In My Mailbox

It's time for In My Mailbox, a weekly meme by The Story Siren!

I'm glad to announce that my Netgalley slump is officially over! Massive thanks to Macmillian Children's Books for accepting me for three of their upcoming releases <3. Also, Grave Mercy was auto-approved for every Netgalley member, and I definitely jumped on the opportunity! I'm very excited about this week's mailbox (:

Click on the cover to go to the Goodreads page.



For Review: 


Grave Mercy has intrigue, nuns, crossbows and assassins. What more can you ask for in one book? I'm very excited to read this one.


I love how this book looks kind of retro. It's about a girl who has lost her mother and wants to discover how she really died. Her father has a detective agency. It all sounds pretty awesome.


I have yet to read a mermaid book, but Monstrous Beauty sounds like a great story. And I like the cover, I admit it.


I love the tagline of Monument 14: "Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong.". I love dystopians and post-apocalyptics so I'm hoping this will be a good read. This is another debut author and so far the debuts I've read this year have been excellent.




Fire Baptized sounds like a promising urban-fantasy. Even though I've been kind of neglecting my UF series lately, I'm looking forward to dive into a book promising vampires, shifters and fairies all in one book!


So, that's it for me! What do you have in your mailbox this week? Leave a comment! (:

I downloaded Grave Mercy too this week :) I'm really looking forward to reading it.

I've never heard of The Girl is Trouble before, but you're right - the retro cover thing is awesome!

Have a great week.
