In My Mailbox {22}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

Ok, here what I got! Mostly library stuff, although I wasn't at work much this week because I was sick, sick, sick.

~Revolution is a ARC tour book---I'm just finishing it up today, but it was quite a whopper of a book to get through in a week, at close to 500 pages and heavy subject matter!! My review will be up in a few days.
~I've been wanting to read John Green for awhile and I found this one on the shelf so I grabbed it.
~Not sure where I heard about Damosel, but its about the Lady of the Lake from the King Arthur legends,...sounds good to me!
~Newes from the Dead takes place in the 1600s during the witch hunts and its about a girl who is hanged and then wakes up again right before they are about to dissect her!! Sounds creeeeepy!
~And last but not least, The Luxe series. What do ya'll think? Would you recommend this series? I have long been drawn to these gorgeous dresses on the covers, but I am not much into the "gossip girl" type stories, and I once heard them compared to those. What can you tell me about these? Do you think I'll enjoy them?

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
Damosel by Stephanie Spinner
Newes from the Dead by Mary Hooper
The Luxe by Anne Godbersen

Also, be sure to check back in this week---I went to bed one night thinking, hey I'm getting close to 200 followers, and the next morning I woke up with 215!! So I think its time to celebrate!! So be on the lookout for my 6-month-blogoversary-slash-200-follower GIVEAWAY!!

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. I really want to read Revolution! I'll be looking forward to your review on it.
    I love The Luxe series, it kind of is like Gossip Girl, but in the early 1900's and so much more entertaining.

  2. I really want to read Revolution as well. I will have to keep my eye out for your review. I loved The Luxe series. I actually JUST finished the last book today. I loved the fact that it took place in the late 1890's and early 1900's! I hope you enjoy all your books!

  3. I was obsessed with The Luxe!! I haven't read past the first book in the series yet, but you know that one's a chunker and I just couldn't put it down! Perfect fun read for summer :)

  4. I've had The Luxe for years and never read it lol. I'm starting to think I should some day soon :) enjoy your new books!

  5. I hope you enjoy Revolution. I will be reading that one for an ARC tour as well. Damasel and Newes From the Dead both sound really interesting. I liked the Luxe series but I haven't read (and don't plan to read) the Gossip Girl series. I hope you'll enjoy all your books!

  6. Good selection this week: Happy Reading! Here is my IMMB if you want a peek: Blkosiner Book Blog

  7. The Luxe series is my favorite series ever! I just love it so much! The first one is alright, but they get really good! Stick with them! I love them! :) Not at all like Gossip Girl.

  8. Awesome books! I just finished Revolution too, I really enjoyed it. I tried reading The Luxe once but couldn't really get into it, but I know lots of other people liked it.

  9. Great books this week. I really want to read Revolution. Oh and I loved The Luxe series. Happy reading!

  10. Ooh wonderful books this week! An Abundance of Katherines was so good, really different. And I love The Luxe series they're SO much better than the Gossip Girl series. Happy reading :D
