In My Mailbox #24

Sunday, April 17, 2011

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

FOR REVIEW:

Enticed (The Violet Eden Chapters #2) by Jessica Shirvington - Aussie YA paranormal romance (angels) series.  Thanks to Hachette Australia.
Friendship on Fire by Danielle Weiler - Aussie YA contemp.  Also debut author of 2011.  Thanks to Danielle Weiler.

FROM SWAP/GIFTED:

The Ex Games & Major Crush by Jennifer Echols - YA romantic comedies.
Falling Under by Gwen Hayes - YA paranormal romance and debut author of 2011.
Between the Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - Historical fiction and debut author of 2011.
Rosebush by Michele Jaffe -  YA thriller.
It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han - Book 2 in this contemp series.  I have already read it and loved it even more than the first one.  The final book gets released soon.
Slayed by Amanda Marrone - YA paranormal read.
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - What I would consider mix genre - historical and contemp.  I have read so many amazing reviews for this book.
Shattered Sky by Helene Young - Aussie adult romantic suspense. 

Most of these swaps were made through the Aussie Swap Group.   Also got a bunch of swag through Aussie Swap, so thank you ladies!

BOUGHT:
Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren (ebook) - I have read so many rave reviews for this YA historical fiction (and I did hear their were Italian hotties running around shirtless fighting with swords). 
What did you get in your mailbox?

I'm eager to know what you will think of The Replacement. There are a lot of mixed reviews for it, but I liked it. Same with Falling Under. I'm not sure what to think of that book.

And of course I'm always looking to you for new Aussie recs. Those that you got for review look good.

Happy Reading Nic!

Still sad about letting my ARC of Between Shades of Gray go. Haha. Can't wait to hear what you think of it though. ;) You got a great stack of books this week. A lot of those are on my TBR.

I still need to read the second book by Jenny Han but I loved the first one so will probably read it sometime in the summer. Will look out for your reviews of Enticed and Friendship on Fire. I love learning of new titles I dont know about. Happy reading!

I’m curious to hear what you think of Enticed. I did read the first book in The Violet Eden Chapters, but have not decided whether I’ll pick up the second!

ARGH. Enticed!! It's in my Kmart, but it's $17 and I'm SO BROKE, so I can't afford it. ='(!!!

Super awesome mailbox! I love the cover on Enticed. I wish Aussie books weren't so expensive to ship to the US. But I understand why! lol I definitely want to read Falling Under.
