In My Mailbox: (#26)



In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we spotlight the books that we've received for review, swapped, or purchased that week.


BOUGHT:

Silence, by Michelle Sagara
The Peculiars, by Maureen Doyle McQuerry



Under the Never Sky, by Veronica Rossi
Obsidian, by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Hemlock, by Kathleen Peacock



Poison Study, by Maria V. Snyder


SWAG:

From Sarah Walsh




From Ellie James


*Warning: Below is an extremely long post in which I rant a ton about the books I got.  Ye be warned.*

Wow what a great week I’ve had.  So many great books!!
I actually got all the swag on Monday.  I opened my mailbox and there were two packages, one from Sarah Walsh and the other from Ellie James.  I literally started jumping up and down and running around the house when I saw the t-shirt, because you don’t get swag like that every day.
Last week I made a humungous order off of Amazon and this week I got the books.
I got Poison Study on Tuesday and literally ran around the house screaming.  This book was so freaking amazing, and even though I’ve already read it, I had to buy it because it’s one of the few books that have truly blown me away and that I will read again.  Now I have the entire Study series, which I’m really excited about!
On Wednesday I got the rest of my order.
I am super excited about The Girl in the Steel Corset because steampunk is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres, and I’ve heard so many amazing things about this book, so I just had to buy it.
Silence and The Peculiars are two other steampunk books that I’m super excited about.  The one thing that never fails with steampunk books are the covers.  They always have gorgeous covers, always, and, as you guys know, I’m a sucker for pretty covers, so I usually can’t resist buying them.
Hemlock I got for a funny reason.  It’s a poison.  And the reason I got it is because I read Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, so now whenever I see a title that is a poison I want it.  I know, it’s a horrible reason, but I seriously can’t help myself.
I wasn’t originally going to get Obsidian because I didn’t think it looked that good and that I would enjoy it, but after all the rave reviews I’ve read both on blogs and Goodreads I just had to get myself a copy.  And one thing I’ve noticed about covers is that most of the time if there’s a guy posing, he usually isn’t that cute, but on this cover, he is gorgeous, so super excited to read this one.
And the last book I got this week I’m really excited for.  I got Under the Never Sky for another embarrassing reason: the book trailer *hides in shame* yes I know I know it’s horrible, but seriously, the book trailer is so freaking good.  Anyway, after seeing it I just had to buy myself a copy and I can’t wait to start it!


What did you guys get this week?

  5. I read and loved TOUCH OF POWER by Maria V. Snyder. I've heard that I should read POISON STUDY next. After your rant, I know that I must get a copy for myself! UNDER THE NEVER SKY is probably my favorite dystopian this year along with INSURGENT and PANDEMONIUM. Hope you enjoy! :)
