In My Mailbox (57)

This is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren that tells people what new books we've gotten over the week. Since I haven't been able to do this for two weeks (darn work...) I'm going to include bought books from the last two weeks as well as this week. As always all the links in this post go to the book's Amazon page if you want more info.

Downloaded to Kindle (aka I love the new monthly deals thing they're doing way too much):
Pretense for Murder by Karen L. Abrahamson-Freebie that's a mystery with a paranormal twist apparently. Some point in time I will start to actually get to all these mysterys I download...
The Bloodhoud Files Book 1: Dying Bites by DD Barant-UF I've been curious about. Currently on sale for 2.99
The Paranormals Book 1: Jenny Pox by JL Bryan. Currently a freebie. Another UF thing.
Night Huntress Book 1: Halfway to the Grave by Jeanine Frost-One of the many UF book series I'm trying out. Now currently 1.99 on Kindle.
Mistborn Book 1: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson-I've heard many good things about this adult fantasy/steampunk series. It's now back to regular pricing though.

Bought at Barnes and Noble:
The Steampunk Chronicles Book 1: The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross-I've been eager to read this one for awhile and I finally gave into that gorgeous cover. ;pets the pretty;
Paranormalcy Trilogy Book 2: Supernaturally by Kierstan White-FINALLY got my hands on a copy of the sequel to one of my favorite books from last year. Can't wait to finally read it.

From the library this week:
The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch-Apparently about witches which is why I picked it up. We need more YA books about witches.
Shadow Falls Book 1: Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter-Paranormal thing that looks interesting.
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick-I read this way back when it first came out and remember loving it. I'm super pumped for the movie (coming out on my birthday!) and am rereading it to refresh my memory.
Shade Book 2: Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready-Shade was another favorite from last year so I'm really eager to get to this one.

That's all for me! What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. Girl in the Steel corset is wonderful! Hope you enjoy

    My IMM:

    Hope you're having an excellent weekend!

  2. I just finished Born At midnight and loved it ! It definitely has a younger feel to it than in the books I have been reading lately, but it was in a pleasant way. It didn't take too much concentration and it flowed easily. The quirky characters were very like-able and I found myself chuckling to myself alot :) hope you like it as well as I did. I haven't read any of your others yet, but they are already on my lists. At the moment I am working through a stack of many from the library. But at the top is Wolfsbane- a nightshade novel: Andrea Cremer. As well as Entwined by Heather Dixon :) Happy reading and Blogging

  3. Fab set! I really need to read Supernaturally soon. I want to read Jeri Smith's series too.

  6. I really enjoyed Shade! I think I liked it better than Shift, and I can't wait to see where the next book in the trilogy takes us!

  7. Nice haul there :D I've got Supernaturally by Kierstan White on my kindle. I really enjoyed the first one Paranormalcy.

  8. I am exactly the same, I download the cheap and free books for the kindle and it takes me ages to get round to reading them. I hope you enjoy your haul this week.
