In My Mailbox (#8)!


Here is a confession. Before I wrote the title for this post, I needed to check my blog's archive first. 'Waittt... what edition of IMM is it?' Yes, I'm ashamed to tell you this: I forgot the number because I skipped so many weeks. Bad, bad Hilda!

This is not an excuse, but I just finished my mid term test this week. You know... finally. *dramatic music on cue* And yes, I told you that I have to study for my midterm since (gasp!) one month ago. Well, blame it on my lecturers and their so-called tight schedules. I'm pleased to tell you that I have came back from the study torture battlefield now, all safe and sound. :)

What do I have in my mailbox in the past four weeks now? Well, let's see.... 

(Click the book cover to bring you to the Goodreads link!)






Enormous, special thanks to Netgalley, publishers, and authors for the awesome books! ♥

I can't wait to start reading Storm! The only thing that's better than a hot guy is FIVE hot guys together in a book. I think the Elvis Presley's hair in Dark Kiss is hilarious. I hope I'll get blown away by The Immortal Rules! The Glimpse has such amazing premise and really good cover. Hopefully the cover is not a misleading case!

I have finished reading Forbidden (my review).Oh well, I don't know what to say. It's a very hard book to describe, especially with the difficult topic. I love the mention of 80's in Retro Geeks. They said The Book of Blood and Shadow is The DaVinci Code for YA. Well, I'm not a big fan of DaVinci Code but it does intrigue me. The cover for the Prophecy of the Sisters is my Indonesian edition's cover. Isn't it pretty? ;) 

I'm going to do a comeback giveaway next week, so stay alert! :) 

What is on your mailbox this week? Don't hesitate to leave the link! :)

  6. OMG They ALL look so amazing! *eyes Storm* *dies*

    I also have The Glimpse. Sounds great, and the cover is so simple yet beautiful. You got Take a Bow! Gosh, I've wanted to read this one forever. I read it was amazing. Delirium was okay for me, but I hope you love it as much as everyone else did (yay for me and my dislike of dystopia LOL). Getting Over Garrett seems like a very cute read, too.

    So many books, Hilda! I hope you enjoy each and every one of them <3

  28. LOL - I always have to check what number IMM I'm on, because I'll go a month without doing one. And at least your midterms are finished - you can now breathe! :)

    Really great books you got!

  29. I just read Forbidden recently and it is quite haunting and disturbing but the writing is excellent. Enjoy! Happy Reading!

  32. LOL HILDA! <3 It's okay, because I can't even remember the number of times I've told you that you're absolutely adorable (and I visit your blog almost every single day)! I usually try to do an IMM every week (except this one since I was at my grandma's and couldn't really take pictures of my books there haha), but I still check back to see what number I'm at! x)

    But yaaaay for Take a Bow! I love love LOVED that book so I really hope you do too :) And you're so lucky that you have Storm! I've been squealing about that book so much that I feel like everyone is probably sick of me by now haha... and that will be renewed as soon as you write your review for it! *beams*

    Amazing mailbox this week, Hilda! I hope you have an awesome day! :) <3

  34. Wow! that's a really great haul of books. Some of those covers are just amazing. I loved your comment about 5 hots guys in a book being better than 1! I couldn't agree with you more :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. *sigh* I see so many amazing books here. Some of them I have in my mailbox too so I'm not too jealous, just a little bit. I really want Glimpse and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a copy of Want either.
    Great mailbox!

  36. Girl, I totally feel you when it comes to school being a battlefield. This is my last week of class and then finals are next week and I feel like I am losing my mind already! Between studying, writing papers, doing projects, and getting ready to move out of my dorm, I don’t know when I will have time to blog!
    The Immortal Rules looks so good, I just won a copy of it through a giveaway and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I’m also loving the cover of Dark Kiss, Elvis hair and all! Great Mailbox, Hilda! :)
