IMM & Week in Review: The Fairy Tale Edition, Pt. I

IN MY MAILBOX: 02.05.12

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!


*Win a Pack of Prom-Themed Books from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt! (until April 30th!)

*Like fairy tales?  There are a few giveaways coming up for Fairy Tale Fortnight this week, so stick around!

(Which isn't a fairy tale, but I only have, like, two left to read, and I am giving myself a break because I deserve it...especially for something so good that I'm already halfway through it! ♥)

The Fairy Tale Edition, Part I!

Because, um, if you haven't noticed...

It's Fairy Tale Fortnight!

I've been working my enchanted tail off trying to bring you guys a lot of fun books!  Unfortunately, all of my interviews/guest posts/etc. were stacked into the second week, so the first week was basically just reviews.  Sorry about that!  I cannot wait to reveal the rabbit in my hat this week for you all!

So far, my favorite book to share this week has been CIRCLE OF CRANES by Annette Lebox, so check out that review, if nothing else!  The book just came out this month!

While you're here, if you haven't voted in IBBA yet, I'd love your vote!  The top four winning blogs get to go to BEA, and I promise that if I win, I'll be sharing some coveted ARCs with all of you through giveaways!

And now, the books!

{Another box of books that I ordered last year finally arrived with a pre-order, yay!}

*THE THIEF by Megan Whalen Turner 
{I have wanted to read this for SO long after hearing such amazing things about the series!  I didn't know that I really wanted to wait until April to get it, but I wanted that free shipping, so...! *shrug*}

*A CONSPIRACY OF KINGS by Megan Whalen Turner 
{So glad the library had this in already!  I've been curious ever since seeing other bloggers with IMMs full of this ARC!}

*THE KING OF ATTOLIA by Megan Whalen Turner 
{So glad the library had this in already!  I've been curious ever since seeing other bloggers with IMMs full of this ARC!}

*THE QUEEN OF ATTOLIA by Megan Whalen Turner 
{So glad the library had this in already!  I've been curious ever since seeing other bloggers with IMMs full of this ARC!}

*STORM by Brigid Kemmerer 
{I have wanted this since Brigid received her publishing deal and it's here, it's finally here!}

*AWAKEN by Katie Kacvinsky
{Which I borrowed and read last year, but never had time to review.  ^^;;;  But obviously I liked it, since I finally have a copy to call my own!}

{I've been wanting to read this for a long time, and finally bought it at a good price last year only to find out that someone had scammed me and sent me an ARC.  You never, ever sell ARCs--especially if you list it as a finished hardcover!  I was disheartened and never got around to it.  Now I'm happy to try again!}


*CIRCLE OF CRANES by Annette LeBox
{Which I've already reviewed!  Um, and LOVED.  So you should read it, like, right now!}

 e-books for Review:

*SKYLARK by Megan Spooner  [Out Oct. 01, 2012]
{Thank you to Carolrhoda Lab/Lerner Publishing Group and Netgalley!  This one sounds great, and will be hyped a lot at this year's BEA!  It's been on my radar for a while now.}
*THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas  [Out Aug. 07, 2012]
{Thank you to Bloomsbury and Netgalley!  For those of you who didn't read my interview with Sarah in January or see me talking up this book for at least a year, um, where have you been hiding? ^.~  I'll be reviewing this and two of the four prequel novellas this week for FTF!  Yes, as soon as I'm done INSURGENT, this is so the next book I'm reading....Ahh, can't wait!}
