In My Mailbox (64) — Alchemy and No Return

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie! It features a list of what books you have received over the previous week, either for review, from the library, or from the bookstore.

For Review:
The Girls of No Return by Erin Saldin
The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams

Gifted by Katie from Katie’s Book Blog:
Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
The Candidates by Inara Scott

Thanks to Scholastic, Simon and Schuster, and Katie! 
So… what was in your mailbox this week?

    Awesome mailbox! I really want to read Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld (and the rest of that series) sometime. He's such a good writer!

    So jealous of The Alchemy of Forever. ;) I've heard good things about it.
