In My Mailbox 18.

Books & Sensibility is taking part in the In My Mailbox meme started by The Story Siren. Each week bloggers post books that have arrived in their mailbox, picked up from the bookstore or purchased. Here are some books I'm getting ready to read.

These books were purchased during an author event last week. I wasn't familiar with all the author's there but each of their novels peaked my interest enough for me to want to check them out.

The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kitteredge

In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dust. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical—born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is growing shorter by the day.     Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. 

Corsets & Clockwork

Dark, urban fantasies come to life in the newest collection of Steampunk stories, Corsets & Clockwork. Young heroes and heroines battle evils with the help of supernatural or super-technological powers, each individual story perfectly balancing historical and fantastical elements. Throw in epic romances that transcend time, and this trendy, engrossing anthology is sure to become another hit for the fast-growing Steampunk genre!This collection features some of the hottest writers in the teen genre, including: Ann Aguirre, Jaclyn Dolamore, Tessa Gratton, Frewin Jones, Caitlin Kittredge, Adrienne Kress, Lesley Livingston, Dru Pagliassotti, Dia Reeves, Michael Scott, Maria V. Snyder, Tiffany Trent, and Kiersten White.(

I won this from Stuck In Books. I haven't finished Delirium  but Kat has and was excited when this came. It got rained on a little but is in great shape !

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

  2. I've heard fabulous things about Born Wicked, and I need to get ahold of Pandemonium sometime so I can see what happens next to Lena. I hope that you enjoy your new books. Have a great week. :)

  9. I'm pretty sure Pandemonium will be coming up next for me. I am reading Delirium now and really enjoying it.

  10. Pandemonium was fantastic! There are some things very different from Delirium, but Lauren Oliver did a bang up job in the sequel. I think if you end up liking Delirium you will like Pandemonium.

    The rest of these books look like they will be good reads. I can't wait to read your review for Born Wicked!

  11. I love all of them! Still need to read them though, but nice haul! :D Great taste.

    Happy reading.
