In My Mailbox - 2

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. A post where we share books acquired via your mailbox, library, store, etc.

You can find out more information on how to setup your own In My Mailbox here. Make sure and add yourself to The Story Siren's Mr. Linky to share the books you've recently received.

Below is a list of books I've acquired this past week. Can't wait to dip into them.

Borrowed:



Kit's Wilderness by David Almond
-because of the Top Teen Books list I saw on The Page Flipper - I found that I only read 25% of the list. I want to catch up on what I've been missing.
-My book review

A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
-because of the Top Teen Books list again and it looks like a good murder mystery
-My book review




The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti
-because the book covers catch my eye and I wanted to try out a Caletti based on all the good stuff I've been reading about her on other YA book blogs.

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
-because the 3rd book in the series, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover, is going to be released in June and the it looks like a fun spy series. And, she has a fun website.
-My book review



Nana v.3 by Ai Yazawa
-because I got hooked on this manga series last year and want to continue. It is about two young women named Nana who move to Tokyo to start their lives. One Nana want to be a rock star and the other Nana is still finding her way.
-My book review

Vampire Knight v. 3 Matsuri Hino
-because I got hooked on this manga series also last year. It is about Cross Academy that is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. Oh yeah, Night Class happens to be full of vampires.

The Diamonds by Ted Michael
-because of all the sparkly talk at The Story Siren
