Mailbox Monday #4

May 20, 2012 Mailbox Monday, Young Adult 16

Mailbox Monday is a weekly event started by Marcia, and is now on tour with a different blog hosting each month. Martha of Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf is the host for the month of May.

It was a pretty light book week for me, so that gives me a chance to catch up on my reading.

This week I received:


Won:

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa – Thank you to Sarah from Miss Page-Turner’s City of Books. I’m a big fan of Kagawa’s Iron Fey books, and this vampire dystopian looks to be quite the departure, but I can’t wait to check it out.

eGalleys from NetGalley & Edelweiss:

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry -This is a July 31 release from Harlequin Teen. Looks like an intense romance, and I like that it has a dual narrative.

Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson – This is a March 2013 release from Alfred A. Knoph & there’s no cover art yet. Described as “A sweeping Gothic thriller based on the spine-chilling “Bluebeard” fairytale.” I like fairytale retellings & this one sounds intriguing.

Bought:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Audiobook read by Kate Rudd. I’ve already read (and loved) the book but couldn’t resist the Customer Favorites sale on Audible. The audiobook has gotten some great reviews and I think it’s worth a re-read anyway.

Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover – Kindle edition. This series was recommended to me on Goodreads and it sounds pretty good – contemporary YA with a twist.

Hope you received some great books this week. Let me know in the comments!

    I also got Pushing the Limits off NetGalley and I didn’t know it had a dual-narrative so that is awesome! It looks quite good but I have a weird hunch it’ll totally blow me away.

    Happy reading!

    Most of these are new to me. Even with a light week I find I can never get caught up! Enjoy your new books.

    AaaaH! Amazing mailbox! I seriously loved The Immortal Rules–it was the first of Julie’s books I’ve actually read, and can’t wait to pick up the Iron Fey, now! Hope you love :)

    It looks like you’ve got a good haul. I also got THE IMMORTAL RULES this week. Hope you enjoy reading all five books.

    Immortal Rules was really good, different from her others series but it definitely draws you in. Enjoy all your books this week :)

    As always you keep adding to my To Read pile. :) I’ll be reading John Green’s newest very soon. My daughter is bringing me her copy – she insists that I read it (I was going to anyway). Looking forward to it!
