In My Mailbox 13

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

My thirteenth IMM post - here we go.

Books I received this week.

In The Post:

She's So Dead to Us - Kieran Scott
I've been wanting this book for ages and there is a second book coming out soon so now seemed like the perfect time to get it.

Born At Midnight - C.C. Hunter
Sounds like the start of an awesome paranormal series.

To Marry a Prince - Sophie Page
I have a big thing for historical romance and this one looked to cute to pass up.

An Abundance of Katherines - John Green
I love books about road trips. Maybe it's because I can't drive (yet - I passed my theory test this week and have had a million driving lessons so I am getting closer) that road trips sound like the most fun thing ever. Anyway a few people heard about my road trip love and recommended this one.

Song of Scarabaeus - Sara Creasy
I saw this one on Nath's IMM post last week at Books, Books and more Books, I read the review she linked to thought it sounded good so I got myself a copy.

Wake Unto Me - Lisa Cach

Another book about impossible romance plus it's set in France - what's not to love.

Scorpia Rising - Anthony Horowitz
So excited when it came in the post yesterday. Reading now. May cry when it's all over.

For Review:

Ravenwild - Peter J. Plasse

This book looks so amazing and it has really cute illustrations.


Rockoholic - C.J. Skuse
From the lovely Tasha @ A Trillion Books.
The book was singed and came with a Curly Wurly and a cute Rockoholic postcard with a little badge.
A huge thank you to Tasha @ A Trillion books and to C.J. Skuse. I can't wait to read it.

I also received this book plate all the way from the US. No idea who it's from but seeing as I pre-ordered the book it must have worked. I love Sarah MacLean's adult romance novels but I really love her YA book The Season. I really wish she would write another.


The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale - Christine Bell
It's netGalley month so I am trying to work my way through some of my netGalley books. I have already read this one and the review should be up later this month.

The Art of Forgetting - Camille Noe Pagan
As soon as I have finished Die For Me this will be my next netGalley book.

Simon & Schuster Galley Grab:

The Summer Before Boys - Nora Raleigh Baskin
