In My Mail Box #12

Monday, January 17, 2011

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

This week I got quite a few books.  Might I add they arrived before the floods so I was lucky to have them why I waited for the water to go down.


BOUGHT:
Matched by Allie Condie -Dystopia novel that I am sure we have all heard of.
The Lost Saints by Bree Despain - 2nd book in Dark Divine series.
Angel by L.A. Weatherly - A story about angels where they are the bad guys.
Shadowspell by Jenna Black - 2nd book in the Faeriewalker series.

GIFTED:
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler - Realistic fiction about family and love by one of my favourite authors.
Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney - Realistic fiction that deal with date rape and standing up for yourself.

FOR REVIEW:
Ordeal by T.K. Varenko (not pictured - ebook) A vampire verse novel.

What did you get in your mail box?

Look at all the good stuff you got this week! I can't wait to see what you think of Matched, it's been pretty love it or hate it for most people, but I just adored it. I've heard The Mockingbirds is fabulous as well, looking forward to your thoughts on it Nic!

Where did you buy Shadowspell? I checked both my bookstores (Unleash and Angus & Robertson) but they didn't have it. :(

And The Mockingbirds... ahh, so jealous! I hope you like it! :)

Awesome mailbox! I've got all of these either in my wishlist or my TBR pile.

Missie said...

Hey Nic. I'm totally looking forward to seeing what you think of Matched. It was one of my favs last year, but it has mixed reviews.

And some of your other titles are definitely on my wishlist.

Great mailbox! Happy reading.

Great books! I've been wanting to read Fixing Delilah since I finished Twenty Boy Summer, and Matched and The Mockingbirds seem really interesting as well. Hope you enjoy your books!

A.J. said...

Can't wait to know what you think about Angel and The Mockingbirds. :)
I can't remember what happened in The Dark Divine, so looks like I'm gonna have to reread it before I ever try The Lost Saint. ^^;;

Elodie said...

What an awesome mailbox, Nic! I thought The Mockingbirds was pretty powerful, even though it wasn't my absolutely favourite, so I'll be looking forward to your review of that. Enjoy! :)

Pretty books! I'm looking forward to your review of Angel especially. A vampire verse novel? That sounds interesting.
