In My Mailbox 16 - Crazy Hoarder Edition

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren.

Ok, so as the title suggests, this might totally seem like a blog post version of the show Hoarders, BUT it's not, not really. In fact, this is going to be about a month’s worth of books since all my packages are shipped home instead of to my dorm because my RAs are incompetent. But that’s another story. ANYWAY...


God Loves Ugly by Christa Black - SO excited for this one! I love Christa.

Inside Out Maria V. Snyder - This series looks freakin' amazing!
Outside In by Maria V. Snyder - Ditto^

Desires of the Dead by Kimberley Derting - Loved TBF, hope this one's just as great.

Angelfire by Courtney Alison Moulton - I hear Will is hot this debut rocks! Excited!

Fire by Kristin Cashore - Really looking forward to this one, though I've yet to read Graceling. I fail, I know but I'm workin' on it.

The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell - Super pretty cover! And I'm sure it's got the story to match.

Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman - Again, cover love. Sounds hilarious too.

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes - Not gonna lie, I felt this book up. Very velvetty. (Is that a word??) Story also sounds great.

A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford - I've been looking forward to this one for a while.

Clarity by Kim Harrington - Love this white cover AND I love that it's glossy. Glossy is underrated. We need more glossy covers.

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins - Love this book oh, so much. And Archer. Team Archer, FTW!

Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr - Complete series, oh yeahhh. (Can you tell I don't get to say that very often, so I have as much fun as I can when I do? :P)

Haven by Kristi Cook - I love Kristi and I've been looking forward to her book for a long while. Hopefully I'll get to it soon.

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink - Been wanting this book FOREVER and finally got it. Love this cover too.

Not pictured:
Afterlife by Claudia Gray - Did not love this, but had to have my series completed. Overall, series was good, but this was most definitely not the best book. :(

And there might be a few others I missed... Sorry! I lost track while opening all the packages. It kind of felt like Christmas and well, you just have to know how I am on Christmas morning to fully understand that madness.

AND THIS PEOPLE, IS WHY I LOVE HARPERTEEN. Harperteen: you guys rock, I love you x4798644864786.

For review:
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Hereafter by Tara Hudson
Die for Me by Amy Plum

aka The Dark Days debut author package
OR as I like to call it,
Package Full Of Awesome

I will be attending The Dark Days Tour this summer, which means I will be meeting every one of these authors. Lemme tell you, excited doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about this. If any of you are interested in the tour (which you should be because as we've already established, it's going to be AWESOME), you can head over to the Dark Days facebook page and click under events to see if they're coming near you.

I'll be at the Austin stop if anyone's interested. And if you can't make it, I'll definitely be blogging about it, so stay tuned for that and maybe a giveaway...? ;)

So. That's what I've received when I was away and I'm beyond ready to read these! Hope you all had a great book week/month as well. Leave a comment and I'll check out your IMM asap!


  1. OMG how awesome is your mailbox this week! I'm coming to your house to read them all! LOL

  2. omg...that is a LOTTTTTTT of awesome books! harperteen's is amazing, and you're incredibly lucky! XD

  3. OMG! Look at all that Debut Novels! I am jealous! And all that for reviews too. Hereafter and all. -.- I'm jealous publishers won't send stuff for review international. Oh well! Amazing IMM! :D

  4. Great books! So many of those are on my wish list. Can't wait to see what you think of them.
    Happy Reading :)

  5. Great book haul this week. I'm super jealous of all the great books. :D I totally want a copy of Haven and A Touch Mortal. :D

    -Happy Reading from Akasha Hale

  6. Great books! you've got a lot that are on my TBR list... jealousy much? And it sucks that you can't get your books sent to school! I feel like the people in my dorm's mailroom know me now because I'm always in there picking up packages Lol

  7. Great books this month!! I got Outside In this week too so I plan to read both books soon as I love Maria V. Snyder.
    I loved Babe in Boyland! So cute and funny.
    Can't wait to read Haven, Clarity and Angelfire - I just have to find the time.
    Happy reading.

  8. WOW so many books this week! I really hope you like Prophecy of the Sisters - it's one of my favourite series :D! I'm almost done with Falling Under ;)!

  9. Wow that is an intense haul!!! Haha I agree that Babe in Boyland sounds hilarious. Me and my friend were looking at it the other day at the bookstore talking about how it just seems so implausible that a girl could actually dress up as a guy and get away with it. Definitely curious to read that one! XD

  10. I want to pet your books. Is that weird?

  11. Lindsi: Totally not! I did a freaky happy dance when I got the package & petted them lots, myself. I'm the weird one. haha

  17. I wish I lived in the USA and got some HarperTeen goodies as well. I got Starcrossed and Hereafter as eBooks, but that's just not the same as an old-fashioned, lovely paperback book. I love how you bought hardcovers of all those awesome books like Angelfire, The Vespertine, etc. I got Fire too last week and I really loved reading it! I hope you'll enjoy it as well. Happy reading!
