In My Mailbox # 6

In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren , find out more about it on her IMM-page.

I feel ashamed. So ashamed that I posted 3, I mean THREE  IMM's back to back. I'm sorry to say that I had to deal with some personal issues this last week and I couldn't write the reviews I was meant to write (now that I FINALLY had the time)! I hope to have the time to write in the coming week. ( Whereas I can read when I feel sh**, I can't write - it's a hard thing for me to write even if I feel good). Anyway, these are the books I got this week...wohooo, the *missing* books from last week finally arrived!

 Two more S.A.S.S.( Students Across the Seven Seas) books..wohoo, the only one missing now is out of stock :/ So, I guess my collection is complete for now!
Getting the Boot - Peggy Guthart Strauss
When Irish Guys Are Smiling - Suzanne Supplee

Across the Universe - Beth Revis. Oh my gosh, it took 180 pages before I got sucked into it ( I had my problems in the beginning, due to personal memories of watching *Forever Young* in Ski-Camp (still have nightmares :S), but oh, help, I loved it, couldn't put it down). I'd give it 4 stars (And there's a map inside the cover.. - me like! )
Torment - Lauren Kate - Beautiful velvety cover!
Unearthly - Cynthia Hand - I haven't read many Angel books, yet, but this one was the best so far, really fell in love with it, 5 stars! And I looooove the metallic cover!

Stolen-A Letter to my Captor - Lucy Christopher
You Against Me - Jenny Downham

Wildwing - Emily Whitman
The Ivy - Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur

And two non-Ya-books

Following Polly - Karen Bergreen
Salting Roses - Lorelle Marinello

All books I've purchases myself, ordered from bookdepository.com

I'm so excited to have these books arrive this week, can't wait to read them all....so, what did you all get?
