In My Mailbox #6

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where we get to feature all the wonderful books (whether it be actually in our mailbox, from the library, the store, e-books...whatever) we received in the past week. I had a great week this week! Barnes and Noble had a GREAT coupon this week for 50% off all teen books!! My lovely hubby took me there last night and let me do some shopping, and I also placed an order online. I will include my online order books with NEXT week's IMM...I've got enough to feature this week anyway! :)

The upper 2 rows are books I ordered from for my author study of Patricia Reilly Giff for one of my classes. For those, I got:

1. Pictures of Hollis Woods (excellent book!)
6. The Gift of the Pirate Queen (one of my childhood faves!!!)

Then, the bottom row I got from Barnes and Noble using a 50% off teen books coupon! Cound not turn that down! :)

1. Truth by Julia Karr (can't wait to read this - I loved XVI!)
2. Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly 
3. Shine by Lauren Myracle (been excited for this one!)
4. Jars of Glass by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler
5. Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

From Netgalley I received (click on the covers to check them out on Goodreads!):

Kindle freebies that I recieved:

So, as you can see, all in all, it was a great week for books! I didn't even get a chance tot get to the library (they have a couple holds for me), so I expect that my NEXT IMM will be even better!! Would love to see everything you all got this week! Leave me a link! Happy reading!

I enjoyed Angel burn and I've started reading Angel Fire which is a little slower but still good so far, however, it is huge something like 700 odd pages :)

Enjoy your books, Great IMM! :)

For some reason I just couldn't get into XVI when I tried to. Maybe I'll have to give it another go. Happy reading! :)

Yeah, I should have took more advantage of the B&N coupon! Will have to do so next time, but I did buy a few books with that one though as well as a preorder online! Gotta use that on the hardcovers!!

Yay! I really liked Darker Still, I hope you do too. The cover of Exiled looks a lot like Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games imho.
