In My Mailbox (54)

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.

Tune in Tuesday for the start of Totally Twilight! A month of Twilight related posts in honor of the release of Breaking Dawn Part 1 on November 18.


Grab the Totally Twilight Button!





For Review





The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell
*Thanks to Teen Book Scene


There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones
*Thanks to NetGalley
*I'm about 50 pages in. It's cute so far.

Bought



F In Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson

*I picked this up randomly at a gift shop. Ten minutes later I had tears streaming down my cheeks and was reading every entry to my husband - barely able to get through them because I was laughing so much.

Here are my favorites so far:

Q: What is Sir Francis Drake known for?

A: Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot clipper.

Q. What was the main industry in Persia?

A. Cats

  6. Nice Haul! I could probably write one of those F in Exams books. Mine would be called excuses to tell your Undergrad Advisor when you fail out for the semester.

  8. F in Exams sounds like my kind of book. Will look out for that book here. Last time I had that experience with a book (literally laughing aloud with tears streaming down my cheeks) was around a month ago while I was reading Roald Dahl's Vicar of Nibbleswicke. I'm in for that kind of satisfying read. Haha.

    Here's my IMM for the week:
