In My Mailbox (8)

Heyooo, another IMM post from Lost Amongst the Shelves! This is one of my fave memes because its the best way bloggers get to show everyone one books they got for the week. And basically makes me insanely jealous of all the cool books everyone gets. It's hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren.

So this week I FINALLY got the Amazon order that I've been dying to get my hands on for what felt like forever. Turns out that since the books I ordered made the box so heavy they had to deliver it a littler later than expected (because they were all hardcovers). That's how bad my impulse shopping is. So here are the books...

(A certain someone had to get his camera time- that's my baby Jack!)

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

Author request (ebook)

Wanderlove by Belle Malory

That's it for me! Tell me what you got this week and leave a link to your IMM. I'll be sure to go and check it out =)


  1. Oh my gosh, those are all books I've been so excited to read! Silence especially (because I'm dying to know what happens with Nora and Patch!), but I've heard SO much buzz about the other four that I'm bouncing up and down with excitement because YOU have them LOL! x)

    Awesome mailbox, Kristan! I hope you enjoy all of your books and I can't wait to read your reviews! Have an awesome Sunday! :)

  2. Oh wow, you got some awesome books this week! I have Hush Hush on my shelf right now, haven't started it yet.. I'm really interested to see what Carrier of the Mark and A Beautiful Dark are like! Hope Wanderlove is a good one too ;)

    Happy Reading!!! You can see my IMM for this week at the link below :)

  7. So lucky that you got Silence i so need to get some money so i can get it i cant wait any longer lol!

  8. No wonder your box was heavy! Were you stalking your mailman, waiting for the box to arrive?

    Jack is cute, does he get jealous when you read? I have a cat who gets very jealous when I have a book, my kindle or my laptop.

    Enjoy your books!

  9. Looks like some really good ones! Hope you enjoy them, and can't wait to see what you think. :)


  10. What an awesome Amazon delivery! No wonder you were waiting impatiently! I loved loved loved The Name of the Star - it'll be a perfect spooky Halloween book.

    Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy your new books!

  11. YAY you have Carrier and Name of the Star (which i still need to read), I really hope you enjoy them. Your other books look good too :D

  12. I haven't seen Wanderlove before. Looks pretty interesting. Is it wrong that I think of Pocahontas when I see the cover?

    Great buys...and cute pet:)

    And to answer the question you posted on my IMM: No, I haven't. The site just went under construction, so I can't get on it until they open it back up. But it's okay--I think I'll just have a giveaway of that ARC and just buy a new copy elsewhere. Thanks so much, and I hope you enjoy all your awesome books! Happy reading!

  23. Ooh, I've been dying to read Silence. Looks like you got some great books this week. Enjoy your reading! :)
