In My Mailbox (58)

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.

  8. Great Mailbox! I haven't read the books by Joanna Philbin. Might give them a try.
    Love Florence and the Machine. Sometimes I don't like the songs I hear at first and then the more they play, the more they grow on me. I think I have to be in a quiet place to understand her music. But I love it!


  9. I've been hearing that Never Eighteen is such an emotional read, I'm really looking forward to reading that! *apparently likes my heart being torn out* Great books this week, hope you enjoy :)

  32. The premise for Never Eighteen makes me so sad. I don't think that is one I could get through without a box of tissues.

    Hope you enjoy.

  33. Thanks for the reminder that I wanted to put Florence's CD on my Xmas list. Also, I want to wear those dresses on that book cover. Wouldn't that be fun to go to a party all glammed up?
