In My Mailbox #18

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives bloggers the chance to appreciate the books they got last week and to meet new people.

The book I bought this week:

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles

The e-books I won this week:

Blood Will Tell by Samantha Young
Blood Past by Samantha Young
huge thanks to Samantha Young and Rachel from fiktshun

The books I got for review this week:

Virtuosity* by Jessica Martinez
The Pledge* by Kimberly Derting
Past Perfect* by Leila Sales

Swear* by Nina Malkin
Graffiti Moon** by Cath Crowley
The Demon Lover** by Juliet Dark

* via Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab
** via NetGalley and Random House

While The Pledge wasn't in this month's newsletter, the link to it was all over Twitter. But before you ask me for it, I have to admit that I didn't save it or anything and I honestly have no idea who tweeted it. Sorry!
I'm really looking forward to read all those novels - they sound quite fantastic. But my to-read pile is growing and growing, so I hope I'll have enough time to get to them soon.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

P.s.: Check out my 400 followers giveaway to win an ARC of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
