In My Mailbox {63}

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

Got some cool stuff this week! Two requested and three fun surprises! :D

For Review:
The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
This sounds like a fun MG! I love stories like The Time Travelers and Mysterious Benedict Society so I'm hoping this is as great as those were!

Airborne by Constance Sharper
This sounds unique and intriguing! Harpies! I've never seen those as the "featured creature" in YA fiction!

The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle
Oh, this one looks like a sad one, I'll need to stock up on my couch-side kleenex! :)

Faerie Winter by Janni Lee Sumner
New faerie stories are always welcome in my tbr pile! I haven't read Bones of Faerie, so I'll have to track that one down first---don't want to be lost!

Flip by Martyn Bedford
Looks interesting! A boy wakes up one day and doesn't recognize his life or the face staring back at him in the mirror!

Many thanks to Random House, Candace Sharper, and HarperTeen!

So, question: Would anyone be interested in seeing a shelf tour from me? Not sure if I will, and certainly not sure of my video-making skills (haha), but just seeing if people enjoy these! :D
