In My Mailbox 9

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and originally inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie, used to showcase the books we bought, borrowed, got for review...

For review


Gilt by Katherine Longshore
Keep Holding on by Susane Colasanti
The Glimpse by Claire Merle

Thank you so much Penguin Young Readers Group and Faber and Faber for these fantastic books! I'm excited to read all of them, but Keep Holding On... Ugh. It sounds so amazing I'm tempted to start it tonight and see for myself.

From library

Fire by Kristin Cashore
La Estrella by Javi Araguz and Isabel Hierro
Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien

After reading the awesome first part Graceling, of course I couldn't resist waiting more for the second book, Fire (titled "Fuego" in Spanish). I've read the characters are different from the first one, but I don't care! I just need more graceling goodness in my life right now. La Estrella (in English, "The Star") is a Spanish YA book. I usually don't read many books by Spanish authors, but this one sounded amazing and I hope I like it. And then Birthmarked. I don't really know what it's about or why I picked it up, but I'm hoping it'll be a nice read.

Enjoy all your wonderful books!

Happy reading xoxo,

Mimi Valentine said...

Oh Sophie, can I BEAR HUG your mailbox? I really, really want to! x) I've been dying to read Keep Holding On, Gilt, and The Glimpse too ever since I saw all their gorgeous covers at first, but even more after I read what they were actually about haha! ;)

And FIRE!! *dances* We all knew this one was coming since you loved Graceling like the rest of us (haha -- peer pressure!). And even though it's so different from book one, they're both connected in Bitterblue (where we get to meet Katsa and Po again ♥), so you kind of HAVE to read it! ;) Plus, I love it when you can find surprise books at the library!

A-ma-zing mailbox this week, Sophie! I hope you had a FANTASTIC weekend, and I can't wait to read all of your thoughts on those beautiful books! :) ♥

Arila said...

Voy a investigar en netgalley tus nuevos libros para reseñar :)

¡Fuegoooo! -Parece que hay un incendio o algo jaja- Yo también lo tengo desde hace un montón, a ver si me pongo pronto con él, lo malo es que de graceling no me acuerdo ya tan bien, lo leí hace creo que tres años O_O

Un beso :)

Carina said...

I only found out today that GILT and KEEP HOLDING ON are on NetGalley. Looks like I might give in and request even more books (even though I have more than enough eARCs).

Lovely bunch of books, hun! I really hope you're going to enjoy everything. ♥


Kelly said...

Awesome IMM! Your the second person I've seen who has mentioned Keep Holding On, so I definitely have to add it to my TBR list. Happy reading!

I tried to get an example of Gilt via Netgalley, but it was declined :( On the other hand: I got The Glimpse and that one sounds great too. I'm looking forward to your review about Gilt!
