In My Mailbox 8th May 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where we can show off all the books we got our hands on during the week. This feature was started to increase interaction between bloggers and increase awareness of some of the new book titles coming out.
I didn't expect to get any books this week but it ended up that I got...

Bought:

  • Solid by Shelley Workinger (kindle edition). This looks like a good book and the reviews on blogs for it have been positive. It's about a camp of genetically modified teenagers. I entered every competition going to win a copy of this book but no such luck! It will probably take me a long while to get around to reading it as well (maybe the other books in the series will be out by then and I can read them all in one go).





Library:

  • My Soul To Keep by Rachel Vincent. This is book 3 in the Soul Screamers series and I liked the first 2 books so I'm looking forward to reading this one (although I've heard it gets a bit darker in this one? Anyone else read it?)







  • My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. This is a love story with reincarnation, about a guy named Daniel who remembers all his past lives with Lucy, where they keep falling in love and keep getting torn apart. (OK- anyone else, does this sound exactly like Fallen, even the names and the cover?!)






For Review:

  • Hereafter by Tara Hudson (due to be published 7th June). Gah!- I'm so excited to get this book about a spirit, Amelia, who can remember nothing about her life or death, but when she saves a boy from drowning in the river they start to uncover the mystery together.
For review from the publisher






Those were the books that I got this week! What did you get in your mailbox?
