In My Mailbox #23

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 books I bought this week:

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Fateful by Claudia Gray

The books I got for review this week:

Brightest Kind of Darkness* by P. T. Michelle
Between the Land and the Sea* by Derrolyn Anderson

*from author

I'm soooo incredibly happy with the books I got this week. I already read and reviewed Daughter of Smoke and Bone a while ago, but I needed to get a finished copy of this for my shelf! And it's so gorgeous. I'm almost finished with Lola and the Boy Next Door as well and I'm so in love with it. My review for it will be up next week! I've also heard great things about Fateful, Brightest Kind of Darkness and Between the Land and the Sea and can't wait to start those either. :)

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

This week's reviews:
Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
