In My Mailbox (22)

Yes it's Sunday, and I'm linking up to The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. I had an awesome week for books, and not only that but all of them were won. Also exciting to get not just a ton of books, but not have to spend money. So bring out the books!
In My Mailbox
Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
This is a YA Sherlock Holmes book about the dectetive as a teen. I haven't heard much about it, but maybe because I don't read a lot of mystery. I do enjoy YA and historical fiction in general, so I think I might really enjoy this one.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
This is another YA I don't know much about. But it's about a half-angel and has a gorgeous cover, so it has to be good right?

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I am SO excited for this one. Honestly if the only book I had to share was this one I would feel incredibly lucky. In case you haven't heard about this one yet, it's a dystopian where love is treated as a disease. I've heard amazing things about this one, and expect to fall in love as well.

Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr
This is actually the third in a trilogy, so I'm thinking I should read the other two first? I'm a little reluctent to learn more about what this book itself is about for fear of ruining the first two. So if anyone out there has read these books, please let me know if the first two are worth tracking down.

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
I never actually saw this movie, and I'm still a little disapointed by that. Again, I have high hopes for this and once I finish hope to read the rest of the series.

From Goodreads
You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl by Celia Rivenbark
I've already started this one and so far I'm a fan. It reads a lot like Jen Lancaster, except each chapter is more of a separte amusing tale instead of a complete story. So far I'm definitely enjoying it and happy to have the chance to have read it.

Overall I'm still so excited for my books this week and can't wait to read them all. I'd love to know your thoughts on these (especially those I don't know much about), and want to know what books you've picked up this week.


  1. Bunch of good ones :)

    Here's mine:

  2. Looks like you had a great week. I haven't read any of the books listed. I did read some of the books in the Wicked Lovely series (and I think Darkest Mercy is the last book). The series was good except I didn't like the fact that not every book is based on the main characters rather each book switches between the different characters.

    Enjoy the books :)

  3. I've seen several bloggers with Delirium on their list this week. I am dying to read that one! I hope you enjoy your books.

  4. Superb mailbox! I've heard great things about Unearthly! Enjoy! :]

    Thanks for stopping by my mailbox! Have a great week!
