In My Mailbox (27): Love & Zombies

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives book bloggers the chance to share what they’ve bought/borrowed/received!

Happy Easter weekend, everyone! Do you have Easter plans this weekend? I am not really into the whole Easter thing so I may take myself out to a movie tomorrow. It sucks that so many places are closed on Easter. I do want to get some Easter candy before it's all gone, though.:) Good book week for me. Still trying not to buy too many and finish my NetGalley titles. I also have some book events coming up this month so I want to save my money for them. The library is great, as usual, for finding new books. 


Where Things Come Back by Corey Whaley - I have heard great things about this one and Corey is actually coming for a library visit in my town with Maggie Stiefvater in a few weeks.

Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs - Don't know much about this one but I liked the premise and cool cover.

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - I've been trying to get this one for ages from the library. So happy it finally came in.

Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan - I can never get enough cookbooks. :)

For Review 

Little Brown tweeted last week about having extra ARCS of  Belles, Purity, The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict and Drowned Cities.  I sent them a quick email in the hopes of getting in before they ram out and these came about a week later. Awesome, right? I am most looking forward to Purity and Drowned Cities.

Ashen Winter (Ashfall #2) by Mike Mullin - I just finished Ashfall and was excited to see the sequel on NetGalley.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard - Historical fiction with zombies! I am so down with this.

Velveteen by Daniel Marks - One of my favorite books as a kid was The Velveteen Rabbit, which is why this book caught my eye. Story good though as I always like a good revenge story.


Lover Reborn!!!! by JR Ward - *Long story alert* I was on the library waitlist for this but it was taking FOREVER to get a copy even though I was super high on the list. Meanwhile I am dying every day watching people read it on Goodreads and twitter. Finally my friend (who was also waiting for her library hold) said enough was enough and she decided to buy Kindle copies for me and my other friend. Then I bought her a copy. So now we all have copies. :) I stayed up until 5:30am on Thursday reading it and finished it Friday afternoon. Totally worth the $14.99. (note - i only didn't want to buy it in hardback because the rest of my series in in pb. I will buy it later this year when it comes out in pb.)

So that's my haul for this week. Leave a comment and link me your IMMs and I'll stop by. Have a good weekend and don't eat too many Cadbury eggs!

  5. Oh wow, I am a huge fan of the Mysterious Benedict Society series, I've read all three books, I didn't know about this one! Did this just come out? Is it a prequel or something, a novel, not a quiz-book of sorts, similar to the one they also had just recently released? So sorry for all the questions, but I got excited seeing this particular book in your mailbox. Great of you to have it. Sooo envious.

    Here's mine over at GatheringBooks:

  6. Yay! I got Statistical Prob too! Can't wait to read it!
