In My Mailbox [20]

While you're here, don't forget to check out my YA Contemps Giveaway!! Ends next Sunday!!

IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

Another super stressful, horrible week, but with an awesome haul of books. What's with that?

For review
Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton
Thank you Random House!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Thank you Lynsey, UK Book Tours!

Gifted
Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson
Wintercraft by Jenna Burtenshaw
Long Reach by Peter Cocks
Need by Carrie Jones
Massive thanks to Clover from Fluttering Butterflies for these!! She is super sweet and her blog is awesome, so you should all go follow her :)

Bought
River Marked by Patricia Briggs
Break by Hannah Moskowitz
A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford
Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead
Pretty bad Things by C. J. Skuse
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Rhamin by Bryce Thomas (this was random, hadn't heard of the book before, but author was signing in WHSmiths when I was there the other day, it involves wolves and he said a slight paranormal edge, so I happily bought it.)

Seeing how I'm barely managing to read a book a week right now, I think it's well past time I went on a book buying ban. Cause seriously, anything not for review will just be sitting there for months. Although I want to read them, I just can't right now.

What did you get in your mailbox?

I adore Anna and the French Kiss, and Need is really good, too.

I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to buy The Summer I Turned Pretty--I've heard so many great things about it, but I haven't been able to bring myself to buy it.

Great haul this week. Happy reading!

MY IMM

Clover said...

You always have great things in your IMM posts! I have Pretty Bad Things and The Summer I Turned Pretty as well, have had for awhile and haven't had a chance to get to them. Really, really need to push to get through some of my own books! Once I get through my review pile, that's going to be my focus.

Have fun reading all of these books :)
