In My Mailbox #69

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.

Won


By A Thread by Jennifer Estep

*Thanks to Jenny of Supernatural Snark and Jennifer Estep! Now I have to read the whole series.

Bought


Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

*Great deal on Amazon! $3.99 for the Kindle version. I've already read this, but I'm excited to now own it.

Library Stash



The Fault in Our Stars by John Green


Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

*I'm about 200 pages into this book. To my surprise, I can't put it down. I really want to start the John Green book, but I am totally engrossed by Steve Jobs.


Where Things Came Back by John Corey Whaley

  40. I'm so surprised that the Steve Jobs book is so engrossing. It always seemed like it would be boring to me, but all reviews seem to suggest otherwise. Great books this week!

  83. I've wanted to read: The Scorpio Races, The Fault in Our Stars, and the Steve Jobs books for months, but I couldn't buy The fault in Our Stars because hardcover books are so expensive here so I might have to wait until the paperback one comes out, and I never bought the other two because I don't want to take the risk o not liking them.

    And thanks for stopping by for Follow Friday.

  96. YES to The Scorpio Races and TFiOS. I haven't read the rest of these (though I've heard fantastic things about Where Things Come Back), but The Scorpio Races was phenomenal, and TFiOS . . . well, it's my favorite book. It also made me cry more than anything fictional ever has before. I really hope you enjoy these. :)

  105. I STILL have to read Jennifer's Mythos Academy series. I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm clearly only hurting myself, because this is ridiculous. I should've been done read it.

    AND The Scorpio Races. I really love Maggie's writing so I can't, for the life of me, understand why I haven't read this one already. A mistake I have to rectify immediately. I have The Fault in Our Stars siting here... waiting... VERY patiently to be read. I'm hoping to get to it this week!

    Have an amazing reading week!
