In My Mailbox #67

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.

*It's been a few weeks since I've done IMM. I've been traveling a lot. I may forget a few of the books I've received, but I'll try to add them in future weeks.

Bought


Plum Wine by Angela Davis-Gardner

*Purchased for Book Club. Finished the other day. Meh. I wouldn't bother. But next month we're reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman, which I'm very excited to read.

Won


Mistwood by Leah Cypess

*I've already read and loved this book. I won an annotated copy of it - with two chapters that Leah handwrote notes in. It's so awesome! Thanks Leah!

  33. I'm listening to the audiobook of Insatiable right now! I'm on the fence about it, though. It's not bad, but I'm crazy about Lucien. Still, Meg Cabot usually pulls through.

    I loved Cinder--hope you do too!

  34. You have some great books this week. I have heard lots of great things about Cinder and I still need to get a copy myself.
