In My Mailbox

Saturday, March 20, 2010 |
Hi everyone! Spring is finally here! I actually got two books in my mailbox this week! IMM was created by Kristi from The Story Siren.

The first is Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcis and Maragret Stohl, which I won at a contest hosted my the lovely Lucy at Delightful Reviews. I had no idea how thick this book was until I received it; I think this may have to be a summer read, as 550+ pages is quite a lot to handle during the schoolyear. ;)

And the second is Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens: A Reading Journal for Young Adult Book Lovers by Rachelle Rogers Knight. This is the book that I'm featured in, along with dozens of other YA bloggers. I actually just started flipping through this one last night, and found that there was more than two pages of fairy tale retelling recommendations. I was in heaven.

What have you heard about these two reads and what's in your mailbox this week?

Ahh awesome books! I've heard great things about Beautiful Creatures. That is so cool that you are featured in the second book! :)

Despite its size, I found Beautiful Creatures to be a fast read. I also thought it was excellent.

I'll have to look for the other book. I like to get recommendations that I might have otherwise missed.

Happy reading!

I am wondering how the writing of Beautiful Creatures is. I saw a quote that kind of put me off as the character stated something was a metaphor when in fact it was an idiom. I have heard lots of good things hope you enjoy it.

It's going to take me forever to get to Beautiful Creatures, but at least I'll have that and some other books to look forward to this summer. I'm trying not to go into it expecting too much...I've heard so many good things about it, including uniqueness (which I feel is becoming more and more highly valued). Anyway, looking forward to reading what you have to say about it. :)

Congratulations on being featured in Read, Remember, Recommend. I have seen the older version of the journal and it is a really cool resource.

Beautiful Creatures is one of my favorites this year. I hope you love it!
