In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (27)

In My Mailbox is a posting idea run by Kristi at The Story Siren (read all about it here: In My Mailbox) for bloggers to share the books they've gotten that week to help publicize as many titles as possible. It's a little preview on what book reviews to anticipate along with a way to build excitement about new titles coming out. All titles link to goodreads so you can add books to your "to-read" list.



WON
AU REVOIR, CRAZY EUROPEAN CHICK (ARC) by Joe Schreiber
This one's coming out in October and it sounds like it will be an action-packed, funny, quick read. Probably a good one to promote to boys-billed as Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita.

Won this from Dawn Metcalf, author of LUMINOUS (released July 7th), from a contest on her blog. She sent along lots of fun swag with the book - bookmarks (signed ones are on the right) and two fun pins from Gae Polisner's THE PULL OF GRAVITY (a May debut author release this year) another book I'm anxious to read because I've heard lots of positive reviews of it.
Thanks Dawn!



A LONG, LONG SLEEP (ARC) by Anna Sheehan
This is a debut author book releasing on August 9th. It's another dystopian, so I'm really interested to read it. Won from a giveaway hosted by Meredith over at Mint Tea and a Good Book.





BORROWED
I did a swap loan with the lovely @TaraMQ of www.fictionfolio.com who had some great BEA books she was willing to loan out in exchange for borrowing my ARCs of Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer and Shine by Lauren Myracle. I love the book blogging community sharing the love of books! :)


DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE (ARC) by Laini Taylor
This book is coming September 27th and I've heard nothing but fabulous things about it, so I'm looking forward to getting into this new fantasy book.



SHATTER ME (ARC) by Tahereh Mafi
This is another one that everyone was talking about after BEA and the cover was revealed this week so the book blogs and twitter (and MTV!) were all abuzz on Thursday. So glad I'm getting to read it early as you know I love a good dystopian! Releases November 15th.


Thank you so much Tara!
