In My Mailbox (73)

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.

Just the usual library haul this week. I'm cooling it with the buying as I'm moving the first week of March and don't need extra stuff to pack:
Everneath Book 1 by Brodi Ashton-For those living under a rock this has become the it novel of January 2012 and I finally got it off reserve. While I do wish YA would pick another myth besides Persephone to do (there are count em THREE series based on the myth currently on-going and I know at least two books that redid it recently) I am still excited to read this.
Gods and Monsters Book 1: Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton-This was one of those books I never heard about when it was released and I like to give unsung novels a little love sometimes (assuming I like the book). This is a paranormal taking place in New Orleans and heaven knows I love my southern gothic novels.
The Lying Game Book 2: Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepard-Surprisingly I got into the first Lying Game book. I say surprising because I found PLL a chore to get through even though I did dig the mystery (and I'm helplessly addicted to the TV show despite how cheesy bad it is). So I'm continuing the series (and yes, I'm helplessly addicted to Lying Game too, especially after they added Charisma Carpenter who I have a life-long fondness for after Buffy/Angel, plus it has the guy who played Nathan from Heroes)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater-Been meaning read this (and Forever) for awhile now, I've just been sidetracked all year.


  1. Nice mailbox! I know what you mean about moving...last time we moved, it felt like 50% of the boxes were books! Yikes! Like the sound of Everneath, as I love the story of Persephone and Hades! Enjoy!

    Here's my IMM.

  2. i heard great things about everneath. sounds like you got a bunch of great books this week. enjoy :)

    hope you check out our IMM.


  3. Nice library haul this week! I too have been meaning to read the Stiefvater books, I haven't even gotten to Shiver yet! There are just so many good books out there, impossible to read them all unfortunately, too bad we can't get paid to read right?!? Hehe...

    Enjoy everything you got this week! You can check out my IMM at the link below :)

  4. Good IMM! I read Everneath a few days ago! It was a great book! I hope you enjoy it! Actually, I've read every book in your IMM this week. XD In my opinion, The Scorpio Races is the best. I hope you have a great reading week!

  5. Moving is so much fun! I mean, with the possibilities of someplace new and all.

    I've just started Everneath and it's quite decent. Also, rock on with The Scorpio Races, I heard that was a great book.

  8. Oh, I'm very curious about The Scorpio Races. I don't know why, but I haven't bought it yet. Hmm. I hope you'll enjoy it! (And you should read Forever. Even though I'm a little wary about Stiefvater, I really thought this one was great!)
