In My Mailbox (17)

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren to share books we got in the mail or the library or the bookstore, etc. that week!

This mailbox consists of two weeks worth of books, so it's a little bit bigger than usual.

Yes, one of them is Insurgent. I thought about not putting it up here because I know how many people want it and I don't want it to seem like I'm bragging. But, the point of IMM is to show readers what we got and I will be reviewing it (haven't read it yet), so it wouldn't be much of a secret anyway.

P.S. I took it from work before anyone else saw it...

Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth (this did not come in one of those fancy boxes...boo)
Slide by Jill Hathaway

My store will be hosting Penguin's YA or Bust tour and since I'm planning it, they kindly sent the authors' newest books! SO EXCITED for this event!! If you're in the Los Angeles area stop by Children's Book World April 23rd at 6:30pm! The moderator of the panel will be Marie Lu! So lucky I got her!! Thank you, Penguin publicist. /shameless promotion
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman

They sent us a box with the Kid's Indie Next List and SURPRISE there were books! We already had a galley of the The Peculiars so I took it for mine and...there was a copy of The Immortal Rules!! I'm the only one in the store who would have any interest in reading it, so I stoled it. It is mine. 
The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

I want to thank the Macmillan store rep for putting up with all of my book requests and getting them out to me quicker than I expect them.
This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (e-book) (I've already read this and loved it)
Auracle by Gina Rosati (e-book)
Torn by Amanda Hocking (e-book)
My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody (e-book)

What did you get this week?


  1. you have so many good books in the last couple of weeks. i admit that i am totally jealous of all the insurgent copies popping up in blogland. jealous in a good way.

    i don't know if i can make the event in april (work) but i'll try. i've been dying to read the disenchantments and i love stephanie perkins.

    yay for immortal rules! i am so intrigued by the cover. i hope you have fun with all of your goodies. looks like they'll be keeping you busy. :)

  2. LOL I love that you took Insurgent from work before anyone saw! So many other great books too! I loved Where She Went and Lola and the Boy Next Door. And I cannot wait to read The Immortal Rules! Enjoy! :)

  3. I really want to read The Peculiars, it looks really awesome. :)

  4. My review of The Peculiars just posted. I'm dying to read Immortal Rules. Slide is AMAZINGGGG!!! I LOVE IT! I've been wanting to read Torn, and I'm waiting on my copy of This Is Not A Test. I hope you love all of these books. I can't wait to see your reviews for them!

  5. OMG!!!!! Insurgent, Slide, The Immortal Rules - I'm crying tears of envy right now! Love, love, love your haul! Looks like you've got loads of happy reading ahead of you!

    Enjoy your swag, please visit my IMM

  6. Great IMM! I love the sound of The Disenchantments, hoping to read it soon :)
    And of course Insurgent! I don't think it's bragging by putting it in your IMM. I'm super excited to see what happens next and by seeing the arcs going out I know I won't have to wait too long and I can't wait to see what other people think about it :)

    New Follower :)

  7. Hi Angie! It is totally OK to brag about getting books you're excited about girl! I'm excited for to have gotten Insurgent, UGH I wish they'd send me one too lol :) Hope you enjoy all the awesome books you got in!

    You can check out my IMM video and post for this week at the link below :) Happy Reading!!

  8. Oh my gosh! They're all so amazing! Are you giving away any? Like Insurgent or The Immortal Rules?

  9. You don't seem like you're bragging. At all.

    I agree with Books Worth Remembering -- when someone gets a book I'm drying for and it's six months before the release date I might feel a tiny twinge of jealousy. Insurgent is out in only a few weeks. I'll live :)

    Enjoy them!

  10. Between blog world and Twitter, I feel like I'm the only person without an advanced copy of Immortal Rules! Can't wait to read your review! Check out my IMM here: Ramblings of a Reader: IMM
