In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren (and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) to showcase any books that I have received for review, bought, borrowed, or won to read.


I haven't taken part in this meme for awhile because I really have tons to read already on my bookshelf. But I did get a few books for review or in giveaways the past few weeks, so lets get to it:


Angelfire
by Courtney Allison Moulton
Received for review from NetGalley and HarperTeen


Thank you NetGalley and HarperTeen!
This will probably be the first book I read after I finish the Wicked Lovely Series because it's coming out pretty soon: February 15th, 2011. I haven't had the best experience with angel books in the past but I'm holding out hope that this one is good!


Choker
by Elizabeth Woods
Received for review in a promotional contest from Simon and Schuster Canada


Thank you Simon and Schuster Canada!
I was a bit surprised to receive this one in the mail because I had been under the impression that this was more of a "1 in 100 chance" giveaway hosted by Simon and Schuster Canada. But apparently not because all I did was give them my address and a couple days later, the book came in the mail. Looking forward to this creeptastic read!



Fragile Eternity and Radiant Shadows (not pictured)
by Melissa Marr
Borrowed from the library


And the Wicked Lovely Series readathon continues! I'm only about halfway through Fragile Eternity (Book #3) because I've been so busy with school (even though it's only two weeks into the start of the semester!). So far, Fragile Eternity has been a bit slow... I'm hoping it'll pick up in the second half! I'm also really looking forward to reading the conclusion to this series.


The Monstrumologist and The Curse of the Wendigo (not pictured)
by Rick Yancey
Won from Melissa of YA Book Shelf and Simon and Schuster


Thank you Melissa and Simon and Schuster!
These are the first two books in a series where the monsters are scary, not loveable. I'm really looking forward to reading these as part of the YA Series Challenge. Rarely do I read books that could be classified as horror. The third book in this series, The Isle of Blood, comes out this September.

  10. You got fabulous books this week Aylee! I really enjoyed Angelfire and I've read a couple reviews that have me really wanting to read Choker, so I can't wait to see what you think. Choker seems really dark and twisted and I always like books like that:)

  27. Looking forward to reading Choker! I hope I love it. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to write my review without using the word "creepy" because that's the word that shows up in pretty much every review I've read of it!

    @Diana: You should request Angelfire from NetGalley!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You got a really great haul this week lady! I am more than a little jealous of everything! (especially Angelfire)!
    ;)

  32. I have the Yancey titles on my to-buy list for Bebe Boy James. I think I need to hook Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn up with some Melissa Marr. Choker was a pretty good, and creepy, read. I think you'll like it. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Aylee- Lol. Just checking. I'll take a picture of it and you can tell me if you want me to send it to you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Okay, just what are you up to? I'm very curious now, lol.

    I'm very curious about Choker, I'll be watching out for your review!

    And don't worry about not having read some of the books on my list, I have my own list of popular books that I haven't read yet, and it's horrible :D

  38. You got some great books! I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Angelfire.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm not up to nothing. lol. Just being nice. I just saw it and thought harry potter. Have you seen some of the other covers to the HP books. I don't know if they're SE or what but they're very different.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I hadn't even thought about The Monstrumologist for the Series challenge! I tried reading it about a year ago and it was only 1 of 2 DNF's for all of 2010... just couldn't get into it. But, I think I'm pretty alone in that opinion! I'll be looking forward to your review :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks for stopping by and commenting guys!

    @Nina: I just checked out that list :)
    @AngelicNytmare: Well, in Canada we have the British editions of the covers.
    @Katie: It doesn't sound like an easy read, you're right. But I'm committed to trying it out!

  45. Hum, these are like a black version I think.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Black version? Maybe they're the adult versions?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yeah crap I should have taken a picture of them. *note to self must remember to take picture* I tried to find the covers online, but I'm not having luck. Anyways sorry I'm loading you up with comments that aren't related to the post.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Nah, I don't mind. Did they look like this?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I want to say yes, but I honestly don't know. Me and my crappy memory. Now I have myself wondering. Oh what a night.
