Mailbox Monday (83)

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!

This week we got some rain so that was exciting! (We’re in a severe drought here in California) We were able to score Comic-Con tickets again this year, phew! And today I went with my daughter to the movies to see The Lego Movie, which is so fun. My reading has been a little slow this month, I’m not sure why. But maybe one of these books will snap me out of my mini reading rut!

Netgalley/Edelweiss new arrivals:

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout – A paranormal romance about a half gargoyle/half demon girl. Gargoyles!

Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn – This YA psychological thriller sounds so creepy – a troubled girl comes back to town and tells her brother she’s not the crazy one- he is.

On The Fence by Kasie West – This looks so cute- it’s a best friends romance about a tomboy and the boy next door.

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord – I was so happy to receive this one! This is such a “me” book – music, romance, road trip, summer.

I See London by Chanel Cleeton – In this New Adult book, Maggie leaves South Carolina to attend school in London and gets in deep with a guy.

The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel – This is about a girl who gets paid $100 paypal cash to break-up couples at her high school.


The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd – Thank you Kathy at BermudaOnion!

My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead – Thank you Audiobook Jukebox!

Also grabbed these audiobooks from the library: Cartwheel, Reality Boy, These Broken Stars, and A Mad, Wicked Folly.

Secret Society Girl by Diana Peterfreund – Sent and signed by the author with a swag pack of goodies – thank you, Diana! I’ve been wanting to read this Pre-New Adult series from 2006. Ahead of its time!


Love Show by Audrey Bell – This New Adult book is getting some rave reviews so for $0.99 I had to take a chance! (Amazon)

The Archived by Victoria Schwab – This book is also on promo for $0.99 to support the sequel, The Unbound. Awesome deal! (Amazon)

    I really enjoyed the Secret Society Series; it was NA before NA became popular, and I remember wishing there were more books of a similar setting. Hope you enjoy it, as well as your other books!
