In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox by The Story Siren
In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren in which you share the books you added to your collection in the past week.

Book cover of The Iron King by Julie Kagawa Book cover of The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth Book cover of On the Day I Died by Candace Flemming

From the library:
The Iron King - Julia Kagawa
Since finishing the Wicked Lovely series, I feel like it's time to dive into another highly touted fairy series, and that would be the Iron Fey.
I've heard fantastic things about this LGBT contemp.  It takes place in Miles City, not too far from my own home stomping grounds of Wyoming, and I'm excited to read about Cameron's experience as a lesbian in small town Montana. 

For review via NetGalley:
On the Day I Died - Candace Flemming
A collection of ten ghost stories taking place in a graveyard outside Chicago from the 1860s to today.  Each story narrates a character's last day, ending in their death.
Rebel McKenzie - Candice Ransom
A Middle Grade story of a paleontology nerd who enters a beauty pageant to earn the money she needs to pay for her summer dig.  My original major in college was geosciences, and changed to archaeology...so yeah, of course I love 12 year old paleontology nerds!
Struck - Jennifer Bosworth
An apocalypse tale with an X-Men like twist?  Sign me up, this book seems freakin' awesome.
The Raft - S.A. Bodeen
I loooooove survival books, and this one seems like it'll be a more Hatchet spin on a Life of Pi situation.  I can't wait!

  7. The Rebel McKenzie cover is so cute! I read The Iron King a while ago and wasn't a big fan but since joining the blogging world I've decided to give them another try. I look forward to hearing what you think about them!


Share your thoughts, I love to hear them!
