In My Mailbox (28): Paranormologically Speaking


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 know the title suggests all of my books this week are paranormal, when in fact only 4 of them are. But I have a couple of fantasy, so if you want to count that, feel free! If you've been here before, you might know that paranormal is a rarity for me (to actually get to reading :P).

I'm a bit worried because I just bought 2 more books online yesterday. There's a free shipping thing going on with Basement Books. I know that the shop is on the way to my uni, but by then my books might have been snagged, so I just bought them! Found some bargains, but only bought two -- a hardcover for $1.20! :D *fingers crossed for decent quality.


* 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.



For Review:


Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance by Emily Franklin & Brendan Halpin
(01/05/11, Bloomsbury AU -- unsolicited)
Contemp YA
Seems like a really light read, and it's only at 200 pages. From what I know, this is a hit-or-miss kind of book. Fingers crossed I like it.

Winter's Shadow by M.J. Hearle
(01/06/11, Pan Macmillan -- requested)
Paranormal YA
This looks so good. Can't wait to read it! But, I really have no idea what to do with this after I'm done with it. I might just give it to one of my paranormal-loving friends.

The Folk Keeper by Franny Billingsley
(01/04/11, Bloomsbury AU -- requested)
Franny's debut! I'm expecting a great story out of this little book. :) Does anyone else love that cover? It looks even more amazing up close. I'll be reading this one really soon. ;)
