In My Mailbox 29th May 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, where book bloggers can talk about the books they've gotten the past week- whether bought, borrowed, swapped or given for review. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and increase our awareness of all the new books coming out.
This week was another good week for me, I got...

Bought:
  • Entwined by Heather Dixon. This looks like a really good book, and one that I've wanted for a while. The Book Depository have still got their 10% off offer on so I just couldn't resist! But in June I'm honestly not going to buy any more books- really! (lets see how long that lasts!)
  • Wolves, Boys and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler. I like the look of this book too, about a loner girl who comes out of her shell and starts a romance while volunteering in a project studying the wolf packs in Yellowstone National Park.


Audiobooks:
  • Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon. I just know that it's YA, romance, and some kind of supernatural. But it looks beautiful and eerie, and it's getting great reviews, and I'm looking forward to reading it. 
  • Evercrossed by Elizabeth Chandler. I really loved Kissed By An Angel so I was really pleased when I found out that there was going to be a sequel. I'm looking forward to reading about Ivy, Tristan and Will again.
  • The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. Horror in the woods- another zombie book :-)  It seems like a lot of people are reading this at the moment, but I love the sound of it.

These are from Audible- a company linked to Amazon. 

From the Library:
  • Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. This is another book that I never would have picked up without encouragement and recommendations from fellow bloggers. This is a story about an incestuous relationship between a brother and sister. I wasn't sure about whether I will like this one but I will give it a go.
  • Numbers by Rachel Ward. I hope to start reading this one soon- it's about a girl who can sense numbers in her head whenever she meets anyone new- it's the date when they will die. Out one day she senses that a tragedy is about to happen.
  • The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde. Dragons and magic spells (but don't forget to fill in magic release form B1-7g!) This authors writing is always very witty and funny- I ordered this one all the way back in October, but now it's finally come I don't know if I'll get a chance to read it. Too many books, not enough time!

For Review:
  • Gravity by Abbey Boyd. I like the sound of this book about a girl whose best friend goes missing, and after mysterious things start happening to her, she starts to wonder if she is being haunted. For review from the author with thanks.


Those were my books! Anyone read any of these? What did you think of them? What books did you get?
Happy reading!

  5. Great IMM this week! I really want to read Entwined. I read Forbidden. It is really good, despite the kind of relationship that it is about it. I am recommending it to everybody that I know! I hope you like it

    I so want to try audio books but they are very expensive, even if you sign up they are around £8!

  8. Great mailbox this week! :)

    I am reading Forbidden (as an egalley, unfortunately), and I really like it so far! I will probably have to get my hands on a finished copy of this one soon!

    Love the two books you bought! I've been wanting to read Entwined since I first saw it and I just love the title of 'Wolves, Boys and Other Things That Might Kill Me'!

    Hope you enjoy all the books you got this week! Happy reading!
