In My Mailbox #68

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.

*This has been an unusually lucky week. I'm so grateful!

  10. I'm so worn out from hyperventilating over other people's copies of Immortal Rules, that I think I'll pass out if I do it again here. But the shock and pleasure and envy doesn't seem to fade away though. Gosh, I wish. Please enjoy it for the both of us!

    Hallowed is so deeply, perfectly emotional and lovely, and I have yet to read The Summer I Turned Pretty, though I have it on my shelf, but I've heard great things about the series :)

    Have an amazing reading week!

  52. I'm really jonesing for the next Gallagher girls book. I'm such a glutton for punishment too because lord knows I have so much to read! I do need more music (not really, but as a singer this is never a bad thing). I want Jessie J to come out with a new CD and I need the Goo Goo entire anthology along with Kate Voegele's newest venture. Not asking for much right?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Looks like a great selection! I've heard lots of good things about The Summer I Turned Pretty, hope you enjoy them all!

  63. Hi! I love that you're posting music here, too! 'Wonderstruck' looks amazing - I just recently saw the film 'Hugo,' so I've been wanting to read some Brian Selznick novels. And thank you for the follow! You have a great blog (and you post manga!!!), so I'm definitely following back via GFC!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am so jealous about The Immortal Rules. I loved her Iron Fey series, and the synopsis for TIR looks really good. Post-apocalypse and vampires...what's not to like. And I just finished Hallowed, which I loved. Although I must say it took a bit for me to get into it. Thanks for stopping by!

    I saw The Cults on concert (they were the opening band) they were really good and had a cool, creepy silent movie playing in the background. lol
