In My Mailbox #40

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!

I've just started reading Until I Die today and love!! I'm only up to chapter 5, but oh, I do adore these characters. It's been ages since I read Die For Me, but from the first page I fell back into everything I loved about the first book <3

Earth Girl is SO my kinda read!! Futuristic. Sci-fi. Deception. Planets. Freak solar storm. Romance. Gushing reviews already coming in. Gorgeous cover. WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE? I am really excited to get started on this one, fingers crossed I love it!

I grabbed Blood Bound from the library because: 1) I hear so much about Rachel Vincent and yet I HAVE NEVER READ ONE OF HER BOOKS and 2) I really, really need to add some adult books to my 'read and loved' lists. I'm a hardcore YA lover, but I'd like to dip into adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy, etc. Let's hope this goes wel!

And lastly, When You Were Mine! I love the idea of telling Rosaline's story and I've been hearing some good comments about this from blogger friends the past few days, soooooo me hopes their opinions are not dodgy. I kid, I love you all! Most of you. Some of you. Buahahaha.

What's in your mailbox this week?

By the way, have you been tuning into the STORM Blog Tour all this week? Character interviews, excerpts, video chat, secrets of the series and an author Q&A's where YOU ask the questions! Did I mention there are FOURTEEN PRIZE PACKS, one of which includes an ARC of the hotly anticipated sequel, SPARK?! You better whip yourself over to check out the details right here.


  1. I got nothing this past week. But I would really like to read Earth Girl. Sounds awesome!

  2. Oooooh! When You Were Mine!! Aaaahhh! *is jealous*
    Ummm... And Earth Girl? Uh... Sci-fi, you say? Uh, wow! I even love the teaser on the front cover! All... Interesting... And... Umm.... Fascinating and delicious and OMFG WANT NOW NOW!

    Also: do you know how hard it is writing in ALL CAPS on ones phone? Well... Not hard, but irritating. Like Caroline in S1 TVD *glares*


    Errr... Also... Umm... Your IMM... Yes... Back on track. Is awesome. *strokes* :D

    *ninja hugs*

  3. I want to read Blood Bound too! I saw the second book at Book Depository and was so interested. I'm going to get it from my library too. (Broke from buying too many books) :D

    Happy reading!

  4. Ooh, I haven't come across Earth Girl before, but it sounds like my kind of book too! -adds to tbr-

    Happy reading! <3

  5. BLOOD BOUND!!!! I won the book from a giveaway and since I haven't read any Rachel Vincent's books, Blood Bound might just be my first Rachel Vincent book!

    EARTH GIRL. I've heard of the book before and it really sounds good! Can't wait for your review, Brodie!

    UNTIL DIE. I REALLY LOVED IT! It was so sweet, romantic and heart-breaking. Vincent and Kate ♥ (Oh geez, I'll admit I love Jules too! :P)

    And When You were Mine! I just finished this book and it was really great! I liked how the unique re-telling of Romeo & Juliet!

    AWESOME IMM, Brodie! ♥ Can't wait for your reviews on each book!

  6. I read When You Were Mine and I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. Until I Die is great. Can not wait to see your reaction to the end of it.

    Great mailbox Brodie!

  7. imm time/// peeks/ likes/ coool/ i so want earth girl
    enjoy all brodie

  8. I just finished Until I Die . . . be warned . . . there's a cliffhanger. I LOVE Blood Bound (Rachel Vincent is a genius) and I didn't mind When You Were Mine . . . it was an okay read for me. Anyway great book haul, Brodie!

  9. Brooodie! Blood Bound! It is awesome! So complicated and clever and just brilliant! I love all of Vincent's series!
    I have When You Were Mine, but I've yet to read it yet. Looking forward to it though. Received If I Die last week, and got Die For Me this week, I'm excited to read them both! :D Happy reading!

  10. I haven't read anything by Rachel Vincent either, so don't feel too bad, Brodie! Lol. I do own several of her books though, including Blood Bound. Hope you enjoy it!

