In My Mailbox (26)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a post where book bloggers talk about the books they received for review, bought, were gifted or borrowed from the library each week.

This week was good. I didn't go too crazy buying too many new books and I only received one for review. This is really helping me keep my TBR pile under control...though I may just be slightly delusional about that since it's pretty big. So here's what I got this week!


Review:

- Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin & Lisa Brown - I was offered this one for review and it sounds really good. I love ghost stories and this one is a historical fiction on top of that so it should be a really great read. Hopefully it will be as great as it promises to be.

Bought:

- Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta - I will admit I have yet to read anything by Melina Marchetta despite having had Jellicoe Road on my shelf for quite some time now. But I have heard nothing but amazing things about Saving Francesca so I decided I would pick it up. Who knows, maybe having two books by Melina Marchetta will push me to actually read them.

- Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann - I recently read Lisa McMann's upcoming Dead to You and absolutely loved it. So I decided to pick up Cryer's Cross at the bookstore hoping I would enjoy it as much as I did Dead to You. I can't wait to get to it and hopefully I will love it as much as the other book.

- Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I've been hearing about this book and have been wanting to read it for the longest time. I've also heard really good things about it and I can't wait to get to it. Hopefully I'll be able to get to it soon and see for myself what it's all about.

So that's it for me this week. Let me know what you got in your mailbox and I'll come check it out!

  1. LOL, it's okay, I haven't read a Marchetta book either. *ashamed* That book's spine is really pretty though.

    I'm determined to read a Marchetta book this year!! Happy reading.

  9. I really hope you get to bump Melina Marchetta up your TBR pile! Her books are amazing. Jellicoe Road and The Piper's Son are my favorites. :)
