In My Mailbox 24th April 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where we can show off what books we have received throughout the week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped, library, or given for review.
This week I got to read...

From the Library
  • Matched by Ally Condie- I've been on a waiting list for this book for months, so I'm glad that it's finally here. This is a YA dystopian novel where "Officials" decide who people love, how many children they will have and where they will work.
  • Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon- Mermaids and princesses (but it's classed as adult fiction- not childrens). Plus how gorgeous is the cover!

                         

From Swapping

  • Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles- This sounds fantastic, all of my Goodreads friends who have read it have loved it. About a high-school girl with a perfect life who starts to fall for a gang member from the wrong side of town.

So those were the books that I got this week. What did you get in your mailbox?
Happy reading!
