In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by The Story Siren
In My Mailbox is a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

As it's getting closer to Christmas, I've been trying to reduce my amount of book swapping as I fear that the books may not get into the hands of their recipients very quickly, thanks to the busy postal service. Nevertheless, it's still early December and so I've sent some books out and received these in return (and all in brand new condition!):

The Kite Runner Graphic Novel - I've never actually read a graphic novel as they don't really appeal to me all that much. However, I absolutely adored Hosseini's original novel and so I couldn't really go wrong with trying this one out - at least the storyline is something that I know I will enjoy!

Forever - If I'm being honest, I didn't enjoy Shiver or Linger, but I'm still a sucker for pretty covers and I feel as though, seeing as I plodded through the first two, that I should read this one. It's not something I'm expecting to enjoy but at least I'll have read the conclusion to the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy.

Vanished - This is two books in one - When Lightening Strikes & Code Name Cassandra. I read the first two books in Cabot's 'The Mediator' series earlier this year and whilst I didn't find them fantastic, they were easy enough reads. I've heard a lot of good things about Cabot and I'm hoping this series will be fun to read.

It's Not Summer Without You - This is the second in the Summer trilogy and I'm really excited about getting around to reading it. I've had the first book in this trilogy on my bookshelf for some time now, but I've not picked it up yet. However, I read Han's stand alone book, Shug, earlier this year and loved it. Hopefully these books will be just as good or even better!

Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts - I admit it, I only really wanted this one for it's wintery cover. I'm not usually one for books about animals, even though I have a lot of pets, but I'm hoping this will be an easy to read piece of chick-lit.

This is the one book I've purchased this week. I've never heard of the book or the author before, but as it was only £1 brand new, I couldn't help but pick it up. There's a comparison to Jodi Picoult on the cover and as I really enjoy her books, that can't be a bad thing.

That's all for this week!


  1. Nice! Forever was pretty good! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  2. Great IMM! I really like the Mercy Falls trilogy, but I haven't read Forever yet--I don't know what I'm waiting for. I hope you like Jenny Han's Summer trilogy. It's Not Summer Without You is my favorite in the series. Happy reading!

  3. Nice books this week. I met Maggie at a signing the other month and she was brilliant. Love her books!!!

    Happy reading.

  4. Oh! I love the covers of those Summer Books, I didn't love the US versions but I like the ones you posted!

    Also, I hope you like Vanished, I love that series =) And Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts looks cute :D

  5. I need to read Forever! I loved Shiver and Linger but I just haven't gotten around to reading Forever yet!

  6. Cool IMM! Following you back.:)Your blog is cute, btw.

  7. I'm struggling through Linger lately and I just don't know where I will be headed with the series. I hope you enjoy everything you got :)

  8. Looks like a lovely mailbox there! :D I do want to give Forever a try one day, and Meg Cabot is on my list of authors to look into as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. I have similar thoughts for the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. I read Shiver and thought it was okay, nothing great. But since so many people absolutely love the books, I've decided to read the second one...

  10. You got some great books this week! Forever!! Lucky you. Some people didn't really enjoy the first two, but I thought they were great. And the cover is gorgeous! Can't wait to read it :) Thanks for sharing, thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!
