In My Mailbox #13

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where bloggers show what book they received that week, via mailbox, library, bought, borrowed or any other way. It's a great way to see who's reading what so make sure you head on  over and join in!

Borrowed (from my awesome friends Sinead, Emer and Orla. They gave me the books on the condition that I mentioned them in my IMM post :D)

Spy Girl:Out of the Shadows
Spy Girl: Once Upon a Crime
I've never heard of these before, but they sound really fun!

My So-Called Life by Joanna Nadin
I already have read about 50 pages of this, and I didn't really like it, so  I don't think I'll be finishing it.

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
I've never read a Dessen book (don't judge) but I've heard they're amazing and I've looking forward to giving this a go. And, LOOK AT THAT COVER!

CHERUB:Maximum Security by Robert Muchamore
I've read the first in this series, and I LOVED it, and even though this is the third book, I'm going to try and get the second one, Class A, from the library as soon as I can.

Scarlett by Cathy Cassidy
After reading Lucky Star, which was BRILLIANT, I read this one straight away and I completely 
loved it!

Life at the Shallow End by Helen Bailey (not pictured)
I've already read a bit  of this and it's hilarious! I think I'm going to like it :)

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis
This volume has all seven books, and I really can't wait to start it because I loved the movies, and, well, they're classics!

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
I was really surpised to find this at the library, but delighted too! I've heard it's amazing. I can't wait to read it. 

Matched by Ally Condie
I've heard mixed things about this, but I'm looking forward to reading it and deciding for myself.

Rose and the Lost Princess by Holly Webb
I enjoyed the first book in this series, Rose, so I hope I like this too.

Stardust by Neil Gaiman
I recently watched this AMAZING movie, and it was adapted from this novel, so this is going to be my next read, definitely!

Spiderwick Chronicles: Book 3 Lucinda's Secret by Holy Black and Tony DiTerlizzi
Already read and loved this :)

The Palace of Laughter by Jon Berkeley
I got this from the library a couple of years ago but never got around to reading it. It sounds magical, and it was only 2euro at a charity shop, so I had to get it!

The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time by Mark Haddon
This was only 1euro in a different charity shop! Bargain or what! I'm reading it now ans it's unlike anything I've read before.

Zodiac Girl:Double Trouble by Cathy Hopkins
I got this and the below book in a 2 for 5euro deal. Bargain week! I love this series and Hopkins other books.

Forget Me Not by Anne Cassidy
I've never read a YA crime novel, or any of Anne's books before, but I've heard they're amazing, and this does sound it, and I am eager to begin reading it.

I didn't have enough time to do an IMM post last week, so I got double this week! The first picture is the books I got last week and the second is the ones I got this week. I'm sooooooooo happy! Yay for Narnia and Across The Universe! So what did you get in your mailboxes?


  1. Hey, did you get enough books this week? :P

    The Truth About Forever is really good, I hope you like you first Dessen experience :)

    I really loved Across the Universe, and enjoyed Matched well enough

  2. I know, I got so many!!! Glad to hear it, looking for to my 'first Dessen experience' :)

  3. I heard Matched was really good!! I hope you like it!!
    I read only one Sarah Dessen book... it was something about summer... I didn't really like it that much. Maybe it was called "That Summer" or something. I can't remember. For me all of the Sarah Dessen books are the same.
    As my English teacher put it, "Who are you gonna remember in 50 years, Sarah Dessen or Toni Morrison?" However I have yet to read a Toni Morrison book!!!
    I hope "The Truth About Forever" is good though!! I'm looking forward to the review!!

  4. Wow, awesome books! :-o I saw the Spy Girl books in a shop but didn't buy it, but they look really good! I really want to read the CHERUB series, Rose, The Truth About Forever, Matched, Across The Universe and Stardust (thanks for telling me about the movie via email :D) too. *jealous face* I absolutely loved Scarlett and I think you will too!

    My IMM:

  5. Ooh, Across the Universe and Matched: two books that have been on my TBR since they came out but haven't found the time to read yet, unfortunately! Hope you enjoy all your reads!

  6. I love Sarah Dessen books, their so magical.
    My So-Called Life is funny and Scarlett is my favourite Cathy Cassidy book.
    I really want to read Matched! My friend lent it to me and I got halfway through before I lost it...
    Forget Me Not looks really good.
    Happy reading.(:

  7. The Curious Case of The Dog In the Nighttime is awesome, I love it! I wrote about it for one of my essays in college... half the wordcount was probably taken up with the title! lol

  8. 16 books! Whoooaa! You did well, that's for sure. Hope you enjoy them all.

    I still have Matched sitting in my tbr pile. One day I'll get to it.


Comments make my day :)

This is an award-free zone, sorry but I just don't have the time to pass them on! Thanks for thinking of me anyway :)
