In My Mailbox #36 - Lola plus a whole other bunch of goodies

Sunday, August 14, 2011


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


For Review:

Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson - YA supernatural tale.  I have been desperate to read this after Leanna's review.  Not only did I get a unexpected review copy but I also bought a copy beforehand as it is my book club read this month.  So expect a giveaway.  Thanks to Simon & Schuster Australia.

Fury by Elizabeth Miles - Debut novel of 2011, YA paranormal.  Gorgeous cover but it has been getting lots of mixed reviews which makes me curious.  Thanks to Simon & Schuster Australia.  

Wolf Blood by N.M Browne - YA fantasy about werewolves.  Haven't heard much about this but the synopsis sounds goods.    Thanks to Bloomsbury Australia.

Gifted:

Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins  - I think we all know about this companion book to Anna and The French Kiss.  I have already read it and of course it was AMAZING!  Review will be posted Friday.  A big thanks to my awesome friend who sent me this!

Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer - The sequel to Nightshade, a YA werewolves series.  I had a wonderful friend (who I can't thank enough) who went to a signing and got me a personalised signed copy.  It says " Keep in the wild hunt".  


Bought:

The Bridge by Jane Higgins - YA dystopia novel and debut author of 2011.  This is an Australian publishing title and winner of The Text Prize.  

Swag:
Gifted a bunch of swag, bookmarks and other goodies including signed Audition bookmarks from Stasia Ward Kehoe.
