In My Mailbox (60) / Stacking the Shelves (2)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga

These bookish memes allow us to share with other bloggers the awesome books we got, and of course be jealous of everyone who got super awesome books, too! I got some pretty good ones this week!

And AHEM. We're giving away a preorder of Tahereh Mafi's Unravel Me. To the WHOLE WORLD. Well, to one person in the whole world. ENTER HERE

For Review 
The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver (unsolicited)
I love, love, loved Before I Fall and Delirium! I haven't read any MG by Oliver, but I do have Liesl & Po on my shelf. Now I can add The Spindlers to that list. When I read the summary, I got as far as "talking rats," and knew I WAS SOLD.
- Epic Force by Alexi Raymond (accepted pitch)
A book about wrestling? YOU BET. I'm about halfway through this book and it is hot, hot, hot. And to think, The Rock was the only thing I thought was appealing about wrestling. This very well may change my mind. Be on the lookout, because I'll be giving away a few copies of this e-book for your reading pleasure in the very near future.
 thanks harperteen and alexi!

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
I LOVE YOU, CARLA! She seriously geeked the F out over this book (read her review here!) and was sweet enough to surprise me with my own copy because she is the mothereffing cat's pajamas.

Once Dance with a Duke by Tessa Dare
Both Anna and April read and loved this series. I have books two and three and needed the first in the series. HUZZAH.
- Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Just in time for Halloween. My pants are prepared to be scared.
- Crossed by Ally Condie
STILL haven't read Matched, but Anna loved both of them, so that's good enough for me. I really can't get enough dystopian, guys.

Leave a link to your IMM/StS so we can drop by and admire all your pretties.


  1. TEN! Loved it. IT was creepy and fun. SO GOOD. AND SPINDLERS! I have an ARC I haven't read what is wrong with me. I hope you love it!

  2. Yay for The Spindlers! It's so much fun! And Finnikin is like the BEST BOOK EVER! I hope you loooove it.

  6. I'm really jazzed about my influence over you bwahahahahaha

  7. I just finished Ten, it wasn't too bad. I'll be waiting to hear what you think of The Spindlers...I've been eyeing that one but the fact that it's MG and contains spiders (cringe) has held me back >.>

  8. I loved Liesl and Po and really want to try out The Spindlers! I hope you like it. And TEN! Yaaaay! I really want to read that one -- it looks awesome!

    Enjoy your books!

  9. I hope you really enjoy Finnikin! It was a little slow to star but the series is awesome!

  13. I haven't even heard of Epic Force before, but hearing you say it's good makes me want to go check it out. Thanks for the rec! Happy Reading!

  14. Ten is one I'm aching for. I haven't read the Matched Series yet either. Seems like it's been on my TBR list for forever. And I've heard Finnickin of the Rock was really good.

    Check out my IMM & SP.

  15. Oooh, definitely adding Ten to my TBR pile.. Enjoy all your new books! Happy reading!

  16. Nice! I totally just bought One Dance with a Duke. I LOVE historical romance :)

  20. Fabulous books this week. I loved Ten. It was super creepy! Perfect for a Halloween read. Happy reading!

    Here’s my Stacking The Shelves!

  21. I have been wanting to read something by Tessa Dare for awhile, not. I have been hearing great things about her books. I used to read a lot of historical romance, but have drifted away from it the last few years. I want to get back into that genre, though.

    Have fun with your new books. :)

  22. Great books this week! I enjoyed Crossed, not as much as Matched, but it was definitely good. I have been dying to read Finnikin- I have had it on my shelf forever. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it! Enjoy your books!
