In My Mailbox #14

In My Mailbox is a great meme from The Story Siren.  If you'd like to take part, visit The Story Siren's IMM page for further details.

(All clickable book titles link to Goodreads.)

Last week I mentioned a book I'd received for review from the author, but I didn't have the correct cover picture to show you.  I've now got a picture and I also found that the information has been updated on Goodreads too, so:




RUNNING FROM SECRETS by Stephanie Void

Kindle Edition






Another book I received for review this week:




TRANSPARENT LOVERS by Scott Nicholson

Kindle Edition






The next three are all books I bought because of recommendations from other bloggers.  I really must start to keep a note of who though, so I can give credit.  I always think I'll remember, but by the time the book arrives, I've forgotten.  Anyway, the books are:




WINTERGIRLS by Laurie Halse Anderson

Paperback Edition

(I am a little disappointed that I couldn't get the other cover.  I don't like this one nearly as much as the one with the girl on the front.)






HATE LIST by Jennifer Brown

Paperback Edition









TYME'S END by B.R. Collins

Paperback Edition

(Having a lot of cover-love with this one.  It's dark, its creepy, but so pretty too.  Look at those lovely pink roses in front of the gate and the unicorn gateposts.  I love the purple/blue hue, and the title is silver, not white like it looks in the picture.  I just love it!)

That's what I received in my mailbox this week.  What did you receive in yours?

I didn't get anything in my mailbox this week! ]= Oh well, still got plenty of books from last week.
Happy reading!

Great books you have there! I have to read Wintergirls soon!

Mel said...

The cover for Tymes Ends is fantastic - I agree it looks creepy from here even without the silver lettering. Can't wait to see if you like it! :)

Hope you enjoy your books Karen =)

Nice! Hate List looks like powerful stuff. Hope you enjoy them! :)

Alice Dwyer said...

Completely agree with you on the Wintergirls cover. Definitely not as nice. Hate List is meant to be amazing. It is on my shelf, just waiting to be read. Enjoy :)

Alison said...

Great books. I agree that the Wintergirls cover leaves something to be desired. At least the book itself will be the same :-) It's a really powerful story.

Running From Secrets looks really really good. I'm always attracted to books that feature dreams.

Love the cover on Tyme's End, but I don't know anything about it. It looks interesting though.

I've never heard of Tyme's End before, but I am suffering from a bit off cover love with that one too :) I have Wintergirls on my shell (a different edition than yours) but I haven't read it yet. I really need to get on that lol

Tyme's end & Wintergirls look promising.

The cover for Wintergirls still looks good but will check out the cover you were pining for next.

Great picks and hope they come out all winners :)

I haven't heard of many of these books! The only one I'm familiar with is Winter Girls. Tyme's End sounds really good! I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of it! Happy reading!

I sent you an email about Rachel Caine's other series!

I'm having a lot of cover love for Tyme's end too, it's gorgeous and eerie and I wouldn't mind having it on my shelf! Can't wait to see if you think the story lives up to the fabulous cover:)

I haven't seen that cover for Wintergirls... I prefer the cover with the icy girl on it as well.
I got an ARC of Hate List ages and ages ago, when it first came out in hardcover, and I still haven't gotten around to reading it yet!

Lori said...

I hope that you enjoy your books. Check out what was In My Mailbox.

Lazy Girl said...

Hey I'm a new follower and you have a few books that I'm really interested in reading! Thanks for reminding me about Hate List. I saw the book trailer for that and was intrigued!!

I haven't read any of these books, but I'm looking forward to reading your reviews for them. I've never even heard of the first two, but I have heard of the other three. Didn't know Wintergirls had a new PB cover...I kind of like it, but it's not nearly as striking or eye-catching as the original.

Happy reading!

Wintergirls and Hate List. I see what kind of mood you were in! Both are really great reads though Hate List is very dark. I felt completely drained after reading it. Hope you enjoy them all!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

I really need to read some Laurie Halse Anderson -- I've heard all of her books are incredible. I can't wait to see what you think of Wintergirls!

Gina @ My Precious said...

OH Wintergirls! I loved that one. Its a bit melancholy though. (But the new cover is UGLY) Running from Secrets sounds SUPER good!

TheBookAddictedGirl said...

I've read Tyme's End already, and it was amazing! Enjoy your books!

Uniquely Moi Books said...

Yay for Wintergirls! Really hope you like it! I haven't seen that cover. Yeah ,Fire is the second book to Graceling. I haven't read Graceling yet either. I've heard good things though. If your interested in Dirty Little Angels go request it at Library Thing. They have a bunch for ebooks available. Thats how I got mine. Have a great week!
