In My Mailbox (17)

Hello, this is my seventeenth week involved with In My Mailbox, a weekly blogging meme hosted by The Story Siren. The point is to share the books you have acquired over the last two weeks.

This week I received more books than last time. A very happy fact, but a fact that also means my time sleeping is going to be decreasing. It's just hard to go to sleep on time when you have such great books to read. 

Books I received for review from authors:

The Start-up and The Anti-Social Network (Start-up, #2) by Sadie Hayes- I wanted to read this one, so I was excited when Sadie asked me to review this one. It looks intriguing.  I also received the sequel. I'm definitely interested in getting to these two. 

Books I checked out from the library:

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter- I was asked to review the sequel and so I checked this one out. I really enjoyed this one. I'll be interested in seeing what happens next. Review forthcoming.

Books I received for review from Netgalley:

Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf- I saw this one on a WoW a little while ago. I can't remember whose, but whoever it was thanks for bringing this one to my attention. It's about a girl who was in a car crash where her abusive boyfriend died. If only she remembered what happened before the crash. Sounds good. 

A Promise for Miriam by Vannetta Chapman- This one is an Amish Christian fiction novel. I love this genre 80% of the time and so I'm looking forward to reading this one.

(couldn't find cover art for this one, sorry)

Narc by Chrissa-Jean Chappell- This one sounds good. The first line in the synopsis reads: "You're going to hate me forever when you learn my secret." I love that. A seventeen year old was given a chance go to jail or become a narc. He chose to be a narc. Sounds good. 

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda- This one just looks so good and so far I've heard good things about it. I'm definitely interested in this one.

Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin- This one also sounds really good. They are comparing it to some of my favorite books, which is always dangerous. But I figured I'd give this one a shot.

Unspoken by Sarah Rrees Brennan- This one just looks good. The cover, the synopsis, and the title all drew me in. 

The Next Target by Nikki Arana- The title drew me in and so did the idea of the whole novel really. I'm really excited for this one. 

Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahaim- I have a feeling like this is going to be one of those books that is hard to read because it breaks your heart. However, it looks really good. It's about slavery and well it looks good, so I'm in. 

Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay- I finally managed to track down the first one. And it's about Romeo and Juliet, so yeah I have to read these two. 

Summer Breeze by Nancy Thayer- This one also just looked good, and I liked the title and the synopsis. 

Burn by Heath Gibson- This one just looked really intriguing. It seems to be dealing with a lot of family issues and I usually like these books. To those who care, there is a gay character. However, he's not the main character and so I think I'll be fine reading this one. 

The City's Son by Tom Pollock- It just looks intriguing. Yep, I just reread the synopsis and I want to read this one. Not overly fond of the cover, but it still sounds good.

Eyes of Justice by Liz Wheil with April Henry- I just read a book by April Henry and liked it so I thought I'd try this one. Plus, I love a good mystery. I'm excited for this one as well.

That's it for me. What did you guys get this week? Feel free to leave your link in the comments. I read every single one.

  11. @Laura, it happens to the best of us. And thanks you are welcome.

    @Fireflywishes, I'm discovering that I have very little self-control when it comes to books. I'm giving up sleep for reading. Probably not the smartest. :)
