In My Mailbox (53)

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.

For Review:

Received an ARC of The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan from the publisher for review. Very excited to see this in my mailbox, as I enjoyed book one, The Strain!

From the authors of the instant New York Times bestseller The Strain, comes the next volume in one of the most imaginative and frightening thriller series in many, many years! Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world...

From the Library:

I've been trying to get my hands on a copy of Holly Black's White Cat for awhile now, so was very happy when the library called to say my reserved copy had come in! Entered contest after contest for this one, but no luck. I'm still on a self-imposed book buying ban, so borrowing it from the library will have to do for now.

Cassel comes from a family of curse workers - people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail - he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.


My preorder of The Darkest Edge of Dawn by Kelly Gay finally arrived! One of the nice things about preorders is that I usually forget about them, so they're always a nice surprise when they turn up! Love Kelly's writing, and really looking forward to reading this one!

It takes a strong woman to keep the peace in a city of endless night. . . . Deep beneath Underground, a cunning bid for power and revenge has begun - one that threatens to make Atlanta the new battleground in the ultimate confrontation between good and evil. The powers of hellish Charbydon have the upper hand after plunging the city into primordial night. And under the cover of darkness, a serial killer targets the most powerful Elysians in the city, the angelic Adonai. For Detective Charlie Madigan and her siren partner Hank, tracking deadly predators is all in a day’s work . . . but this case will test the limits of their strength and friendship as it draws them into a deadly world of power plays, ancient myths, explosive secrets, and a race against time that risks all that Charlie holds dear.

Looking forward to seeing all the treasures everyone got in their mailboxes this week!

  10. The fall looks creepy/scary. I heard White Cat is awesome.Hope u enjoy them!

  11. I still have White Cat buried somewhere in my TBR stack. Too many books, too little time! I do most of my pre-orders from Amazon and file the emails in a folder. I also tag each message with the release date of the book I ordered. It helps me keep track of what is coming. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  12. I still need to read The Strain. It's been on my wish list forever. I need to get to it now otherwise I'm going to fall way behind.

  13. Nice mailbox! The second book in the Strain series is suppose to be really good....enjoy! ^_^

  14. Nice mailbox!! I keep meaning to pick up the Strain... I should move that up in my TBR :)

  15. Oh I haven't heard of any of these! I am so out of the loop! Looking forward to seeing what you think of them.

  16. Why does your library have such better books than ours? I am jealous!
