In My Mailbox (51)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to share what books you received for review, purchased, or checked out from the library during the past week.

Books I'm most excited about: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, and A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

For review:

Don't Stop Now by Julie Halpern

I received an ARC of Don't Stop Now courtesy of Ksenia at MacMillan Children's Publishing Group. I loved Into the Wild Nerd Yonder and hope I will like this one too.

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

I was thrilled to get a copy of this through the Amazon Vine program. I've been wanting to try Sarah Addison Allen's books for years.

Gone With a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West

I first heard of this book when it was recommended at a library conference so I was happy to get a copy through the Amazon Vine program. It sounds very funny and I can't wait to read it.

From the library:

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

After reading so many positive reviews I decided to try this but I had a two month wait to get it from the library. I really hope it lives up to my expectations!

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

This book has received some really positive reviews and I look forward to starting it, hopefully next week or the week after. There is a very long waiting list at the library so I want to read it and pass it on quickly.

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

I have a feeling this will be an emotional book to read. It is a debut novel with many positive reviews. It sounds like a book that would be a good crossover for adults or a good book club pick.

Chime by Franny Billingsley

Chime has received really good reviews and I like reading about magic. It is also a debut novel that I'm reading for the Debut Author Challenge.

What did you get in your mailbox this week? Have you read any of the books on my list? What did you think of them?


  1. Ahh I hope Unearthly lives up to your expectations too! I thought it was SO good! I've heard amazing things about Chime too, and a friend is loaning me her copy -- can't wait to read it!

  2. Unearthly, Chime and Between Shades of Gray have been sounding amazing! I hope you enjoy all the fab books :)
