In My Mailbox (11)

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.

It's been FOREVER since my last IMM post! Sorry, sorry. It's not because of a lack of books (although there have been less) but just because, well, I'm lazy and my camera is still missing its USB cord. Anyways, these are just the books from this week. Enjoy!

Embrace by Jessica Shrivington
Thanks to Raincoast Books for this one! It sounds fantastic. This ARC doesn't have the pretty final cover that's been appearing all over the blogosphere this week but oh well :) Guess I'll have to wait to see the cover in stores!

Tempest by Julie Cross
Again, thanks to Raincoast Books. I LOVE that cover, and the whole time travel thing is fascinating to me. Hoping this one will surpass my very high expectations!

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
Thomas Allen & Son was so good to me this week! 3 books from them and I wasn't expecting any of them :) Thanks so much! This book sounds... crazy. Totally action-packed, but surprisingly less than 200 pages. Should be fun!

In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton
I haven't read the book before this one in the series (Tyger Tyger) but I put it on hold at my library. Hopefully I'll be able to get to both of these soon! I mean... goblins? How can I resist that?

The White Assassin by Hilary Wagner
I'd actually never heard of this series but it sounds great! What really sold me on it is the blurb from Rick Riordan.... I'll have to see if I can get ahold of the first book since my library doesn't carry it.

Thanks so much to Raincoast Books and Thomas Allen! Hope you guys had a great book week too :) Happy reading!


  1. Tempest and Au Revoir look great!! Happy Reading!

  2. Tempest looks really good!! Can't wait to read what you think of it! Awesome IMM!

  3. Great mailbox! Thumbs up to Embrace and Tempest! I've been hearing great things! I've never heard of White Assassin or Nightshade. Sounds like it could be popular with my customers who are fans of the Warriors series.

  12. Awesome books! Out of all of these I think I'd most want to read Tempest.

  13. I have Enticed and Emblaze (obviously with the aussie covers) but STILL need to get my hands on Embrace! I read some from a library copy ages ago, but never got around to finishing it. Must catch up soon since it's gaining lots of buzz with the US release!

    Also super excited to read Tempest (time travel!!) and Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. Can't wait to see what you think! ENJOY :D

  19. The copy of Embrace that you got was a super, special early advance of the book before the big cover reveal happened last week. The book is so good. Hope you love it. I also really enjoyed Tempest. :)

  20. I can't believe I'm Australia and haven't read EMBRACE yet! Tempest sounds amazing (time-travelling is sooo cool <3) Awesome mailbox!
