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. oooh, really want to read Just One Wish! Happy Reading!

  3. You got a bunch of books there that I really want to read. Awesome week. Enjoy!


  4. Lots of nice books this week! You're so lucky to have Hush, Hush!

  5. You're not gonna be able to hold back on reading Hush, Hush! It's that good! ;P

  6. I'm so jealous of Hush, Hush! I really want to read The Stolen One and Bad Girls Don't Die also. :) I'm reading Sophomore Switch right now, and it's really good. Happy reading!

  7. Great books, Sophomore Switch sounds really good.

  8. 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.


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
