In My Mailbox {42}

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

Well, I had a fantastic book week. I think I did the happy dance so many times this week that I lost a few pounds! (Probably a good thing seeing that the holidays are quickly sneaking up on us!) Here's what I got...
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This one is getting great reviews already, so I can wait to dig in. Plus, the title makes me think of one of my fave Beatles songs :)

Banished by Sophie Littlefield
Love the sound of this one. Its about a girl with the magical power to heal---a pretty unique idea in the YA world.

The Jumper Chronicles: Quest for Merlin's Map by W. C. Peever
My husband and I both plan to read this one---its sounds like a fantastic adventure story!

Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
I've gushed about this cover a few times here on the blog, I absolutely love it. And the whole fish out of water theme is one that I always enjoy!

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
This one has always intrigued me with that oh-so-creepy cover!

Wildwing by Emily Whitman
I only just realized that I've read this author before! I loved her book Radiant Darkness, so I'm hoping this one is just as amazing!

Wither by Lauren DeStephano
This dystopian debut sounds so amazing, and that cover takes my breath away!

Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst
An alternate magical Princeton? I've been wanting to read this one for a long time!

(Huge thanks to Mary of, Harperteen, Random House, Paul at Savant Books, and my lovely local libraries!)

Hope you all had a great book week, too! I can't wait to see what everyone got. I'm currently processing all the entries for the Beautiful Darkness/Crescendo Giveaway so check back later for the big announcement! Also, I'm participating in the great Gratitude Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer, so come back Wednesday because I'll be giving away some great stuff!! Have a great week, everyone, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm drooling on my keyboard over your ARC of Across the Universe. I've actually pre-ordered it, which I hardly ever do. Thanks for allowing us to see it!

  2. Amazing books this week! I love the cover for Wildwing! Enjoy. =D

  3. Oh my goodness! You got an ARC of Wither--please excuse me while I stare at it. xD It looks like such a promising book; I can't wait to see what you think of it! And Across the Universe as well! What an amazing mail week that you've had!
    Happy reading! <3
