In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of the Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a post where we talk about the books we received during the week either for review, from the bookstore or anywhere else.

It's been about a month since I last did an In My Mailbox post but this week I got some pretty amazing books so I thought I would share. I'm really excited about all of them. So here they are:

For Review:


- Wildefire by Karsten Knight (Simon & Schuster July 26, 2011) - I've heard some really amazing things about this book which made me really want to read it. I'm really excited to have received a review copy of it and I can't wait to get started on it.

- Fury by Elizabeth Miles (Simon Pulse August 30, 2011) - I haven't heard too much about this one but the summary makes it sound really interesting. I'm not entirely sure what to expect but I'm happy to have a review copy of it and I can't wait to read it but I'll probably wait until closer to the release date.

- The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Simon & Schuster September 27, 2011) - I can't believe I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book. I have heard so many great things about it, especially after it was featured at BEA two weeks ago. The premise sounds great and I cannot wait to jump right in. I just might have to bump it up to the top of my TBR even though it doesn't come out until September.

(Big thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for all three of these books!)

Bought:


- The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross (Harlequin Teen May 24, 2011) - I've heard a lot of great things about this one and I love steampunk novels so this one sounds like I would really enjoy it. Hopefully I'll get a chance to read it soon!

So that's all I got In My Mailbox this week. Comment and let me know what you got in yours!

  4. 'Wildefire' is definitely a fun and interesting read. I liked all the different mythologies mixed together like that. And yay for a non-white main character!

    I can't wait to read 'Mara Dyer' ... there's just been so much hype for it, and everyone who's read it over the past couple of weeks seems to love it.

    I just read 'The Girl...' last week or so, and I really enjoyed it. It was just a really cool and exciting book, all the action and the steampunk aspect.

  7. Oooh, three really great books. I loved Wildefire. Can't wait to see what you think.

    Fury looks amazing and so does The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.

    And The Girl in the Steel Corset was such a great read.

    Happy reading!
