In My Mailbox (6)



In My Mailbox is a meme that I picked up from The Story Siren's blog. It's where we share the new books that we've gotten for that week with our readers. These books could be from the library, the store, or from the writers/publishers for review. Whatever the reason, I will share my new books every Sunday!

Won from giveaways
 

I received these awesome books from some very generous blogs! I won a signed copy of Embraced by Blood from Lisa's World of Books along with a bookmark, postcard, and character trading cards. I won a signed copy of Planet X: The Annunaki Wars from the author at Planet X: The Annunaki Wars. I won Queen By Right from Polishing Mud Balls. I won The Beholder from Satin's Bookish Corner. And last, but not least, I won The Billionaire's Unexpected Heir from The Blogging Book. I want to give a big thanks to them for the awesome giveaways! 

From Half Price Books (I have an addiction!!) 

Well, I went to Half Price Books. Again. I can't help it! I only ended up spending $3 on these four books! How could I resist such good sales on books? It helps feed my book addiction by without spending so much money! That's okay, right? 

From Library

I got these great books from the library earlier this week, but I haven't gotten to read any of them yet! I have so many books I have to review that's it's so hard to squeeze in time to read library books. I hope I can get to them soon though because these books sound so good! 

From Publisher/Author

I know I got a lot of books from publishers this week, but they aren't all actually from this week! Since I was gone a week, my mail was stopped, so a lot of these books came on Monday, but they were from last week. Anyways, I am so excited to read these and some of them were even signed!! Needless to say, I was very excited when I got them. And for some of these books, there will be ebook giveaways in the near future on my blog! So make sure to stop by later! And there's a giveaway right now for the hardcopy of the three historical romances I got and you can enter that right here!


From Library Sale 

The cover of this books looks like something that Simone Elkeles would write, so I picked it up! The cover said that it was actually an advanced copy and that it doesn't even come out until September. I don't know how it got on the library sale shelf, but I grabbed it so I could read and review this before it even came out. It has very good reviews online, so I can't wait to read this one! And yes, I only bought ONE book from the library this week. You all should be proud :)

From Barnes and Noble 

Jennifer Echols is one of my favorite authors, so when her new book came out on Monday, I went straight to Barnes and Noble and bought it. I then read most of it that night and finished it all up by Tuesday. I really loved the story, but since I read it so fast, I'm stuck where I was before: waiting yet again for another one of her books. But I'm sure it will be well worth the wait again! I will post my review here soon of Love Story! 

From Library Thing

I just recently joined Librarything so I was super surprised to see that I won the ARC of Sara Shepard's new book. I love the Pretty Little Liars series (I read a couple of the books, but I watch the show every week!!) so hopefully this book is as good as her other series! 


Borrowed From a Friend

I've heard some very good things about this series and my very best friend Alexa lent me this book the other day to read. I hope it's as good as everyone says it is! I've been meaning to read it for a while, I just haven't had the time. Let's hope I can get to reading it soon! 


That's it! What all was in your guys's mailboxes this week? Please share!
