In My Mailbox (6)

Saturday, June 26, 2010

IMM is a meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. For me this week, I didn't get any review books. I purchased ONE book using a gift card I got for my birthday from last month. Then, I borrowed FIVE books from the library.

Purchased Using Gift Card:
Skinny by Lbi Kaslik
Genre: Young Adult
About: Eating Disorders

...

Library Books!
Cum Laude by Cecily von Ziegesar
- Cecily von Ziegesar wrote the Gossip Girl series. I have read the books, but unfortunately did not like them at all. I just didn't like how she portrayed teenagers and high school, in general. However, I did like Seasons 1 and 2 of the TV show of the same title mainly because of Blair and the fashion. I gave up on it midway through Season 2 though.

Gentlemen by Michael Northrop
Genre: Young Adult
- I have no idea what this one is about, but the creepy cover really caught my attention and told me to borrow it! So I did. It could be good though; it sounds really interesting.

After You by Julie Buxbaum
Genre: General Fiction
- Little random story: While flipping through the pages of this book, this little cross-stitched bookmark fabric fell out. I guess the previous borrower left it there. It is so lovely though so I'm definitely going to keep and use it.

Lover Eternal and Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
- I loved Dark Lover, which is the first one in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, so I'm super excited to read these!

...

But that is all for me this week. I am excited to read this ones. I've been getting a lot more reading time since it is officially Summer, so w00hoo for that, right? ;)By the way, I just finished The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell. I didn't like it :/ I'm going to be writing a review for it very soon. Anyway, what did you get in your mailbox? Feel free to leave your links; I love reading other IMM posts!

  1. I love the cover for Skinny! And the photo on Cum Laude kinda looks familiar, haha, can't remember where I've seen it before. And I agree, the cover for Gentlemen is super creepy but intriguing! Awesome books and have fun with all your summer reading time!

  3. You really got me interested in the Black Dagger books. I think I might just have to buy the first book soon. I just feel weird owning them because of the covers... :P
    I read Skinny my junior year of HS, it was pretty sad. That bookmark is so pretty! Happy Reading. :D

  4. @Linna: Yeah, I really like the simplicity of Skinny's cover. And thanks! :)

    @Elie: Thanks, Elie. Did you finish the BlackDagger series already?

    @Adriana: Hahaha. That is actually what I said. I bought Dark Lover actually, and the cashier (who was a lot older than me) looked at me and I felt like I was a 10year old buying something I shouldn't. You could always buy it online.. it's cheaper ;)

  7. Skinny sounds interesting, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Cum Laude. Apparently it's not as good as GG, but we'll see. Happy reading!

  10. Sorry about that. I messed up my first comment. :)
    You got some good ones this week---I LOVE JR Ward! I've read all of her books and the BDB series gets better with each book! Dark Lover was only 3.5 stars for me but the rest have been 4-5 stars. Delicious reading!

    @Kathy Martin: I'll go check out your IMM too :)

    @Rebecca: Thank you!

    @Life After Jane: Definitely. Addictive is the perfect word to describe the series.

    @Nora: Thank you!

    @Corrine: Thank you, happy reading to you as well.

    @Chrissie: They're entertaining, I recommend it. It's not for everyone, but overall, if you enjoy a good paranormal romance once in a while, you won't be disappointed.

    @Book Monster: Yes, I've never heard of it before either until I saw the cover a few weeks ago. I heard good things about it, so I decided to get it. Happy reading to you too!
