In My Mailbox #16

Posted December 18, 2011 by Kara in In My Mailbox / 5 Comments

In my mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren every Sunday to showcase the books that we got for review or purchased throughout the week. I haven’t done an IMM in a few weeks because I haven’t gotten any books in the mail but one. I am not accepting any indie requests for review right now either, so expect this meme to be really slow for me in the upcoming weeks. The book buying ban is over, but I’m not buying any books right now until I get caught up on some of the ones I already own. And believe me, there are a lot.

I get most of my review books through the internet these days, and I have gotten a few from NetGalley over the last couple of weeks. The reason I am cutting down on review books is because I have fallen insanely behind and I have a TON of editing projects coming up over the next couple of months and I am really trying as hard as I can to manage my workload. I did accept two indie books for review a couple of weeks ago, so look for those below, but until I get caught up on all the indie books I have, I will not be accepting anymore.

There is one exception to that rule. IF I have worked with you before and you have a new book coming out during this time, I will accept your review request again. I will notify everyone via this blog and my review policy page when I am open for requests again. And I’m sorry guys. I know how much this sucks, but I am under a ton of stress right now and I need to start taking care of myself and spending more time with my family. They miss me.

So, let’s get started! Over the last couple of weeks, I got:

From M.R. Mathias:

~The Confliction by M.R. Mathias

From B. Jane Lawson:

~To the Cliffside by B. Jane Lawson

From Alyson Miers:

~Charlinder’s Walk by Alyson Miers
From LibraryThing and Random House:

From NetGalley and Flux:

~Katana by Cole Gibsen

From NetGalley and HarperCollins: 

~Slide by Jill Hathaway

From NetGalley and Macmillan:

~After the Snow by S.D. Crockett

From NetGalley and Random House:

~The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman

From NetGalley and ABRAMS:

~Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
~The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry

I think the publishers have figured out by now that I read fast. I know it’s a lot, but that’s divided over three weeks. So when you look at it that way, it’s really not that many. I’m currently reading Fracture by Megan Miranda, which I gotta be honest, I’m not really enjoying. I just finished Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which I loved. The review for that should be coming tomorrow. 

Links for the books go to Goodreads, and I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures for you, but it takes forever to look those up, and I need to get straight to work. I have a looming deadline. 

Also, if you don’t know by now, I am taking a twitter break. I still will tweet links to my blog posts and anything else I find interesting, but I won’t be on there to chat for at least a week. I’m getting caught up on everything, AND I’m moving to a new apartment. Thanks for sticking with me. You guys are the best.
