In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where you talk about the books you bought/received during the week.

Can I start off by saying I am so sorry that I haven't updated in so long! I've been super busy and I haven't had much access to a computer for a few months. I've still been reading like crazy though and now that I have a new computer expect lots of posts from me! Now, onto the books!


Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan: I saw this sitting on the shelf and was instantly reminded of Across The Universe by Beth Revis. I already knew that some people were comparing it to that book so I was a bit hesitant to pick it up because I've tried and failed to get into Across The Universe earlier in the year, but so far I am totally captivated by the story so fingers crossed that I love it as much as I want to! And can I just say, Cover Love! It's even more gorgeous in person!

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand: I am so excited to read this! I've gone a bit off of paranormal romances because I can't stand the protaganists, to be honest! They seem to (with a few exceptions) be boring, whiny and weak characters but I hear great things about this book and the characters. Please don't let me down, Mrs Hand!

Bright Girls by Clare Chambers: One of those rare books I buy before hearing anything about it! I am a huge fan of UK YA and I'm always so excited to find a British title. The plot sounds interesting, maybe like a slightly older Jacqueline Wilson? (Who used to be the only author I would read haha!) Looking forward to getting stuck into this one!

So that's what I got this week :) What did you guys get? Leave me a link to your IMM and I'll be sure to check it out!


  1. OMG Unearthly is great. I realy hope you enjoy it, I found the protagonist to be one of the least annoying.

    Check out my IMM here.
