Mailbox Monday #9
Mailbox Monday is a weekly event created by Marcia that travels to a new blog each month. Join in to share your book loot and discover some new book blogs. Jennifer at Mrs. Q Book Addict is the host for the month of July.
I broke my wrist last week and so typing (and most everything else) is slow going. My family has offered to type my reviews for me in the meantime
These are the books I received last week:
Love on the Edge: Going Too Far and Forget You by Jennifer Echols – I loved Such A Rush (review coming soon) and wanted to read some of Echols’ other titles. I’m reading Going Too Far now.
The Trylle series trilogy (Switched, Torn and Ascend) audiobooks by Amanda Hocking, Narrated by Therese Plummer – won from Once Upon A Twilight – thanks!
Audiobooks for Review:
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness, Narrated by Jennifer Ikeda – I have the audio of A Discovery of Witches so I’ll listen to these back to back.
The Orphan Master by Jean Zimmerman, Narrated by George Guidall - A mystery set in 1663 New Amsterdam (now lower Manhattan).
Books for Review:
Once by Anna Carey – for a blog tour stop later this month
Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan – for a blog tour stop in August
Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis – Sounds fun! It takes place in 1977, and from the description: “Audrey Couloumbis’s YA debut is a smooth-talking Cyrano meets Saturday Night Fever and tells a quirky, flirty, and smart story that will appeal to fans of Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Frank Portman’s King Dork, Natalie Standiford’s How to Say Goodbye in Robot, and John Green’s An Abundance of Katherines.“
Mystic City by Theo Lawrence – Looks like a cool sci-fi dystopian.
Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron anthology by Jonathan Strahan – featuring short stories by Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Diana Peterfreund, Margo Lanagan, Peter S. Beagle, Garth Nix and more.
All you Never Wanted by Adele Griffin – A story about sibling rivalry that sounds intense.
Purity by Jackson Pearce
The False Prince Audiobook by Jennifer A. Nielsen, Narrated by Charlie McWade
Sync YA free audiobook downloads of the week:
The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud, Narrated by Simon Jones
