In My Mailbox (12)

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.

This week was a good one for books for me. I received a few for review and also got some from contests and from other bloggers. I am happy to say that I didn't break by book buying ban and only have just under a month to go until I can start buying books again. Hopefully it will go buy fairly quickly. So here's what I got this week.

Review:


- Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez (Simon Pulse October 18th, 2011) - I haven't heard all that much about this book but I've seen it floating around the blogosphere. From what I understand from the summary on the back, it sounds really interesting. Plus it has a really gorgeous cover.

- Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts (Simon & Schuster November 1st, 2011) - I had heard nothing about this book until it showed up in my mailbox this week. The summary makes it sound really interesting so I'm looking forward to reading it. Plus it's from by a Canadian author, so I'm happy to show some support there.


Won/Gifted:


- Hereafter by Tara Hudson (HarperTeen June 7th, 2011) - I've been looking forward to reading Hereafter for a while now and I'm happy to finally have a copy of my own. I love ghost stories, so it sounds like this book is right up my alley. Thank you to Maryam of Books Glorious Books for sending me this through R.A.K.

- Seizure by Kathy Reichs (Sampler - Razorbill October 2011) - I really enjoyed Virals when I read it earlier this year, so I'm really looking forward to Seizure. Now I have a sneak peek to tide me over until the book releases. Thank you to Penguin Canada and PenguinCanadaYR on Twitter for the contest.


That's it for me this week! Let me know what you got in your mailbox!

  2. Oh my god there's a sequel to Virals coming out!?!? I can't wait! Dark Inside is definitely on my wishlist too; I found the title on Goodreads a while ago and I can't wait to read it.
    Enjoy your books this week and happy reading. Also, good luck with your book ban. I know how hard they are to stick to!
