In My Mailbox (38) & Stacking the Shelves (44)

Welcome to this week's In My Mailbox. In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by The Story Siren, who was inspired by a fellow book blogger Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It features books I have bought or received for review.

Stacking the Shelves by Tynga`s Reviews is about adding books to my shelves I received during the past week whether it is physical or virtual.

Bought from Amazon: 
Play (Stage Dive #2) by Kylie Scott

Received for Review:
Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin

I am so excited to read Play (Stage Dive #2). I read Lick previously, the first book, and I loved Mal. He was hilarious in the first book so I know this book will be good. Tabula Rasa sounds awesome and I am also excited to read it as well.

Don't forget, April is my 1 year blogiversary and I am hosting the giveaway here.

Waiting on Wednesday (42)

Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I absolutely loved this author Starcrossed series. I think I read the whole series in a weekend so when I saw she was coming out another series I actually squealed because I was so excited. I know this series will be just as good! Did I say how much I love this cover? I do, a lot :)

Expected Publication Date: September 2, 2014

Synopsis: (Taken from Goodreads)
Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.

This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.

Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.

But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?
