In My Mailbox (52)

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.

For Review


Cracked by K.M. Walton


Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsay

*Thanks to Teen Book Scene for both books!


Water For Elephants DVD
*Thanks to Fox for giving me a review copy for an upcoming book/movie comparison! So excited!

  3. Oh I so want Shattered Souls. Would kill for it. Good books. A little jealous, but in a good way. Come check out my mailbox over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  4. I am obsessed with the BDB books! I was just thinking of re-reading them. Very jealous of Cracked. I've requested it to review it, but I don't think I am going to get it. I hope that you enjoy your new books!

  5. I can't believe they gave you a DVD ! How awesome. I read Water for Elephants over the summer and I'm not sure if I want to see the movie. What with the animal cruelty and all.

    ReplyDelete
  6. When I first started up my blog, a friend suggested I read Water for Elephants - I haven't gotten a copy yet, though, because I don't like to have the movie covers for my books. I'm picky!

    I hear it's really great, though, so I hope I can find an edition with a non-movie cover soon.

  54. I see the BDB novels and I sign in contentment (is that even a word?), anywho, I loved Lover Eternal, and Lover Awakened, but there is something kind of special about Lover Revealed, even though it's not my favourite book of the series, and I didn't like the first time I read it, I love it now. So, enjoy!!

    Me and my sister have bought my mum Water for Elephants and I think she is still reading it :P And I kind of figure out that I prefer read the book first and then watch the movie. So I need to wait to my mum to finish it.
    I've heard a lot about Shattered Souls, so I think I will read soon too ;)

    I haven't read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series but a few of my friends have and really liked it, I should look more into that and see if I can fit it into my reading pile somewhere, there's nothing better than getting lost in a good series!

    Hope you love all your books, and enjoy the movie! :)
