In My Mailbox (20)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren all about the new books you've received throughout the week. These can be review titles, books you bought, books you borrowed, whatever! IMM is about show casing these new titles. 

I have said I've  been on a book getting ban which is why I didn't get anything last week. (*sobs*) So this week, when I saw the books that came in for me at the library I completely ignored that ban and took them all. I'll probably never finish them all in time but I couldn't let these titles go. 

For Review

Seize the Story by Victoria Hanley (The Book Depository/Amazon)
First off, thank you Prufrock Press! I know November is NaNoWriMo but I can't participate because of school. But I can still write! I'm really excited for the tips & tricks here. Plus, the cover is so much fun to look at. Every time I notice something new. ☺

From the Library

The Hidden by Jessica Verday (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I've always liked this series and I can't wait to see how everything turns out. Plus I'm curious about that ring!
Fury by Elizabeth Miles (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I've heard some great stuff about this one. Plus, the cover is soo pretty!
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins (The Book Depository/Amazon)
Anna and the French Kiss was awesome, which gives me more than enough reason to read Lola!
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I've also heard so much good stuff about this one, and with the creepy cover and premise filled with suspense, it's one of my must reads.
Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I'm such a huge fan of this series and I love Simone's books! I know I'll devour this book and I can't wait to read about Luis' story. 

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I met Margaret on tour and she was awesome so I'd probably read any book she writes... but I do love this series too! I ♥ Casters!
Drink Slay Love by Sarah Beth Durst (The Book Depository/Amazon)
This title is amazing. The cover looks awesome. Plus, I make it my personal mission to read anything in YA about slaying and hunters. Yeah, I'm a Buffy and Supernatural fan. 
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr (The Book Depository/Amazon)
Sara Zarr comes with huge recommendations so I wanted to try this book. Also, the title reminds me of that song How to Save a Life and I liked that so I couldn't pass on this book.
Dark of the Moon by Tracy Barrett (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I honestly have no clue what this book is about, but the title and the cover make it seem right up my alley. I'm ready to be surprised!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I've seen nothing but good about this book. Seriously. I need it. Plus the cover and premise look awesome. 
Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen (The Book Depository/Amazon)
I love Anna's books, plus Bright Young Things was great! I love reading about the 20s!

So that's what I got in my mailbox this week. I honestly just want to take three weeks off school and finish all the books on my TBR so I can start these. They sound great and I'm looking forward to reviewing them. Anyway, thanks for visiting Tantalizing Illusions! Feel free to comment and leave a link. Let me know what you got in your mailbox!
