In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie) where you can show off the books that you got last week.


our May 2012 selection for YABC (chosen by Roxy W

Traded for:

I sent Uniquely Moi Books my extra copy of Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I'm about 60 pages in and beginning to think I got the short end of the stick--despite Selection already being made into a TV series before the book is even released. Now if the world were a fairer place Shadow and Bone should at least get a movie deal at minimum; an HBO miniseries would be best. It is freaking brilliant.

I also went to The LA Times Festival of Books today, but I already had all the books for the authors we went to see! :P So I can't really count them.

That's it for me this week! What's in your mailbox?


  1. Haha, I have Shadow and Bone but not The Selection, so maybe I won't be making a similar trade. I'm really excited to read Shadow and Bone, though. Curious to see how the Selection turns out for you. Happy reading, and have a great week!

  2. Nice mailbox! Love the title of Drink Slay Love, as it makes me smile. Hope you enjoy The Selection, as maybe it will get better!

    Here's my IMM.

  3. drink slay love has been on my tbr list for awhile. i hear it's really good. and shadow and bone!! i might actually pre-order a copy, which i rarely do. i have heard mixed things about the selection. let me know what you think.

  4. I wasn't able to get to the LATFOB this year, but I heard it was pretty great. :) And I definitely have to agree with you re: Shadow & Bone. Definitely deserves its own miniseries or something!
