In My Mailbox #45


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 interesting posts:

My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent (Review)
My Enchanted Life by Laura Eno (Review)

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (Cover Comparisons)
Beta by Rachel Cohn (Waiting on Wednesday)

Gifted / Won:


A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

 I received A Need So Beautiful as a RAK gift from Andrea from The Busy Bibliophile and the e-mail with the Kindle-gift was such a huge but wonderful surprise, I couldn't really believe it at first. Thank you so much, Andrea!

I won Curse of Ancient Shadows from Celine and Vicky as part of the first challenge for the Review Copy Cleanup.


For review:


Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Jaguar Sun by Marthe Bourke

Thanks to Random House, Macmillan & NetGalley and Kismet Book Touring.




All of these are e-books, so no pictures today. And even though I say it every week, I'm very excited for all of these again. I'll definitely have to make room in my reading schedule for A Need So Beautiful soon, because I've been dying to read it for the longest time and I am soooo grateful for this RAK! I'm also very happy about both NetGalley titles I got since they both sound like very unique and interesting reads - definitely looking forward to start them soon.

I've now joined LINKY FOLLOWERS and you can follow Fictional Distraction via that one now, too. The widget is in the sidebar underneath the GFC widget. :)

What did you get in your mailbox?

  8. Awesome mailbox! I keep hearing awesome things about A Need So Beautiful. Can't wait to read your review, I hope you'll like the book! I like Demon Lexicon series but I'm not a fan of the latest book in the series, so I haven't requested Unspoken yet. I hope that it's amazing read still! Happy reading! :)
