In My Mailbox #15

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.

When 16-year-old Nick receives a package containing the mysterious computer game Erebos, he wonders if it will explain the behavior of his classmates, who have been secretive lately. Players of the game must obey strict rules: always play alone, never talk about the game, and never tell anyone your nickname.

Curious, Nick joins the game and quickly becomes addicted. But Erebos knows a lot about the players and begins to manipulate their lives. When it sends Nick on a deadly assignment, he refuses and is banished from the game.

Now unable to play, Nick turns to a friend for help in finding out who controls the game. The two set off on a dangerous mission in which the border between reality and the virtual world begins to blur. This utterly convincing and suspenseful thriller originated in Germany, where it has become a runaway bestseller.

Erebos by Ursula Poznanski

So I only got one book this week, but that's okay because I'm really excited to read this one. I've always loved books that involved video games/virtual realities! :) Plus, it reminds me of a manga or anime that I've read/seen before, although I can't quite remember what it was... Anyway, I'm hoping to get to this one soon!

What'd you get in your mailbox this week? Leave a link to your own IMM in the comments, and I'll be sure to visit!

    I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Ooh this one looks fantastic? I can't wait for your review! :D I really hope you enjoy it. You have a cute blog and I was reading the post below this- definitely keep blogging and don't be discouraged by bloggers who can post everyday! I certainly don't let that get to me. Anyway, I'd rather read 2 or 3 good posts in one week than 7 boring or sloppy posts:) I hope you have an absolutely fantastic week, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Thanks for the advice! :) Sometimes it's hard not to get discouraged, but you're right! It's much better to post a couple of posts that actually have thought in them, rather than post like a paragraph on nothing each day. I'm going to try to write more good-quality posts. :D

      I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. This book sounds really cool! And when it says Netgalley, does it mean you got it from that website or....?

    1. Yep! It means I got it from Have you used that website before? It basically is a way to read ARCs from publishers in ebook format. If you haven't, you should go check it out!

  4. I haven't heard of this book before. I like it! I'm going to check that out myself.

    Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading!
