In My Mailbox (30)

In My Mailbox | Alexia's Books and Such
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I have included links to Goodreads should you want more information on the books.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Received a copy of Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver as part of the Barnes and Noble First Look program. What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life? Samantha Kingston gets a second chance after she dies. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death - and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood
Received Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood from a contest hosted by Danielle at her Opinionated? Me? blog. What does it really take to survive a catastrophic event and what kind of survivor are you? Figured it would be good to know how to survive long enough to read everything in my TBR piles! *L*

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa was the book I was anxiously awaiting all week! Had an official release date of February 1st, but they were shipped early. Was looking forward to reading it so much that it jumped straight to the top of my TBR pile, and I've already read and reviewed it! You can check out my review here. Has made my favorites list for the year so far!

So...what did you receive in your mailbox this week?


  1. I'm interested in what you have to say about your first book, it sounds like a interesting premise. Reminds me of the TV show Daybreak with Taye Diggs.

  2. You and I both received The Iron King this week! Glad that you enjoyed it! I haven't started it yet... but it's high on my tbr list! :)

    I have a contest running on my blog right now for the book Break by Hannah Moskowitz. Feel free to check it out. :)
