In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly blog post hosted by Kirsti over at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

I had a pretty decent week. Didn't get a whole lot but that's good on the ol' TBR pile! 

This week I got:

 Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout 
Vanish by Sophie Jordan

Since everyone keeps saying awesome things about Obsidian I decided to buy the Kindle book since it was pretty cheap! And I already read Vanish but had yet to buy a keeper copy so I did!

For review from the author:

Stalking the Others by Jess Haines

Thanks again Jess! Can't wait to read it!

From review from the publisher via Netgalley--no idea why I never saw it there til yesterday--:

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen

Then not necessarily books, but book related and oh-so-cool, things I ordered and received this week were:

My deck of Fever Tarot cards from Karen Marie Moning's website!! They're pretty cool! Some of the pics on the cards are a little dark and hard to see, but I guess it takes getting used to! Still totally AWESOME!

My READ shirt from Shirt.Woot! I loooove it! It's a little hard to see but the letters are made of a whole bunch of things, like the 7 Dwarves, Cinderella, Moby Dick, a dragon and all other sorts of beings one would find when they read!!

And that was my week!! Not too bad! Might have to finish up my current read asap and read Julie's book instead of continuing on my "list" I had going on in my head!


  1. Nice mailbox! I just read Obsidian and liked it enough to buy everything else she has written for my Kindle. I have the first in Jess Haines' series on my Kindle but haven't had a chance to read it yet. And The Immortal Rules is also on my Kindle and in my plans for April. Have a great week!

  2. Oh I haven't revceive my Jess Haines book yet, I so can't wait!!!!!! Enjoy!

  3. Love the Read shirt!! Sounds like I need to stop by NG as well - I haven't seen those books there before either, so it's not just you!
