In My Mailbox #34

Sunday, July 31, 2011

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



FOR REVIEW:

Torrent (River of Time #3) by Lisa Tawn Bergren - YA historical fiction.  I am so excited to have my hands on an early copy of the final installment.  I love this series, you should really read it.  Thanks to Lisa Tawn Bergren.

Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart - YA fantasy by debut Aussie author.  I have heard only awesome things about this so it is sitting right at the top of my reading stack.  Thanks to Random House Australia and Rhiannon Hart.

Days Like These by Alison Stewart - YA dystopia. This is also by an Australian author.  Thanks to Penguin Australia.



BORROWED/BOOK TOUR:

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - YA paranormal debut author of 2011.  I have already read this and didn't love it unfortunately.  Stayed tuned for a review.  Thanks to Alexa.

BOUGHT:


Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker - YA contemp.  This book has the most gorgeous cover and I love Lovestruck Summer also by Melissa Walker.

Blood Song looks amazing I think I will be adding it to my wishlist now. I ordered A Little Wanting Song on your recommendation, the blurb sounds fantastic so I cannot wait to start it.

Ohh, I really want to read "The Sky Always Hears Me and The Hills Don't Mind", been looking at it for a while.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has been getting really mixed reviews... not sure whether I'm to fussed about reading it.

Happy reading :)

Ange said...

I just bought Waterfall this week (it hasn't come yet and I'm dying waiting for it) - so excited! Lucky you getting Torrent, can't wait for your review. I'm also interested to see what you thought of Mara Dyer since it wasn't your favorite. Awesome books Nic!

Jen the bibliophile said...

I really love the Days Like This book cover. It looks really good. Although, I've been totally skeptical of YA Dystopians lately. I'll be waiting for your review! :D

{I'm sorry you didn't really get into The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I can see you would have issues with Noah. Womanizers don't usually sit well with me. I think my sub-conscious blocked that little note when reading o_0...Or possibly I hoped it was all a lie.)

I love the sound of Small Town Sinners, it looks great! As for Mara Dyer, I've seen a lot of mixed reviews but I still really want to read it (and I love the cover). Great books this week - happy reading :).

Hafsah @ IceyBooks said...

Those all look super cool! The covers are so gorgeous! I've yet to see for myself if Mara is worth all the hype, but I hope you enjoy it!

Kat said...

Good IMM! Torrent! Oh I need to get on that series. I really can't wait to read it! Oh and Blood Song sounds good too. Can't wait for the reviews!

Rummanah Aasi said...

What a great pile of books! I'm really excited about Mara Dyer and I look forward to reading your reviews!

Jenny N. said...

I've heard good things about Mara Dyer and hope its as good as it sounds. Will look out for your review of it.

A.J. said...

Sorry you didn't care for Mara Dyer.
Can't wait to know what you think of Blood Song and Torrent! Those look good! :D

Small Review said...

Eeep! You got Torrent!! I'm still waiting for my copy :(

I'm sorry to hear you didn't like Mara Dyer. I've read a few good reviews, but I'm not sure if it's for me or not. I'm really curious to read your review. I find negative reviews are more helpful to me when I'm on the fence about a book.

Nomes said...

(hint hint, bump them up the TBR ;)

aweosme books nic :)

Tina said...

Ok Nic...as soon as your done with Torrent you must email me and let me know what you thought!!!!!
