In My Mailbox #2


In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren. This week, I got the following books:

From the library:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Modelland by Tyra Banks (for a joint review with Lisa from Read. Breath. Relax)

For review:
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel (Thank you, Random House and NetGalley)

I love my library and not that long ago, I got almost all my books from there. Then I discovered NetGalley and Simon & Schuster Galley Grab and could not resist getting a lot of books from these two awesome outlets which left me little time to read anything else. Unfortunately, I have been neglecting my library and so I am now trying to request less ARCs and borrow more library books. It will be hard but I am off to a great start this week and have even pushed Daughter of Smoke and Bone to the top of my list. I am half-way through it and so far, it is really good. What did you get in your mailbox?

You must have a seriously awesome library to get new releases like that. My library SUCKS! They don't ever get new YA releases, and you can't request a book from another library unless it's been released for 6 MONTHS! So yeah...I usually avoid my library like the plague. haha

Hope you enjoy DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. And please, when you're done with the UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER, just tell me what the big twist is on the last page. I don't want to read the book; I just want to know what the big twist is. haha

Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer are aaaaamaaazing books. ♥ They're definitely part of my favorites-list for 2011! So I really hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did.

Have a lovely week,

P.s.: I'm so jealous of everyone with a good library. Since I'm living in Germany there are almost no good English Young Adult titles availbale in my library. :(

I LOVED Dearly, Departed. I thought it was an awesome book. I wish my library was up on the new books. It still hasn't gotten Hush Hush #3 in yet but they carry the other two. :\

LOVED Daughter of Smoke & Bone AND Dearly, Departed!!!

My library is pretty good about keeping up with new releases, although they do not have Mara Dyer or Smoke & Bone yet! I'm like you, I'm a huge library-user. LOVE IT. Great bunch of books!

I'm reading Dearly, Departed now, and so far so good. I wish my library carried books that I actually WANT to read.

Ok, I JUST bought The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and am halfway through (all read in one night). It's really, really good! I can't wait for you to read it!

Also, Dearly, Departed was on one of my WoW's, so I can't wait to see what you think!
