Mailbox Monday (80)

Mailbox Monday buttonMailbox Monday is a weekly event where we share our latest book arrivals. Link up and find new mailboxes to stalk at the Mailbox Monday blog!

I’ve been sick with a cold for a few days so haven’t been reading or online as much. But I’m excited to catch up with some of these new pretties.

Won and borrowed:

MM 80 Books

Deeper by Robin York – I won a signed copy of the book from the author (aka Ruthie Knox!) I loved this e-galley and all of you New Adult fans should check this one out.

Champion by Marie Lu – Hooray for libraries coming through with the audiobook. Now to see how this series ends!

Dirt Candy cookbook by Amanda Cohen & Ryan Dunlavey – Dirt candy= vegetables! This cookbook is from the NY vegetarian restaurant of the same name. I didn’t get a chance to visit when I was there but I’m eager to try out a recipe or two. It is an unusual cookbook in that it’s in graphic novel format!

Netgalley new arrivals:

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina – This book looks really cool and is an Australian dystopia about the interrogation of a leader of “Illegals” (persons with unique abilities.)

The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu – A book about gossip, rumors and bullying and the toll it takes on the victim.

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel – A contemporary Peter Pan story from Wendy Darling’s pov! She’s searching for her missing surfer brothers.

Before You Break by Christina Lee – A standalone companion novel to last year’s All of You about a bad boy baseball player and a studious girl.

On the Road to Find Out by Rachel Toor – A girl gets denied to the college of her dreams and sets off running! I’m not a runner but maybe this book will inspire me to start! (It’s also supposedly about rats and the college selection process)

Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg – Can a guy and a girl be best friends? Macallan and Levi’s friendship causes trouble in their respective love lives- are they destined for something more?

What’s new in your mailbox? Did you do anything fun this weekend?

    I really like Knox’s adult romances and hope that you like her NA book. Second Star sounds pretty interesting, too. I haven’t read too many Peter Pan books, but I always buy them. I should probably read some of them. 🙂

    Dirt Candy cookbook – love that name!

    enjoy all your books!

  20. […] Serena 1. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina because it’s set in a different country and is dystopian, but also combines “supernatural” like people (the leader of the illegals who have unique abilities), which I found on The Reading Date. […]
