In My Mailbox (48)

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

I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.

  4. Nice!

    I was tempted to get Virtuosity as well, but I can't bear to read another thing on my kindle. I'll wait for the book to come out.

    Enjoy!

  24. Libraries are awesome. I think of them as extensions of my own bookshelves and I particularly like the thought of them "holding on" to an old favorite that I love rereading over and over.

  32. I really enjoyed Virtuosity. I'm a sucker for books that revolve around music.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I really like the Caster Chronicles too. That reminds me that I need to read the short story before Beautiful Chaos comes out. I like the sound of the Mother Daughter Book Club series. I haven't read them yet but I should give them a try!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ooooh I hope you enjoy Virtuosity! I *loved* that book!

  46. Gosh beautiful creatures and beautiful darkness are sitting there waiting to be read. But beautiful creatures is so big and intimidating... what if I don't like it... Maybe I'll be inspired by the fact that you're re-reading beautiful darkness... Hope you enjoy your bookies.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I still havent read beautiful darkness yet. I need to dig into this book. Enjoy it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. If you're already re-reading Beautiful Darkness, it sounds like I really need to hurry up and pick up Beautiful Creatures ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Cool books! I saw a different cover for Virtuosity on someone else's blog, sort of like the cover to the Iron Witch. Book look cool I guess. :) Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Good idea rereading Beautiful Darkness before Chaos comes out! They are such complex stories, I doubt I will remember everything that happened in the last one!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I keep meaning to get hold of Beautiful Darkness as I loved Beautiful Creatures. I think I may have to reread the first one too! Amazing books, but man is there a lot of story there.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hadn't heard of the Mother Daughter Book Club before, but it sounds fun. And I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Virtuosity! Looks good.
