In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is weekly feature hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, and if you haven't heard of it before I don't believe you the point is to highlight books we've received over the past week. So, here goes:

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I'm very excited to read this one! It sounds adorable. I like the ARC cover, but I think they're using the regular US cover for the final copies.

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lisa McBride
I'd heard praise for this one around, and it was ridiculously cheap at Basement Books, so what else would I do but buy it?

Matter of Magic by Patricia C. Wrede
This one also came from Basement Books. I hadn't heard much about it, but again, it was really cheap.

The Dark And Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
And one more from Basement Books. I've already read The Dark And Hollow Places, and I loved it, and it's nice to have a copy now.

Legend by Marie Lu
A surprise from Penguin! I've begun this already (I think you can see my bookmark in the photo), and I'm enjoying it very much so far. I'm not sure whatever happened to the Australian cover, but I prefer this one anyway.

Crossed by Ally Condie
This came with Legend from Penguin. I think I'll begin it soon, but with tempered expectations, since I wasn't overly impressed with Matched. The Australian edition cover is a little different. I really like that they did away with some of the scattering shards, so at a glance, it doesn't look like Cassia's flipping off the Society anymore.


Equinox by Lara Morgan
Thanks to Walker Books for this on.! I'm hosting an interview here with Lara in a couple of days for the blog tour for the release of this one. I'm just about to leave for the library to get the book before this one, Genesis.

Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore
I began reading this as soon as it arrived. I really liked Jaclyn's first book, Magic Under Glass, and I really liked Between the Sea and Sky as well. Thank you Bloomsbury!

Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
This one arrived as a surprise from Random House, in a lovely "happy paranormal christmas" package.

So what did you guys get this week?
