In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.
Today (July 31) is my husband's birthday. Happy birthday!
What better way to celebrate a birthday than with books. My husband loves thrillers (Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, etc) and fantasy (Fabelhaven series, Ranger's Apprentice). I picked out a Daniel Silva book and two YA thrillers. I want to read the YA books; I've heard good things about them.
Silverfin (Young Bond) by Charlie Higson
Maximum Ride by James Patterson
The Defector by Daniel Silva
Wings by Aprilynne Pike (almost done; very good)
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (Wahoo!!!)
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
The Ghost And The Goth by Stacey Kade
Dear Pen Pal (Mother Daughter Book Club #3) by Heather Vogel Frederick
CD Of The Week
Neon Bible by Arcade Fire

Fantastic books you have there!ReplyDelete
Lucky you for having a library near you that has an updated selection of YA books - libraries here in my country are kind of... err.. outdated..

Great books this week! Happy reading to your and your husband :)ReplyDelete
I have Linger on hold at the library - I can't wait til I get it.ReplyDelete
Ahh I wish my library had some of those great books! And hope you enjoy Maximum Ride- they're some of the first thrillers I've ever read, and pretty darn good!ReplyDelete
Ah, nice books! I haven't read them myself, but from what I hear, they're all great. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
You should read Light of Asteria-- it is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Love the music feature :) I just got The Ghost and the Goth this week too, i also need to hurry up and read Sisters Read. It's awesome that your library got it in already!ReplyDelete
paranormalcy--she actually says bleep in place of swear words( bleep) its quite cute actually.ReplyDelete
Nice books this week! I haven't heard of those YA thrillers, but I've heard of Maximum Ride before. I'd like to hear what you think of Sisters Red. The cover looks so pretty, but I'm a little hesitant.ReplyDelete
On my blog, you asked me about the book covers I get, and my answer is: mostly US, however sometimes I prefer the UK covers so I opt for them instead...or in the way of contests it's all just a big surprise! Australia does get their own covers some of the time, but they take TOO LONG to release, and it's not worth the wait anyway.
i'm reading sisters red - good so far. I loved linger tooReplyDelete
Great books! Enjoy reading them.ReplyDelete
My first IMM post-
There are some great books in your mailbox! Have fun reading them all :)ReplyDelete
hey Allison! I did really enjoy Gone and I don't particularly care for dystopian books either. :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower! You asked what some of my favorite mangas are and here's a list:
Fruits Basket (was my first manga. will always be my favorite)
One Piece (love love the characters in this one)
:) That's just a few. Do you like mangas?
I'm a new follower :)
I loved both Maximum Ride and Wings--great picks!ReplyDelete
Hi again :)ReplyDelete
Yeah i really loved the Fruits Baskets series. The ending is very satisfying.
I really like your idea for that Manga Monday. Would you mind if maybe I started one like that on my blog?
You look like you have a very full mailbox. :)ReplyDelete
Wings and Maximum Ride are great books. Maximum Ride is a really addicting series--make sure you have the sequels at the ready! :)ReplyDelete
I LOVE Silverfin & Young James Bond. Hope you like it!ReplyDelete
