In My Mailbox (18)

Posted by

“In My Mailbox” is a meme, created by Kristi at The Story Siren, that features books I have

received/ purchased/ borrowed during the week. 
Know what I’m doing? I’m writing my IMM post while watching Gossip Girl (trying to catch up on this season)! How’s that for a fabulous life? Teehee. Isn’t Chuck awesome!! So I hope you all had a good week. In case you missed it, I was interviewed over at One A Day YA if you’re interested in knowing a bit about my favorite reads of 2011. Now, let’s see my haul this week.

I got for review (click on cover for Goodreads):

I want to thank TP Boje and Random House Children’s Books for the review copies.

I bought:

Yep, I think it’s about time I get on the bandwagon and check out Across the Universe, huh!?

Anything good in your mailbox this week?
Leave me a link I’ll go take a look!

    I’m so excited for Lies Beneath – it looks so good! I just ordered my copy of Cinder and can’t wait for it to get here. And I can’t believe you haven’t read Across the Universe!

    Hi Giselle, I also love Gossip Girl. I have a thing though for Nate Archibald rather than Chuck. 🙂

    Good on you for getting physical copies of Cinder and Across the Universe which I have been seeing in quite a number of mailboxes the past few weeks. Enjoy your new reads. I was particularly taken by the book cover of The Wednesdays. Sounds intriguing!

    Here’s my IMM for the week:

    Across the Universe! How awesome! I loved it and I hope you do too. I’m still think whether I should pick up Cinder or not. I want to read Starters and Lies Beneath! SO lucky.

    You got plenty of awesome book Giselle! I really hope you love them all <3 :]

    I should probably jump on the bandwagon too – I haven’t read Across the Universe yet :c But yay for Lies Beneath! I hope you’ll enjoy them 🙂

    Here’s my IMM for this week.

    Starters and Lies Beneath have caught my interest. I loved Across the Universe and need to pick up the second one sometime soon. I also need to read Cinder. (There’s a lot of books I need to read.) Great haul this week!

    I just read Across The Universe recently, and I LOVED it!! I hope you enjoy it too! I have Cinder waiting for me, I look forward to hearing your thoughts once you’ve read it!

    Lies Beneath!! So awesome. I can’t wait to dig into it myself. And Cinder is awesome <3 Oh and I'm of course super curious about Rot & Ruin and Across the Universe! Enjoy. 🙂

    My IMM!

  13. Anjana Vasan

    I bought Across the Universe 2 weeks ago and still haven’t read it 😛 I already bought A Million Suns too! You have to read Cinder asap! You’d love it, I think. I got Lies Beneath this week too but there’s some time for it’s release so I don’t think I’m gonna read that one right away.

    My Mailbox –

  14. Book Chelle

    Great haul! I can’t wait to read Lies Beneath. Killer Mermaids?! Gah! And I think you’ll love Cinder as well as Across the Universe! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on those.

    My IMM

  15. Karen

    Oh, jealousy! I can’t wait to read Lies Beneath & Starters. And I’ve been meaning to pick up Rot & Ruin for ages and just haven’t gotten around to it. I’ll be curious to see what you think of it!



    That should be your first read. Though I haven’t read the others yet. But, I have to say ATU is so good and it will leave you with your mouth hanging open so you might as well get A Million Suns! Of course, that will also leave your mouth hanging open!


  17. Lena

    Don’t worry I haven’t read Across the Universe yet either… I actually ordered A Million Suns and is waiting for that. Cinder looks good too!
    Great IMM!

    You already looked at my IMM. hehe thanks!

  18. Dominique

    Ahh!! It seems like everyone’s getting Lies Beneath! It sounds so good–can’t wait for your review! 😀

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Happy reading!

    I’ve heard good things about Rot and Ruin but haven’t read it yet. I can’t wait to read Cinder though!!

    Happy reading!

  20. Ashley

    I really want to scoop up Across the Universe myself! Lies Beneath and Starters have such great covers! I’d be interested to hear what you think of Lies Beneath. That one sounds really interesting.

    Thanks so much for contributing to my TBR list! Clockwork Angel I have already picked up and am excited to give a try. I added Divergent and Daughter of Smoke and Bone to it also!

  21. Katelyn

    I am so happy you are finally going to read Across the Universe! I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Have fun reading all your new books 😀

  22. Kat

    Lies Beneath looks like such an interesting book! 🙂

    And I still need to read Across the Universe, surprisingly. \: I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t!

    Happy reading! 🙂

    Wow! Lies Beneath looks gorgeous. *goes to goodreads for summary*
    I’ve heard a TON about Cinder but haven’t personally read it yet. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

    Thanks so much for the comment on our blog! I really appreciate it! You’re so sweet!

    Great stuff! I think you timed it just right with Across the Universe since A Million Suns just came out 🙂 I’ve been seeing Lies Beneath everywhere. I just might have to check it out. I really liked Cinder. Hope you do to! Thanks for stopping by.

  25. Candace

    I liked Across the Universe but it’s definitely very different and slightly weird. But I think different is almost always good! I need to order a finished copy of Cinder, I loved that book so much! Lots of good ones!

  26. Chrissy

    Nice IMM. I own Across the Universe, but haven’t read it yet. After hearing people’s reactions of A Million Suns, I almost want to wait till the third one is out next year. 😀
