In My Mailbox (#1)

"In My Mailbox" is hosted by The Story Siren

Actually In My Mailbox:

Cinder by Marissa Meyer:
From what I understand, Cinder is basically a robot retelling of Cinderella. I originally heard about it here.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi:
This book has been getting major buzz in the book blogosphere lately. So, naturally, I have to know what all the fuss is about. It's a dystopian, one of my favorite genres, so I'll probably like it. I'm planning to go to a meet and greet with the author Wednesday, so I have to hurry up and read it.

Fracture by Megan Miranda:
This ones about a girl in a small town in Maine who falls through the ice and unexpectedly survives. When she wakes up from a coma, she finds her brain has rewired itself in strange ways. Paranormal ways. I've already read this one, but have to wait to post a review until December.
From the Library:

Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey: This book is about some kind of magic, with an LGBTQ romance. I'm looking forward to it.

If I Tell by Janet Gurtler: If I Tell is a contemporary fiction about a girl whose mother was fooling around with her sister's boyfriend, and the mother is now pregnant. I've never heard of a book with a similar premise. I have high hopes for this one.

Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry:  The highly anticipated (by me at least) sequel to Rot & Ruin

Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs: So far I haven't heard anything bad about this one. Tera Lynn Childs is also the author of the ever popular Forgive My Fins

SkyShip Academy: The Pearl Wars by Nick James:  Can I just say, awesome cover! It's matte except for the "lenses", which are shiny. The cover also has a blurb from James Dashner. The description on the back suggests it's a post-apocolypse/dystopian, but from the cover it looks very steampunk.

Every You, Every Me by David Levithan: It seems like about half of the novel is written in verse, and there are color photographs through-out. I'm always up for a unique reading experience. Whether it's maps, pictures, or transmedia.
