In My Mailbox [14]

In My Mailbox (IMM) is weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a chance for people to tell others about the books they received that week.

In My Mailbox [14]

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I received the UK paperback for review. It’s a described as “Romeo and Juliet in a post-apocalyptic setting”.

More Like Her
by Liza Palmer
(My mum borrowed it, which is why it’s not pictured!) “A heartbreaking and romantic story about love, life, friendship and the true importance of chasing your own dreams.”

This Is a Love Story by Jessica Thompson
“Funny and sad, this is the story of two people destined never to come together in the great love affair they crave more than anything else.”

In My Mailbox #14

I also bought a few more e-books in the 12 Days of Kindle promotion:

Unique by Alison Allen-Grey (e-book)
“Dominic discovers that he had an older brother who died before he was born… Their father had Dominic’s dead brother cloned, and Dominic is the result. “

The End Specialist by Drew Magary (e-book)
“Imagine a near future where a cure for aging is discovered and-after much political and moral debate-made available to people worldwide. Immortality, however, comes with its own unique problems-including evil green people, government euthanasia programs, a disturbing new religious cult, and other horrors.”

Girl, Missing by Sophie McKenzie (e-book)
“Lauren has always known she was adopted but when a little research turns up the possibility that she was snatched from an American family as a baby, suddenly Lauren’s life seems like a sham.”

This is Not Forgiveness by Celia Rees (e-book)
“This taut psychological drama is the brilliant new novel from acclaimed Celia Rees.”

The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo (free e-book)

Starters by Lissa Price (e-galley)
“Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie.”

Partials by Dan Wells (e-galley)
“The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population.”

I didn’t receive The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, unlike everyone else, but hopefully it’ll arrive on Monday…

Did you guys receive any great books this week?

  1. I’ve got This is Not Forgiveness and Under the Never Sky too, they both look really good. Hope your FiOS shows up!

    The Cait Files

  2. The cover for This is a Love Story is so pretty! Great books!
    I hope your The Fault in Our Stars comes soon! When you get it, check everywhere (including the back) for the signature, since it might not me on the title page. I pre-ordered mine and they wouldn’t let me cancel, so before I returned it I checked for the signature, which I couldn’t find. It turns out it was there, just hidden. So I looked mighty silly when I told the cashier that there was a ‘signed’ sticker but no signature.

    • Thank you! I’ll keep that in mind before I freak out. I’ll be buying another copy if mine isn’t signed though, which I’ll begrudge doing really after being told for 7 months that ALL COPIES ARE SIGNED 😦

  3. Great set! I keep meaning to read Under the Never Sky – Everyone keeps mentioning it.
