In My Mailbox #64

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.

  7. I had Starcrossed from the library and didn't read it in time. I keep wanting to get to it. The cover is so pretty and I have heard a lot of good reviews. I also want Statistical Probability. Looks really cute and another one that I have heard nothing but amazing things about.

  40. I think I'm going to go buy Statistical Probability after all. I saw it at my "cheap" store and the story is just too cute. I had an experience similar to that when I was in college and I loved to see how this story ends :) Starcrossed just looks beautiful but Goodreads is being cranky right now so I'll just have to look it up later (grrrr, goodreads).

    Have a great week, girlie!!! Kristin @myparahangover

  47. So glad you LOVED the Statistical Prob.!!! It just makes me so happy when people say good things about it because I fell so deep for the story.

    And I really need to get my own copy of Starcrossed. I may have been in the minority who DIDN'T LOOOVE it, but I liked it enough to look forward to the sequel. Plus, let's be real, those covers are totally worth buying for.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  112. I actually really liked the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird :) We watched it in school when we read the book, and it's a pretty good book-to-movie adaptation, although honestly, I think years ago they paid a lot more attention to the book itself when they did adaptation than they do now. :P

    Awesome mailbox this week Alison! I hope you enjoy your movie and all of your fabulous books! :D
