In My Mailbox #22

Good afternoon readers! It’s Sunday which means it’s time for me to tell you what was in my mailbox this week!

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

MASSIVE week this week! This are all boughts. Not including books that I borrowed from the library because then my IMM would be rediculously long. I might share those next week.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin

I may have squeeled a little when this arrived! The first impression is that the cover is so much prettier in person, and it has this silky feel about the paper! I cannot wait to read this.
Lola & The Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins

If you thought I squeeled when I got Mara Dyer, then I had a cardiac when Lola arrived in the post! I absolutely lapped up Anna & The French Kiss, and I absolutely became a fan of Stephanie Perkins with that one book. I cannot wait to start Lola & The Boy Next Door. In fact, I might start today!
Ashes - Ilsa J. Bick

This cover is so much prettier than the US one in my opinion. The cover is bronze and it’s actually foiled, and all shiny and metalic. It’s beautiful! I don’t know too much about this, but I believe this is the first book in a triology and it’s dystopian. It’s received excellent reviews!
The Luxe - Anna Godbersen

After reading Vixen by Jillian Larkin, I’ve been told by many people I should be reading this book! Vixen was my first venture in historic fiction and I was surprised at how much I loved it, so I am keen to try more!

A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harknes

A girl at work actually told me I should read this. She used to work in a book store and has so many good recommendations, but she said to her, this book was as addictive and as good as the Twilight series. Big call to make! She said it was refreshing to have a book about witches instead of vampires for once, so I am keen to see if it lives up to the hype!

Between - Jessica Warman

I hadn’t heard of this book before but the cover grabbed my attention at the book store. It doesn’t give too much away on the blurb on the back of the book, but it sounds like an extremely compelling contemporary book. I could be wrong, but intitial reactions from the cover sound like something like If I Stay and Here Lies Bridget.

    I had the same reaction when my copy of Mara Dyer arrived! I love how if you tilt it on the side, almost the entire image disappears, and when you look at it straight on, the image is so startling! (I hope that made sense!) I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, but I’m excited to!

    Happy reading :)

  • I got Mara and Lola this week as well! I really want to check out A Discovery of Witches now! And Between has been in my TBR pile for a long time! Great bunch of books! :)

    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

    My IMM this week!

  • MARA!!!! Eee! I have a copy coming (hopefully next week) and so freaking excited to read it. I’ve read so many gushing reviews. I hope you love it!!

    Very eager to get my hands on Ashes and Between too. AND OMG I LOVE LOLA. CricketCricketCricketCricket! <3

    Ahem. Happy reading!

  • I got 2 of the first books this week too. I’m loving Lola and the Boy Next Door, so far. Between sounds great. Awesome books you got this week! Hope you enjoy your books!
    Happy Reading!

  • I’m excited to read all of the titles you have there, great IMM this week! I’m loving Lola and the Boy Next Door so far. Hope you enjoy your books!
    Happy Reading!

  • Mara Dyer and Lola are two of my favorite books this year!! I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

    Between and Discovery of Witchs are both high on my wish list, I hope you plan on reviewing them so I can see your thoughts!

  • Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

    I agree with the Mara cover! You really can’t tell just how beautiful it is until you have it in your hands. My hubby bought it for me this week and I am already loving it although I’m not very far in. I still need to get my hands on Lola and Between!

    My IMM: My IMM

  • I read an ARC of Ashes, loved it so much my wife bought me a copy on release day! And Mara, she’s on my TBR pile, very hard to resist the temptation to put down other books and read her!

    Read your post on your Kindle. I have the Kobo Touch, which is an upgrade from the Sony Pocket Edition I had before it. I LOVE my Kobo! So versatile!

    Happy reading!
