In My Mailbox (#2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share their books which they have recently received.

This week’s mailbox was quite a small one, but I still got some great books.

Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti
Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Young Readers Group. I have been forever meaning to pick up a book by Susane Colasanti, but never got around to it. So I was super excited when I saw one of her books up on NetGalley. I really want to start this as soon as possible, it’s been glaring at me from my kindle for the past week, but I really should get my other galleys out of the way first.

Won; Red Glove by Holly Black
Thank you Donna and Jess at Book Passion For Life for hosting this giveaway. A lot of my friends on Goodreads have thoroughly enjoyed this series. And I’ve had the first book for a while now, so I should really get a wriggle on. And this cover I prefer much more than the other versions.

Won; Sean Griswold's Head by

Gifted: The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
A while ago I gave my friend a copy of the Duff, my friend is the complete opposite to me. I have a certain OCD with my books, I normally like to keep them in pristine condition and cracked spines make me so mad! As I still had to read it, and my friend loved it so much (she’d read it through several times, so it was a bit tatty and battered!) and knowing me so well she brought me a brand new copy! And kept my old one!

Gifted: My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent.
This is a book on my 100+ books I have every intention of reading list (so far I have read two books off my list which you can see here.) My friend has been endlessly talking about this series and how amazing it is. I think she got quite sick with the fact that I still haven’t read it yet. So by buying me a copy she’s hoping that this will make me start it sooner (I promised her I would try...)

Won; bookmarks, thank you Jill Hathaway. 
I love collecting bookmarks, what was special about these bookmarks was that they were signed by three different authors; Jill Hathaway, Jessica Spotswood, and Megan Miranda. I’m not sure if you can see them properly in the picture, sorry if it’s a bit blurry.

So what did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. I thought Sean Griswold's Head was really cute. Hope you like it!


  2. Your IMM this week has just reminded me to finish Soul Screamers series. I've only read the first book... Enjoy your books! :)

    Here's what I got.

  3. Awesome week Jas and I'm so glad Red Glove arrived. Hope you enjoy it! Donna xoxo

  4. The Soul Screamers series is a pretty good one. Not all of the books have been amazing for me, but most were really great reads! I hope you'll love it too. :) I also really want to read The Duff. I keep hearing amazing things about that book. Great IMM, Jasprit!

  5. Ooh, Keep Holding On! The cover is very cute! <3 I heard amazing thing about Sean Griswold's Head too, though my copy has different cover. :) I haven't read The Soul Screamers series yet but I heard it's awesome! Happy reading, Jasprit! :)

    Drop by on my mailbox? :)

  6. I read My Soul to Take a month or so ago and I really enjoyed it! Hope you do too. =)

  7. Ooooo you got some great ones this week Jasprit! I've heard nothing abut awesome things about the Holly Black series, I can't wait to read those:)I really enjoyed The DUFF as well, can't wait to see what you think!

  8. Ooh Red Glove! I love that series I'm looking forward to reading Black Heart soon! I've only read My Soul to Take but the rest of that series are on MY 100+ books I have every intention of reading list (although I increased mine to 200 because I was trying to be ambitious. I'm thinking that was a bad idea hahaha)

    Thanks for stopping by Jasprit! :D

  9. I have When It Happens by Susane Colasanti on the way. I really hope I like it, it's for review, but I have a feeling I might.
    I just know you'll love Red Glove. Can't wait to read your review.

  10. Love, love, love Sean Griswold's Head! :) I hope you will too. Ohh I must request that new Colasanti novel on Net Galley. Thanks for the heads up, J!

  11. I'm with Joy, I LOVED Sean Griswold's Head, I think you'll really like it, very cute! I'm really looking forward to When It Happens. It looks soooo good. I'll have to check out Holly Black's title. I loved her fey series & have her Curse Workers series that I need to read now that the 3rd came out (yay! no waiting!).

    Nice haul Jasprit. :)

  12. Wow, awesome haul this week! I haven't read the Soul Screamers series yet, but I've heard it's really good :) The Duff sounds really interesting as well:) I hope you enjoy all your goodies<3

  13. Great book haul this week! I love the Soul Screamers series . . . just adore the author and I also loved The Duff . . . Kody is a great author! Same goes with Holly Black's Red Glove . . . just love her Curse Worker series.

  14. "100+ books I have every intention of reading list..." <-- Haha so funny! (My list is miles long.) But your friend is 100% right because the Soul Screamers series is one of my favourites of all time! The series starts out pretty great, but by the time you get to If I Die (the latest one)? SO EPIC! I might be whispering in your ear to start getting to this series soon x)

    Awesome mailbox this week, Jasprit! Besides me fangirling over Rachel Vincent's books, the Curse Workers series is really cool too! I hope you enjoy all of your books! :) <3

  15. Some great reads. I have been trying to read Soul Screamers as well, made it through book one and haven't found time for any more. I also want to read Duff. You will have to post some pics of your book mark collection sometime. Have a great week, Jasprit.

  16. Soul to take is definately also one of the book series I really want to read! I love when it happens by susanne, it's amazing! Enjoy your awesome books!
