In My Mailbox #36

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!


So I now have the entire Gallagher Girls series.... I just need to actually read them! I have read the first and it was a lot of fun, so I'm really eager to dive into the rest,, I just need to find the time! Out of Sight, Out of Time and Embrace were a (very nice!) surprise parcel from the publisher. They clearly read my mind, since I own Enticed and Emblaze, books 2 and 3 in the Violet Eden Chapters, but not Embrace. And since it's being released in US.... now? soon? I figure it's high time I caught up on them.

I'm reading The Killables at the moment and it's pretty good! The actual idea is kinda the opposite if Delirium. Where Delirium eradicates love by an operation to the brain, The Killables does the same but with evil. I'm a sucker for an intriguing dystopian! Really, really excited to start Of Poseidon (MERMAIDS!), though I won't be reading that until May and Silhouette until June, as per request to post my reviews then. Silehouette isn't my usual read, but it sounds fantastic and came recommended. Plus it's from a breakout debut Aussie author and I heart Aussie writers <3

So in all I had a pretty awesome book week! Excited to dive into all these delicious reads :)

What's in your mailbox this week?

  2. BRODIEEEEEEEEE!!!! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG MEEEE JEALOUSS OF YOUR MAILBOXXXXXX <3333
    OF POSEIDON!!!! EEEEEEE! I have a feeling Of Poseidon & Silhouette (gosh, i can NEVER spell that word!) were in the package that came on Monday, but the stupid post office lady didn't give it to me when I went:/ Can't wait for your reviews on both of them! (WAIT. You don't usually read books like Sihouette, meaning YOU DON'T USUALLY READ BOOKS ABOUT BALLET/DANCE?!?! WHYYYYYYY?!?!?!)
    The Killables sounds sooo awesome! Funny how Delirium & The Killables are published by the same publisher!
    hahaa, BRODIE, YOU'RE AN AUSSIE AND YOU HAVEN'T READ EMBRACE?!! YAYYY! JOIN THE CLUB! I always thought I was THE ONLY Aussie who hasn't yet read it :/ Oohh Out of Sight, Out of Time is apparently the best in the series so far! I was sooo hoping to win the Hachette prize pack so I'll get the entire series, but I WON STORM INSTEAD! heheee so I'm happy :DD
    Anyway..ENJOY BRODIE!<3
    (ohhh and I CAN'T WAIT FOR STORM TO ARRIVE! I SHALL DEVOUR IT AS SOON AS I RECEIVE IT DESPITE MY EXAMS IN A COUPLE OF DAYS! STORM TAKES PRIORITY<3333 Andthen I can officially fight over Gabriel with you! :DD)

    1. Day-uhm. Still isn't LONG ENOUGH. LOL. Don't worry Alice! If you read this, just be aware that this is what I'm capable of writing DURING EXAM PREPARATION PERIOD...which ultimately means that ONCE MY EXAMS ARE OVER, I SHALL BE WRITE TO WRITE 1000000 TIMES AS LONG! (and caps-lock filled <3)

    2. WOAH BITCH. YOU ARE SO GOING DOWN. ;D

      Delete
    3. Noooo! BAD POSTIE OFFICE LADY! Why didn't they give it to you?! I hope it didn't get sent back to the publisher =\

      Hahaha erm.... no, not really. Ballet/dance isn't really my thing. BUT. I do love the sound of the story, so I think it will definitely hook me in!

      It feels wrong to be happy that a book is unread, but at least I'm not the only Aussie Embrace-less! Lisa was pushing these books on me when she read Enticed/Emblaze, so they better live up to expectations now haha.

      Nawww, sorry you didn't win the DAB prize pack!! I hope thsoe smexy Merrick boys + Hunter make up for it :D EXCEPT YOU'RE NOT GODDAMN HAVING GABRIEL. I'd rant about already staking a claim on them, but it's pretty obvious Gabriel has already staked a claim on me. (I repeat: Never. Going. To. Let. You. Forget).

      Buahaha oh no... the challenge has been set. Why do I anticipate a ridiculously long, capslock filled Alice comment in the future if she comes here? You girls are going to takeove the blogosphere with your comment war! :P Also, good luck with exams!

      Wait. Scratch that. Alice just commented. And it's possible my shortest comment EVER from her. She's set a NEW record :D

      Delete
    4. Don't worry bb, my shortest comment was just...the calm before the storm. ;D YOUR ANTICIPATION ON A CAPSLOCK FILLED COMMENT WAS CORRECT! MUAH HA HA HA.

      *cough* considering you raped all the pages of Storm with Gabriel in it? OH yeah. ;D *cough*

      YES. We will indeed take over the blogosphere. *smirk*

  3. Embrace is out in North America now! I think you'll really like it. It's such a different angel book. Very addictive while reading.

