In My Mailbox #19

Sunday, March 13, 2011

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


This week is a huge mailbox.   I wasn't planning on going book shopping but I was in town, near my favourite bookstore and I couldn't help myself.  So there goes the book budget!


SWAPPED:
Saltwaters Moon by Julie Gittus - After Nomes' brilliant review I knew I had to get my hands on this Aussie YA contemp title.  Plus I am in love with this cover.

BOUGHT:
Tripple Ripple by Brigid Lowry - Another Aussie YA title.  This was just released and is contemp fairy tale.
Guitar Rose Highway also by Brigid Lowry -   Another Aussie YA contemp about two characters who run away together.
The Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead - Adult paranormal.  Love Richelle Mead, one of my favourite authors.  This is book 3 in the series.
Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott - Yes I am on a Elizabeth Scott binge at the moment.  Her writing is just brilliant.  This is a YA contemp.
Forsaken (also known as The Demon Trapper's Daughter) by Jana Oliver - I have heard good things about this YA paranormal fiction.

FOR REVIEW (ebooks not pictured):
Die For Me by Amy Plum - This is my most anticipated read of 2011.  It is YA paranormal/urban fantasy read and Amy Plum is a debut author.
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - Another debut author of 2011.

BLOGS I HEART - Awesome blogger Jess at Tales of Compendium is holding an amazing Aussie books giveaway.    Where you can win three signed books from some of Australia's YA authors.  This giveaway is opened INTERNATIONALLY.

Thanks for letting us know about the giveaway, Nic. I requested Starcrossed and Die For Me too :) If I remember correctly, Love You Hate You Miss You was written in a diary format so it was a little different but still good.
