In My Mailbox #44

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.

Last week's reviews:

The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis
Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

The books I bought:

Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler (my review)
Evernight by Claudia Gray (for Kindle)

The books I received for review:

The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland
Beckoning Light by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Perilous Light by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis
Blood Rites by Quinn Loftis
Clockwise by Elle Strauss

Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin + Penguin, Alyssa Rose Ivy, Quinn Loftis and Elle Strauss.

Again, this week was really awesome! So happy about these books that I can't wait to start reading. I already read Where It Began and absolutely loved it. Clockwise actually had been in my mailbox a week earlier, but somehow I forgot to include it last week - sorry about that! 

What did you get in your mailbox?
