In My Mailbox (40)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is designed to put new books on people's radars, and encourage blogger interaction.


You may have noticed I've been a *bit* slack on the blog. Since I've been working it's been a lot more difficult to maintain posts regularly. Major props to those of you who have always been doing it! For some reason when I was in school I had no issues, but after working all day? Totally hard to find the time/energy. But I want to try and change that a bit because I love this blog and it's definitely worth the effort.

With that being said, here are some books from the past month or so:

Bought:

- Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
- The World of Downton Abbey by Jessica Fellowes
- The Calling (Darkness Rising #2) by Kelley Armstrong

- Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11) by Rachel Caine
- The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

- Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede
- The List by Siobhan Vivian
- A Breath of Eyre by Eva Marie Mont
- Starcrossed (Thief Errant #1) by Elizabeth C. Bunce
- Liar's Moon (Thief Errant #2) by Elizabeth C. Bunce

(Note to Kobo owners: there are coupon codes out right now for 90% off -- welcome90ca & welcome90us. I used them both and they both worked for me, but they have to be on non-agency books (usually smaller publishers). I was also able to use welcome75ca & welcome75us (both for 75% off). One time use only, but they make for REALLY good deals.)

For Review:

From Simon & Schuster Canada:
- Changeling by Philippa Gregory
- Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

From Razorbill/Penguin Canada:
- Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti

From Hachette Book Group Canada:
- Out of Sight, Out of Time (Gallagher Girls #5) by Ally Carter

From Author:
- Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux
- Clockwise by Elle Strauss

From Macmillan:
- Sapphire Blue (Ruby Red #2) by Kerstin Gier
- Promised (Birthmarked #3) by Caragh M. O'Brien

      Glitch definitely sounds really cool; hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll get a chance to read it. Hard with so many awesome books coming out!

  4. When it comes to work, I totally know how you feel. You work a full day and then you want to blog but you're too bushed to do so.

    I really love your haul, I'm so envious you were able to get Sapphire Blue, Changling, and Dark Ride. :) The List is also on my bookshelf, and I'm thinking it will be my next read. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing the coupon codes for Kobo ebooks, Ashley! I have a Kindle, but I used to have a Kobo and still use that app for the Kobo books I had purchased on my iPad, so I was just able to swipe up some really good books I've been wanting to read (including Siobhan Vivian's The List) for a couple of dollars!

    1. Yay, no problem!! When I saw them on a site I was amazed, so I wanted to make sure I passed on the great deals. I got The List with that coupon too obviously, and it was crazy how cheap it made it.
