In My Mailbox (56)

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by The Story Siren where we get to share the books we received over the week for review, purchase, loan or trade.

This week’s new arrivals:


Black Dawn (The Morganville Vampires #12) by Rachel Caine (NAL books hardcover) – Dropped everything to start reading this one.

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore (Graceling Realm #3) – Have been waiting for this book for years! Received from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

Blog tour:

Wrecked by Anna Davies – Described as aΒ seductive contemporary reimagination of The Little Mermaid, with a paranormal twist. Watch for a giveaway in May!

Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn (DAC ARC tour) – This looks like a lot of fun – it is about a girl that loves manga who gets involved in an art robbery investigation. It takes place on the streets of Seattle and Tokyo. Love the cover too.

eGalleys from NetGalley:

Gilt (The Royal Circle #1) by Katherine Longshore – A historical fiction book about the Tudor court. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while and it looks very intriguing!

Dark Companion by Marta Acosta – This book sounds very mysterious – it’s about a girl from the foster care system who is invited to attend an exclusive boarding school. And there is some sort of paranormal element involved – looks like an interesting dark, gothic sort of book.


Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler – The cover is so cute and I’ve had my eye on this one. I enjoyed Twenty Boy Summer by this author and this looks like another good contemporary read.

The Watch that Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic by Allan Wolf- A book written in verse about the Titanic story – told from multiple POV including passengers, crew, and even the iceberg and a rat!

What did you receive in your mailbox this week?

    You’ve got some great books! I just looked up “Wrecked” and that sounds really good and I love the cover too. I just recently got “Bittersweet” in the mail and that is going to be read very, very soon! I also have Twenty Boy Summer on my bookshelf. Good to know you liked that one!

    Happy Reading πŸ™‚

    I keep reading about Bitterblue but I really have no idea about the series it’s from at all but I do want to read Bittersweet, yay home you enjoy it!

  10. Oh Lucy, I’ve been looking for The Watch that ends the night for a loooong while now. I don’t think it’s available for loan in our library as yet, but I’ve been very intrigued by this novel especially when I learned that it is written in verse (is it? do confirm that one for me). And yes, Bittersweet also looks especially nice. The book cover of Gilt is fabulous. I hope they all prove to be great reads for you this week.

    Here’s mine over at GatheringBooks:

    1. Lucy says:

      Me too, Myra! The Watch looks really good. It’s almost 450 pages long but it is a verse novel so you can read it quickly. Hope you find it soon!

  11. Lucky you! I was so hoping that I would get Bitterblue from LT but I got This Is Not a Test =/ lol. I can’t wait to hear what you think! I loved Bittersweet! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

  12. Snap. These are some awesome books, especially GILT and BITTERBLUE. I’m reading Bitterblue right now and it’s fantastic!

    Also curious to see what you think of The Watch That Ends The Night.

    Happy reading πŸ™‚

    Ok, so I finally got my hands on Fire; I’m in chapter 5 on the audiobook! I really really like it so far and that means I’m one step closer to Bitterblue! :p Enjoy your books!
