In My Mailbox #15

Has it really been a whole week since my last post? Yikes! Sorry about's been one of those weeks. I've been sick, and I've been bogged down by homework (we're winding up the semester, so it's probably going to get worse before it gets better). Just been a little bit stressed. I'll try to do better this week, but I know that I have some huge projects due for school coming up, so let's just say I'll do what I can! Once summer arrives, I'll have so much time to work on the blog, you all will be so sick of me, lol!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers get a chance to show off the goodies they got over the past week.  My kids' school had a book fair, so that meant some goodies for me!

First, here's what I got in my mailbox for review:

The Last Seer and the Tomb of Enoch by Ashland Menshouse (sent by the author who signed it and included the little postcard on the bottom)
Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame (The Enchanted Attic #1) by L.L. Samson (sent by Zondervan)

Next are the books that I purchased:

Cherub: The Recruit by Robert Muchamore (bookstore had bargain books buy 2, get 1 free)
The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti (buy 2, get 1 free)
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (buy 2, get 1 free, and I needed it for my YA Lit class)
Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone by J.K. Rowling (yes, it is true - I have never read it! But, that will change this summer!)
The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman
As Simple as It Seems by Sarah Weeks
Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood

This is what I got from Netgalley:
January First: A Child's Descent Into Madness And Her Father's Struggle To Save Her

I saw the story of this little girl on a TLC special awhile back, and so I am very interested in reading this book. I love reading anything psychological in nature, and I know this will be a heartbreaking read, but insightful all the same.

Well, that concludes another week of what was In My Mailbox...have you read any of these, and if so what did you think?

All those books look fantastic! Deb Caletti is a great writer and don't be ashamed that you haven't read HP yet, I haven't read The Lightning Thief ;)
The Grim Legacy looks like something I could really like! I hope you're going to review it^^

Enjoy all your new books, Nickey @ The Book Shop Assistant

I'm currently reading January First and it's very sad so far, but an amazing story.

I'm a bit jealous that you get to read Harry Potter for the first time! I hope you find it as magical as I did as a kid.
Percy Jackson is a really fun series! Enjoy it.

Have a good week, Kary!

Great set! I hope you love the Harry Potter series! The first two books are quite juvenile, but it becomes much darker and more grown up starting in the third and fourth books.

You're like me when it comes to buying books. Can't just get 2 or 3! I've read some awesome books from Zondervan so I hope you like Facing the Hunchback; I haven't read it!

Thanks for stopping by my IMM post; I'm following back <3
