In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren, and we bloggers share what books we have either received or purchased that week.

Bought:




Starcrossed (Starcrossed #1) by Josephine Angelini [Goodreads, my review]
Forgotten by Cat Patrick [Goodreads, my review]
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky [Goodreads]
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray [Goodreads]
Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder #2) by Kimberly Derting [Goodreads]

Received:


A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan [via Netgalley, Goodreads]
Circle Nine by Anne Heltzel [via Netgalley, Goodreads]
Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly [via Netgalley, Goodreads]
Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong [Goodreads]**

**Special scenario for this one.  Way back in February, I won a Breathless Reads Tour poster from Ally Condie in a giveaway she hosted on her website.  A long time later, and I still hadn't received it.  I tweeted her about it, and she said to tweet Penguin Teen.  I did.  No response.  I waited a bit longer.  The next time, I tweeted both Ms. Condie & Penguin Teen.  Ms. Condie didn't know what was wrong.  Penguin Teen told me that the posters should've already been shipped and that I should email them.  I did.  No response.  I participated in Ms. Condie's giveaway for an ARC of Enthralled and though I wasn't the winner, she spotted my name in the comments and emailed me, asking me if I wanted an ARC since I had such a hard time with the poster.  Um, yeah!!!  So in conclusion, no response from Penguin and no poster but an ARC from Ally.  What a nice gesture on her part.

Enthralled & Awaken are books I've chosen for the #30books30days challenge so expect reviews for those soon :)... And of course, I will probably be reviewing the Netgalley titles ASAP.  May flip some of that schedule around to get Angel Burn in.

What's in your mailbox?
Happy Sunday everybody!
