In My Mail Box #3

Sunday, November 7, 2010

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.



Bought

The DUFF - This is my favourite buy of the week.  Not only because of it's gorgeous cover but I have heard it is honest, compelling and edgy.  Keplinger is a debut author and is only 18.  Pretty amazing.
Stolen - I finally picked up a copy of this.  It has been on my wishlist for a while.  Apparently a thought provoking novel.  Lucy Christopher is an Aussie author.
Once a Witch - This book has been around for a while now (since 2009).  All I have heard is good things about this.  I am hoping though it doesn't end of a cliffhanger because the sequel isn't until August 2011.

Trade (Thanks Holly, you are awesome)
How Not To Be Popular - A 2008 release.  I think this books is going to be loads of fun!
Take Me There - My first signed copy of a book! Another book that I am crazy about the cover.
Genesis (The Rosie Black Chronicles) - A dystopian novel by an Australian author.  
The Legacy -Another dystopian book.  This is the final instalment in the triology.  Might you add I still have to read the first two yet!

I also got this week a short story (ebook format) by Amber Vilate for review called The Undead Crimefighting League: Sophie and the Wolf.  Thank you Amber.

What did you get in your mail box?

The DUFF was absolutely amazing! Definitely one of my favorite books. Take Me There looks really good too and even better since it's signed! Congrats :)

i loved stolen. i'm thinking of buying my own copy...

also, how not to be popular was a pretty fun read :)

funny - but holly traded me - and sent me a signed copy of Take me there :) she must have had a few lying around. i read 50 pages and that was enough for me ;) i'm sending my copy to jess. you might like it more than me though - i can't really say much as i didn't finish it anyways :)

looking forward to see what you think of The DUFF (even if you dont review it - just seeing your casual opinion). i'm thinking it's probably not the book for me...

Been wondering about Duff. Interesting premise. I read one review that was mediocre. I'll be anxious to hear what you think.

I'm super interested in The Duff, so I'm looking forward to seeing your thoughts on that :)

And yay Stolen! I've heard so many good things about it. Picked up a copy for a contest winner today, but I'm thinking of getting my own copy as well.

I'm a little late in making my IMM rounds. Great books! I saw someone else had The Rose Black Chronicles book in their stash too. I love the cover. I'm going to check that one out! Happy reading :)
