In My Mailbox (8)
In My Mailbox is a meme posted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, where you create a post of the books you either received in the mail, bought at a bookstore, or borrowed from the library. If you'd like to know my thoughts about IMM, check out the link near the top of my blog called In My Mailbox. Simple, right? Anyway, onto the books!
NOTE: If you're unfamiliar with how I do things with my IMM, I basically give a little back story to the books I have pictured. Also, if there are ARC's, I'll give a synopsis and date published.
~Plague by Michael Grant: I actually got this signed earlier today. There were literally only like 5 people there so it was a more personal author event. I'll post up a recap of the event soon. I'm very excited to start this series now that I've met the man behind the books.
~Hades by Alexandra Adornetto: So I thought this author was going to be part of the Pen Fatale tour with Alyson Noel, Jessica Brody, and Mary E. Pearson, and as I have yet to start this series, I bought it for that reason. But it turns out she's no longer with the tour... Oh well, I'll get to this series eventually. And I like the cover.
~Possess by Gretchen McNeil: On Sunday I'll be getting this copy signed by the author! I'm so excited to meet her and start this awesome book. Once I finish it and write up review, I'll also be featuring an interview with Gretchen, so look for that sometime this month. Obviously, I'll be reviewing this one.
~Fury by Elizabeth Miles: This is another event author, who I'll be seeing later this month with Becca Fitzpatrick and Moira Young. Lately this hasn't gotten the best reviews, but I always love mythology books, and the cover is just so perty! I'll likely be reviewing this one.
~All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin: I've had her first novel, Elsewhere, on my shelf for a while. She's also part of the Pen Fatale tour. I'm actually really excited to read this one, despite some reviews.
~Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon: I've always heard great things about this book and it sounds awesome. This is another author that I'll be meeting this Sunday. I hope to get pictures of every author for you to gander at.
Tune in next week for In My Mailbox (9)! And don't forget to check out the swag giveaway that's going on until the end of October (to which I'm probably adding even more goodies to)!!
