In My Mailbox #20

Sunday, March 20, 2011

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

This week I stuck to my book budget and didn't buy anything (well technically anyway).  


BOUGHT:
Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler - I ordered this title a couple of months ago from the US and it has been finally released.  Can't wait to start this YA contemp fiction.  Playing Hurt is one of my favourite covers of 2011.

BORROWED:
Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I am lucky enough to have a wonderful friend who lent me her ARC.  This is the follow up book to If I Stay and is YA contemp.  Already read it and it is BRILLIANT.  Review will be up soon.

FOR REVIEW:
Winter's Shadow by M.J. Hearle - This is an Aussie paranormal-romance YA debut.  It sounds like a dark tale of forbidden love.  Thank you to Pan Macmillan Australia.
Bandits by LM Preston - I have already read the sample chapter of this and it is good.   This is YA sci-fi adventure with a sprinkle of romance and pirates (which leads me to think of Johnny Depp and that is always a good thing).  Thank you to LM Preston.

BLOGS I HEART:  Go and check out Audrey's review at Holes in My Brain of Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar.  It made me want to go and read this amazing book all over again.

I really want to read Playing Hurt! I might be the only person who liked If I Stay better than Where She Went...I guess I have to wait and see when people start posting their reviews, lol. Great books this week!

I've already died over Where She Went, but I'll do it again since it is so fun. LOL

And Winter's Shadow looks soooo good! Please review soon.

Happy Reading, Nic.

P.S. Loved Audrey's review of BR. Made me want to move to Australia all over again.

I think I'm going to have to read If I Stay and Where She Went. I've seen such great reviews and there's a lot of excitement over WSW. Great books this week, hope you enjoy them all!

Yea for Where She Went - I just got that one, too! And I love how you've highlighted Audrey's review - it was wonderful, wasn't it?

Jenny said...

I need to get on the If I Stay train, I'm so out of the loop on that one and Where She Went! So glad to hear you loved it though, I always like it when the sequel to a brilliant book is equally fabulous:) Can't wait for your full review!

All of these books look excellent! I'm jealous of Where She Went, and love the look of Winter's Shadow, though I've never seen it before. Is it being released in the US, too?
