IMM (2)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren. Participants share the books they received for the week.

This week I got a mixture of January releases and some books that I’d had on my wish list for a little while.

I received a package from Heidi of YA Bibliophile that contained:

  • Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian
  • Hereville by Barry Deutsch

I got one book from a tour this week:

  • Falling in Love With English Boys by Melissa Jensen

I bought:

  • The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher
  • Taking Off by Jenny Moss
  • The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan
  • Jazz in Love by Neesha Meminger
  • Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
  • Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert

I received the following non-pictured items for review:

  • The Princess of Las Pulgas by C. Lee McKenzie
  • Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz (Galley Grab)
  • Small Acts of Amazing Courage by Gloria Whelan (Galley Grab)
  • Stay by Deb Caletti (Galley Grab)
  • Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez (Galley Grab)
  • Angry Young Man by Chris Lynch (Galley Grab)
  • Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O’Roark Dowell (Galley Grab)
  • Haven by Kristi Cook (Galley Grab)
  • Shine by Lauren Myracle (NetGalley)

I admittedly probably over-downloaded this week, so I’m not sure when I’ll get to all of these, but I figured I’d stick them on my Nook and read them as the mood strikes.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

  • You received an impressive amount of books this week. I went a bit overboard with my purchases. I’m happy to see Not That Kind of Girl and The Lover’s Dictionary here. NTKOG was a fantastic book, I will definitely reread it some time this year and I can’t wait to start The Lover’s Dictionary. I look forward to reading your thoughts about it. It seems like it will be very different from Levithan’s other books.

  • Wow! awesome pile there 😉 I want to read Haven, so you’ll have to tell me how it is. Also – have you read anything by Deb Caletti before? I was browsing her books yesterday at B&N, but wasn’t sure.

    • I read The Six Rules of Maybe and liked it. I also just got Wild Roses at a used bookstore, but haven’t read it yet. I think she’s supposed to be very similar to Sarah Dessen. Obviously I don’t know that for sure yet since I still haven’t read any Dessen, so I’ll have to get back to you on that 😛

    • I LOVE all things David Levithan sooo much. I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one, too.

  • I read some pretty good reviews about Not That Kind of Girl. That was the only book I didn’t put on my Christmas wish list because I was so freaked out about that awful cover. I still intend to purchase and read it. =)

    • I hadn’t really wanted it either but then people kept saying it was amazing, and Heidi generously offered me a copy. I’m looking forward to seeing what the fuss is about.

  • I MUST go buy The Lover’s Dictionary ASAP! I think a lot of us bought The Water Wars so can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that one as well as the others.

    In other news, I have been on a writing funk too so here’s to both of us getting out of it!

    • I’m not planning to write a formal review of The Water Wars because I didn’t love it and I’m feeling incredibly unmotivated to write these days. It was much more adventurey than I guess I anticipated, so if that is your thing, you might really enjoy it. I liked the premise, but I just felt like some of the scenarios got to be kind of ridiculous.

      We need to talk about this writing funk. And how to get out of it. Or over it. Or under it. =/
