In My Mailbox (57)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme run by Kristi at The Story Siren which explores the books that have been delivered to our mailbox or doorstep or directly into our hot little hands.

Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles

I can officially say that I am overwhelmed by the number of books that came in this week. At least only 2 are for review and one I requested. I am part of the Southern Book Bloggers ARC tour for The Disenchantments. I have never participated in an ARC tour and am thrilled this is the first book that I received for review in a tour. The Disenchantments has been on my wish list for a while and I am happy to havehte chance to review it.
I picked up a copy of Without Tess from the library. I read this book a few months ago from NetGalley but didn't have a chance to review it before the e-galley expired. My intention is to go back and write the review, finally. 

This was also a Week of Win!! I've won a few giveaways recently and the books are starting to arrive. I won Cinder (and 3 other books) from the Apocalypsies giveaway at Presenting Lenore. It was such an amazing prize that I still can't believe I won it. I don't know if you can tell, but my ARC of Cinder is all jacked up. I think my postal carrier was having a battle with my mailbox and tried to shove the book in sideways. The cover and half of the pages are bent but thankfully none of the pages are ripped. I plan to get a finished copy of this, so I'm not too heart broken (well maybe a little bit). 

And I went a little crazy with the e-book purchases. This is something that I need to cut out - IMMEDIATELY!! Does anyone else have this problem?

Thank you to Shannon from Stalking the Bookshelves and Lori from Pure Imagination, Derek, Lenore, Danielle and Scholastic, and my local library for making this another amazing week in books!


  1. Ugh. I hate when things arrive damaged like that! Cinder is a great book though so don't feel too bad about spending money to get a finished, none damaged, copy! :)

    My IMM:

  2. Awww it's such a shame that Cinder arrived a little worse for wear! But as long as it's still readable there is a positive side :-)

    I've been stalking The Eleventh Plague for a while, maybe now that I've fallen off the book-buying-ban wagon I don't have an excuse any more.....

    I also need to kick the e-book habit, but it's so easy to just buy them!

  3. Amazing indeed! I LOVED Cinder, and Scary School was really cute. Enjoy your books!

  4. Yea, my Kindle blew up with books. It's hard to pass up those free or cheep ebooks.

  5. Awkward looks really good! I know what you mean about being overwhelmed by all the books, but just remember that book blogging is supposed to be fun and read the books you want to read first :)

  6. Great Mailbox! Cinder was amazing! Hope you enjoy your new books!
    Happy Reading!

  8. AWWW. sorry to hear about your arc and the postman. I've had that problem before too. Cinder looks great, as do the others.Congrats on your winnings!

  9. Great set! I can't wait to read Cinder. Sad that it's damaged though.
