In My Mailbox



*In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren which allows bloggers to share what books they bought/received each week.*


Hey Bookies! This week's In My Mailbox is an assortment of books and I am so excited to share with you what I received in my mailbox recently. This haul is a throwback I didn't post while I was on a supernatural adult romance binge. I recently read Winter Wolf and decided to get the next two books in the trilogy. Take a look at my haul below:

Spread the Word Sunday


*Spread the Word Sunday is a meme hosted by The Tattered Page to announce some sort of book related news or cause.*

I am attending ALA again this year and I can't wait. I am excited about all of the new books and visiting a new state and city. I have always been interested in visiting New Orleans and the French Quarter. Oak Alley Plantation, the bayou, St. Louis Cemetery, and so on. Let's go New Orleans!


For those who do not know what the American Library Association convention is, I provided some info below:

"With more than 900 exhibiting organizations, multiple pavilions and stages featuring the hottest authors, and numerous related fun events, the exhibit floor is an integral part of your learning, professional development, and networking. The Exhibit Hall offers you the opportunity to explore and discuss with expert vendors the breadth and depth of new and favorite library products, services, books, online services, tools, and technologies.
The ALA Annual Exhibits will be held in McCormick Place, Chicago.

Exhibit Hours
June 22nd: Friday Opening Reception on the Exhibit Floor5:30pm - 7:00pm

As I mentioned in my posts, ALA Midwinter 2016 Recap & ALA Annual 2016 RecapALA Conferences are quite similar to BookExpo America. More like a lowkey version of BookExpo America. And I am so grateful to be able to have attended!

If you're a fellow book blogger or someone who loves books and will be attending this year's Annual Conference, look me up!

The Story:

The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears!

When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.
