In my Mailbox (16)

In my Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at www.thestorysiren.com - her website is awesome!

Another awesome week - I didn't mean to to get anything in particular this week but the following did show up (not that I'm complaining)

Bought


Raised by Wolves - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Been waiting for this for ages - very excited to get to reading it as I've heard a lot about it. I do love a bit of wolf action!

Firelight - Sophie Jordan
Another one I preordered ages ago (amazon have been rubbish with my preorders lately this one should have been here at the beginning of the month)- very excited to read it

The Giver - Lois Lowry
Found this in a secondhand bookshop (see my recent post on my favourite bookshops for the bookshop in question). I haven't heard anything about it all but did notice that it was very high up on goodreads list of Young Adult books (literally up there with all the Stephenie Meyer and Harry Potter books) so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

From www.readitswapit.co.uk

No and Me - Delphine De Vigan
Disconnected - Sherri Ashworth
Falling - Sharon Dogar

All of these look good so quite looking forward to them! I am a little more willing to try a variety of different books from readitswapit as I can always swap them back on here. Not heard a huge amount about any of them but would be interested to hear if anyone highly recommends any of them.

I'm actively trying not to get a huge amount of books next week. My TBR shelf is literally overflowing and my library had to have a new bookcase put in this week (I keep having to go in there and look at my babies!)

Raised by Wolves and Firelight look sooo pretty! :x Anyway, I got my hardbacks online. For Mockingjay, I've only seen paperback with UK cover in my local bookstores. D:

Oh, I really want Firelight. I haven't been able to find it in Dubai, and don't want to pay for the shipping. Sniff.

Great books. Raised by Wolves kicks butt- I hope you enjoy it!
Jenny said…
I can't wait for Firelight, my copy is supposed to be on it's way and it can't come fast enough! I loved Raised by Wolves, I'll be looking for your review of that one to see what you think! New follower here, love your blog:)

I really enjoyed Firelight. happy reading!

I just looked up Disconnected and it sounds really good. Maybe even very character driven. Well enjoy the books you got.
Kathy Martin said…
The Giver is a book that is read in one of the English classes here at my school. I personally found the inconclusive ending annoying but it is a well-known dystopia from before dystopias were all the rage. However, I loved Raised by Wolves and enjoyed Firelight. My mailbox is here. Happy reading!
Kat said…

Briana said…

I LOVE The Giver. If you enjoy it as well, I recommend checking out Gathering Blue by Louis Lowry as well. Along the same lines, but different :) I haven't heard anything about Disconnected, but it looks interesting! I'm going to see if I can track down a copy :)
