In My Mailbox #33

Sunday, July 17, 2011



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




FOR REVIEW:
Ultraviolet by R J Anderson - YA paranormal supernatural - actually not quite sure.  Reading it a the moment and it is very unique.  Thanks to Hachette Australia.
Glow by Any Kathleen Ryan - YA sci-fi.   I am loving the Aussie cover.  Thanks to Pan Macmillian Australia.
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - Amazing YA coming age road trip story.  Thanks to Simon & Schuster Australia.
Brother/Sister by Sean Olin - YA contemp.  On the back cover it is described as "It's Flowers in The Attic meets Natural Born Killers".  Thanks to Penguin Australia.


BOUGHT:
Bad Taste In Boys by Carrie Harris - YA debut zombie tale that has the prettiest cover I have ever seen and sounds like so much fun.

WON:
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson - YA dystopia that I have been wanting for a while.  Thanks to Moonlight Reader.

GAH I want the UK Amy & Roger - that is seriously such an amazing cover. And I loved Bad Taste in Boys, hope you do too, as well as the rest of your books :)

So many awesome books. I'm totally jealous. Can't wait to read your reviews, especially Brother/Sister and Bad Taste in Boys.

Ange said...

I can't wait to read Bad Taste in Boys, I love the cover. Glow is on my TBR pile as well, can't wait. Hope you enjoy The Adoration of Jenna Fox, I loved that one.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh I'm curious as to what you will think about Ultraviolet! Brother/Sister looks like it might be creepy. Can't wait for the reviews!

Lux (The Paperback Heart) said...

Awesome haul this week - I also got Amy and Roger's Epic Detour.
Zombies completely creep me out, but I think I'm willing to read Bad Taste In Boys!

Good Golly Miss Holly said...

Ah! Ultraviolet, I can't wait to get my hands on that one.. It looks great, as does Bad Taste in Boys.

Happy reading, Nic!

Braiden said...

I’ve heard great things about Ultraviolet but I dislike how they use that foil finishing or whatever on book covers. Makes it dark and unattractive to me.

Nice week of books! I too got Glow :)

Rebecca said...

Great books you got this week. Ultraviolet is so awesome. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

Nomes said...

" "It's Flowers in The Attic meets Natural Born Killers". " LOL

Oh you had such an amazing haul this week!!! I can't wait to read Bad Taste In Boys... where abouts did you buy it from? If it's in Aussie stores already I might pick a copy up tomorrow! I am also giving away a copy on my blog at the moment, so it'd be good if I could review it before the end of the month! :)

Yahong Chi said...

My eyes land on this page and all those covers scream AUSSIE! :D The Adoration of Jenna Fox is uber-cool, hope you like it. And Glow, ooooh! *jealous* Ultraviolet is a tad weird, I agree. In any case, enjoy your books!

A.J. said...

Amy & Roger! <3 <3 That cover is pretty cute. :3

I got Glow too! What is up with the US cover?? Just doesn't look nice. The Aussie cover is way better. It reminds me of Across the Universe.

Curious to know what you think of Brother/Sister and Jenna Fox. And I hope Bad Taste In Boys is good because it sounds really interesting! :)

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

Whoa! You have so many comments already!! Sheesh, woman. :P

ULTRAVIOLET! Must have. I'm sorry...I'm burnt out from typing up so many comments. Can't wait to see what you think of these books. (Y)

Happy reading!

Jenny said...

WOW NIC!!!! You got some epic books this week! I can't wait for Glow and I've heard the Jenna Fox series is amazing too. I need to read the first one:) Looking forward to your thoughts on all of them!

Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings) said...

Oh, I loved the Adoration of Jenna Fox and I can't wait for book 2, the Fox Legacy? or something like that.

I hope you like it too. I hadn't thought that was dystopian, though. LOL

And I got that Amy and Roger this week too, I love how pink and cool is the cover :D
