In My Mailbox #12

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a great way to showcase the books you've gotten over the week, whether they are bought, borrowed or free.

Here's what is in my mailbox this week...

From the Library:

Something Like Fate - Susane Colasanti

Blood Red Road - Moira Young
Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma
The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder
Ordinary Beauty - Laura Wiess
He's So Not Worth It - Kieran Scott
All the Things You Are - Courtney Sheinmel

For Review:

She Smells the Dead | Spirit Storm
by E.J. Stevens

Still sticking to my book buying ban, and the book I got from the library was one that was on hold. So I'm still doing good! I couldn't resist the Galley Grab books though. BLOOD RED ROAD!!

As many of you know, some deadly storms and tornadoes hit the South on Wednesday of this week. Thankfully I was spared, but the destruction is all around me. (TN, AL, GA, MS, AK)  It's heartbreaking and these states need all the help they can get. If you would like to help, please check out the
American Red Cross Donation Page.

You can also donate to the Red Cross Disaster Relief by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to help our disaster relief activities across U.S. Thank you!!

So what's in your mailbox this week?? Leave a comment with you link so I can check out your awesome posts!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  3. I always forget to put what I download from S&S Galley Grab and Netgalley.

  4. I got Red Blood Road & Forbidden too! (from Galley Grab!)

  5. you've got so many great books this week! happy reading!

  6. I read Forbidden close to a year ago. The writing is great, but it will mess with your mind. You go into it with your views on what's right and wrong and she just turns them around. I still think about it to this day. Can't wait to see what you think about it.

    Glad you're OK. It's scary to think that things like this are happening more and more frequently.

  7. Galley Grab had some totally awesome books this month! I can't wait to start reading them. I haven't picked out all the ones that I plan on getting just yet :) Happy reading!

  8. Galley Grab!! <3 I can't wait to read Blood Red Road as well! And He's So Not Worth It!!

    Here's my IMM!

    The storms are just devastating. Glad you're all right though!

  9. I also got Blood Red Road and am so excited to read it! Looking forward to your thoughts on that and Something Like Fate.

  10. I love the sound of all the books you've received :D Hope you enjoy them!

  11. Yay, for the S&S galleygrab, I got a load from there too, lol
    I SO need to stop downloading free books >.<

  16. Great books this week. I got a lot of the same book from the S&S GG. Not Blood Red Road though - maybe I should go download it.
    Happy reading.

  17. Great books! I can't wait to read Blood Red Road and The Day Before. I didn't know you lived down that way. I'm glad you are okay. Yes, the devastation is awful! I can't believe how big the tornado was.

    On a brighter note...I hope you enjoy your books :)

  18. Great mailbox this week! You've got a lot of cool books! I love the cover for She Smells the Dead, it's creepy and mysterious, yet engaging.
