In My Mailbox #72

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.

Bought

 *I went to a great signing on Tuesday and bought three books. All are signed. I'll put up another post probably Monday talking about the signing. It was awesome. Best part was that I met Stephanie Perkins and Gayle Forman!!

The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour


Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Library Stash



The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

  5. I read If I Stay and really didn't like it so I stayed away from Where She Went.
    Hearing good things about The Catastrophic History of You and Me.
    Happy reading.

  6. The Catastrophic (..) was such a cute read! I loved it! I listened to the audiobook which was fantastic - one of the things I loved most were the 80s music quotes:) I'm such an 80s fangirl! Happy Sunday!

  22. Wow! You've some great books! Every time I see the cover for The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour it makes me want to be driving down old barely paved roads on the way to a swimming hole with the windows down, listening to the Cure, and drinking a coke. I LOVE that cover.
