In My Mailbox Monday (7)

In My Mailbox (IMM)
was started by The Story Siren a few years back, and is a great way for bloggers to give the books they are reading (or are planning to read) a quick mention. 

Okay, so this week was crazy and I hardly had any time to read with the kids wrapping up their school year and all... That said, I still managed to get a few books on my Kindle and from the library. Now that Summer is here, I have loads of time to read them. Yay me!

Goodreads Synopsis
This is one of my most anticipated titles of the year. I was going to run right out and buy it, but since I was #1 on the library list, I waited, and it took FOREVER for them to get it into circulation. Excited to finally have it!


  1. These are all books I have my eye on. Except for Divergent & Born At Midnight and only because they are already on my reading pile :-)

    Hope enjoy all of them.

  2. I absolutely LOVED The Goddess Test! Yes, she takes liberties with the Greek myths, but thats what makes it interesting. I hope you enjoy it!


  3. Those so many of these I can't wait to reading, Divergent and Bumped probably being the top 2.

  4. I liked almost every book you got his week :) Especially Divergent!
    Enjoy :)
    Thanks for stopping by!Followed you back.

  5. Fun list of books. I'm also excited to get too Divergent and see what all the fuss is about. and I'm one of the people who liked The Goddess Test. Happy reading!

  6. The last 5 on your list are on mine as well! I can't wait to get to them, but it looks like it's going to be a little while with how long my list is getting lol. Happy reading!

    P.S following you back! : )

  7. Okay, I hope you love most of these as much as I did. I can see you had yourself a piece of book-lover heaven this week. I really hope you enjoy your new stash!

    And thanks for stopping by the blog earlier!

  8. Aww I still need to get reading on Born at midnight I bought it but its on my shelf and I really want to read Divergent too. Awesome books :)

  9. Lots of books with buzz! I have Divergent, but I don't know when I'll be able to get to it. Have high hopes, though.
    And I've heard great things about Angel Burn and Awaken, might have to look into them some time.
    Bumped was...interesting. I probably will read book 2 to see where its going but I'm not sure how I felt about it, even now, a couple of months after having read it...

  10. All books I want to read but just haven't had time to. Hope you enjoy them all!

  11. This is one seriously awesome IMM!!!
    Bitter End - One of my favourite books of 2011

    Angel Burn + Awaken are both really good too! =)
    Need to read the others.
    Happy reading

  12. Read Divergent, then The Goddess Test! Highly recommended :) here's mine.


Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
