In My Mailbox (28)

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

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

Library Stash

Sapphique by Catherine Fisher
-Can't wait to get to this!

The Radleys by Matt Haig

Fruits Basket vols. 22 & 23
-I'm going to finish the series!!!

Vampire Knight vols. 5-11
-I'm going to get as current with the series as I can
-So excited that my library happened to have all of these just on the shelf

Library CD Stash

Hair - Original Broadway Cast
-I saw this show a few months ago and loved it. The music was great, but I most loved the atmosphere of the play. The cast came out into the audience repeatedly and I even shook hands with Claude (a main character) while he was singing! They handed out carnations and brochures to a Peace-In. Definitely not a show for kids or the easily offended, but it was really well-done.

Phantom Of The Opera - Original Broadway Cast
-I own the cassette tape of this, but wanted to listen to the CD.


  1. Oh what a fun week you had Alison! Looking forward to your thoughts on Sapphique, I think the world building in those books is amazing, a bit complicated at times, but really cool. And how much do I love The Phantom of the Opera? One of my all time favorites:)

  2. Fun stash. Vampire Knight keeps getting weirder. =\

  3. I really hope you enjoy the last couple of volumes of Fruits Basket, Alison. :) It's such a wonderful series, I recommend it to all first-time manga readers. And I look forward to hearing what you have to say about Sapphique. Happy reading!

  4. Oooh, Fruits Basket! I've only watched the anime, and loved it, but I really need to read & see how it ends! Happy reading. =)

  7. Wow you have had a busy week collecting books and Cd's. In my mailbox this week were The Hunger Games Trilogy and Before I Fall.

  8. Love the music from Phantom--it's always what I listen to when I need to chill out and relax.

    I can't wait to read Sapphique too!

  9. I'm a Phantom fanatic! LOVE the soundtrack :)

  10. I liked Sapphique. I hope you enjoy it too! Great books and music this week :) The Phantom of the Opera is a favorite.

  17. I really want to read SAPPHIQUE and the series in general. I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading, you've got some great titles!

    Check out what's IMM this week!

  18. I would love to read some Manga books! There's a huge collection at my library. Fun CD's! I've never seen Hair, but I have seen Phantom (not on Broadway). It was excellent. I loved the movie, too. Here's my IMM. Enjoy your books and music!

  19. I can't wait to read your review of Sapphique !! I've heard it was awesome !! Enjoy ;)

  20. I absolutely love the music from "Phantom". I also have Sapphique on my wish list. Looking forward to your review. Happy Reading!

  21. Hey Allison! Great book haul. Enjoy!!

  22. I know i have to start to read The Phantom of the Opera, but since my TBR books pile is growing uncontrolable, maybe I'll read it asap.

    Newest Follower. :)

  23. I really want to read your review for Sapphique! I quite enjoyed Incarceron, despite my confusion through much of it :)

    Great haul, Alison!

  24. Not a manga fan but my little sis loves them. Both Fruits Basket and Vampire Knight look fun...happy reading :)

  25. I still have to read Incarceron! I thought it was a trilogy, but now that I know the story ends in Sapphique I think I'm going to try to pick them up soon. They sound like my type of book.

    I'll be looking forward to your review of The Radleys. I get a very Shirley Jackson vibe from the cover/plot for some reason.

    I looove The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack! Very nice mailbox you have this week :)


I love comments. I appreciate every one! Thank you in advance.
