In My Mailbox (59)

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.

Parents' Stash

I'm spending the week at home in Arizona with my parents. I raided their bookshelves for my books this week and found some awesome reads.



A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
*The third book in the Flavia de Luce mystery series


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
*Finished and really liked. I need to read it again to capture all the magic.


The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
*Just getting started with this. Good so far.

CD Stash


The Harrow and the Harvest by Gillian Welch
*So in love with this album. Check out my favorite song:

  2. I listened to The Night Circus on audio and immediately wanted to re-read the book (which I do have). It's definitely going to get a re-read in the new year!

  13. I also received a copy of ERin Morgenstern's The Night Circus for review - after I have bought my own copy. So now, I have two! Haha. I haven't started on this one yet, I have a feeling I'd be hooked once I start opening that page. I'm still currently buried in novels-in-verse (our theme for the month). You do have awesome titles this week.

    Here's my IMM this week:

  50. Haha, my mom used to be hetero romance fiction junkie back in the 90s and early 2000s, so she has boxes and boxes full of romance novels. Because she's more into male romance fiction she hardly ever sifts through those boxes anymore and I would love to raid them and pick them apart until I find stuff I like and want to read.

    Oh, and I've been hearing nothing but extraordinary things about The Night Circus, and I'm hoping to read it soon.

    Have an amazing reading week, Alison!
