews for both books will be up soon so look out for them!

Received from author

I just received a lovely swag pack from Ripley Patton, author of The PSS Chronicles series! Thank you so much for this, Ripley. The swag pack contains 1 giant Ghost Hand sticker, 4 smaller Ghost Hold stickers, 2 signed Ghost Hand postcards, 2 signed Ghost Hold postcards, one Ghost Hand/Ghost Hold keyring, and a cool Ghost Hand toy!
I will be keeping some of this aside for a swag giveaway that I will host soon :)

And that's my haul for this week. Crossing my fingers for a really awesome one next week! What did you get in your mailbox? Leave me a comment and link yours so I can visit you :)
