In My Mailbox [36]

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren showcasing what great stuff one got that week (usually goods pertaining to books).

This week I got Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready (for review), which was super-exciting. I happened to be having a pretty bad day, so it definitely cheered me up to find a package in the mailbox. And it was thicker than I'd been expecting, so I opened it up to find that it also contained White Cat by Holly Black! And there was a personalized note mentioning how [the sender] really enjoyed White Cat, and I just found it really touching that she went that extra mile. So thank you! :)

Keep an eye out for a review for Shade which will be coming soon - it was a fantastic read, I'll say that much for now. For some reason, I keep accidentally typing/thinking Black Cat. Weird, huh? Anyway, been hearing some mixed reviews about White Cat, of the two opposite extremes, so it'll be interesting to see what I think.

What're your guys' thoughts on these? What was in your mailbox this week?

I'm glad to hear you liked Shade. I can't wait to read that one. I look forward to your review. White Cat sounds like it could be good. I will probably try to get it from a library. I hope you like it!
