I’ll still be doing In My Mailbox, BUT I’ll also have a weekly roundup post along with it. So. Check out the books I got in the mail this week, and see what happened at IceyBooks this week too!

PULSE by Patrick Carman – I am pretty excited for this one
STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD by Jane Nickerson – I AM STOKED for this one
SPLINTERED by A.G. Howard – AND THIS ONE TOO. I am ALL about Alice in Wonderland. And it came with the shiny gold key!

Thanks to HarperTeen and RandomHouse!

Here’s what you missed last week:

I revealed the cover for THE PATH OF NAMES by Ari Goelman

Asma posted the releases of December 11th

Waiting on Wednesday – A TRICK OF THE LIGHT which sounds pretty emotional.
I revealed the cover of AFTER EDEN by Helen Douglas who’s giving away a pre-order of her book

What’s Next? – KIKI STRIKE won
I reviewed THE EVOLUTION OF MARA DYER. Two words: Deliciously Dark.

I answered the most-asked question: How do you get all those books? as well as give you a list of who to contact when requesting books.

Asma reviews LULLABY in which she concludes everyone is a robot.

    I'm in love with the sounds of each of these books! Does the key do anything? That would be insanely awesome. 8)
