In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren which gives bloggers a chance to share the books, swag, etc. that they've received each week.

Book title links go to Goodreads profiles.

Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter - So glad to have this one! I loved Heist Society and I'm ready to jump back into Kat's world (and... okay. I'm a little excited to go back to Hale as well). Thanks to Chrystal from Snowdrop Dreams of Books for this one! :)

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen - I won this from Hilde at The Turn of the Page. I've already read it from when I checked it out of the library but I'm hoping to go to one of Sarah's signings when she comes to Toronto next month. Either way, it's nice to have a copy of my own!

Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren - I won this (I know, I win way too many books) from the lovely group of bloggers behind Teens Read and Write. I've started it and am trying to stop while I get through some eARCs that will expire soon but... so good!

Pretty Bad Things by C.J. Skuse - This comes from the library. I haven't heard too much about it but I like the excerpt on the back (it involves donuts).

Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston - Also from my library. I'm so excited to read this one! I love Lesley's work aaaaaand Honey gave it an awesome review. I trust her judgement.

Wondering what that gun charm is about? ARE YOU SCARED? Don't be. I won it during Sarah Rees Brennan week (hosted by YA Bibliophile and The Reading Housewives of Indiana) from Becky at Just a Tilted Lamp. It is awesome and will be given to my friend who is a little obsessed with weapons/wars/armies. Ahem.


That's all for me this week. What did you get in your mailbox? Leave a comment and I'll make sure to stop by and see.

    I can't wait to start reading Uncommon Criminals. Heist Society was AMAZING!


  4. I have heard a lot about Once Every Never. Looks like you had an awesome week.

  5. Great Books! I'm reading Heist Society now and it reminds me a lot of the movie The Italian Job. I loved the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter as well.

    What Happened to Goodbye is also an amazing book! I've been to one of Sarah Dessen's signings when Along for the Ride came out. She's so sweet!

    Here's my IMM post:

  6. I'm so glad it arrvied safely! I know you will totally enjoy it. :)

    New To My Stash

  9. Ooh awesome books this week, Sonia! I got Uncommon Criminals too, and I have Pretty Bad things on my TBR! Once Every Never looks awesome, and so does the Dessen book. Happy reading! :)

  10. Loveeee 'Waterfall'! & yay for Sarah Dessen. =)

  11. Yeah. You totally scared me with that gun charm. Because Sonia + a weapon = A QUAKING WITH FEAR BRODIE. Seriously, charm or not you should NOT be allowed a gun in your possession. I'm glad it's going to your friend :P

    Awesome haul!! I'm totally jealous of Once Every Never, you Canadians are lucky... don't think it's being released here! :( AH! So glad you're enjoying Waterfall! It gets even better in Cascade <3 Happy happy reading!

  12. Great books this week :)

    I love the cover of Uncommon Criminals -- very Audrey Hepburn!

    I have yet to read Sarah Dressen...must do that soon.

    Hope you enjoy all your books :)

  13. Warning - I found Waterfall to be completely addicting and actually downloaded Cascade onto my phone at break so I had something to continue with! I can't wait for Torrent. :)
