In My Mailbox #27

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.


Only two books this week, but I'm so happy for that since I have so many to get through already!

How gorgeous are these covers? I adore. I'm really excited about reading them both. I never tire of angel stories and Switched definitely offers me something new.... trolls! Can't say I've encountered too many of those (in reality or fiction :P). So I'm insanely intrigued to see Amanda's take on them.

What yummy books are in your mailbox this week?

  1. Internet trolls? I’ve got the Trylle trilogy on my Sony Touch so might read Switched while I’m away. So that I can get a review in for Charlotte ;) Two-book-deal!

  2. Heard mixed opinions of Switched, but it sounds like a pretty good read. Love the cover! I've read A Beautiful Dark which was an alright book. Hope you enjoy them both!

  3. I just got Switched too! I just love how red the cover is. Can't wait to read it. Still an awesome mailbox, Brodie ;)

  4. Oooooh! I really want to read Lies Beneath! The synopsis sounds cooooooooool! (sorry, the extra 'O's were all tapped out to the irristible beat of a favourite song XD)

    A Beautiful Dark! Pretty! The cover is LOVELY! And Switched! The cover is pretty freaking gorgeous. Whenever I think of trolls now I think of this Neil Gaiman short story in M is for Magic and shudder ('and he swallowed up my life,' or something similar). Creeeeeepy. But that would be why I love Neil Gaiman.

    Uuuh, sorry, I'm tried. Rambling. And I'm aware of it but I just can't stop myself... look at this sentence that Im' typing right now, for instance...

    ANYWAY! AWESOME MAILBOX! Yay!

  6. A Beautiful Dark is good. I think you'll enjoy Asher. :)

    I haven't heard much about Switched, so I am looking forward to your review.

    I want to read Lies Beneath! It sounds amazing!

  11. GORGEOUS COVERS <3 I haven't read either *sigh* but apparently there's a "love square" in ABD :S I've read mixed reviews about it, but it still sounds like an interesting read! AHHH THAT RED COVER IS SO FREAKING PRETTY!! LOL Trolls? Now, THAT'S exciting! Enjoy them both, Brodie!

  12. I liked A Beautiful Dark! I'm curious to see whether you'll prefer Asher or Devin :P

    Switched looks SO interesting. I have no idea how I would feel about trolls... the only ones I can remember reading about are those in Wings (Aprilynne Pike) and the one in HP (where Harry, Ron and Hermione became friends YAYAYAYAYYYY). Looking forward to your thoughts on that! :)

  15. It's nice when you can take it easy on the TBR shelf every once in awhile, right? :) I've heard great things about A Beautiful Dark and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for sharing and happy reading!

  17. A Beautiful Dark was a wonderfully surprising read for me. I really enjoyed it. I'm sure you will to.

    ~Happy Reading!

  18. Haha, I must say that the trolls are... intriguing. :P Plus, the cover is gorgeous and Amanda Hocking really made a name for herself. I'll look forward to your thoughts on the book when you get to it.

  19. Two books seem perfectly reasonable. I should try keeping my book acquisitions to a minimum as well - book buying can get pretty addicting. I also have a copy of Switched for review. I should really get around to reading and reviewing it. I have a different book cover though. :)

    Here's my IMM for the week:

  21. I've definitely seen A Beautiful Dark and I always giggle because it looks pretty funny..I know she's about to take flight, but still it makes me laugh.

  22. I swear I'm the only one who thinks A Beautiful Dark cover is a bit creepy haha, maybe it'll grow on me once I get it!

    Happy Reading,

  28. So excited for you! You know how I feel about A Beautiful Dark already, but SWITCHED LOOKS SO AWESOME. Seriously, review that soon so I'll know if it's something to overlook or something to tuck into the shelves in my room.

    Heart ya for that giveaway, among other reasons :P

    Have an amazing reading week!

  33. I loved A Beautiful Dark! I haven't read any of Amanda's books yet, so I'm looking forward to Switched. I know it was available as an ebook for a while, but I'm glad St. Martin's picked it up, because I much prefer physical books. Hope you enjoy both! Here's my IMM!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Switched has trolls in it? O_o Huh, with it being re-released and getting all sorts of attention I'm really tempted to read the ebook I got ages ago haha. You should read her book Hollowland as well, so awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. They are most definitely gorgeous. o: And two books I am super intrigued by (I mean trolls?) and desperately want to get my hands on. I might be just a little jealous. ;) Lol. I hope they're both awesome!

    My IMM!

  36. SWITCHED!!! Yo I love that series!! :) I hope you enjoy it!! :)

  37. Ohhhh, you got a Beautiful Dark! I still haven't gotten a finished copy of it yet. I loved that book!
