In My Mailbox (83)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Sadly the only books I order are those that are hard to find. The following books are from the library and bookstores.


Won:
Exodus (Exodus, 1) by Julie Bertagna, 2002. Published by Macmillan Children's Books.
I am really excited about winning Exodus. What really made me want to enter to win this book was that I was intriqued by the synopsis, especially when I read that the world would be one nearly unrecognizable to us (technology doesn't work anymore...creepy).

A huge thanks goes out to MyKindaBook.

Hold Still by Nina LaCour, 2009. Published by Dutton Juvenile.
While Hold Still isn't something I would normally read, I am looking forward to giving it a go. Especially since both Melissa of YA BookShelf and ZG of Crackin' Spines & Takin' Names say that it's a incredible read.

A huge thanks goes out to Melissa of YA BookShelf

The Lost Saint  (The Dark Divine, 2) *signed Despain, 2010. Published by Edgmont USA.
I must have had a mind blank, because I didn't even realize that I had won two copies of The Lost Saint. No worries though because it has already found a new home.

A huge thanks goes out to Angela of Dark Faerie Tales

Review:
Deceived by the Others (H&W Investigations, 3) ARC by Jess Haines, July 5, 2011. Published by Zebra.
Dceived by the Others has to be the biggest surprise that I got in the mail this week. I totally wasn't expecting it! A very big thank you goes out to Jess Haines for sending along a copy for review.
Borrowed:

Beauty Pop 1 by Kiyoko Arai, 2005. Published by Viz Media.
I already had the chance to read Bauty Pop and let me just tell you it was great. I loved Kiri, she was so funny and just such a greatt character.

The Gentlemen's Alliance †, Vol. 1 by Arina Tanemura, 2006. Published by Viz Media.
I haven't had a chance to start on this one yet, but it sounds like its going to be really good.

I'd like to send out a huge thanks to M, one of the nicest librarians I've ever met. She has been so nice as to let me borrow (again) a couple of her personal mangas (there aren't very many in the library system and she knows how much Ienjoy reading them).

  6. Exodus sounds good, I hadn't heard of it before (or maybe it was a different cover?). Hold Still was really good! And TLS was pretty good too.
    Oh, and I haven't read Jess Haines' books, but they are on my WL!
