In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!

I went on a crazy Amazon shopping spree this week... as in... oh I don't know... made about 3 or 4 separate orders? Their 4-for-3 deal! It get's me! Arghhh! I'm not going to show everything, because face it... I'm not going to read all of these books in a week anyway!

If you want to see the vlog version, click here!

  • Bound and Determined by Shayla Black
  • The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
  • This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen (review)
  • Willow by Julia Hoban
  • Divine by Mistake by P.C. Cast
  • Need by Carrie Jones
  • His Fantasies, Her Dreams by Sherrie L. King
I also got this today!

My first ARC!!! I'm so excited! Seriously, you have no idea how excited I am about this!!!

Other ARC's I got through NetGalley:
  • The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan
  • Fortunate Harbor by Emilie Richards
  • Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery
  • Alison's Wonderland by Alison Tyler
  • The Sleeping Beauty by Mercedes Lackey
Ah! I'm so excited for these. I'm reading The Mermaid's Mirror and I was so excited she mentioned Wicked the musical! I seriously geeked out for like 3 seconds and texted my husband and sister in law to tell them. I have a serious obsession with Wicked the musical. I finished Bound and Determined as well as This Lullaby already. Gotta catch up on my review! Also waiting on an ARC of Forgive My Fin's that I won on Facebook! So yay for an interesting week!

What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. I love Need, Hope you enjoy your books :)

  2. hi marie! congrats on your first arc! amazon gets to buy more too with their 4 for 3 deal but you should definitely check out book depository (sometimes their prices are cheaper than amazon and it's always free shipping no matter if you buy 1 or 10 books).

  3. I really liked Need, Willow is on my TBR shelf too and I'm looking forward to that! Enjoy your books.

  4. This Lullaby looks great, enjoy!

  5. Oooohh--going to see Wicked again in two weeks in SF!! YAY! :D
    Oh, wow, jealous of Forgive my Fins! I'm dying to read it! And congrats on your first couple of ARCs! And YAY for the Looking Glass Wars! I love that book (can't vouch for the rest of the series, I only read the first one, but it was a good one!)
    RYC: About Prophecy of Days...I usually check the online stores a few weeks before the release date for books I really want to read..some of them release a few days or weeks early!

  6. Great week.
    The 4 - for - 3 deal sounds good (it's so annoying that doesn't offer it).

    Congrats on your first ARC! I screamed and danced around when I got my first.

    I enjoyed the book by Shayla Black a lot and your other books also look great.

  7. Wow!I feel happy for you>I never read an ARC before.Wow.That's cool.

    And I've been wanting to read Need!Enjoy your reading!

  8. congrats on the ARC! Doing a happy dance for you :)

    Otherwise you have a fantastic mailbox there :) Don't worry that 4 for 3 thing gets everyone eventually!

  9. I've read Need, Willow, and The Looking Glass Wars and love them all. Hope you enjoy all of your books!

  10. Low Red Moon sounds good! :) Hope you enjoy all your books!

  11. Nice haul this week. Like you, I also went overboard this week (sigh). I am destined to be one of those crazy old ladies that lives alone with all of her cats & dogs, surrounded by piles and piles of books!

  12. Great set of books! I'm looking forward to reading Low Red Moon.

  13. Yay you got your first ARC! Exciting! I hope you like it. The Looking Glass Wars sounds interesting. I've heard really good things about it. Divine By Mistake is on my TBR list. I love the new covers on this series. I really liked Need and Captivate. I think you'll enjoy them too. I hope you do anyway!

    Have a great week!

  14. Wow, great haul! I have a oopy of Willow and This Lullaby too and I can't wait to read them, but I'll also be looking forward to your reviews! :)

  15. This Lullaby is my favorite book by Sarah Dessen and if you ask most people, I'm sure they'll say that it is their favorite from her too.
    I was excited to read Need by Carrie Jones but was left quite disappointed.
    I've been meaning to read something from P.C. Cast....
    Hope you like the books!

  16. Really wished I live in the US, Amazon canada never has any sales and it wouldnt be worth it buying books from the US site.

    Willow was so good, it made me cry so much. Happy reading!
