In My Mailbox #29

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

The Awakening (Darkest Powers, #2) by Kelley Armstrong
A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb
Stargazer (Evernight, #2) by Claudia Gray

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

I won Speak, Twenty Boy Summer, and Dreamland from Marie at Marie Loves Books through her Speak Loudly giveaway. Thank you so much, Marie! :) I've already read (and loved) Twenty Boy Summer. Real glad to have a copy! Speak I just finished yesterday, and it was good. It'll be messed up if these two books get banned at that school district where they're currently being challenged, so I really hope that doesn't happen.

The other books (The Awakening, A Certain Slant of Light, and Stargazer) I bought off eBay because they were pretty cheap. I read The Awakening & Stargazer months ago, but I love those series, so I seriously needed to buy my own copies. :D (Now all I need are the first books for those series! I plan on buying them soon.) I finished A Certain Slant of Light the other day, and I loved it! Wish I had bought it sooner. I heard there will be a sequel; can't wait to read it whenever it comes out.

And that's it for this week! :)

  2. Oooh, amazing books this week! I have A Certain Slant of Light on my TBR, and I can't wait to read it! >_<

  6. You got a few goodies this week. I love Twenty Boy Summer and The Awakening. I never read Dreamland by Sarah Dessen interested to hear what you think. Happy reading :)

  7. cool lilttle stash. twenty boy summer is such a beautifully written debut and I though Speak had the most compelling prose! Enjoy your books!

  8. Awww I just loved A Certain Slant of Light. You got some fabulous books this week! Have you read the first Evernight book? I was underwhelmed and I haven't gotten around to the rest of the series :( enjoy!!

  9. @Jen: Yup, I've read the first one. Just finally getting around to buying the books. I know, not everyone liked Evernight; it's just one of those series. hehe :D

  10. I still need to read the first one - the Summoning? I think. But A Certain Slant of Light is really, really amazing - so is Twenty Boy Summer! Anyway, hope you enjoy all your new books this week! Have a great week :)
