In My Mailbox (25)

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

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

*I'm currently on vacation in the sunny Caribbean! This is a scheduled post (I sure hope it actually posts). I don't have Internet access so I won't be able to comment back as I usually try to do. Thanks for visiting though and hope you enjoy the review!

For Review

I cleaned up with Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab this week. I actually got the monthly newsletter a while back, but I'm just now getting to downloading the books. Nice vacation reading.


Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann


Red Glove by Holly Black (I can hardly contain my excitement for this one!)


Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell


Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis


Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Library Stash


Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow (Getting back to my history buff roots. Interesting but a little dry so far)

CD Stash


The King Is Dead by The Decemberists

-Probably my favorite band. I had to buy this as soon as it came out.
-Next week is the new Iron & Wine record! One of my other favorites. I'll be buying that one as soon as I get back from vacation.

  14. Happy Vacation!!! This is the second time I've seen Kat, Incorrigible. That cute little girl reminds me so much of Coraline! I'll be curious to hear what you think of Wither and Cryer's Cross. And if you're getting into presidential biographies, you should check out the Presidential Challenge at Lovely Little Shelf! (Even if you're not interested in the challenge, that's one of my new favorite blogs :)
