In My Mailbox #25

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi @ The Story Siren. All links go to the Book Depository. 

I have been really lazy in 2012 and this is the first time I've bothered to do an IMM this year. The novelty wore off of a lot of blogging memes, but I'm ready to make the effort again. What I've felt really guilty about is that I haven't been calling attention to the books I've received via NetGalley and I feel like announcing them is part of the deal. So this week's IMM is a special NetGalley edition, where I shine a spotlight on the books I've received in the past few months (and haven't already reviewed).

From NetGalley:

This is the fourth book in the Bard Academy series. I've only read the first, but have copies of all the others and they are very quick, fluffy reads, so I won't have any problem whizzing through them all in a weekend.

I requested this book without realising it was a sequel, which is a shame, as I love epic fantasy and wanted to read this one straightaway. However, I have now managed to find a copy of the first book, The Sworn, at my local library and am looking forward to trying these books.

This is due to be published next month. I've been wanting to read Davis' book Mare's War, so when Happy Families was available on NetGalley, I saw it as a good way to try the author's work.

Confession: I haven't read The Demon's Lexicon series. I really want to; I've heard nothing but good things, but I haven't as yet. However, I follow Brennan on Twitter and she's hilarious; I really like her personality (and her commentary on The Vampire Diaries!) so I'm confident I will like her books, too. Unspoken isn't out until September, so I'm planning to squeeze in reading The Demon's Lexicon trilogy before then.
I was a huge, huge fan of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants books and they really remind me of a particular time in my life. I'm actually really nervous about this book, which reunites the characters ten years later, as I don't want to be disappointed and I've stayed away from reviews so I'm not influenced by other opinions and can make up my own mind.


  1. I still haven't read Sisterhood Everlasting. I really loved the pants books back when I read them, and I'm excited to get back to the characters in a more grown up book.

    1. Same here. I just hope that wherever they end up feels true to the characters I know.

  2. I'm so excited for Unspoken and Happy Families.

    Hope you like all of your new reads :-)

  3. Looks like you have a nice haul for this week!

    Happy reading,

  4. Wow, Unspoken looks fabulous!

    Happy Reading!
