In My Mailbox {73}

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

We'll just call this one IMM {73} -OR- "How to lose weight using the Happy Dance Workout".
I had an awesome book week! Here's what I got:

For Review:
Texas Gothis by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Reading this one now,---so far, so good! Duplicate copy, so look for the arc in a giveaway soon!

Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris
Wasn't so sure about this one (not a big fan of zombie books), but when I got it in my hands, read the back, and the first couple pages, I was sold! Can't wait to read it now!

Wildcat Fireflies by Amber Kizer
This is the second to Meridian, which I loved. Plus I just like the word "Fenestra". :D

Starstruck by Cyn Balog
Love Cyn Balog! I've heard mixed stuff about this one, but I don't care---still excited to read this!

(for review...cont.)
Amen, L.A. by Cherie Bennett & Jeff Gottesfeld
I've heard this compared to series like the Gossip Girl, and that's not really my thing, so we'll have to see what I make of this one!

Sass & Serendipity by Jennifer Ziegler
Love this cover and also really excited to read a retelling of Sense and Sensability!

The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
A historical that takes place in the court of Queen Elizabeth I...sounds like a good one!

The Summer I learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt
I'd never heard of this one before it showed up! Looks like a good story---lots of quirk to it!

(for review..cont.)
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon (!!)
I cannot even play it cool or try to pretend I'm not freaking out excited to receive this one!!

Won from Genna @ Reading, Writing, and the World of Words
Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver
Eeep!! Love Lauren Oliver!! And the illustrations in this are so cool! Hubby and I are both excited to read this one! (He reads more MG than I do!)

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Hearing such amazing things about this one, plus that cover is so amazing!

Graveminder by Melissa Marr
This one looks so eerie!! Definitely excited to have won a copy!!

Mara Dyer was signed! ♥

So that was my book week! Thanks so much to Genna, HarperTeen, & Random House for all these wonderful books!
