In My Mailbox #8

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which bloggers are able to show off what books they received. If you want to learn more, you can read about it here.

You Have Seven Messages by Stewart Lewis

Hades by Alexandra Adornetto
Abandon by Meg Cabot

I'm really excited to read Abandon. I've seen both negative and positive reviews about it, but it's still something I've been wanting to read for awhile now. Hopefully, it's good. I wasn't a big fan of Halo, so I'm also hoping that Hades is a little bit better. And I love the idea of You Have Seven Messages! It really reminds me of the book Thirteen Reasons Why.

What did you guys get in your mailbox this week? Answer in the comments or leave a link to your post, so I can check it out. :D


  1. Oh I LOVE the Halo book covers! Hades is gorgeous! Can't wait to see your thoughts. I've had Halo for months, but I've not read it :S

  2. I was just recommended to check out Abandon, so I really need to check it out. I have Hades as well but I don't think I am going to read it till book 3 is going to be released so I can read them all together.

    Happy reading

  3. I've been wanting to read Abandon forever!! and agree with Sarah in the above comment.. the covers for Halo/Hades are gorgeous!! :)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I've had Abandon on my TBR shelf forever and haven't gotten around to getting myself a copy yet. I also wasn't a huge fan of Halo, so much so that I'm not sure if I'll bother with Hades (even though the cover is gorgeous!)

  18. Well the cover for Hades is awesome. Let's hope the book is as good as it's cover :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  19. I've been hesitant about Abandon, too, so I look forward to your review!

  20. I read Abandon not too long ago and I plan to write a review for it later in the month. I wasn't blown away, but it was a decent interpretation of the Hades/Persephone myth. I'm looking forward to part two to see if it's better. The best way to describe my time reading Halo is tedious. I love the covers for both books, though! I don't know if I could handle the emotion in You Have Seven Messages, probably why I haven't read Thirteen Reasons Why either.

    Have a fabulous reading week, Kat, and thank you for stopping by my blog!

  21. @Shae Carcar - You should definitely read it. :) It wasn't all that awesome, but it was still pretty enjoyable.

    @Kat C - I agree. The cover of Halo is amazing. o:

    @HD - Yes, yes, I have! I loved that book! :)

    @Kelly - I was a little unsure about reading Hades, too, but I'm the kind of person who is crazy about reading a series all the way through.. I couldn't resist picking it up when I saw it at the library, haha.

    A. Knight - I'll have to check out your review! :)

  22. Great week of books! I really want to get my hands on and read Abandon as well, the majority of people seem to enjoy it! [: Hope you enjoy all your books.
    Thanks for stopping by my IMM!

  24. I really want to read You Have Seven Messages! :) Happy Reading! :D

  25. I heard that You have Seven Messages is good. Hades has such a nice cover, i haven't read the first book yet. Hope this one's good though.

    Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by!