    Super excited for Of Poseidon! I can't wait to read it.

    1. Ah! Thanks. I knew it was now/soon, just couldn't remember the date ;) After yours and countless other reviews recently, I am really intrigued to see what I think!

      Taking all my willpower not to dive into Of Poseidon RIGHT NOW ;)

  4. Hmmm. I actually haven't heard of The Killables before. Looks like I'll be adding another book to my ever growing to-read list *sigh*

    Great haul this week Brods. Enjoy! xx

  5. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG BRODIE YOUR MAILBOX IS FREAKING AMAZING. <3 <3 <3 <3 I LOVE IT! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK.

    I ACTUALLY haven't heard about The Killables but it looks AMAZING. Eradicating EVIL from the brain!??! HAHA. Will it even work? OMG I love me a good dystopian. I don't know what it is about them but they always seem to be so damn THRILLING. Must be the influence of my first ever dystopian...THE HUNGER GAMES. *massive flailing* Posters have started popping up near my train stations and I'm all like OMG WHY IS MY LIFE SO BAD THAT I CAN'T GO SEE MY FAVOURITE MOVIE DAMN YOUUUU YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAR 12. D; D; D; D;

    POSEIDON LOOKS AMAZING. Can you believe that I haven't read a SINGLE YA mermaid book? which is CRAZY considering how much I love Disney's The Little Mermaid. *frowns* I NEED TO READ SOME MERMAID BOOKS NOW. *mumble grumble* *steals Brodie's copy of Poseidon* *RUNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS*

    ASHFOSDUAFHOSAUFHSAOHUF YOU HAVEN'T READ EMBRACE EITHER? PHEW! THAT'S SOMETHING. XD I haven't read it myself so it's always nice to know that I'm not the only one out there. BUT I'M SO EXCITED TO READ IT ONCE I HAVE A CHANCE. But eeeek! You bought Emblaze and Enticed WITHOUT EMBRACE? Woman what is going ON?!?! OOO but you got the delicious black cover. Which do you prefer? White or black? Ying or yang? ;D

    FDSOUFHAOSDUH OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF TIME! WHOOOOOOO. THE GALLAGHER GIRLS! I SO NEED TO READ THIS SERIES. I'm so grateful I won the package that included all 5 books from you guys. <3 It's been on my to-read list for AGES so I was so excited about reading it. I can't wait for them to arrive! And I actually like these covers...idk, for some reason I'm not a fan of the US covers and prefer these ones. :P DON'T ASK ME WHY! But yay now you can read this series tooooooooooooooo! <3 CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF IT.

    Silhouette (I know what you mean Shirley! THAT WORD IS HARD SHIT TO SPELL!) sounds interesting. ;D Can't wait to see what you think of it when you eventually get around to it! AND YAY FOR AN AUSSIE READ. Embarrassingly I haven't actually gotten around to reading many Aussie books. >< >< THE SHAME!

    AWESOME WEEK FOR YOU THIS WEEK! *glomps*

    2. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. XD I CAN'T HELP MY KEY SMASHING GOODNESS! IT'S THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO EXPRESS MY EMOTIONS. XD

    3. I heard about the Killables a few months back and have been super eager for it! There's something about a messed up, twisted society that gets me all kinds of excited :D EEEE THE HUNGER GAMES!! Seriously, the number of times I've watched the freaking trailers and clips... AGH. I need to go on a detox until Thursday or I will ruin so many scenes for myself in the actual movie from over-watching them. Aw man, when are you going to see it?

      I actually haven't read a YA mermaid book either! I don't think. This will be my first! Ha, no. I received Enticed and Emblaze awhile ago randomly from the publisher, but I just didn't have time to squeeze in Embrace, so I didn't buy it yet. Now I have NO excuse not to read! I think I might like the black more... black is sexier :D

      I'm so excited for you to read the GG series! If you get to them before I do, you can be the kick up the ass I need to read book two :D I'm not a huge fan of the US ones either, AUS ones are much more gorgeous! It's understanable, since we Aussies are amazing :)

    4. LOST VOICES by Sarah Porter must be a mermaid read for you. It's amazing and dark and twisty. And if you want a fun one, FORGIVE MY FINS by Tera Lynn Childs!

  6. How did you score Of Poseidon! Want, want, want! Please fork it over..now! ;D

  7. So jealous you have a print copy of Of Poseidon! I have a copy from NetGalley, but I want the pretty on my shelf! ;) Awesome IMM! I can't wait to see what you make of all these books.

