In My Mailbox #22

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by the wonderful The Story Siren where we get to drool with one another over the awesome books that came in the post this week.


Snagged Myths & Legends and The Iron Daughter (FINALLY, I hear you say!) from the library. I was thinking about buying Myths and Legends, so I wanted to see if it was what I was after first. Very nice surprise from Penguin with VA Guide and Cinder!! Cinder sounds amazing. As does Arcadia Awakens (I love the US cover!). I'm Not Her was a contest win from BBAW. So excited to dive into these all!

And finally: I LOVE YOU, JENA!!! Thank you so, so much for the copy of Half-Blood!! I've been ridiculously excited to read this for ages, because everyone has been gushing about it like crazy <3

What's in your mailbox this week?

  5. -in pain from 335 whip lashes-

    SO what's this Myths and Legends book for? *raises eyebrows* *waits for response*
    DIfferent cover for Cinder. Looks like they're trying to make it more fairytale-like but I'm not impressed...

    -whips you one in return-

  6. So jealous that you're Australian, you get awesome Australian books, British books and amazing US books! I have Cinder as an eGalley but still, I want the print copy! Waaah :( I have Half Blood and Arcadia Awakens on my TBR shelf and just finished the Iron Fey series. iron Daughter isn't the best so I'd advise you to stick it out!

  7. Shirley - Haha I'm going to try squeeze TID in as soon as I can!! I snuck in the first chapter or two at the library and was hooked :)

    Braiden - Your whip lashing sounds totally kinky from an outsiders perspective :P But everyone needs to know that YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY SERIES YET. So VA fans, have it at!

    Myths and Legends is for helping with inspiration on a story idea I've been working on for ages, but I am genuinely interested in reading about different myths from all around the world. And I actually like this Cinder cover!

    Jade - LOL this is why you must move to Australia! Obviously it's the most awesome place in the world to live :) I will definitely stick with Iron Fey, mainly because I can't stand everyone gushing about it all the time while I remain completely ignorant haha.

  8. Yay for the Iron Daughter. Can't wait to see what you think of this series.

    I am curious about Cinder. I am going to wait to add it as a book I want to read after I've read some reviews from people whose opinion on books I trust (like YOU). It sounds good, but something is holding me back.

    Enjoy the rest of your awesome reads!

  15. I wanna know about Myths and Legends, that stuff is always interesting!
    All I see is major gushing for Half Blood so yeah *insert jealous face*. I loove the cover for Arcadia Awakens! The image and title make me think of ancient evil or something.
