In My Mailbox 26th June 2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.
It's been another good week for me- here is what I bought, borrowed and blagged this week...



  • Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I had seen this book about the blogosphere but hadn't really paid too much attention to it. I had wrongly assumed that it was a non-fiction book and wouldn't really be my sort of thing. Then I saw Amber's review at Down The Rabbit Hole and immediately HAD to have this book. As soon as I got my hands on it, I flicked through the genuine odd photos throughout the book which have been used to tell the story. I just love the creepy floating girl on the cover.
  • Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers. High-school bitchiness, this has been getting some fantastic reviews.
  • On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. Again, everyone is raving about this book, so I have to read it!

  • The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan. A Companion novel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth which I am reading now and loving. Zombies!   :D
  • The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan. The sequel to The Dead- Tossed Waves.
  • Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. This sounds like so much fun- 50 pampered beauty queens are stranded on a desert island after a plane crash and left to fend for themselves. At first glance it looks like she has ammunition strapped across her, but it is actually a row of different coloured lipsticks!
These are from a company linked to Amazon.

From the Library:

  • Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I absolutely loved If I Stay so I really want to read this one to find out what happens next to Mia and Adam. I'm going to read this one next!
  • Die For Me by Amy Plum. Supernatural romance set in Paris. I love the sound of this book, and want to read this one next as well! Also, how gorgeous is this cover?!
Those were the books I got this week. What did you get?
Happy reading!
