Mailbox Monday (86)

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!

In the last few days we’ve gotten lots of rain, which we desperately need. Good time to stay indoors with a good book! I don’t usually get a lot of books in the mail, but of course this week I got several wet and soggy packages. Luckily the books inside were fine though.


cress and tilt audiobooks

Cress by Marissa Meyer – Thanks Audiobook Jukebox and Macmillan Audio! I just finished listening to Scarlet so I’m ready to dig into this.

Tilt by Ellen Hopkins – Thanks to Simon & Schuster Audio! A favorite author and favorite audiobook narrators = happiness!

Print Books:

biggest flirts and happily ever after

Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols – Thanks to Simon Pulse! This is the first book in the Superlatives series about two people that are voted Biggest Flirts in their yearbook elections.

Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Maxwell – Thanks to Touchstone/Simon & Schuster! This is about a middle aged erotic novelist who meets her fictional romantic hero in real life, at Target!


The Last Forever by Deb Caletti – Tessa and her dad go on a roadtrip to heal after losing her mom.

100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith – Andrew Smith gets the most interesting book covers, matching up with the unique stories within.

Sublime by Christina Lauren – The “Beautiful Bastard” writing team has a new YA book! Sublime is about a boy in love with a ghost- he can only see her when he’s on the brink of death himself, so that encourages his risky behavior. What an epic cover, huh?

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – Well, this is going to the top of my TBR! CoHo’s latest is about a musician whose life is turned upside down when she catches her boyfriend with her good friend. She falls for another musician next door.

The Only Boy by Jordan Locke – This YA dystopia is about a future world without men. But one guy did survive, and now he’s masquerading as a woman to avoid execution. Mary has never seen a boy but she’s drawn to Taylor.

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian – A New Adult dystopia! A beta reader on Goodreads describes it as The Hunger Games meets Lost.


take me there and never eighteen

Take Me There by Carolee Dean – From Paperback Swap. A road trip book from 2010 about friendship, love and second chances.

Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic – Thanks for the trade, Lisa! Never Eighteen is a YA contemporary from 2012 about a dying boy who journey’s to say goodbye and make peace with the important people in his life.

    Cress! This is the 1st I’ve heard of the new Smith book. He definitely doesn’t fit in a square box. I have both Swapped books in the school library, but just haven’t gotten around to them. Looking forward to the reviews to come.

  2. Take Me There looks good — I love road trip books.

    Tilt looks pretty good too, Kirby Heybourne is so fantastic.

    Yayyy physical copy of The Biggest Flirts! Happy reading. 🙂

  3. from mailbox monday – 4 new audiobooks – 2 mystery, 1 jane austen and 1 contemp romance… but right now? reading/listening to EMMA for a group read/chat group online at

    hapPy reading!

  4. BermudaOnion says:

    I’ll be interested to see what you think of Tilt – I love Hopkins’ writing but am not sure how it would be on audio.

  5. Amy says:

    I pre-ordered Maybe Someday . I’m also looking forward to reading Sublime.

  6. fishgirl182 says:

    Oh Colleen Hoover. I am sure you’re excited about that. And I got Sublime, too. It looks so interesting. and Cress! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. I still need to write my review. And that Jennifer Echols book looks good. So many fun books this week. Hope you’ve been staying dry this weekend, Lucy. Happy reading!

  7. Bluestocking says:

    I read Cress a couple of weeks ago. What did you think?

    Here is mine

  8. Tammy Sparks says:

    I agree, that Andrew Smith cover is one of my faves of the year so far. Looks like we both got that one and Sublime! I hope you enjoy the Cress audio!

  9. Hi Lucy,

    One way or another, you have a great haul of new books this week and whilst many of them may not be from genres which instantly set my pulse racing, I hope that you enjoy them all.

    You are quite welcome to some of the rain which has deluged the South of the UK for the last 3 months or so. Fields look like lakes and whole areas of trees have been felled by the gale force winds. Things seem to have turned the corner a little now, however forecasters have now predicted a long hot Summer, which is even worse as far as I’m concerned!

    Have a great week and enjoy all your great new finds,


  10. Happily Ever After sounds awesome. Love that idea!
    I think I’ve forgotten what rain is – I’m actually hoping it will rain soon, but it’s unlikely!
    Happy reading 🙂

  11. Elizabeth says:

    Very nice week and mailbox. ENJOY all your books.

    I’m looking forward to Cress. I listened to the first two on audio so I’ll probably do the same for this one!

  13. Great looking books! I especially like the look (and blurb) of Happily Ever After. Enjoy your week…and here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

  14. Vicki says:

    Looks like you had an awesome week for books!
    Never Eighteen sounds like a tear jerker!

  15. Quinn says:

    I audiobook for Cress is so, so, so good! I hope you like it.

    I wish it were raining her. But we still have snow. Snow, snow, snow. I’m glad you books weren’t ruined because of the rain.

  16. sagustocox says:

    Cress should be a good one…though I have not read that series yet. Snow again here today.

  17. Some interesting titles caught my eye.

  18. THE ONLY BOY has such a cool cover–I look forward to hearing what you think about that! I finished THE WICKED WE HAVE DONE recently–it wasn’t quite what I expected, so I’m curious what you’ll think of that one as well. Happy reading!

  19. Thomas says:

    Cress and Tilt will be fun to experience through audiobook format! I wasn’t even aware of Deb Caletti’s new upcoming release, so thank you for sharing that one with us.

  20. kay says:
