In My Mailbox #37 - Legend and more...

Sunday, August 21, 2011


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




For review:
Deception by Lee Nichols - First book in a YA trilogy of "ghosts, romance and mystery".  Thanks to Bloomsbury.


All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin - YA dystopia.  I had already received the bound pages but now I have a finished copy.  You can check out my review HERE.  Thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia.  I also received All These Things I've Done in audio format as well thanks to Macmillan Audio.


Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick - The sequel to Hush, Hush.  This was sent to me so I can catch up on the series before Silence is released in October.  Thanks to Simon & Schuster.

Unlovable by Sherry Gammon - YA contemp and debut author of 2011.  Thanks to Sherry Gammon.


Borrowed:
Legend by Marie Lu - YA dystopia and debut author of 2011.  I am so excited to read this after reading so many amazing reviews for it.  Thanks to Alexa.

Gifted:
Tangled by Carolyn Mackler - YA contemp.  "The good girl, the jock, the beautiful one and the geek.  Tangled them together and the unexpected happens".  Doesn't that sound good?  Thanks to my friend in Germany.


Bought:
Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James - YA Aussie thriller.   I have been wanting to buy this for months and yesterday being National Bookshop Day in Australia and gave me an excuse to finally buy it (even with my TBR pile overflowing).

What did you get in your mailbox?

Beautiful Malice is one of my faves! Hope you love it! :)

Brett @ Demons Read Too said...

Great books. Crescendo's okay, but Nora annoyed me a bit. Tangled sounds alright, I hadn't heard of it before.

Thanks for popping by.

I love Beautiful Malice. I need to buy it. I borrowed the copy that I read off of my friend :P Haha.
Tangled sounds kinda interesting, only going on your little description, I don't think I have heard of it :)
I am really excited to read Silence. The Hush Hush series is my younger sisters favourite, she compares everything to it. :)

Ooh, I'm excited to read Legend (when it comes out) too! The hype, the synopsis, everything about it sounds awesome! Hope you love it!

Ashley @ Book Labyrinth said...

Oh it's the new Tangled cover!!

And speaking of different covers, I really like the chocolate heart version of 'All These Things I've Done', but I love the colours on that version of the cover as well.

Enjoy your books! =)

It has a bit of an unusual time-frame narrative, but I loved it anyway!

Deception sounds interesting with ghosts! I have Unloveable to read, cover is gorgeous and Crescendo, well I do love Hush, Hush and Crescendo, I enjoyed but Silence is going to go off!!! I can't wait. Patch was my first fictional crush..sigh.... I can't wait for him in Silence, I am very bouncy.
