In My Mailbox (68)

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.

For review:

The Agency: The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee

I was really excited to see this available for request from NetGalley. I love Y.S. Lee's Agency mysteries and look forward to reading The Traitor in the Tunnel.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu

Though I am not a fan of The Snow Queen, I have heard really good things about this retelling. 

The Traitor's Daughter by Paula Brandon

The cover of The Traitor's Daughter makes it look like a historical romance but it is fantasy. I don't know much about the book but hopefully I will like it. 

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook


Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder

I finally read Poison Study and I really liked it so I went ahead and bought Magic Study. I am a fan of Snyder's Glass series which is a spin-off from this one. Unfortunately since I read that series first, I already know a lot of what will happen in the Study series.

StarCrossed by Elizabeth Bunce

From the library:

11/22/63 by Stephen King

This will be my first ever Stephen King book and it doesn't sound like what he usually writes. I like the time travel/historical aspect of it.

Lost in Time by Melissa de la Cruz

I am not sure I will read this one cover to cover. I am kind of tired of this series but I still want to know what happens :)

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber

This sounds like a fun book though I think it has received mixed reviews. I don't get the chance to read many YA contemporary novels written with male protagonists.


  1. Great haul! I read Au Revoir a few months back, and I enjoyed it. It isn't anything that will change your life, but it's a quick, fun escape. I hope you enjoy it (and, ya know, all the others too)!

  2. I was just looking for the second book in the Agency series at the bookstore. Sadly, they didn't have it. I must get my hands on a copy b/c my students really enjoyed the first book too. It's such a great series! I also got 11/22/63. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! I probably won't get to start it for awhile though. Enjoy all of your books!

  3. Great books! I really want to read 11/22/63. I hope that you enjoy your new books!

  9. Very nice haul this week! You've got some that are on my TBR list. I hope you enjoy them!

  10. I recently won a copy of Breadcrumbs and I can't wait for it to get here! :D I was curious about this Stephen King book, too! I used to read him alot when I was in high school, this definitely looks like something different for him!

  11. Some great books there! I have the Study series by Maria V Snyder say waiting to be read on my bookshelves, I've read the Opal Cowan series and really enjoyed it. I also spotted a Melissa De La Cruz book - I've read about four books in the series, I keep blowing hot and cold with them, I haven't made up my mind whether I like it or not. I've also got The Traitor's wife waiting to be read - it sounds a good book.

    Happy reading!!
