In My Mailbox


The "In My Mailbox" post consists of which books we bought during the past week, hosted by The Story Siren.


For review:


Purchased:
  • Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I had to take a couple of glances at the description and look at reviews to decide whether or not to pick this one up.  But the idea of Cinderella with a twist sold me.

For review (e-edition):

The Hangman in the Mirror by Kate Cayley
Historical fiction used to be my favorite genre as a kid/tween/teenager (believe it or not).  And this one sounded so intriguing.  Thanks goes to Annick Press and Netgalley.
The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
This book is described as a dark and thrilling adventure.  I hope it's good!  Thanks goes to ABRAMS and Netgalley.
Kiss of the Vampire by Cynthia Carner
I will admit that I requested this book solely on the word 'vampire' in the title.  One of the few non-young-adult novels I have in my queue to read.  Thanks goes to Grand Central Publishing and Netgalley.







Purchased (e-edition):

Destined by Jessie Harrell
Greek mythology placed in a book.  And the bonus, it involves gods/goddesses that I'm not super familiar with.  I'm excited!
Anathema by KA Tucker
I've heard good things about this book and it involves (you guessed it) vampires. Also, it is a free e-read for all those who have an e-reader.  I'm looking forward to this one.
