In My Mailbox 12/19

Sunday, December 19, 2010

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week. It's so much fun because we get to see what our fellow bloggers stumbled upon this week and add even more to our piles of books! Without further ado, this week I received the following books:


The Lying Game - (For Review - Thank you, HarperTeen) - I had a life anyone would kill for. Then someone did. The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does—an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet.

The Ancillary's Mark - (For Review - Thank you, Daniel Cohen) - The legend of the Ancillary flower has existed for centuries. Foretold to bring out the limitless potential of its bearer, the flower and the legend have been forgotten by many. Recently, strange events in a shrouded Tibetan town have sparked rumors among those who still believe. Jacob Deer is a quirky young man, bound for college, with an eccentric old librarian for a best friend, an obsession with sitting down in elevators, and a strange birthmark on his hand that's shaped mysteriously like the markings on the Ancillary's petals.

Frostbite - (Bought) - Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose…It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians—including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway.

Shadow Kiss - (Bought) - For Rose Hathaway, everything seems out of kilter. Ever since she made her first Strigoi kills, a dark shadow has been creeping over her. Looming in the background, too, is another realization: If she follows her forbidden love for guardian Dimitri Belikov, she might lose her best friend forever. And these sleep-shaking worries couldn't have come at a worse time. The immortal unloving are prowling everywhere, famished for vengeance against her.

  1. Yay! So you are reading the rest of the "Vampire Academy" series! I can't wait to see what you think of them! I am currently rereading "Shadow Kiss" (one of the top books of the series IMO)...
    Have a great end of the weekend!

  19. I loved The Lying Game! Can't wait to read your review. I also need to read the Vampire Academy series, but agree that the covers are awful. I might just get them from the library for my Nook, which I'm getting for x-mas. So excited! :-)

  20. I don't really like Vampire Academy covers too... But he, fortunately we don't judge a book by its cover, because those book are awesome! (well at least the first one, I've not read the others yet ^^)
    Happpy reading :)

  21. Fab books! I haven't read The Lying Game... just didn't seem like my type of read, but perhaps after your review I'll be swayed to try it.

    I loved the V.A Series- I have yet to read the last book though. As excited as I am for it to all be over, I'm afraid it won't end how I want it to. Lol.

  22. I'm with you on vampires. Not a fan. I think I've only ever read one vampire book. It was for my Libraries book club. Twilight just kind of killed vampires for me.... Maybe I'll have to check out Vampire Academy sometime though. We shall see.

  25. I am jumping on this Vampire Academy bandwagon too...we will see how it goes. I do agree with you on the covers.

    The Ancillary's Mark sounds interesting, and I can't wait to read your review on it!

  26. I'm interested in hearing more about your opinion of the VA series since you aren't a vampire person either.

    ReplyDelete
  27. YES! VAMPIRE ACADEMY! Oh I'm so happy you are reading it. I've yet to get to the second last book...which I'm waiting for the library to get on. I can barely contain my excitement already! Hope you enjoy your books!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha, I love the way you talk about the Vampire Academy books. :P I think I'm going to give them a try in 2011. I also don't like the covers much at all.

    So you don't like vampire books, but I distinctly see a certain sparkling vampire book on the shelves behind you. I think I'm going to have to go track down your review for that one...

    Hope you enjoy your books!

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL. You don't lose, Melissa. haha... Even though they're vampire books, they're not bad eh? (At least they don't sparkle...) ;) Can't wait to see your reviews for Frostbite and Shadow Kiss! :D I'm waiting for The Ancillary's Mark to show up too. Can't wait to see what you think of it! I hope you enjoy all of the books you received this week! Happy reading! :D
