In My Mailbox (10)

I love that I've gotten more into book blogging lately. Except the biggest negative about it is that I keep hearing about all the amazing books I want to read. I pretty much avoid trips to the bookstore because once I'm there there's no telling how many books I'll pick up. And this week that happened. This week the book I'm sharing for The Story Siren's In My Mailbox are books I purchased on my most recent trip to the bookstore.
In My Mailbox
Hex Hall by Rachael Hawkins
This book, and its sequel Demonglass, have been all over the blogs lately. For those who haven't seen it around, it's kind of a teen girl version of Harry Potter. I was so excited to read this one that I've actually already finished it! (Review to come in the next few days or so.)

Roses by Leila Meacham
I've heard nothing but great things about this one. I believe it's a historical fiction type book about Texas, but that could be completely wrong. But from what I've heard, I have a feeling I'm going to feel in love with it.

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
Another one I've heard amazing things about, but yet can't really tell you the basic plot line. Again it may take place during the Civil War, but even if that's completely off I'm still excited to read it!

Have you had a major book splurge lately? And what's in your mailbox this week?


  1. I've been dying to read both Hex Hall and The Postmistress! They are on my list of to-reads this summer! Nice IMM! Happy Reading :)

  2. Girl, with as much book buying as you do, you need to get a Kindle!

  3. I have not been doing as much reading lately.... So I am plugging away at this book, "the Blue Orchard' which is so-so. Kind of ready to be done with it, actually! I am reading it for a book club and when I finish it, I will go back to reading "The Shadow of the Wind" which I was really liking..

  4. I just finished Demonglass, the sequel to Hex Hall! It was good, although many time I thought about putting it down because I hate stuff about demons (religious reasons) but I didn't and I'm glad I didn't. It wasn't scary demon, like Paranormal Activity so that's why I didn't feel bad.
    YA is so much fun to read sometimes! It makes me feel like a high schooler again. :)

  5. WOW, the cover for Roses is gorgeous! The Post mistress as well.

    I still have to read Hex Hall too. Like you said, it's all over the place :-)

  6. I hope you love Hex Hall- I loved it myself :) And the cover for Roses looks so pretty!

    Thanks for visiting my IMM, I am now following you :)
