In My Mailbox (#61)

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! 

Ok.  So I haven't done one of these since like early December.  I got a lot of books for Christmas.  A lot a lot.  I don't really know where to put them all...
But, anyway, here we go: this is what I got!  
And I hope you all had great Christmases - 

For Review:

Honour by Elif Shafak (Goodreads | Amazon)
An amazing book - really strong and powerful.  Wow!
Colin Fischer by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (Goodreads | Amazon)
I'm loving this one too - it's awesome!

When You Fall In Love, You Don't Just Lose Your Heart...
Ditto for this - it was described as Downton Abbey meets Gossip Girl - I mean, how's a girl meant to say no?!
What's Up With Jody Barton by Hayley Long (Goodreads | Amazon)
Have You Every Been Hit By A Major Freakwave?
This book was amazing - I've never been more shocked and flabbergasted by a book before.  Don't let the shockingly pink cover put you off - this book is really, really deep - deeper than it's page number would have you think.

The Girl in the Mask is such a great historical novel and one that I really enjoyed. Marie-Louise Jensen is a genius!
I can't believe you haven't read The Perks of Being a Wallflower! It's definitely one of my favourite novels and I can't wait to see what you think! :)

Happy reading!

I want to read Perks of Being a Wallflower before the movie comes out on DVD! My TBR list is a mile long on my kindle, but I just bought a hard back book I saw at B&N yesterday called Level 2 that just shot to the top of my list as soon as my own book madness for 18 Things dies down, lol.

I really loved Perks! I knew I would enjoy it, but didn't expect to love it as much as I did. And can't believe I waited so long to finally read it.
