In My Mailbox #16

Good morning readers! I hope you’re enjoying your morning! I am recovering from a night out last night, coffee in hand! lol

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme bought to you by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren.

I received a parcel from Harlequin Teen this week with a copy of The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter and Saving June by Hannah Harrington! These have both appeared in previous versions of In My Mailbox, but I am planning on doing a review of each and then some form of associated giveaway when the review is posted. Early stages yet!

I bought some pretty big titles this week. I LOVE my mailbox books this week. :)

Bloodlines - Richelle Mead

I was a liiiiittle hesitant to buy this because I haven’t quite gotten around to reading the Vampire Academy series. But after a discussion with the Dymocks staff, we believe that whilst it has characters from the VA series, it will be able to be read as a stand alone series. So it will be interesting to see how it reads from the perspective of someone who hasn’t read the other books!
Blood Red Road - Moira Young

If I am honest, I am not a fan of either the US or International covers. But I continually keep hearing this book come up time and time again. And as a dystopian fan, I’ve been told it’s a “must read”. So I am going in with an open mind on this one!
Forgotten - Cat Patrick

Sounds completely intriguing. It’s about a girl who’s memories of each day are erased as she sleeps at night. She wakes with only bisions of the future. It’s been really hyped up upon its release so I am keen to see what it’s all about!
Awaken - Katie Kacvinsky

I really love the idea of where this book is coming from. Everyone interacts on the internet, they don’t leave home anymore, they do absolutely everything online these days. Until Maddie meets Justin.. who likes people and likes going outside, and likes talking to people face to face. I can’t wait to read this!

    I want to read Awaken and Forgotten too! I also have Bloodlines and have read Blood Red Road - really good :)

  • Scarlett says:

    I just finished Bloodlines and liked having the background of the other VA books. While it’s not a perfect series, it is diverting and I’m glad I read through them at least once. It will be interesting to see what you think of everything, though it does give a way a whole bunch from books before it. Great IMM!

    Here’s my IMM!
