In My Mailbox (39)

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

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for....

ONE YEAR!!!!


My blogoversary was June 4!

I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.

I haven't done IMM in a few weeks, so I have a number of books to report. I may forget a few, but this is most of them.

  8. Congratulations on your anniversary, Alison! :D I'm super happy to see Waterfall and Cascade on your list. I have nothing but love for this series so I hope you enjoy it, too! And Game of Thrones! I lovelovelove the show, and I have the book, but I've been so slow at reading it. The show is already ahead so I might just wait until the season is over to read it (and the other books in the series). LONG COMMENT IS LONG. :P Happy reading!

  12. Miss Peregrews sure has a creepy cover, I'm guessing a horror novel?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations on your blogoversary! Gives me a lot of hope when I see what can be accomplished in a year.

    I also am determined to tackle A Game of Thrones - although the length makes me nervous - but I'm going to wait until the current series is over.

  21. Happy Blogoversary! :D
    You have an awesome mailbox! Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs sounds really good. And you bought A Game of Thrones! Great choice! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  22. I absolutely loved City of Fallen Angels. I can't wait for the next book, City of Lost Souls to come out. If you liked the first three, you'll love this one too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! You got some amazing books this week! I really want to read Stupid Fast and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

  25. Thanks for stopping by at {book} exhibitionism

    I'm falling in love with your blog this instant. :D Your IMM's looking fab! I read CoFA and liked it, then read it again and didn't like it at all, idk, I hope you're enjoying it better. ;) And the Fever Series is soooo good!

    The rest's looking awesome, too, so HAPPY READING!

  26. YAY FOR ONE YEAR OF BLOGGING!!!! Awesome:)

    And couldn't you have just screamed with the cliffhanger of Faefever? Wait till you get to Dreamfever, you'll be so glad that Shadowfever is already out. I almost died having to wait. Seriously:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Happy Blogoversary!

    Great list of books this week. I need to read the Fever series. I've got DarkFever but haven't read it yet. The Lisa Bergren books sound really interesting. I've read her fiction for adults but haven't tried the YA books yet. I liked City of Fallen Angels but it wasn't as good as the earlier books. The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth looks fascinating. I ordered it for my library but I haven't had the opportunity to read it yet. I was definitely a "band geek" in high school as well as other kinds of geek (I was also on the scholastic team so that made me an academic geek too!) :)

  79. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY! *Feeds you a cake, douses you with sparkles, and throws confetti in the air while laughing hysterically*

    Ahem. Sorry, am I scaring you?

    Great books this week! I've been seeing STUPID FAST so much lately that I might have to give it a try. I'm not normally into sports books but I suppose it wouldn't hurt :)

    Happy reading and congratulations again on one year of blogging! Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  80. OMG Absolutely love the Fever series. I'm on number 4 and have stopped there...I am in that in between place where I so badly want to know how it all ends but also so badly don't want it all to end.

    ReplyDelete
  81. It took me a while to get into City of Fallen Angels too. Great books...hope you enjoy them!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I like the covers for Waterfall and Cascade by Lisa Bergren. I must really buy and read 'the Mortal Instruments' series too. Soon, definitely soon. Happy reading!

  83. They all look so good, I loved chibi vampire!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Congrats on the one year Allison! I loved Waterfall and I just got Cascade this past week, I can't wait to read it! I hope you really like the series too! I've heard Stupid Fast is really funny. Enjoy all your wonderful books!

    BTW about the comment you left. Most of the author like Keirsten White, Ally Condie, and Aprilynne Pike actually all live in UT. So does James Dashner, Elana Johnson and Bree Despain. Just an FYI, since I'm sure you'll be going to a lot of YA events when you move there. Hopefully you'll like it more then you think. :D

  122. The Geeks sounds very interesting. It is so true that the outsiders and geeks become the employed successful people as adults.

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