In My Mailbox (61) / Stacking the Shelves (3)

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. You have FOUR DAYS left.

This is going up a little late in the day because I'M TIRED. It's been my first week of work following an awesome ten day vacation where I actually slept at night instead of took care of patients. I'm back on nights now and goodness gracious, it's an adjustment. But I've only got one more night of work before a nice little four day weekend. The perks of nursing, I guess.

This week I was good and didn't buy anything, but YAY for NetGalley books. And free eBooks. I like free crap.

For Review
Uses for Boys by Erica Lorraine Scheidt
Read it. Unsettled by it. Enjoyed it.

Free Kindle eBook
Dark House by Karina Halle
I've heard awesome things about this series and HEY. It was free for Kindle. Jump on that.

Oh hey, you didn't miss a post this week, did you?

Monday, October 15: Carla reviewed Through to You and showed some love to male points-of-view, but wasn't totally enchanted by this kind-of-but-not-really ghost love story.
Tuesday, October 16: Jen kicked off a new First World Problems-esque feature tailored specifically to book bloggers. Read about Book Blogger Woes!
Wednesday, October 17: Jen is waiting on Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook. YOU GUYS, a boy and a girl need saving from the general complexities of life and have only each other. ONLY EACH OTHER.
Thursday, October 18: Carla reviews a delicious Aussie title, Night Beach by Kirsty Eagar. And might I add, she reviews the ever-loving shiz out of it. 
Friday, October 19: Jen reviews Fathomless by Jackson Pearce. No need to read the first two titles in the Fairytale Retellings series. This dark and twisty mermaid (no fins, though) story is all you need.


  1. I love Netgalley since I feel less bad if I didn't like a particular book. It also makes requesting ARCs a lot easier! Though I have to admit, reading eARCs is sometimes a pain since the formatting is weird.

  2. I like Kindle and all the freebies you can get from them every week. Great haul.


  3. YAY for Darkhouse!!! I hope you like it! Did you get Uses for Boys on NetGalley? I'm not seeing it there ...

    LOVE freebie ebooks. I'm a wee bit addicted to them lately.

    Anyway, enjoy your reads!!! :)

  4. Hmm Darkhouse sounds quite unique and really GOOD! I'm going to hop over to amazon to see if its still free - your link didn't work?

  5. Dark House sounded so good I went over the Amazon and got it. I love FREE! Here is my post:

  6. Ooh I've been seeing Uses for Boys everywhere this week!! Looks good!

    And Dark House sounds interesting too... the link isn't working tho :(

    Happy reading!

  11. That's definitely a perk of nursing (the breaks you get in between). Never heard of the two books you mentioned, but they look good! Enjoy. :D
