In My Mailbox # 19

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

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's been reaaaallly quiet around here lately. I had some pretty intense personal *days* and at uni too...and when I finally had some time off, blogger was down. And well, you all know I'm not the most organized, I didn't draft any new posts anyway, nope, I enjoyed my blogger-free days instead.
Not that I have much to write about, I've only read two books this month, I'm still in a reading-slump and can't find my way out of it....

Anyway, these are the books I got these past two weeks, got a few surprises also:

Moonglass - Jessi Kirby. This was one of the two books I've read this month. I've actually really really enjoyed it. It felt real and moving.
What Happened to Goodbye - Sarah Dessen. Yep, I'm a real big Dessen-fan. It's so bad that I actually couldn't wait for the book to arrive, so I also bought it on my kindle. I've read it, I love it. It's really my kind of book, slow development, characters you really miss when the book is finished. So happy :)

Divergent - Veronica Roth. Love the cover, love the effect the camera has on the colours :)
Die For Me - Amy Plum. Ok, I confess, I LOVE this cover even more. I'm a big fan of all things Paris. Hopefully I'll get to visit my favourite city again this summer!
Tempest Rising - Tracy Deebs. This book actually went missing at my local Post Office. I had to go there 3 times until they found it in an other PO across my tiny town..(seriously, how hard can it be??)
Bumped - Megan McCafferty. Cool cover, if you have a copy, touch it, you'll know what I mean :)

Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? - Sloane Tanen. Sounds really interesting!
Flawless - Lara Chapman

The C-Word - Lisa Lynch
The Perfect Token - Cathryn Tew. I'm quite curious about this one.
Ellie Andrews Has Second Thoughts - Ruth Saberton. It feels like I've been waiting FOREVER for this one. LOVED Sabertons first book!

RSVP - Helen Warner

So, that's it from me this week. What did you all get?

Happy Reading!


  1. Awesome selection of books! I loved Divergent and We'll Always Have Summer. You are in for a treat with those. I'm curious to read What Happened to Goodbye and Moonglass. Enjoy your books!

  2. You got lots of exciting titles.... Enjoy!

  3. Nice selection this week! Hopefully they can get you out of your reading slump.

  4. Nothing! I've decided to be economical and only borrow books from the library for a while, but it does not feel like a fun project at the moment...

    There is a new Sookie Stackhouse-novel out that I might have to buy anyway.

  5. I got Die For Me as well and I'm still waiting for my copy of Divergent to arrive.
    So many great books for you! I still need/want to read almost all of them. :D

  7. Nice haul! Divergent, die for me and tempest rising are three books that are currently on my to read list so I would be intereted to know what you think.

  8. I've read Die For Me and it's amazing. I wish I had the hardcover version. Moonglass and Tempest Rising sound interesting as well.
