In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a meme started and hosted by The Story Siren



This is a combination of last week's and this week's In My Mailbox. I attended a Sales Rep 'Night' for indie bookstores in the Twin Cities where Random House sales reps pitched us their top selling books and let us take them home for free! Unfortunately, it was a bit of a war to get to the book table and I didn't get to snag many but I did take home some pretty interesting ones I wouldn't have picked up otherwise!




In the actual mail
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Witch World by Christopher Pike
Thank you Simon and Schuster!!!
(we also received a box of Scholastic and Harper books that I'm dispersing to other reviewers and sharing with you later!)

At the Sales Rep Night
Child of Vengeance by David Kirk*
The Devil in Silver by Victor La Valle (creep-y!!!)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Graphic Novel

*this book is adult, along with all the others I took home from the sales reps, but this one they thought should actually be young adult and appeal to older boys

Bought 
Beauty by Lauren Conrad*


That's all for me this week! What are you reading??

Happy reading!
Rachel

  3. I haven't read a Christopher Pike book since Falling (which I loved! even though I think my local library mis-categorized it as YA when it should be Adult,) I've been meaning to try out his other works (I did try his Alosha series, but the first book didn't impress me at all,) and Witch World came just in time! I would like to give me another try.

    I have the Evolution of Mara Dyer on hold at the library, I'm hoping to read the first two books back to back since I already have book one!

    And I see you grabbed some very exotic (exotic just because I haven't heard of them) books from the Sales Rep Night! I look forward to hearing what you think of them!

    Happy Reading!

    1. I haven't read any Christopher Pike books, but they are so popular. I'm excited for these adult books since i rarely read them. The Devil in Silver seems like a horror movie, which makes me really want to read it!
      Definitely let us know what you think of The Evolution of Mara Dyer!!!
