In My Mailbox & Stacking the Shelves (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi of The Story Siren, where bloggers share the contents of their mailbox - books bought, borrowed, received - and get to know other blogs.


Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
I don't normally get this many books, but the last two weeks felt like Christmas. With a couple of ARCs in the mail and some discount coupons to spend, I couldn't pass up these books (and ebooks).
Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)   Rebel Heart (Dust Lands, #2)
Blood Red Road (paperback) by Moira Young
Rebel Heart (ARC) by Moira Young
Blood Red Road was one of my favorite reads of 2011. Rebel Heart was one of my most anticipated reads for this year. Aren't the covers beautiful next to each other? I will be posting my review very soon.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)   Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)

The Evolution of Mara Dyer (ARC) by Michelle Hodkin
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was another of my favorite reads of 2011. Evolution was amazing (see my REVIEW HERE). Sweet Evil has been highly recommended by friends, and my Starbooks friend Kim let me borrow her copy. Looking forward to reading it!
Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)   Flesh and Bone (Benny Imura, #3)
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Flesh & Bone by Jonathan Maberry
Being the huge Alice in Wonderland fan that I am, I couldn't pass up Alice in Zombieland. I'm excited! I also plan to start the Rot & Ruin series soon (hopefully). Flesh & Bone is the third book.
Toxic (Denazen, #2)   Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2)

Toxic by Jus Accardo
Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover
Touch was a great read last year, so I used my teacher discount a grabbed a copy of Toxic this week. I read both Slammed and Point of Retreat at the beginning of the year and LOVED them! I have them on my kindle. Then I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of Slammed from Ms. Hoover herself. Well, it looked so sad on my bookshelf without it's friend, so I had to grab a copy of PoR so they could be reunited.

 Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)   The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)
Throne of Glass by Sarah L. Maas
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
I've heard so many great things about Throne of Glass, and it was such a great deal on Amazon (check out the link), so I had to grab a copy. I loved the Iron Fey series, so of course The Immortal Rules by Ms. Kagawa must be read.
 A Mutiny in Time (Infinity Ring #1)
The Infinity Ring: A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner
I am currently finishing The Maze Runner series, which is awesome. Mr. Dashner will be (somewhat) in our area for a book signing this week for this newest book of his, and the start of this new series The Infinity Ring. Well, I grabbed a copy, because I'm sure my boys will love it and I can't wait for us to meet him.
I got a few ebooks as well...
