Mailbox Monday #4

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!

  1. 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!
