In My Mailbox 21st August 2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren

These are all the books I bought this past fortnight (I didn't do an IMM last week as I only had 2 books to show). Quite a mixture here- but some pretty good books, and all cheap, hence me breaking my book-buying ban yet again!


  • Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. This is the kind of book that I never would have picked up myself or even looked twice at, but it was receiving such high praise from everyone who read it that it made me really want this book! Now it has finally come out in paperback and a copy is mine!
  • 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson, another one that I never would have chosen for myself but kept being recommended to me by other bloggers. This was in the Amazon kindle sale and I'm really looking forward to reading it.
  • Looking For Alaska by John Green. I'm not totally sure what this is about but I do recognise the cover from seeing it about the blogs. It caught my eye in the Works bookshop and when books are that cheap I can't resist!
  • Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren (Book 1 in the River Of Time series) This is one series that I have really wanted to read for a while, I love time-travel stories and this one sounds really romantic as well. The fact that it is currently free for kindle sealed the deal for me!
  • Dead Kiss by Daniel Waters. This is a bind up of the high-school zombie books Generation Dead and Kiss Of Life which looks really good, and was practically nothing in my local supermarket.
Those were all the books I got. What did you get?
Happy reading!

  4. Hi Sally! Love your books!

    I got Anna and the French Kiss this week too! Hope I enjoy it as much as everyone else!

    I didn't rate 13 Little Blue Envelopes, but Generation Dead is great (haven't read the sequel yet!)

    Enjoy!

  6. I'm looking forward to reading Waterfall as well - I do love time travel stories! SOunds like a good haul - I've been thinking about Anna and the French Kiss as well - the reviews all seem to love it, but it's not my usual type of read! You have to let me know what you think! :)
