In My Mailbox #33

November 13, 2011

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours or publishers!

Here are the books I’ve gotten in the past two weeks…

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (purchased)
Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon (purchased)
Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck (thanks to Publishers)
Sweep: Volume IV by Cate Tiernan (purchased)
Cinder (ARC) by Marissa Meyer (thanks to Publishers)
Smoulder (The Space Between) by Brenna Yovanoff (thanks to Publishers)

I’m reading Cinder at the moment and it’s absolutely fantastic. I wasn’t at all interested in this book until I heard some glowing recommendations, and I’m really glad I picked it up! I can’t wait to finish it and write up my review. As for The Name of the Star, I’ve been waiting on this one to ship for EVER! It finally arrived last week with Carrier of the Mark. I’ll get around to reading both very soon. I’m also going to one day re-read the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan – which I love – so I’ve added to my bind-up collection with Volume IV this week. Hopefully Volume V (released in December) arrives soon. I’ve already got it pre-ordered.

I’m still yet to start the Collen Houck series, although I’ve heard they’re fantastic. I’m glad to have Tiger’s Voyage, so that I have the complete collection available when I finally begin it! As for Smoulder (the Australian title for The Space Between) by Brenna Yovanoff, I’ve been curious about this one for a while. Hopefully it lives up to my expectations!

What did you get this week? Link me up to your mailboxes and I’ll check it out!

    Your IMMs always remind me of books that I still need to read… like Tiger’s Curse… and the Sweep series. Started it but I’ve never continued….

    OH MAN, I am so jealous that you have CInder. ):
    I hear good things about Name of the Star, I’ll def. look into it.

    Great haul :)

    Holy crap! That haul is Made of Awesome. I didn’t like Carrier of the Mark at all, but I did like The Name of the Star a lot so I hope you enjoy that. And I want to read Houck’s series at some point, as well as The Space Between when it finally comes out.

    Happy reading, Brittany!

    I LOVE Cinder!! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I didn’t think I’d love it this much. Cannot wait for the sequel already! I’m reading Smoulder at the moment and liking it so far. Ooh I have yet to read the Sweep series but I loved Cate’s Immortal Beloved books, so I might have to check them out. Awesome mailbox, hope you enjoy!

    The Name of the Star seems really interesting! I got the Carrier of the Mark a few weeks ago too, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. It sems very good though!

    Finally! that copy of Name of the Star took ages.. Is Carrier of the Mark out here? I haven’t seen it anywhere, but I really want to get a copy. I’ll probably have to give BookDep more of my money.
