In my Mailbox (46)

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren
For Review:
Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)
Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
This one looks great, I still haven't read Starcrossed though. Should I start it soon?
Hemlock (Hemlock, #1)
Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
OMG, I have been pining for this one for so long! It looks really good, and I'm in the need for a werewolf read!

Destined (Wings, #4)
Destined by Aprilynne Pike
I haven't read any books in the Wings series yet, but thankfully an awesome blogger is letting me borrow them. I enjoy a good faerie book, so I hope to start this series soon.
For Darkness Shows the Stars
For the Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
A world where most technology is banned? Now that's a different take on dystopian novels!
The Hunt
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Already read this one and all I can say is "UGH".
Intangible by J. Meyers
This one looks good, it's an indie read too!

From Bloggers:
The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy
The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy by Nikki Loftin
(Thanks to Jen from I Read Banned Books)
This looks like an awesome MG read, perfect for MG March Madness!
Once (Eve, #2)
Once by Anna Carey
(Thanks to Anna from Literary Exploration)
It started with Eve (read that review here), which I enjoyed. And plus, I LOVE this cover!
Cold Kiss
Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
(Thanks to Jessirae from Words, Pages, and Books)
I tried starting this one  a while ago, but found it too depressing. I wanted to try again though... hopefully I'll like it more this time 'round.

That's what I got this week! What did you get, tell me in the comments! 


  1. I'm very interested to see what you have to say about The Hunt . . .and I thought you already read Starcrossed?

    On COVER news I love For the Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund cover! And Cold Kiss looks like Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. Same type of theme. :)

  2. WOOHOO ONCE! So good :) Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!! I also got For Darkness this week and I'm uber excited to read it! AND DREAMLESS! So jelly, can't wait for that one :) Enjoy all your books!!

  3. The hunt looks very interesting! I hope you'll do a review soon :-)

    1. It was HORRIBLE. Sorry, but this one does not live up to the hype. AT ALL!

  4. I have Intangible too and it looks really good! I really love the cover. I hope you enjoy everything! Here's my IMM!

  5. Starcrossed is really good. You should read it! It has some Twilight similarities, but I still really liked it. I read Wings and it was ok, but I didn't like Spells that much and quit half way through #3. That sucks about The Hunt!

    Thanks for the comment on our IMM!!

  6. I can't wait to get my hands on Cold Kiss, Intangible, and Hemlock. Great books!

  7. OOH, nice! I can't wait to hear what you think of Hemlock! It sounds so good!

    The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy is completely new to me but it looks awesome.

  8. I picked up Cold Kiss of amazon on a special. I wanted to read it from NG but my copy archived. As for The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy, I did a WOW post on it. I hope you enjoy, its sounds fantastic to me. I'm also going to be reading and reviewing Intangible. Enjoy your loot.

  9. SO MANY good books!!!! I'm dying to read FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS!!! Hope you love everything :)

  10. Great haul..i want to read Hemlock and Intangible. I have the ARC of Hunted and am looking forward to it..come ck out my IMM

  11. I really enjoyed Starcrossed and have Dreamless on my shelf waiting for me. Hemlock is one I've been a bit curious about and am anxious for Once! Cold Kiss has been on my WL for awhile. I think I might just watch for it at the library though cause I'll a bit concerned whether I'll like it. Oh, and I can't wait to read For Darkness Shows the Stars! Lots of awesome this week!

  12. I REALLY want Hemlock and For Darkness Shows the Stars! I still need to read Starcrossed then I'll want Dreamless too. I also received the Hunt and can't wait to start it. Great haul!
    My IMM

  13. Great books this week! Hemlock is definitely on my wish list! I love the cover for Darkness SHows the Stars but like Destined I need to read the previous books :D The Sinister Sweetness looks deliciously creepy! I'll have to check that one out more!I bought Cold Kiss recently on sale and I can't wait to read it.

    I hope you love all the rest of your books even if The Hunt didn't suit you :D

  14. OH by the way - TOTALLY IN LOVE with you new layout/design! <3


    1. Thanks it was designed by Lori at Imagination Designs, and I agree, it's awesome!

  15. I really want to read Darkness Shows the Stars. I always cant wait to see your review of The Hunt, I've been pretty excited to read it.

  16. What an awesome mailbox!!! I got Dreamless, too, this week! I'm two books in to the Wings series, but I'm already looking forward to Destined. The Sinister Sweetness sounds fun---OOh, MG March Madness, what is that?? Sounds like something I need to participate in! :D

    Not sure how I've never found your blog before! New follower! :)

  17. OMG For Darkness Shows the Stars, I'm so jealous :) I hope you'll enjoy it!!!

  18. Wonderful mailbox Benji! And I already told you that I love your new blog design! <3

    So lucky you got Dreamless, Hemlock and For Darkness Shows the Stars. I've been dying to read all three! By your reaction to The Hunt, I'm guessing you didn't like it much! LOL. Good thing you mention it because now I'm considering not to get it. But I do agree with you, Intangible looks really good. I like the cover.

    I hope you enjoy Cold Kiss a second time around! Thanks for the shout out :) Happy Reading Benji. I hope you love all the books you got. Well, besides The Hunt! LOL. Oh, btw, I can't wait for your Starcrossed review. I really loved that one so I want to know what you think along with Dreamless too :)

    My IMM

    Please love these books like they were mine.

  21. Great books this week! I can't wait to see what happens to Eve in Once. For the Darkness shows the Stars sounds great..I think this will go on my TBR!
