In My Mailbox # 21

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

Hi everybody, sorry that I have been AWOL lately, I've spent the last few weeks at the lake, reading a lot. Today though it's rainy and I have to go to the airport later to pick up my mom who's coming for a visit. Anyway, as I'm home, I thought I'd do a quick IMM today....hopefully I'll have time to write a June recap later on, or tomorrow.

All links go as usual to Goodreads.

Displacement - Thalia Chaltas
Hourglass - Myra McEntire; I can't wait to read this one, Love the cover!
A Need So Beautiful - Suzanne Young. This cover is gorgeous. It sounds really interesting.
Exile - Rebecca Lim. This is the second one in the Mercy trilogy
Spellbound - Cara Lynn Shultz. What an in teresting cover :)
Flying Blind - Deborah Cooke. I really like this one so far.
Starcrossed - Josephine Angelini. Beautiful and intriguing cover (cover twin to Hereafter?), haven't read it yet, as it isn't exactly a beach-read.
Hereafter - Tara Hudson ( see Starcrossed)

Don't Stop Now - Julie Halpern. I love Road Trip books, and I couldn't stop reading this one!
Sixteenth Summer - Michelle Dalton. Beach Read!

Confessions of a Karaoke Queen - Ella Kingsley. Somehow I got a proof-copy of this, I'm really enjoying it so far, it's hilarious!
Mr. Darcy Goes Overboard: A Tale of Tide & Prejudice - Belinda Roberts. You all know I can't resist Jane Austen!
The Summer Season - Julia Williams
The Single Girl's To-Do List - Lindsey Kelk. My favourite of  June by far. I love Lindsey Kelk's novels!

Nostalgia - Used Books

I woke up one day a few weeks ago and had this unbelievable craving after my childhood/young teenager books. I knew the books were out of print, and even with Abe-Books, and Amazon Used Books I knew it would be difficult to get them, as many don't ship outside of Germany or not to where I live. Anyway, I managed to get the most important books (for a lot of money :S), but I'm still missing three books, that just don't ship here :(. Anyway, I almost cried when they arrived, I devoured them all in a matter of days, I still love them!

Bleib bei uns, Beate - Berte Bratt
Hab Mut, Katrin - Berte Bratt
Machst du mit Senta? - Berte Bratt

Clara gibt nicht auf - Justus Pfaue
Mensch, Pia - Brigitte Blobel


Summer's Crossing - Julie Kagawa. PUCK!!!
Drive Me Crazy - Erin Downing
Groundswell - Katie Lee. This Book really surprised me. Me Like!!
