In My Mailbox #61

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.

Christmas Stash


Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James


Harry Potter Page to Screen by Bob McCabe


The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz

Secret Santa Gifts
*I had two great Secret Santas this year. I received:


Crave by Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz

Love Story by Jennifer Echols


The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver
*I actually got two copies of this - one from each Secret Santa. I'll probably give one of the copies away.

*One of my secret santas also gave me some adorable bookmarks, an apron, an I Love Vampires notepad, and an ornament. Thank you! I never did find out who my other secret santa was.

Matched by Ally Condie


Crossed by Ally Condie

*Thanks to Jenni Elyse!!!

Library Stash


Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein
*I suppose the author wouldn't like me saying that one of the main reasons I like this cover is because it's sparkly :-). Actually, it's very good. I'm about halfway through and it's given me a lot to think about.

  3. Ooh, I think I want to get Cinderella Ate My Daughter for a friend of mine. She's having a baby girl soon and she's mentioned that all the gifts she's been getting are of the pink and sparkly variety, which she likes, but is being overloaded by. I think she'll get a kick out of that book.

    ReplyDelete
  38. All of these books sound great! I got an ARC of Soul Thief but I haven't read it because I haven't read A Demon Trapper's Daughter. I really need to get on that. I've never heard of the manga series that you featured, but I'll have to check it out!

  50. HP Page to Screen!! I borrowed a copy from my library, but didn't end up finishing it before I returned. Definitely one I want to buy to keep, though. I loved Matched. Sadly Crossed didn't quite live up to expectations for me, but I'm excited for the third book. And I really want to read Love Story! I've heard great things about Jennifer's novels.

    Awesome mailbox, enjoy!

  57. Can you BELIEVE that I didn't get ANY books myself for Christmas? :( ... My daughters say that they won't buy me more books until the ones I have to read actually fit on the new bookshelf they bought me for my birthday last year ... little wankers!

    YOU, however, got a great stash! Woot! Matched and Crossed .. I ALMOST got those for Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn's book box, but ended up getting her the Fallen series instead :)

    Enjoy all of the lovely new reads!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lots of great books! I really enjoyed Matched, and I hope to read Crossed soon. I really want the Harry Potter book. Happy reading!

  68. Cinderella Ate My Daughter looks so fun! You got some awesome reads. I've only read one Jennifer Echols book, but it was great. I bet Love Story will be full of some good romance.
    Enjoy!

  69. I've been wanting to read Cinderella Ate My Daughter for a while now, though I figured I could put it off maybe until I actually have a daughter. I loved both Matched and Crossed, and would be willing to maim someone to get to look through the HP filming book at some point.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I haven't read the Demon Trapper's Daughter yet, but everyone seems to have great things to say about it. Harry Potter, from page to screen, I bet that is a very interesting book! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my IMM!!
