*STARCROSSED by Elizabeth C. Bunce
{I've previously reviewed another novel by Bunce, A CURSE DARK AS GOLD, based around the tale of Rumpelstiltskin.  I'm not sure if this is a fairy tale or not, but I've wanted to read it for a while and I found a copy at a bargain book warehouse shop that opened near me for only $3!!!}

{This is the third or fourth time I've attempted to snag this one from the library now.  Maybe I'll read it this time? ^^;  It's about a girl whose ring takes her "through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China."}

{Erhm, I've snagged this one from the library before, too...and started it! It was just due back before I could finish...}

*TRINITY by C.J. Bolyne

*FIREBRAND by Gillian Philip
{Out Feb. 19, 2013}

*WHAT WE SAW AT NIGHT by Jacquelyn Mitchard
{Out Jan. 08, 2013}
{Thanks to Edelweiss and Soho Teen! I love Jacquelyn Mitchard.  LOVE.  She writes for both teens and adults, and her new book falls in the YA category and is in the veins of Ishiguro's NEVER LET ME GO.}

*COLLATERAL by Ellen Hopkins
{Out Nov. 06, 2012}
{Thanks to Edelweiss and Atria Books! The tag states that the book "captures the hearts of the soldiers on the battlefield and the minds of the friends, family, and lovers they leave behind."  I recently R&R my first Hopkins novel, TILT, and thought her new adult novel sounded like her most promising title [for my tastes] yet.}

*DOOMED by Tracey Deebs
{Out Jan. 08, 2013}
{Thanks to Netgalley and Bloomsbury! I've interviewed the author in the past for her TEMPEST trilogy about mermaids as well as reviewed her co-written novel under a pen name, THE INTERNATIONAL KISSING CLUB.  This one is about a Greek-themed MMO game and a  girl named Pandora who opens an email attachment that brings a killer virus to our society!}
{Out Oct. 29, 2012}
{Thanks to Netgalley and Carina Press! This one is about a princess who finds herself "caught in the middle of a war between the kingdoms. Can she count on her betrothed to take her side? Or will his loyalty to his kingdom come before his loyalty to her?"}

*THE BLACK GOD'S WAR by Moses Siregar III
{Out now}
{Thanks to Netgalley and Cup of God! This one is about gods and war and kings and the fate of two realms.  Oooh, ahhhh!}

{Out Feb. 19, 2013}
{Thanks to Edelweiss and Macmillan Feiwel and Friends! This book reminds me of a series I used to love entitled FRUITS BASKET because it also deals with the possibility of a 13th Zodiac Sign, and I'm immediately intrigued by this.  "What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change—and infuriating the other 12 signs?"}
What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Oh my God. Where do I begin. You got so many awesome books this week. I think this might be one your biggest hauls ever. Enjoy your new books.


    1. I've had bigger weeks before! It's definitely not the biggest haul. I think it just felt that way because I had about three weeks of e-books backed up to include!

  2. Lots of e-books this week! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week!

    My IMM
