Welcome to my very first post for In My Mailbox (IMM)! IMM is a weekly meme created by Kristi @ The Story Siren which features books bought/received in the mail, borrowed from the library as well as other awesome book-related goodies in your mailbox.
Note: IMM is probably not going to be a weekly thing for me, what with school and other stuff. I'll do my best though!
The Small Blue Thing trilogy by S. C. Ransom. I read Small Blue Thing about two or three years ago and loved it very much. I could never find Perfectly Reflected (the second book) in the library after it was released, and subsequently, the series fell off my radar. I'm so pleased to have found the whole trilogy now!
A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix. I loved Nix's Keys to the Kingdom series, and though I'm not big on sci-fi, I borrowed this because – oh come on, it's by Garth Nix!!
Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama. I'd seen this on a few mermaid book lists but never quite prioritised it on my to-read list. My search for other mermaid novels proved to be futile today, so this shall suffice (:
Starling by Lesley Livingston. This book had me at the mention of Norse gods and is supposedly action-packed, with fencing in the mix.
The White Rabbit Chronicles (Book 1 & 2) by Gena Showalter. Alice in Wonderland has always intrigued me, and Tim Burton's movie of the same name was simply astounding. I've heard rave reviews about Alice in Zombieland and can't wait to start on this series!
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. I know, I know – I should've read this sooner and all, but better late than never! This book has fallen angels and bad boys in it.
Spellcaster by Claudia Gray. Being a fan of the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins, I had to borrow this. Spellcaster's synopsis screams witches and curses, and I do love a witchy book every now and then!
I received a signed sampler and bookmark of Degrees of Wrong by Anna Scarlett, which I won in a giveaway hosted by Carly @ Lis Les Livres. Thanks Carly! (:
