In My Mailbox (68)

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!

I think my bookish fortune has no bounds, because this is the second week in a row that I'm able to participate in IMM, thanks to the astounding generosity of Macmillan Publishing and Rachael of The Book Muncher, who interned there this summer and made Christmas in July ACTUALLY FREAKING POSSIBLE. (Well, sort of. Minus the appearance of a jolly fat white man dressed in red crash-landing into my apartment.)

For review:
Prized (Birthmarked, Book 2) by Caragh O'Brien
Without Tess by Marcella Pixley
The Survival Kit by Donna Freitas
Amplified by Tara Kelly
When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen
Various Positions by Martha Schabas

Yes, so you see, it did snow ARCs in Shanghai this week. I'm out of my mind with excitement at these lovely (physical!) books. Prized, of course, goes without saying, as I have been waiting for this sequel since I gave Birthmarked 5 out of 5 stars (y'know, back when I was doing ratings) last year. Donna Freitas can't disappoint, and as for the others, I feel so lucky that I have the opportunity to read them in ARC form!

So once again, a heartfelt thank you to Rachael, Caragh, and others at Macmillan who gave me this lovely gift. Can't wait to start reading these! (Eeeeeee!)