  11. You must read Rachel Vincent's YA books when you can! Her Soul Screamers series is pretty good. :) I haven't read any of her adult books, but I probably should do one day. It feels like I haven't read any adult fiction in years... :D Anyway, awesome mailbox! i hope you enjoy all these new books. :)

  12. So so jealous of Earth Girl, it sounds amazing! Until I Die looks great too - plus aren't the covers in that series just amazing? Happy reading!

  13. YAY! I'm reading Until I Die at the moment too ;) Cannot wait to read all of Rachel Vincent's books! *squee* And looking forward to getting When You Were Mine next week. Looks good <3

    My Mailbox

  14. Some nice titles there. I haven't read much rack Vincent either. I borrowed a couple also from the library but had to return them before I got a chance to read them.

    I am dying to read until I die though.
    You can find my IMM here: html

    Happy reading! :-)

  15. Hi crazy chick who found the Storm cover models! :) I'll be waiting for your thoughts of When You Were Mine and Earth Girl. They both sound good! Happy reading. ;)

    See what I got! I'm no longer doing IMM, but I'm still doing book hauls.

  16. Love your loot this week. I am looking forward to your review of Until I Die. I need to read Rachel's books too! You can read my news on The Sunday Post

  17. ZO MY GOD! I want Earth Girl! And Until I Die! Happy reading!
    My Stack

  18. You got such awesome books!! When You Were Mine sounds amaaazing, I really need to read it. I've got Blood Bound and haven't read it, but I love both the soul screamers and shifters series so I'm sure I will adore it when I do eventually read it. Until I Die is one I really need to get

    The Cait Files

  19. HOW HAVE YOU NOT READ A RACHEL VINCENT BOOK BEFORE? Oh my goodness, Brodie, she's one of my favourite authors EVER and I can't believe you've never been witness to her awesomeness before!! :O I haven't read any of her adult books yet, but her Soul Screamers series is one of my favourites (just because of the amazing TOD HUDSON! Eeeeee! <3) so you need to get on starting that ASAP! The first few books are great, but as soon as you get to If I Die? YOU will die from the awesome! x)

    Hehe, and because I just finished Until I Die too... YAY!!

    Awesome mailbox this week, Brodie! Do I love you? Yes, I totally do! <3 :) I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  20. OOO, Earth Girl looks fantastic, and you MUST read Blood Bound or Shifters series by Rachel, she is marvellous! ;) Enjoy all your books!

  21. Blood Bound! I haven't read this series yet (though I very much want to) but I absolutely ADORE her Soul Screamers series, I highly recommend them :)

    My IMM/Books I got this week/Whatever you want to call it ;)

  22. I can't wait to hear what you think about Until I Die, Brodie! I enjoyed reading Die For Me last year, and I'm hoping the second book in the series is just as great. Happy reading!

  23. Yay for Until I Die - I'm reading it at the moment and it's good so far. Hope you enjoy it!

  24. *HI 5* I HAVEN'T READ ANY OF RACHEL VINCENT'S BOOKS EITHER!!! (But I DO plan to-starting with finishing the first Soul Screamer book :S)

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee! EARTH GIRL. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG HDIUSADHUSADHIA IT SOUNDS SOOOO FREAKING AMAZING!!!! Gahhh I'm a HUGE fan of sci-fi after reading Unravelling so I'm looking forward to it!

    Ahem. Can you believe I haven't read UNTIL I DIE yet? Goshhh, I'm so behind with 2011 debuts :S Anywayyyy i hope you enjoy Until I Die!!!

    Hmmmm...I didn't particularly care about Rosaline when I studied Romeo and Juliet so I have doubts about When You Were Mine. I mean...Rosaline never liked Romeo, right? SO HOW IS THIS A RE-TELLING IF SHE CLEARLY LIKES HIM HERE, HUH?!?!?! Okayy ranting aside, apparently it's pretty good! Maybe I WILL start it soon<3
