In My Mailbox: 2/26 - 3/3

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme is about books that you received or bought during the week.

For Review

 A huge thank you to Scholastic, Houghton Mifflin, Zonderkidz, Villard, and to authors M. Clifford and Bill Rolfe for sending me these books to review!


Big thanks to Ezmirelda @ PARAFANTASY for Havoc, Stephanie @ Misprinted Pages for A Wrinkle in Time, Kimberly @ Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer for Half-Blood, and to Alfred A. Knopf for the *SIGNED* Wolf Gift broadprint!!


 I was bad this week! I found some CRAZY deals & I couldn't resist!! I'll just have to add all these to my TBR list....

ALSO - Did you notice the new look? I took the time to give the blog a makeover, so it feels more like my personality. Hope you like it!

What did you get in the mail this week? Leave links in the comments!


  1. Pandemonium! I adored it! Get ready for one heck of a ride, and the same goes for Divergent. And don't even get me started on Halflings! It's one of the best books I've read so far this year! I hope you love them all :)

  2. Thanks for commenting on my IMM :)

    Wow, you got loads of books! I really need to read Delirium and Pandemonium - they look so great. Same goes for Clarity and Perception. Hope you enjoy all your books :)

  3. WOW Great haul!!! I loved Pandemonium although now I'm just dying for Requiem! I also loved Divergent, all the Vampire Academy books as well as Bloodlines(Adrian *swoons*) and Across the Universe. You got lots of other goodies I really want to read like Pure, Illuminate, Blood Red Road, Graceling, and Felinian. I have Half-Blood but still haven't been able to have time to read it yet. Happy Reading and Thanks for visiting My IMM!

  4. Oh my gosh, WOW! Your mailbox is practically combustible with how much amazingness is inside it!! Perception was AMAZING, and I really want to read to read Grave Mercy. Plus, all of those books you bought are definitely worth the purchase! Especially Pandemonium -- I'm so excited to get my hands on that one! x)

  10. Oh Grave Mercy was pretty great, it was a nice change of pace in the YA genre to have a great historical adventure.

    Perception wasn't as great as the first book, Clarity. I thought Clarity was much more original whereas Perception just seemed so similar to several books I've read.

    Half-Blood is really great but the sequel, Pure, is amazing! You have to read that series as soon as you can.

    Looks like you bought several great books as well, I can't wait to watch out for some of your reviews/thoughts on them. :)

    Thank you for stopping by Pages of Forbidden Love.

  11. lol. I understand the being bad. I definitely had a few too many weeks in a row where I was bringing in more books than I could read. This has caused me to temporarily stop buying books. They each deserve their chance to be read. But it is killing me. Other great books have come out since and I really want them. I also desperately want Insurgent so I must get caught up before that comes out so I can buy it and read it right away. Plus, having just read the ARC for Sweet Evil I must have my own hard copy. So I better get back to reading. You got a great haul there. Good luck reading.

  12. Wow, you had one heck of a week! Looks like you did find ll the deals. Divergent, Across the Universe and Darkness Becomes Her are some of my favorites. Happy reading!

  13. What great books! I still have to pick up a copy of The Replacement. It was a Shelf Candy pick somewhere around Halloween. Enjoy your reads.
