In My Mailbox was started as a YA book blog feature by The Story Siren in November 2009. Haul videos are nothing new; fashionistas have been posting them on YouTube since at least 2007.
Lots of exciting books this week.
In the ARC department:
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Waking Storms by Sarah Porter
I bought these:
Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
From the library:
Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick
I loved Ilsa Bick's first book, Ashes. Except for the zombies. Not sure if there are any zombies in Drowning Instinct. Let's hope not....
What's up on the blog in the coming week?
Monday: I'm reading The Disenchantments, which is amazing so far, so I'm doing a post highlighting books about bands.
Tuesday: another exciting installment of Hot off the Presses, in which I feature hot new YA releases of the coming week!
Wednesday: review of Masque of the Red Death By Bethany Griffin
Thursday: review of Unraveling By Elizabeth Norris
Friday I'm participating in TGIF-- and doing another Freebie Friday.
All week long: Divergent Trivia and Insurgent giveaway! Scroll down to the post below this one to see today's question.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week :)

Thanks -- you got some great stuff too!Delete
Your ARCs look interesting - I have Disenchantments, Masque of Red Death, and A Temptation of Angels on my to-read list and definitely will check out the others :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a good haul this week!
Hello, Sarah, my Food Network magazine friend!!Delete
I was so excited about the taco issue. I am obsessed with tacos!
Great books this week! I still have to read DisenchantmentsReplyDelete
It's so good -- move it up the pile!Delete
Great mailbox!! Masque of the Red Death is at the top of my wishlist - it comes out on my birthday!! I Hunt Killers is on my TBR too - it sounds really interesting. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
A LOT of great stuff comes out on your birthday then!!Delete
Oooh ... nice books! The Masque of the Red Death looks really good -- I can't wait to read that one! And I just had The Disenchantments recommended to me ... I love a good road trip book!ReplyDelete
You will love the Disenchantments if you like road trip books!!Delete
Looks like some good books. I just picked up The Immortal City yesterday and already finished it late last night (really this morning). :) I loved it! Very different take on the whole angel thing and I'm interested to see if they do a sequel, not that they have too, but they leave it open enough that they can. I'm reading Above right now.ReplyDelete
What do you think of Above?Delete
ahh, you found Masque out in the wild?? This makes me want to go to the bookstore and look for it! I SO can't wait for Masque!ReplyDelete
I really want to read Drowning Instinct, and I don't think there are zombies in it. It isn't related to the Ashes trilogy, so probably not.
LOL-- yes, it was running wild.Delete
Since I have two copies, it will probably be up for grabs in a giveaway!
Great IMM!! I Hunt Killers looks really good!!! Thank you for visiting my IMM. I filled out a contact me form about freebie friday.ReplyDelete
Yep, I got your email and I emailed you back :)Delete
Ohhhhh Masque of Red Death and Temptation of Angels! I can't wait to read those! I Hunt Killers sounds intriguing.ReplyDelete
I'm worried that I Hunt Killers may be too scary. But I'm going to try it!Delete
I really want to get my hands on Masque of the Red Death! I have only heard great things about it! I had Getting Over Garret Delaney in my TBR pile from the Library and just finished it. Solid 4 stars out of 5 from me. I couldn't put it down.ReplyDelete
It's really different -- I think you'd like it!!!!Delete
Great IMM! I'm looking forward to your review of Unraveling. Just pre-ordered it yesterday :-)ReplyDelete
And I think I may need to add I Hunt Killers to the TBR. It's been very popular on the blogs!
I'm not sure it's for me, but I'm going to try it!!!Delete
I like ur weekly recap :)ReplyDelete
Thanks -- you know me, always trying new stuff on the blog!Delete
although i like it, i do not remember it throughout the week. but it's nice to know :)Delete
The Waking Storms cover looks so gorgeous :) & I can't wait to read The Disenchantments. I hope you enjoy all your books.ReplyDelete
Aly @ My Heart Hearts Books
Thanks -- enjoyed your IMM too!Delete
Ooo, Masque of the Red Death! and A Temptation of Angels! Great books this week! I hope you enjoy your new reads!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
I can't wait to see what you think of I Hunt Killers.ReplyDelete
Okay, I'm going to be brave and try it out!!!Delete
I LOVE the cover to Waking Storms! Don't you? ANd I Hunt Killers is right up my alley! hehe You got some really awesome books this week! Can't wait to see what you think of them! :)ReplyDelete
I'm worried that IHK is too scary. But we'll see...Delete
I have I Hunt Killers and it looks so good. Why isn't there enough time to read everything?????ReplyDelete
Enjoy all your books!
I know -- so many books to read!Delete
My copy of Immortal City came in on Saturday and I'm reading it now. Deftinitely a great book so far. I love how the setting is Los Angeles but at the same time Scott Speer makes the place his own little world. I also got the first two books of The Verona Trilogy, which definitely sounds like a good series, especially since it takes place in Italy(I so want to go there).ReplyDelete
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!!Delete
Zombies are not a favourite with me, so I am hoping there are none in DROWNING INSTINCT too. I love the cover of this. I am judging!!!!ReplyDelete
The cover is really great and really seems to fit the book!Delete
Very nice haul! I Hunt Killers sounds so good and I've heard crazy good stuff about Drowning Instinct! All the others sound great, too! Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I'm about to make some tea and go read IHK right now!Delete
