In My Mailbox [3]

In My Mailbox is sponsored by The Story Siren :)

GREAT week! I made a teeny-tiny backtrack in my Book Buying Ban, but I managed to find a copy of a really cool book for under $10, because I'm thrifty like that!
But I got a few cool books for review. I'm still relatively new to the whole 'sent books for review' thing, so I was just tickled pink to receive:

For Review
The Darlings are Forever - Melissa Kantor
Red Moon Rising - Peter Moore
Mad Love - Suzanne Selfors
Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance - Emily Franklin & Brendan Halpin
Unearthly - Cynthia Hand

Special thanks to Hyperion Teen, Bloomsbury USA & Harper Teen

Bought
Ken Burns' Civil War documentary (on sale - oh yeah!)
- Yes, I watch documentaries...I know...

I already finished Mad Love and Red Moon Rising (when you've got a doctor's note excusing you from work and school, it's kinda like having one of Willy Wonka's Golden Tickets) and am starting J&J now. Christina, Mad Love is on its way!

What did you guys get this week?

13 shout-outs!:

First, I love that you watch documentaries! I was super excited to find a new one on sale at Target last week (America: The Birth of Freedom --- I'm a "founding era" fanatic), but very few people get excited with me. :)

Your other books look great too. I especially like the cover for "Mad Love."
Have a great week!

Great books in your mailbox! I'm looking forward to reading Unearthly, so hope it lives up to the awesome cover. Enjoy!

I can't wait to read your review of Unearthly. I'm on the waiting list at my library. I don't usually like "angel fiction" but everywhere I look there is another positive review.

Thanks for the opportunity to read Mad Love! I liked your comment about the Golden Ticket. I hope you are feeling better. When I'm sick sadly I usually feel too sick to read.

Did you see America, The Story of Us? I started watching it but didn't get to see all of the episodes. I thought the part about the American Revolution was fascinating. Hope you enjoy your books (and documentary)!

Ken Burns' has done some great work! I loved the series he did on America's National Parks. Yes, I watch PBS too. A lot of it. :P I have an ARC of Mad Love that I'll likely be starting soon and all the others are on my wishlist! Happy reading. :D

I got Unearthly too and it looks quite good. I'll be curious to hear how The Darlings Are Forever is, I've heard a lot about it. Happy reading!

Misha said...

Happy Reading!

Missie said...

Amelia, I'm totally loving the covers for Mad Love and of course Unearthly. Awesome books this week, and good job on finding those deals on books!

Hope you enjoy.
