In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren, and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie! Participants are required to tell all about what they've received in the mail--anything bookish!
I've finally posted TWO MAILBOXES IN A ROW! Haha. It's been a while since that's happened. Anyway, not much in the way of physical books that I wasn't expecting, which is fine. I received some GREAT titles, that I've been waiting for for ages. Let's get started, shall we?
* All release dates go in the format (dd/mm/yy)
* Any books I have already read will have a sort of mini-review and the rating I have given it up until now written.

Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
(01/05/08, up., Eos)
I've recently watched the Miyazaki film of Howl's Moving Castle again (with my reluctant sister), and thought I could do with a little more of the magic kind of fantasy.
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
(03/06/10, UK, Puffin)
I've wanted to read this series for SO long! I loved Han's "debut", Shug, and fell in love with its innocence and charm. I've also pre-ordered It's Not Summer Without You (also UK ed.); I'll probably be reading this in December, over in summer!
Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
(11/01/11, Delacorte Books)
FINALLY!!! I am psyched to read this book, and I'm so glad that I finally got around to buying a copy because it looks fabulous. Yeah. So I'll be reading this soon, hopefully.
The Liar Society by Lisa & Laura Roecker
(01/03/11, Sourcebooks Fire)
I'll admit I actually didn't love the cover at first, but now I'm head over heels. Pink hair? Dead girl e-mails? That is all.
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
(02/11/11, Little Brown Books)
Here's a tidbit about me: I buy some books because of swag. This is partly the reason why I bought a copy, so that I can read it with my Mockingbird-SHAPED bookmark. This sounds and looks great. There are mixed reviews, so we'll see what I think of it.
