In My Mailbox (#51)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a perfect way to see who's reading and review what. Awesome! 



I've not done an IMM in... forever!  So I have, like, three weeks worth of books here.  Anyhoo, this is what I got!  :)


For Review:


The Pledge (The Pledge, Book One) by Kimberly Derting (Goodreads | Amazon)
Words Are The Most Dangerous Weapon Of All...
This was ace!  I really loved it!  It's the first fantasy-dystopia I've read and it was awesome!
Insignia (Insignia, Book One) by S.J. Kincaid (Goodreads | Amazon)
This one just blew my mind!  It was just amazing - out of this world!  Action, humour, suspense: everything I needed!  My review will be posted when the book comes out in July!  I'll give you a peek preview... 5 Stars! :D
The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, Book Two) by Pittacus Lore (Goodreads | Amazon)
We Are Hunted.  We Will Fight.  We Have The Power of Six.
Again: awesome book!  Totally lived up to I Am Number Four!




Dying to Know You by Aidan Chambers (Goodreads | Amazon)
I've read this already - it was really sweet and touching!
The Seeing by Diana Hendry (Goodreads | Amazon)
This sounds incredible - really chilling and just amazing!
Fire City by Bali Rai (Goodreads Amazon)
There Is Nowhere To Hide...
This looks ah-ma-zing!!  :D
Turf by John Lucas (Goodreads Amazon)
Kill Or Die...
I love edgy books - and this looks like it's a really amazing one!
The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer, Book One) by Jenny Han (Goodreads | Amazon)
We'll Always Have Summer (Summer, Book Two) by Jenny Han (Goodreads | Amazon)

Yay!  I can't wait to get stuck into Summer!! :D
Bringing The Summer by Julia Green (Goodreads | Amazon)

I loved Green's Drawing With Light, so I can't wait to read this!
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen (Goodreads | Amazon)
Yay, yay, yay, yay, yay!!  I cannot WAIT to read this - I've been wanting to read it since forever!




The Vampire Blog by Pete Johnson (Goodreads | Amazon)
I Was Just An Ordinary Kid.  Until I Started Craving Blood...
The Vampire Hunters by Pete Johnson (Goodreads | Amazon)
Growing Up Is Hard Enough - Now Try Growing Fangs.
The Vampire Fighters by Pete Johnson (Goodreads | Amazon)
Think You've Got Problems?  Try Being Thirteen... And A Half Vampire.



Friendly Fire (Thin Air Saga, Book Two) by Lynn Seresin (Goodreads | Amazon)
I loved Lynn's first book and can't wait to read this one!  Check out the blog tour stops on my blog!




Bought On a Hill...Thing.

It's a nice day, so you go out for an icecream.  You're on this hill-slash-wildlife-thing.  You go into the little building for tea.  And - oh!  There's used books, three for 50p.  How's a girl meant to resist?!


Marley & Me by John Grogan (Goodreads | Amazon)
life and love with the world's worst dog
This film made me cry bucketloads, so I can't wait to see what the book will do!!

The Cheerleader (Point Horror) by Caroline B. Cooney (Goodreads | Amazon)
Yes, this is an old book and I'm way too old for it, but 50p! ;)
I Like It Like That (Gossip Girl, Book Five) by Cecily von Ziegesar (Goodreads | Amazon)
I didn't even know this was a book!  And seeing as I love the TV show, I couldn't resist!




Bought:



Starters (Starters, Book One) by Lissa Price (Goodreads | Amazon)
Your Body.  Rented Out.  Used To Murder
This book was amazing!!  And the cover is awesome!  You can download this app, and the cover comes to life!!  Squeee!! :D :D
Kitty Kitty (Bad Kitty, Book Two) by Michele Jaffe (Goodreads | Amazon)
Jas Is Back.  In Venice.  In Trouble...
Yay, yay, yay!  I loved the first in this series and can't wait to read this one!! :D
Tempest (Tempest, Book One) by Julie Cross (Goodreads | Amazon)
Time Will Tear Them Apart
I've heard so many great things about this one, so I can't wait to read it!




Well, that's me.  Hope you've all had a great three weeks! :D
