In My Mailbox 12

In My Mailbox is weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

My twelfth IMM post - here we go.

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

Call Me Irresistible - Susan Elizabeth Phillips
I love SEP's books although I've only read a few, I'm hoping to get through a few more soon.

The Iron Thorn - Caitlin Kittredge
After wanting it for a month and being insanely jealous of everyone else getting it in their mailbox last week I caved and bought it.

Zen and Xander Undone - Amy Kathleen Ryan
I love the sound of this one, it's about two sisters who are struggling to cope after their Mother has died. Hoping to read this one in the coming week.

Soul Love - Lynda Waterhouse
I saw this one on So Many Books, So Little Time - it sounded interesting so I got it.

The White Queen - Philippa Gregory
I got this for a friend.


68 Knots - Michael Robert Evans

The Girl in the Steel Corset - Kady Cross

Bite Me, Try Me, Fang Me - Parker Blue

The whole trilogy - how awesome is that!

Where She Went - Gayle Forman OMG I loved it soooooo much, it made me cry - lately I have been loving books that make me cry. It came up on netgalley a couple of days ago I really really tried not to get it because I have already pre-ordered it so I wanted to wait to read it. I am ashamed to say I couldn't do it I had to have it. So I requested it, got it and read it on Friday afternoon. Sooooo good. As soon as my real life copy comes I am going to re-read it.


The Shy Duchess - Amanda McCabe

The Trouble With Spells (Of Witches and Warlocks) - Lacey Weatherford

The Diamonds of Welbourne Manor - Diane Gaston, Deb Marlowe, Amanda McCabe

My Soul to Lose - Rachel Vincent

'Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy - Leslie Langtry

Ghost-in-Law Boxset - Jana DeLeon

I went a little crazy with my kindle purchases this week no idea why. I have a big thing for those screwball mystery romances so I got a bunch of those, can't wait to get started on them.

Simon & Schuster Galley Grab:

I saw an add on the Shelf-Awareness newsletter to get an e-arc of Between Here and Forever I clicked the link and it sent me to the S&S Galley Grab I signed up not really thinking much of it but I got an email saying I had been accepted. YAY! So I immediately downloaded and read Between Here and Forever which I loved and a whole bunch of others. I had a seriously good book week.

Between Here and Forever - Elizabeth Scott

Red Glove - Holly Black

Stay - Deb Caletti

Invincible Summer - Hannah Moskowitz

Sixteenth Summer - Michelle Dalton

The Summer of Firsts and Lasts - Terra Elan McVoy

Wrapped - Jennifer Bradbury

That's all for now.


  1. I loved Stay by Deb Calleti and I'm dying to read Where She Went and The Iron Thorn!

    My IMM

  2. OMG !! Great IMM !! I really want to read The Iron Thorn .. I look forward to read your review in order to know if it's worth it .. Happy reading !!

  3. Great mailbox for you this week. I never knew netgalley had The Girl in the Steel Corset so I just requested it.
    By any chance, did Netgalley send it directly to your Kindle. I know they've been having problems but not sure if they have been resolved.

    Enjoy your reads.

    Here is my IMM:

  4. Wow some really gorgeous looking books there! Hope you enjoy them all!

  5. LOL, I love your In My Mail post, Sally ;) Makes me feel better that someone also buys as much books as me LOL.

    Ohhh, I haven't realized The Iron Thorn was out. That's the author's new steampunk YA series, right? Looking forward to your thoughts on it!

  6. That's a killer mix of paranormal and contemporary. Ahaha, and I love the blurb you wrote after the Iron Thorn.
    (And I feel guilty about leaving links in the comments, but... here's my IMM.)

  7. Great books, Sally! I'm jealous. I got a lot of books from NetGalley/Galley Grab too, but I forgot to include them in my haul again. I have to remember to do that one of these days -.-
    My IMM

  8. I really enjoyed My Soul to Lose, I hope you like it! I can't wait to see what you think of The Iron Thorn, sounds great! Enjoy all your awesome reads!

  9. Call Me irrisitable, just reminds me of Michael Buble lol <3

    The Book Mystress, xx

  10. Hey! We DID get a lot of the same books! Cool! I have been looking forward to Between Here and Forever for a long time so I'll be starting that one soon. I read Stay a while back and stay tuned on my blog for the review that'll be posted soon enough!

  11. Wow so many great books! O_o
    So jealous... Would like to read Stay by Deb Caletti, too... and already pre-ordered Between Here and Forever...

  12. Great books you got this week. I keep seeing The Iron Thorn everywhere I hope you enjoy.

  13. Hi, Sally. Thanks for stopping by Starting the Next Chapter today. I like the variety of books you have in your post this week. That is a good idea you have of waiting to read The Iron King until you have the other two. If you're anything like me, you will finish it and then want to start the others. I had to make myself wait in favor of my library book stack. I hope you have a great week. Happy reading!
