In My Mailbox (38)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a post where book blogger share the books they received for review, purchased, won, were gifted or borrowed each week.

So this week was a little slower and I have absolutely no problem with that. On top of that I finally have a chance to get decent handle on my TBR pile since I just wrote my last exam and I am free from school until next fall. Even if I only got three books, this week they're all books I'm really looking forward to. So without further ado, here's what I got this week!


Review:

- Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer - This is the part where I admit that despite owning a couple of her books, I have yet to read anything written by Jodi Picoult. But I've been really looking forward to Between the Lines so I'm hoping that with this one I will finally discover Jodi Picoult. This is definitely one I will be picking up soon, especially now that I have plenty of free time on my hands.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me this to review!

Won:

- Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale - I can't remember exactly when or where I first heard about Someone Else's Life but I do remember that I've been wanting to read ever since. Since then I've also heard nothing but great things about this book so I'm really excited to have a copy for myself. I'm definitely looking forward to picking this one up soon.

Thank you to Evie from Bookish and Random House Canada for this giveaway!

Purchased:

- Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I've been waiting forever for Where She Went to come out in paperback since that's how I own the first book. All that to say that when it finally came out in bookstores this week, I rushed over and grabbed myself a copy. Hopefully I'll be reading it soon since I keep hearing it's an absolutely fantastic read.

That's all I got this week. If you missed it earlier this week, be sure to check out my giveaway for my extra ARC of The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. And as usual, leave me a comment and I'll come see what you got in your mailbox!

  1. Ooh, Someone Else's Life is AMAZING! I loved it :D Where She Went is really good too - though not quite as good as If I Stay, in my opinion (but still awesome!). I'll look out for your review to see what you think! :) Happy reading!

  4. I have only read one of Jodi Picoult's books, it was pretty good! and I was able to pick up 2 more today at a library book store, I am looking forward to them. I have Someone Else's Lift too, but haven't read it yet, I should move it up on my pile! Where She Went sounds amazing, I read the first one, so I should pick this one up soon too!

  5. Loved Where She Went. I adore Gayle Forman and everything she writes. I got Between the Liens too, and like you, I haven't read any of her books, despite owning several of them.
    Hope you enjoy your new books!
