In My Mailbox...

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi, The Story Siren. It's another way I learn about new books coming out. This past week, I got even more books to add to my overflowing TBR pile.

I bought The Maze Runner. I already had the second book in the series, The Scorch Trial, which I bought in a a fire-sale when Borders was closing. Now that I have book one, I can finally start reading this story.

I love the cover of The Book of Summers by Emylia Hall. Thanks to the publisher, Mira for sending it to me. It follows a 9 year-old girl to the age of 16, as she spends summers between her mom who lives overseas and her dad in America. A life-shattering secret emerges and a betrayal ensues. Sounds good. It releases May 29.

Thanks to St. Martins's Griffin for sending the third installment of The Chronicles of Nick series, Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon. The first book in the series, Infinity, was zombie heavy, and I'm not a zombie-loving sort of girl, but I was surprised to really enjoyed the story and I find myself reading book 3. I'm kind of committed to Nick's journey now. I think there's like 12 books or something in the series, so I'll see how far I make've never read anything by Jackson Pearce, but Purity sounds like a heart-felt book: a dying mom and a promise; looking for a loophole to lose one's virginity...sounds complex--and it's not a very long book--only 224 pages. My thanks to Little, Brown for their generosity. Purity releases April 24.

Entangled Publishing sent Pretty Amy. It releases May 8. I've started reading it and I'm liking it! The author captures the teen voice and angst, being pissed at parents, perfectly!

And lastly, I received a discount coupon from Barnes and Noble. I headed over there and was met at the door with a table loaded with the Shades of Gray trilogy. I couldn't resist and had to buy it. I have to see what all the fuss is about. I'll save this for one of my summer reads.

What are you reading?


  1. I hope you like The Maze Runner- I thought it was really good. Happy reading!

  2. I need to get Infamous as well as read the series, so behind

    Happy reading

  3. I also just got Maze Runner recently. I haven't read it yet, but I've heard nothing but good things. I'm excited to read Purity because the author is awesome. Do you watch her liveshows every Tuesday? And I want to read Pretty Amy. Looks like you've got a lot of good reads ahead of you. My IMM

  4. Love your books..I just got the one with the flowers on it, too...

    Shades Of Gray?

    My word!!! Lol..

  5. Great mailbox (excluding Shades of Grey, I can't even form words for that book...)!!
    I still need to read The Maze Runner! I got a signed copy of Purity this week and got to meet Jackson! She was so cool and super hilarious. But I'll be sharing that one on my next IMM. Pretty Amy is on my TBR list also and I'm looking forward to what you have to say about it! I've never heard of The Book of Summers but it sounds good. Congrats on getting so many awesome sounding books :) But Shades of Grey, beware... However, I only read it when it was a FanFic, so who knows... Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Infamous was in my mailbox this week too. I can't wait to devour it. 50 Shades of Gray does sound interesting. I hope its as good as everyone says. Enjoy!


I enjoy reading what you have to say. Seriously!
