Sunday, September 11, 2011


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


FOR REVIEW:


There Is No Dog by Meg Rosoff - Described as a "hilarious comic teen fantasy" from an award winning author Meg Rosoff.  Thanks to Penguin Australia.


Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle - A YA novel about a girl who has a special gift - she dreams each night the next day events.  Sounds really good and the cover is gorgeous.  Thanks to P.T. Michelle. 

BORROWED:

Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James - Adult contemporary romance.  I am loving Julie James' books at the moment.  Thanks to Nomes.

BOUGHT:

Torrent by Lisa T. Bergren - One of my favourite reads of this year so I had to have a print copy.  If you haven't read this series do so immediately!

The Dead Girls' Dance and Midnight Alley both by Rachel Caine - I already own both these books but I am trying to get  a matching set of the Australian edition.  And now it is complete!

What did you get in your mailbox?

It would figure that the two books I thought looked the most interesting were from Australia!

Happy reading!

I like the look of 'Practice makes perfect', I'm reading 'Something about you' after your review and love it.
I adore the Brightest kind of darkness cover, so pretty.
Happy reading Nic :)

Whoa, weird -- Dead Girls Dance and Midnight Alley are the only ones missing from my set of Morganville Vampires book too!

And I just got There Is No Dog from the library. I hope it's as great as it looks!

Great week Nic. Love you got the Morganville books. You guys have the same covers to us in the UK which are so much better than the US covers. Enjoy!

The Brightest Kind of Darkness has a gergeous cover and while I know I shouldn't be shallow and judge a book by it's cover, it certainly catches my eye! :-)