    ReplyDelete
  8. LOL!! I love scrolling down your comments so I can write my own to find that Shirley and Alice have raided it with cap locks love! Those girls = too awesome for words! x) ♥

    And OH MY GOSH, Brodie, please please please please read Out of Sight, Out of Time as soon as possible (as soon as you finish the second, third, and fourth book -- which I can't believe you haven't done yet)!! That book was honestly the most INTENSE book of the entire series! I started it at one a.m. after finishing another book and it was probably the worst thing I could've done because I didn't stop reading until I was done LOL! x) What Cammie has to go through will break your heart!

    PLUS: Yay for Of Poseidon! I have a copy of that sitting on my shelf too and there are not words for how excited I am to read it! Everyone seems to love it so far, so who am I to break the status quo? ;) (And the cover is so gorgeous!)

    Amazing mailbox this week, Brodie! Read so I can gush over these with you, okay? ♥ :)

Hahaha, hope I get the books soon so I can start reading! I've read the first book in the GG series and really enjoyed it! Killables sounds awesome! I can't wait for your review! HAHAHA, I laughed really hard after seeing Shirley's and Alice's LONG COMMENTS! They are completely rivals in capslocks or capital letters and LOOOONGGGGG comments! Anyway, happy reading Brodie! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend! :) <3

  20. Enjoy all your books! I still need to read OF POSEIDON and EMBRACE. I borrowed OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF TIME this week, but eep! I really WANTED to read it before the signing...and after...and...didn't. ^^;; I love seeing your cover for it!

  22. Although I've only just started the second in the Gallagher Girls series, I can't wait to read Out of Sight, Out of Time!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ohh, The Killables sounds really good. o: Glad you're enjoying it so far. I have to add it to my to-read pile! And yay on Of Poseidon! It looks seriously awesome. Can't wait to dive in myself! And Silhouette looks great too. o: Awesome IMM!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. AHAHAHHAHAHA! I LOVE SHIRLEY AND ALICE'S COMMENT WARS <3
    Once again, your IMM is FREAKING AMAZING.
    I have never heard of The Killables before but *shakes fist*, I DON'T NEED ANYMORE BOOKS ON MY "to read" LIST! But it sounds far too good!
    As for Of Poseidon *peers in your window* *breaks window to find book* *leaves change on bookshelf to replace broken window*

    AND I HAVEN'T READ EMBRACE EITHER! WHAT IS WRONG WITH US! Must. Read. Immediately.

    Oh my god. Hunger Games. In three days.
    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
    *shakes with excitement*

    Please excuse me, I've been scaring my friends and family for the past week with random outbursts of "OMG __ DAYS UNTIL THE HUNGER GAMES *SQUEEEEEEEEEEE*"

  25. Great mailbox this week! Yay for surprise packages from authors! I can't wait to read the Killables! And I've seen Embrace around and would definitely be interested in reading it! :D
    NEW BOOKS! NEW BOOKS! NEW BOOKS!! :D

  26. Yay for Embrace! Never had the chance to get an ARC - will probably request a copy from the bookstore! :) I got Poseidon too! And I'll get Silhouette but I'm curious about the Killables. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awww amazing mailbox!! I got Embrace too a month ago! So so good! :) I really hope you'll like it! And enjoy all your other books too! ;) :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Killables sounds like such a cool read - ERADICATING EVIL? Like, what the what? HOW DOES SOMEONE EVEN COME UP WITH THAT?! It sounds awesome though... I can just imagine the huge peaceful society where everyone is all, "here dear, let me help you with that." NO EVIL. Ahhhh, hope this is published in Canada! Although I see on GR you only gave it 3.5 stars :/ I'll have to wait for your review, my trusted Australian kangaroo <3 (LOL I can't believe I just said that...)

    OF POSEIDON!! I am sooooo excited for that one. I love mermaids (even though I freaking hated The Little Mermaid as a kid and still do *dodges bullets*) and the fact that there are going to be lots of books about the underwater creatures makes me haaaaaaaapppy! <333

    Embrace is filled with awesome and LINCOLN OR PHOENIX, WHICH ONE WILL YOU PICK? I have my suspicions ;) Anywaysssss, happy reading! Try not to explode from all of the awesome that will be filling your devious brain! :D

  29. Brooooodiiieeee, I SWEAR I commented and said something about how Alice and Shirley's comment smackdown was cracking me up, and that The Killables sounds AMAZING, and I'd not known what it was about before, but a future where they remove evil sounds FASCINATING, and then how would a Brodie survive in this future... but... apparently no?

    YOU HAS AMAZING MAILBOX! ASDAFKAJGAKFKSJGJ! OF POSEIDON! ALLY CARTER! I LOVED Heist Society, and I seriously want to read the GG books! Hope you're enjoying themmmm! <3
