In My Mailbox (44)


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

I'm Alison. I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.

Borrowed

This has been my lucky week. I was fortunate enough to receive copies of two of the books I'm most looking forward to from two different bloggers. I am so grateful!



Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
-Already finished and adored it. It's going to kill me to wait until next March for the next one. Two words: Sydney. Adrian.


Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
-Halfway through this one. I'm really enjoying it too. Like Anna and the French Kiss, it's one of those books that gets better as it goes on.

Purchased

Another lucky week. I got to meet Meg Cabot! She signed The Princess Diaries for me, which I am now giving away.

  61. I know I will buy Bloodlines but I am on the fence if I will devour it and be tortured until the next one OR just let it look pretty on my shelf until it gets closer to the next book :/
