In My Mailbox (32)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren.
It's been ages since I've done an In My Mailbox because I haven't been getting any books but it feels like all the books I've been pining for have come out at the end of September and start of October all at once. So I got four book this week:
1. The Name Of The Star by Maureen Johnson
2. Sweetly by Jackson Pearce
3. Daughter Of Smoke And Bone by Laini Taylor
4. Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
I'm so excited for all these books and I can't wait to read them. I've read all of Maureen Johnson's other books so it was a given I was going to pick up The Name of the Star as soon as I could and it sounds fantastically eerie with the reappearance of Jack the Ripper in modern London. I loved Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce so I couldn't wait to pick up Sweetly, her new fairytale retelling of Hansel and Gretel. I've heard nothing but great things about Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I will admit I have entirely got caught up in the hype. Finally there's Silence, the third installment in the Hush, Hush series which I love. As a bonus it is signed! I also noticed how gorgeous the covers all are. A lot of purples and silvers with a dash of red.

LOl over the last few weeks we've both bought the same books! The Name of the Star was really good. It is definitely eerie and very creepy. Hope you enjoy it.

Great books! I enjoyed The Name of the Star - hope you do too! Happy reading!

Thanks for stopping by my IMM :)


I loved In the Name of the Star and I think you got the better cover! It's great compare to the US cover. It's a great paranormal thriller. Hope you love it. I cannot put into words how I felt about The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It was the best book I've ever read. I don't know that anything will ever compare to it for me.

I got Silence, but then I read in Publisher's Weekly that Becca Fitzpatrick signed a fourth book for some unGodly amount. I thought this was the end. So I kinda don't want to read it now. I guess the trilogies have gone to the four book deals.

And I love Jackson Pearce so I bet Sweetly is going to be great. I have that one buried around here somewhere. I truly am buried in books!

Hope you enjoy your books!!!

These are great books!
I think the cover of Sweetly is very creepy, but I think it sounds like a cool story retelling - I'd like to read it.
I love Jack the Ripper stories, and Maureen's writing, so I'm sure I'll read that too.
And DOSAB! So many people seem to love it, I really want to read it!

Here's my IMM this week: The Book Bundle
