In My Mailbox (3)

IMM is hosted by Kristi, aka The Story Siren!

I’m posting this IMM kind of late in the day since I slept till about 2pm today. Yesterday was my best friend’s wedding and it was a loooong day. It took some time to fully recover!

Today was a good week in books though – I received a few and got a few read. So it balanced out nicely. 🙂

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (October 13th 2009) (won)
I am so, so excited to read this book! I’m waiting until a little closer to October to read and review it though – but I read the first couple paragraphs and almost collapsed in a comfy chair to read it. I think it is going to be AMAZING!

The Stolen One by Suzanne Crowley + goodies (won)
I won this and a goodies bag. The goodies bag had a bunch of cool stuff in it (handmade bookmark, some pear flavored jellybeans in a cute pouch, a signed sticker, a promo card). I am really looking forward to reading it – I’ve heard lots of good things about it!

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler (library)
I got this book because I read Guyaholic and really enjoyed it. Plus, this author has a new book called Tangled coming out at the end of the year and I wanted to read some of her older stuff first.

Sophomore Switch by Abby McDonald
This book looked really cute and I’m moving to my new college soon – so I thought it was kind of relevant. Plus I really like the cover.

A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell
This is another one that I picked solely based on the cover. I haven’t actually heard that great of reviews about this book, but I still wanted to give a it a shot. The plot sounds good, so…. Has anyone read it and liked it???

Betrayed (A House of Night Novel) by P.C. and Kristin Cast
I need to catch up on the series, as I have only read the first one. I didn’t really like that one all that much, but I’ve been told they get better.

Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender
REALLY excited about this one – I love the cover and the plot sounds great.

The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong
I loved The Summoning and have been waiting for this one! I didn’t want to buy hardcover because I have a softcover of The Summoning and luckily the library finally got this one!

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
I love E. Scott’s novels, so I wanted to give her heavier, more serious novel a try.

Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn
I loved this cover and I’m interested in Titanic stuff – so I’m giving this one a try.

Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
I’ve never read these, but I saw they were reprinted with new covers. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy them though, so I got the first one from the library.

Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
I heard this one was good, so I snatched it from the library.

  1. Lots of awesome books this week girl!I'll be honest about Map of the Known World – really didn't like it. But, give it a shot. You may like it more than I did. There's just some character flaws and it didn't move me like I thought it would.

  2. I read Chosen of the P.C. Cast series. I had typed 'vampires' into the search engine at the library. I did not know Chosen was a part of a series at the time so thus I started out with the third book. I really enjoyed Chosen even though it took me quite a few chapters to figure out what was going on. Let me know if I should backtrack and read books one and two. I don't want to miss out on any important details that I won't get from cont. on from book three.

Comments always welcome, but be sure to whisper, I'm hiding!
