In My Mailbox [8]

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share books that we've received.

Today is a milestone for my blog, because...*dromroll*...I received my first review copy!

It's a self-published/indie book by Marlee Morgan, called Soujon's Journey. I can't really tell from the summary, but I think it's a fantasy.

Also, earlier this week I was at Borders, and I found Hush, Hush on the bargain shelf! I haven't read it yet, but I've heard great things.

Now on to the library horde.

Leviathan is the first in a steampunk trilogy by Scott Westerfeld. I read and really liked the first two books of his Uglies series, and I love any sci-fi, whether it's dystopia, space opera or steampunk!

As You Wish is Jackson Pearce's debut novel, which I'm reading right now. It's very different from Sisters Red, but I like it so far!

Assassin is a historical fiction about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It looks really good!

is a re-telling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I've been on hold for it for the past two months, and I'm really excited to read it!!!


  1. You've got some great books there. I've been searching out As You Wish but haven't been able to find a copy locally. Hope you enjoy them all :)

  2. Fab set! I can't wait to read Entwined.

  3. I feel like I see the cover for LEVIATHAN everywhere! I'm going to check back to see what you thought about it. I was so-so on UGLIES/PRETTIES, but I'm willing to give him another shot.

    Yay for ENTWINED! I'm excited for this one, too!

  4. I love Scott Westerfeld! I bet Leviathan is good!

  5. Hi Emily!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day to comment on my IMM- I am returning the favor ;)

    I have also heard some pretty amazing things about Hush Hush and hope to add it to my TBR list as soon as it gets a little shorter! Also, I have only heard great reviews for Scott Westerfeld, and one of the teen librarians where I work raves about his writing-- definitely getting to him eventually too. Entiwined looks so pretty, and I meant to pick it up this past week but I have my hands full right now but I hope you enjoy reading it :)

    Have a great week!
