In My Mailbox (67)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme inspired by Alea and hosted by Kristi. Check out Kristi's post to see what others got in books this week!

Surprisingly, I DO have books to talk about this week! Thanks to the astounding generosity of a few individuals, and the device built into my brain that hones in on any and all used bookstores within a 15km radius, I managed to acquire some new, fabulous books.


For review:
Relic Master, Book 1: The Dark City by Catherine Fisher
Relic Master, Book 2: The Lost Heiress by Catherine Fisher
Relic Master, Book 3: The Hidden Coronet by Catherine Fisher
Relic Master, Book 4: The Margrave by Catherine Fisher

Picture me jumping up and down and silently screaming in joy when Big Honcho Media was so astoundingly kind as to send me these four books for review. Shipping to China is no easy business, and I really appreciate the lengths to which they went for me. I'm honored; thank you. I can't wait to read this series!

For e-review:
Into the Parallel by Robin Brande

Another act of kindness that bowled me over. Robin, who is one of my favorite authors thanks to the behemoth YA contemporary accomplishment that is Fat Cat, offered me a copy of her latest novel for e-review! I have been excited for this book ever since I found out, over a year ago, that Robin was doing research on string theory for it. Cue the astrophysics geek in me. I don't think this will disappoint. Thank you, Robin!!

Bought:
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
East by Edith Pattou
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman (not pictured)

I found a used bookstore! It's about the size of an average single person's bedroom, maybe smaller, but some patient digging into its double-stacked shelves revealed some gems. As I already have copies of these books back in the States, these will be donated to my company's library once I have finished them (I've already donated The Subtle Knife and plan on somehow acquiring the other two books in the series so I can reread/finish it).

So so so so happy that I was able to participate in IMM this week!

  1. It's so lovely of them to mail the series to China. I'm actually looking forward to reading that series after finishing Catherine Fisher's INCARCERON series, and am curious how you like them.
