Always love seeing what goodies you get!

This week I bought 'The Forest of Hands and Teeth' by Carrie Ryan, 'The Sky is Everywhere' for my kindle (I NEED a hard copy though... I want to see the beautiful photographs!) and The Name of the Star from netgalley.

I also borrowed 'What Alice Forgot' from the library. I'm excited to read it :D

Will look out for your revie of Tris and Izzie. I want to get a copy when it comes out since the cover is so gorgeous. Happy reading!

Alexa said...

I NEED one of those Piper Son skins for my Kindle ~ LOVE it!

I also bought You against Me this week, the UK cover has her name in a different place and his t-shirt is green - always fascinates me the changes they make. I wonder why.

Hope you love What Alice Forgot, I adored it.

Allison said...

I've heard a lot of really positive things about What Alice Forgot, hope you love it too!

Ohhhh I love the Barrons bag. I'm so jealous you got The Name of the Star from Netgalley, I requested it without realising it was only available to Australian readers oops!

Steph said...

Nice books! And that's a really cool skin. I'm not sure if I should get one, it'd be so awesome, but I actually already have that big cover with the light on it, so I dunno lol. Enjoy reading :)

You got some great reads this week. I've had You Against Me sitting on my shelf for too long now and I need to read it. I loved the Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta, she's one of my favourite authors. Happy Reading

Great IMM! That kindle skin and bag are awesome! Hope you like You Against Me! :)

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

Great books!

I've wanted to read What Alice Forget ever since reading Nomes review!

I got Tris & Izzie off Netgalley this week too. I've been seeing some bad reviews, so I'm hoping it's not just a pretty cover! :/

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Hey! Barrons is happily lounging in my harem. I'll let him know you were thinking of him. Wait... that might be dangerous... Uh, nevermind *checks the locks and stares at Nic* ;D

Seriously, I can't wait to hear what you think about Tris and Izzie. Oh I need to run to NetGalley now! :)

Savannah said...

Great mailbox! I loved Winter Longing! Enjoy all of your books!

Cozy in Texas said...

I stopped by your blog today.

Missie said...

That is the COOLEST Kindle cover Evah! And if Barrons came with that bag, I'd by about a million. LOL

Been dying to read You Against Me. It releases here in the U.S. in Sept.

Please let me know if it is good.

Great mailbox. Enjoy.

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

That Kindle Skin is fantastic! I never thought of getting a book cover on mine! I need to go see if I can find where this was bought and if I can even get over here in the US!

I keep meaning to read and buy Winter's Longing, I hope it's good!

danya said...

Awesome IMM! I've been wanting to read What Alice Forgot (I saw Nomes' review of that one too!) You Against Me was one of my WoWs a long time ago, but I haven't seen many reviews so I'll be interested to see what you make of it!

Stalking The Bookshelves said...

I wish You Against Me was already out in the US. I want to read that book SOOOO bad. Tris & Izzie and The Name of the Star both look really good too. Enjoy all of your books and have a fun week! Happy Reading!

Kristin said...

You have a nice list of books that you received this week in your mailbox. I have Tris&Izzie too!
Happy Reading,
