In My Mailbox #

Sunday, June 5, 2011


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


BOUGHT:
But I Love Him by Amanda Grace - YA contemp.  Read this already in one sitting.  So good yet very sad.
Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres - YA dystopia by an Australian author.  After reading Nomes brilliant review I had to buy this.  This is also on the GO AUSSIE BOOK TOURS.

BIRTHDAY GIFTED:
Where She Went by Gayle Forman - YA contemp.  I finally have my own copy.  Now I can read my favourite Adam parts when I want.  Check out my review here.
The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa -YA fantasy.  Love this series and now finally have my own copy of book 3.  Check out my review here.

THROUGH SWAP:
Thyla by Kate Gordon - YA supernatural by an Australian author.  Can't wait to read this.  Has such an awesome cover.
The Girl in The Steel Corset by Kady Cross - YA steampunk.  Read lots of good reviews for this book.

Also I finally signed up for Twitter even though I have no idea what I am doing!


What did you get in your mailbox?

Great lot of books you have.
I really need to read 'If i stay' so i can read 'Where she went' I'm looking forward to Adam.
I also really want to read the iron queen etc.. series.
I find it so hard finding the books i want where i live so i have to wait weeks till they turn up via online.
I'm interested to hear your thoughts on 'But i love him' and 'Thyla' I keep seeing them around but haven't really checked out the blurb.

Nic! You got some awesome books this week! Burn Bright looks so good and creepy, I can't wait for your review of that one:) And I've been wanting to read The Girl in the Steel Corset, Steampunk is a genre that's really growing on me!

I'm intrigued about Buy i love him, will you be reviewing it soon?

nat@book, line, and sinker said...

but i love him has a great cover and your brief comment about it totally intrigued me! i'm gearing up for summer vacation and am filling my beach bag (and kindle) with YA and 'summer' books. great mailbox--i got a few things this week, too, but no YA. i did buy a gail forman book a week or two ago, though.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Ooooh! I want to read Burn Bright. I love the cover and it looks so good!! Good IMM!

Teddyree said...

Can't wait to see what you think of Thyla, and I have a copy of Where She Went too :) I wasn't a fan of The Iron King, bought it just because I loved the cover but was disappointed. Does the series get better?

Julie said...

Cool books! I hope you enjoy them. Yay for Twitter!!

Missie said...

*squee* You got the UK cover of WSW. Being the book collector I am, I plan to have that cover in my personal library someday. :)

So glad you got a Twitter, even though I'm hardly on it myself, I'll be looking out for you.

You've got some great books here!

Alisa said...

Some great books there, and good to see so many Australian authors. I live in Australia too, and admit I probably don't read as many Aussie authors as I should. Happy reading though!!
