In My Mailbox #33

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren, inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead
Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms, #1) by Kristin Cashore
If I Stay (If I Stay, #1) by Gayle Forman
Paper Towns by John Green
You Against Me by Jenny Downham

For Review:
Timeless [ARC] by Alexandra Monir from Different Area Codes Book Tour.

Cryer's Cross [ARC] by Lisa McMann from the author.
Second Kiss [eBook] by Natalie Palmer from a friend.
Shades of Atlantis [eBook] by Carol Oates from Jennie @ Random Chalk Talk.

If there's a Books A Million in your area, you really need to have a look at those tables or bins they have around the store because I found a table full of marked-down YA books (probably overstock). I got Blood Promise, If I Stay, Paper Towns, and Graceling for under $5 each. I know, great deals! I wish I had noticed earlier. I'll have to take a look at the other BAM in my area.

I won an ARC of Cryer's Cross from Lisa McMann through her newsletter. We had to tell her our favorite read in 2010 and why it was our fave in one sentence. Probably random drawing, but I like to think I won because of my amazing recommendation. hehe ;P Guess which book I recommended? Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, of course! I wonder if she'll actually read it... Hope so!

After about 3 weeks, You Against Me finally came in the mail the other day from The Book Depository. I can't wait to read that one! I've already read and reviewed Timeless here. (Different Area Codes Book Tour has had some really great tours so far. You should check it out if you're a US resident.) Second Kiss and Shades of Atlantis are eBooks that I'll need to find the time to read because for some reason, I get extremely distracted when I read books on the computer. :p

That's about it! I was going to babble a whole lot more, but I decided to get straight to the point. heh Happy 2011!


  1. Great stack of books Alexa! I still can't believe you got some of them so cheap :)

  2. I get sooo many books from the Books A Mill tables. So cheap, its amazing. Sadly, there are none where I live. I have to wait til I go visit relatives. Anyway, if you haven't read all of the Vampire Academy series yet, do it! So good!

  3. Awesome books this week. I wish there was a Books A Million where I live! Happy reading!
