In case you haven't noticed, I've switched over from doing In My Mailbox postings to Stacking the Shelves (for reasons I'm sure most of you are aware of so I won't get into the dirty details). Stacking the Shelves is primarily the same thing, but its being hosted by the wonderful Tynga from Tynga's Reviews! As much as I wanted to do a vlog to share all of the AMAZING books I got this past week, I'm already swamped with homework and I've only been back to school for four days! Looks like my summer is going to be fun and homework filled! Yay!*note the sarcasm* So, without further ado, here is a quick rundown of the books I got this week....
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
My friend Jackie from The Hardcover Obsession was super amazing and pre-ordered me a copy of Insurgent for my birthday! Needless to say I went to Coles to pick it up the day it came out and inhaled it within the course of a weekend! My review of Insurgent has already been posted, so check it out here!
The Taker by Alma Katsu
After hearing so many great things about this book from Chelsey and Ikhlas I finally broke down and bought myself a copy. And I am sooo glad that I did! The Taker has now become one of my all time favourite books! It literally took my breath away! Look for my review of it coming up this week!
The Reckoning by Alma Katsu
After falling head over heels in love with The Taker, you can only begin to imagine how excited I was when Simon & Schuster Canada sent me an ARC copy of The Reckoning, the second book in the trilogy! There was definitely a lot of happy dancing involved! The Reckoning will be published in June, so make sure you all go pick up a copy of The Taker first!!!!
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
I actually received The Golden Lily from Razorbill about a month ago but I kept forgetting to include it in my In My Mailbox postings! I LOVE the Vampire Academy series so I can't wait to start this one next! First I'll have to go scrounge up a copy of Bloodlines though...
Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein
Last week Razorbill also sent me a copy of Cold Fury, which comes out in July. Apparently its supposed to be "The Sopranos meets Jason Bourne", so I'm hoping that it will be as action packed and exciting as it sounds! I love a good mob story!
