In My Mailbox #29

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi (The Story Siren) and it allows book lovers to show what they've gotten over the week. It can be books bought, borrowed, received for review, etc.

Received for Review:
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Struck by Jennifer Bosworth

Not Pictured (e-ARCs)--received via NetGalley:
The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
I had to contain myself when I saw that this went up on NetGalley. Seriously. I've been ridiculously excited about The Treachery of Beautiful Things since I saw it in Penguin's Summer 2012 catalog. Admittedly I sort of ran to my laptop and logged onto NetGalley to request it the day that it went up.

The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats
I have two words for you: historical fiction. I'm definitely looking forward to reading The Wicked and the Just and I really hope that I like it (being the historical fiction nut that I am).

Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker
I'm trying to keep myself from singing Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" right now. Having said that, contemporary fiction! I really should read more contemp. and the plot really sounds interesting.

The Académie by Susanne Dunlap
More historical fiction! Also, a gorgeous cover and it's set at a boarding school.

Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby
Teenage photographer who falls for the guy she's supposed to be getting paparazzi shots of? Sign me up! 

Transcendence by C.J. Omololu
Ridiculously excited that I got approved for this on NetGalley. Why? Past lives! I'm really excited to read it.

Burn Mark by Laura Powell 
The son of a Chief Prosecutor for the Inquisition and a girl from a family of witches both develop the fae (powers)? Yes please! It's a modern day Inquisition and witches are burned at the stake--I can't wait to see how the two of them react to everything!

Starters by Lissa Price
Admittedly what drew me to Starters was the fact that Random House is seriously promoting it and that, is why I ran off to read the summary... and then requested the book on NetGalley. The premise is definitely interesting and I can't wait to get around to reading it!

A huge thank you to Macmillan, Penguin, Bloomsbury, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and Random House for the books that are in my mailbox this week!

So that's what was in my mailbox this week; what was in yours? :D
