In My Mailbox {29}

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

Here's what I got!
For Review:
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Was SO excited to see this one in my mailbox. This has been one of my most anticipated books of this year. I'm almost done actually and from about page 2, I've had a girl-crush on Evie. :)
Thank you, HarperTeen!

The Flash of a Firefly by Amber Riley
The author contacted me to review this one, and after reading the first chapter on her blog, I can't wait to get to the rest of it! Thank you, Amber!

Pegasus by Robin McKinley
*Swoon*Another of my most anticipated books for this year!! I cannot wait to crack this one open! Thank you, thank you, Mary, for the fabulous trade!!

Bright Young Things (7 chapter sneak peek) by Anna Godbersen
I was lucky enough to win this one on a twitter contest held by the publisher. This will be my first by this author (I never did get to read Luxe when I checked it out from the library!) and I'm excited---I love the 20's era! Thanks again, HarperCollins!

Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton
This one is not a YA book, but I saw this series reviewed on Juju's site, and she spoke so highly of it, I couldn't resist! Magical spells, mystical creatures and ...knitting?? Oh, yeah. I'm in.

The Presence by Eve Bunting
I saw this one in the publishers catalog and was intrigued---but then I discovered that its actually a rerelease, and the original was sitting right on my library bookshelf! I love a good ghost story!

That's all for me! Show me what you got! :)


  1. I won Bright Young Things on Twitter too! I'm super excited about it. I loved the Luxe series and can't wait to take that same kind of thing into the 20's. It's going to be so much fun.
    Read It, See It

  2. Oh my gosh!! I am really excited for you!! All your books look amazing! I should have a vlog up for my imm on monday:)

  3. The top row looks beautiful! Haha, they're all on my TBR/wishlist. Especially PEGASUS!!! I wish I had my own copy of it, too. There aren't any blogger trades (ARC or any) over here in Australia. :(

  4. Lucky! You got Paranormalcy AND Pegasus!! I can't wait to hear what you think about them! =)
