In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and inspired by Alea @ Pop Culture Junkie

I have an EPIC mailbox this week because pretty much all my birthday books turned up! The biggest box from Amazon arrived and there they all were! Also I got my first RAK from the lovely Katie this week and (idiot that I am), I didn’t realise a load of accepted book requests for NetGalley had gone into my junk mail folder (I wasn’t even aware I had a junk mail folder) so now I’ve got a ridiculous amount of books on Kindle to read as well (as I’ve barely touched the last two IMM of ebooks either!). I hope NetGalley doesn’t have a time limit on reading/reviewing…

Anyways. Here they all are – what shall I read first!?!!

Bought Part 1

Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Awful, tacky cover that would put me off but I have read lots of good reviews and it seems like a fun read.

The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade

Wanted for ages and it looks like a great summer read.

Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt

How long have I been waiting for this to be released here!!?! Too long. But I am annoyed with the change of cover design – this one is horrible – I liked the green US cover. Oh well. Sean Griswold you and me have a reading date!

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson


Insatiable by Meg Cabot

Meg – I love you, but these new dark, gothic covers don’t go with my pink, sparkly ‘Meg Shelf’!

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzama

I wanted the red cover but they didn’t have it sadly. Oh well – Im sure this one will make me cry, but I’m still excited to read it.

Going too Far by Jennifer Echols

Everyone agrees this is a great read, so Im interested to try an Echols book.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

I only hear fantastic things about this – so I had to get it!

Ultraviolet by R.J Anderson


Possession by Elana Johnson

Can. Not. Wait.

Enclave by Ann Aguirre

Dystopian fix for this week lol!

Plain Kate by Erin Bow

I’ve had this on my wishlist for months and last week or so I’ve read some fab reviews so decided to finally order a copy! I LOVE the cover.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL! Guys – I’m excited!

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

A nice fat romance book to get stuck into! Now I just need some chocolate and I’m good to go!

Bought Part 2 (yes there’s a part 2. Because I forgot about these as they came earlier in the week!)

An Act of Love by Alan Gibbons

I’m so intrigued by this one – two friends who grow up and end up fighting in a war against one another. I haven’t read many reviews on this yet but it sounds fantastic (and sad – I really need to stop reading books that distress me).

Split by Swati Avasthi

I’ve already read this and it was as amazing and heartbreaking as everyone promised it would be!

Abandon by Meg Cabot

Over a year I have been waiting for this. A YEAR. Thats a long time.


Entangled by Cat Clarke

How happy am I to receive a RAK!



Legacy by Cayla Kluver

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz

Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey

The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle

Im requested all these because they all looked yummy and a couple had some good reviews already on various blogs!

LOTS to read you guys!

What did you get this week? Leave me a link!

  13. Wow awesome mail box Amy. I’ve read Forbidden. It was a beautiful book. I was a nasty sobbing snotty mess by the end though. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I read it in 24 hrs. It’s beautifully written.

    Great mail ox (I think I already said that) but it’s still true.

    Happy Reading :)
