In My Mailbox (30): Magic


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!

HAPPY EASTER!

Whether you celebrate the holiday, festive or religious,
I hope you are enjoying your break if you have been granted one. ;)
Me? I'll be having a memorial for my ancestors tomorrow - relatives are travelling over here.

~~~

I am now officially NOT buying anymore books. :/
I have more than enough great books to keep me busy for a year!
But of course I'll be back to buying more next month. Hahahah.

Continue! :D


* 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:

Cold Light by Jenn Ashworth
(10/05/11, Hodder & Stoughton, Hachette -- unsolicited)
Debut YA '11

This looks really interesting. I'm due for a Hachette review copy, so I'm reading this one now. 

The Twilight saga: The Official Illustrated Guide by Stephenie Meyer
(13/04/11, ATOM, Hachette -- unsolicited)
Paranormal YA

I'm at a loss as to what to do with this. I wish I hadn't been sent this. It's so heavy so shipping off to someone else might be a bit troublesome. Oh, Twilight. Bane of my existence . . . You taunt me even to this day, showing up at my doorstep. :P Anyone want to take it off my hands? Aussie only, please. I'll throw in some other Twilight stuff I've been sent.


Bought:

These were bought from Basement Books, totalling at $6. They are remaindered books, which is why they are so cheap.

Trash by Andy Mulligan

I never had an intention to read this book, but it was only $1.20, so I just bought it. I've heard some good things about it.

Freeze Frame by Heidi Ayarbe

Many of you know about Compulsion? Well, this is the debut book of that author. This sounds like a deep, psychological read, probably a good boy book.

Spellhorn by Berlie Doherty {Magic}

The cover is so pretty, and at the top of this cover, the book is pronounced a children's classic. I must read this, needless to say. And, unicorns? Please.

The following were bought through The Book Depsository, totalling up to$26.


Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Hello? Upcoming film? I've only lately become conscious of how many movies are based on books, so I'm not going to let this slip away. I will know what happens at the end when I watch this movie! :P And, dystopia/sci-fi? Yes, yes!

Songs for a Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson

Hooray! I love the look of this book, and can't wait to delve into this one. Contemporary YA + music = success.

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins {Magic}

Although it's paperback, and in a lesser condition that I hoped, I'm glad I finally have a copy. There probably won't be a US paperback for Demonglass until next year, but it'll give me plenty of time to get to reading this book hehe.

    Swapped & Aussie R.A.K.:

    Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs {Magic}

    Swapped. Thanks to Braiden of Braiden's YA Concoction! It looks beautiful, I'm hoping for a sweet little romance story. :)

    Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
    Paranormal YA



    Aussie R.A.K. Also thanks to Braiden. :) Once I grab onto a copy of Betrayals (the second book), I'm going to start reading this series. Month-long pursuit. Almost. Complete!

    Swag:
