In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie. 


Unearthly by Cynthia Hand from The Book Depository: I am so excited to read this, I've read some really great reviews and can't wait to see what all the fuss is about.
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John: This sounds like such a great read, I love a book with anything to do with music, so this is right up my alley.
Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph: This one sounds like quite an inspiring read, so I'm interested to see if the book can deliver on its promising premise.

For Review:

Wither by Lauren DeStefano (from S&S galley grab): I've been dying to read Wither for ages, so I screamed when I saw that I could get it from S&S. I'll be starting this one tonight.
Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell  (from S&S galley grab): Sounds like a quick, breezy read that won't involve too much thinking - we all need to read one of them every so often, right?
Stay by Deb Caletti (from S&S galley grab): This sounds like a really thought-provoking book about the dangers of an overly controlling boyfriend. I love contemps with a bit of grit and this sounds like just what I'm looking for.
The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter (from NetGalley): Modern day Greek Gods? Check. Making a bargain with Hades? Check. Me already in love with this book? Check. Overall, so excited to read this.
