In My Mailbox (1)

Hello again!  I got a lot of books recently and I thought I would share them with you so you can see what books I will review soon, and what books are on my To-Read list so you can maybe get some good ideas on the books you want to read next!  In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren, and this is basically what it is (from The Story Siren’s website; more info here):

What is In My Mailbox?

In My Mailbox was started in November of 2008. It was inspired by one of my fellow book bloggers and friends, Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. That and several other elements. What it all came down to was this: I get books to read and then ultimate share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved!

In My Mailbox has evolved since its start. It started out with a few cover images and a synopsis…. then to actual pictures of the books and finally to vlogs!

Initially In My Mailbox was something I did myself, but ultimately I thought it would be even better if other bloggers shared in the idea… thus the craziness of IMM was born! In My Mailbox is a great way for bloggers to socialize and network their blogs, it’s also a great way for bloggers to share upcoming releases!

So, here are the books!  A list is at the bottom of these two photos.

  1. “Bad Unicorn” is in my “To Be Read” pile, too! I can’t wait. It looks completely ridiculous (in a good way). I’ll be anxious to see how our reactions compare!

  2. Hi!

    So, I was reading your list, and I noticed you had an advanced reader copy of Keepers of the Lost Cities: Exile, and I was curious about how you can acquire the advanced reader copy. I am interested in reviewing & critiquing books, and would like to be able to review books BEFORE they come out (Plus, I LOVED Keepers of the Lost Cities!). So, if you wouldn’t mind, I would be interested in knowing just how can receive an advanced reader copy. Thanks!
