In My Mailbox (18)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for five months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.

I picked up a good set of books and CDs this week. I'm currently on vacation so I'm hoping to have loads of time to read. I just started the second Stieg Larsson book today and the fifth Harry Potter book.

Check out my new feature called What Books?, which will feature some of my favorite childhood books or current books in lots of different categories. This week I'm featuring my Favorite Ghost/Scary Stories from elementary and middle school.
