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:
  • Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • This book completely caught my interest.  Seeking sanctuary in a convent and then working for Death?  Yes, please (just the reading, not the living)...

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I had a coupon for Barnes and Noble and thought I'd pick a book out.  After seeing this book on so many favorites lists out there, I decided to inspect it.  After finding out the World War II setting, I decided I needed to buy it.
  • Archon: The Books of Raziel by Sabrina Benulis
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Remember said coupon above?  I forgot to use it on my first purchase.  So, I grabbed this one (almost purely based on the cover - it's beautiful).  Angels and demons, we'll see if it becomes a favorite of mine.
  • The Fault in our Stars by John Green
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I don't think I've seen a negative review for this book.  I've heard it's good and will make you cry.  So I decided to pick it up with the giftcard my mom gave me for my birthday.

For Review (e-edition):

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama
Mermaids and tragic lovers?  Yes!  This will be my first mermaid read.  Thanks goes to Netgalley and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
This sounds like a dark book.  You'll have to read the description to figure out why I want to read it.  Thanks goes to Netgalley and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
The Raft by SA Bodeen
This sounds like a book about survival.  I can't wait!  Thanks goes to Netgalley and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
Beauty in the Beast by Christine Danse
A story within a story.  Add some paranormal dust and a bit of London.  Then I think I want to read it!  Thanks goes to Netgalley and Carina Press.
