In My Mailbox {74}

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

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Recommendation after recommendation of this finally wore me down, had to grab myself a copy!

Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann (my review)
Finally got myself my own copy of this, I read it already on an ARC tour. SO good!

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Finally found this in the original hardcover edition! GUYS, this book is one of my favorites. It's amazing. If you haven't done so, read it.

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
So, I recently passed up a review pitch for this one (like an idiot!) because my tbr pile was and is just insanely large. But after hearing so many amazing things, I couldn't pass it up at Half Price Books today. So I bought it :)

The Revenant by Sonia Gensler
The wonderfully sweet Shannon @ Stalking the Bookshelves gifted me this awesome signed, personalized copy! So excited---this one sounds so creepy and amazing!! Thanks so much, again, Shannon!! Love the pretty bookmark, too!

New On My Nook...

From Netgalley:
The Sleepwalkers by J. Gabriel Gates
This one sounds beyond creepy. Like I-might-have-nightmares-creepy. Sleepwalking in general creeps me out, but the synopsis along gives me goosebumps! So...excited to read this!

Beautifully Broken by Sherry Soule
Witches, spooky manors, and a ghost with a vengeful agenda? Sounds amazing and yet another spooky one for this weeks IMM!

So, that's what I got this week! What was in your mailbox? :D


  1. Nice haul! I have been meaning to read Beuty Queens for a while. I may have to look up Sleepwalkers. I love a book that gets the goosebumps going so this sounds right up my alley.

  9. Great books this week! Beauty Queen is on my TBR list and I enjoyed 13 Little Blue Envelopes. It made me want to plan a trip to Europe immediately. I am going to read the sequel soon as well. Enjoy your books!

  10. 13 Little Blue Envelopes seems great! I long to read it. I have heard many great things about Never Let Me Go. Enjoy! :D

  11. I liked 13 Little Blue Envelopes and I am thinking about reading Beauty Queen. I hope you enjoy your books!

  12. I hope you enjoy 13 Little Blue Envelopes, I thought it was very cute...the sequel is even better!

  13. You got alot of great books this week :)
    I loved Remains of the Day, but have never read any other of Ishiguro's work...

  14. Yay for BEAUTY QUEENS! I need to read this one after seeing so many amazing reviews!

  15. I've got 13 Little Blue Envelopes waiting for my on my Kindle, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    A signed, personalised copy of a book is an amazing thing! *Jealous* hehe :)

  16. Awesome IMM :D I also want to read 13Little BLue Envelopes :D

    Happy reading! I hope you enjoy all your books ;)

    Here is my IMM

  17. Beauty Queens, The Revenant, and Never Let Me Go are all on my wishlist...13 Little Blue Envelopes was one of my favorite books in ninth grade. :)

  18. I got to meet Sonia a few weeks ago and pick up a signed copy of the Revenant! It's so good. I hope you enjoy it, along with the rest of your books :)

  19. Can I say that I love your bookshelf? I'm drawn to it like a moth to light.

    And, I absolutely adored Cryer's Cross though I didn't expect to. I think you'll be bowled away by Jacian. He's definitely swoon-worthy.

  20. I'm with Ruby, I want your bookshelves. All my books are currently stacked on the floor, I need nice pretty shelves to display them like you have! I've heard good things about Beauty Queens, I'm really looking forward to that one:)

  21. Hands down your IMM always takes my breath away... now question how do you place them in your bookshelf???

  22. Cryer's Cross looks brilliant :) I really want to read that!

    Happy reading!

    Amy @ Turn the Page

  23. I love the picture of your bookcase! It looks so neat and organized... not woefully overstuffed and sloppy, like mine.

  24. Haha..thanks, ladies, for the bookshelf comments. They are not as neat as they appear to be...the other shelves do have some stuck in sideways and there are definitely overstuffed spots. My hubby made me the wall of bookshelves for last mother's day. Maybe I will do a bookshelf tour sometime soon. :)

  25. Beauty Queens! I want that book so freaking bad! Lol! Good week for you =)

  26. I still haven't read Cryer's Cross but it sounds really good, I have to pick up a copy. And I've heard a lot of good things about Beauty Queens, hope you enjoy it! Happy reading :).

  27. Sleepwalkers looks really awesome. I'm waiting on getting Beauty Queens on audiobook through the public library, but don't know how much longer I'm willing to hold out. Enjoy!

  28. I still haven't read Beauty Queens but it sounds really awesome. Hope you'll get a chance to enjoy all of your books.

  29. Oh, Beauty Queens! I want to read that one. I've never reead any of Libba's books, so I want to read that one.

    I have 13 Little Blue Envelopes on my kindle, but I haven't read it yet. I need to!

  30. A great haul! Awesome stuff... I can't wait to read Cryers cross :)
