In My Mailbox {67}

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

Some cool stuff this week :)

For Review:
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Can't wait to start this one--ghosts, witches, and cowboys. Can't wait.

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
I read a really bizarre adult book by this author a few years ago, so I'm excited to get a taste of her YA work. No pun intended (see note below).

From the Library:
The Radleys by Matt Haig
I've seen mixed reviews of this one so we'll see what I think---that's the beauty of the library: nothing to lose! :D

Many thanks to Random House and Macmillan for the books for review. Macmillan especially won my heart by sending me this pretty little box that contained two of my favorite things: books and chocolate. :) Really, is there anything better??

New on My Nook!

Wildefire by Karsten Knight
I have an print copy of this as well, but I grabbed this from S & S Galley Grab---I love having both so I can read the book at home and the e-galley when I'm out and about. Take my Nook with me everywhere :)

Raven by Suzy Turner
I came across this when the author visited my blog. :) It looks great---family secrets, kind of story! Immediately bought this from Smashwords.

Well, that's all for me! To all you lucky ducks going to BEA this week, have a blast!! I am completely jealous and can't wait to see all your loot!!


  1. I've seen Texas Gothic pop up a few times on the blogs for IMM and I am now determined to get my hands on it lol. Same goes for All These Things I've Done. It comes in awesome packaging!! What a lovely surprise.

    I've also heard of The Radleys. I must check it out again to jog the memory of what this one is about.

    Happy Reading!!!

  2. Can't wait to get and read "Texas Gothic". I loved "Splendor Falls" by Rosemary-Clement Moore and want to read more by her.

    Happy Reading!

  3. Great books, enjoy them all. ;) That first book Texas Gothic looks really good.

  4. all these things i've done sounds really fabulous! chocolate... why not right? i can't wait to read your thoughts about this book! happy reading!

  7. I really enjoyed Splendor Falls so I am going to check into Texas Gothic.

  8. I love Gabrielle Zevin's YA novels so I really want to get my hands on All These Things I've Done. Was the bizarre book Margarettown, because I found that incredibly strange too?

  13. The package that All These Things I've Done is so pretty and fun! Hope you're enjoying your books :)

    I am so freaking excited for Wildefire. I wish I had an actual print copy of it since I can't put on my kindle. I have to read it on my computer screen. It's worth it, though!
