IMM (3)

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

First off, I’ll start by getting the confession out of the way. Here are the books I bought.

  • Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
  • A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley
  • Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles
  • The Education of Hailey Kendrick by Eileen Cook
  • Split by Swati Avasthi
  • Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Next up are the books I received from Paperback Swap. Most of the books I bought were ordered a while ago and just came; lately I’ve been trying to restrict most of my book ordering to PBS as a way to clear off my shelves a bit and spend less money.

  • Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
  • Like the Red Panda by Andrea Seigel
  • Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Lastly, these are the books I received for review, two of which are not pictured because they are on my Nook.

  • Trapped by Michael Northrop
  • Science Fair Season by Judy Dutton
  • The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

  • Oooo, I am dying to read Trapped, it looks so good.

    ALSO UGLIES AND SLOPPY FIRSTS both excellent books.

    I have Leaving Paradise and Jellicoe Road too on my owned TBR. I hope you get to them and enjoy them, cuz now I am slightly more curious if they are any good than before. I mean, I have heard Jellicoe Road was good but it doesn’t hurt to have more opinions.

    • I read Trapped yesterday; it was really good. It had a delightfully conversational narrator, which I enjoy. It will also make you extremely paranoid if you are reading during a snowstorm.

      I’ll be reviewing it soon-ish.

      Will let you know what I think of Leaving Paradise and Jellicoe Road when I get to them! I’ve heard good things about both. I caved and got Jellicoe at my Indie because it was on sale there.

  • Great bunch of books! I hope you enjoy Uglies, I read it last year and the series is pretty good, a bit disappointing but very interesting right until the very end. 😀 Happy reading!
