In My Mailbox #3

October 10, 2010

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they’ve received in the past week. They can be from stores, contests, tours or publishers!

I did a lot of book shopping this week! Although I have loads in my TBR pile, I couldn’t help but purchase a few more that I’ve heard a bit about! This week, the new books on my bookshelf are:

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
The Pact by Jodi Picoult
The Enemy by Charlie Higson (received from publisher)

I’m really excited to finally read these! I’m probably one of the last people on earth to read Wicked Lovely, but better late than never, right? And also, I’m a huge fan of Cate Tiernan’s Sweep series, so I’m sure Immortal Beloved will be just as good! As for The Pact, I’m not really a Jodi Picoult fan (I’m sure her writing is brilliant, but her books themes aren’t usually ones I’m interested in) but The Pact seems really intriguing. It’s about a suicide pact between two teens.

As for The Enemy by Charlie Higson, I requested The Luxe by Anna Godbersen, but then when I opened the package, it was The Enemy! I guess they ran out? Anywho, this one’s about a zombie apocolypse and the goodreads rating is really high, so I’ll definitely give it a shot!

Anywho, what’s in your mailbox this week? And have you read any of my new books?
If it’s your first time here, please check out my International Contest I’m currently running at the moment here! You can win either Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick or Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst!

    You have some great books here. I’ve been thinking about reading Wings. The Pact will absolutely break your heart. I’ve read only a few of Picoult’s books, but this one haunted me for a long time – definitely worth it.

    I like your blog name. So true, so true. I’m a new follower.
    Happy Reading!

      I’ve heard so many great things about The Pact – and how sad it was! It’s quite large so I might read it after I’ve finished some of the shorter reads! I can’t wait, though!

      Thank you for following!!

    Great books! I’ve read Wicked Lovely and thought it was good. I’ve been meaning to read The Pact, since I loved My Sister’s Keeper.
    Well, hope you enjoy! :)
