Me on In My Mailbox (43)

In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)

Hi. :) It's been an interesting year of blogging, I'll say that. So many books have shocked me, surprised me, horrified me, made me laugh, made me cry, made me hope and dream and wish that I was a teenager again if only for these books. Every day I'm surprised at how awesome book bloggers are, how they can come together because they love books and they believe that they have the power to change people's minds and opinions of the world, how they introduce children to strange new worlds and characters different than themselves. I want to hug everyone I've met, either from comments or on Twitter or at the few book events I've been to this past year. You're all so amazing. :)

Next weekend is Maureen Johnson's signing (2pm on the 29th), and at 7pm on November 3rd there's a launch party for Jeyn Roberts and her book Dark Inside (which will scare the crap out of you). I'm not sure about the second one. Maybe. Only because the author's from Vancouver. And because the book was creepy.

Received to review from HarlequinTeen through NetGalley:
On a Dark Wing by Jordan Dane (Apparently, I'm now on their auto-request list. Good thing they're not holding me not finishing Crave against me.)

Found a link on Twitter for the S&S Galley Grab:
Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook (spotted the link on Twitter on Monday, so excited to read this, Eileen lives up here in BC and is so funny to listen to when she talks about books and writing)

Borrowed from the library:
So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti (e-book)

To review: Fateful, The Pledge, Shattered Souls, Tempest, Unraveling Isobel, On a Dark Wing, and Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse. I've also been picking books for the now My Choice Review Week (I should've asked on Twitter). Suggest some random published books I can find at the library, people. How hard is that? ;)


  1. don't you just love the cover to Unraveling Isobel?? and i'm on Harlequin's auto-approve list, too! :high fives:

    happy reading, and i can't wait to see what you think of The Pledge. i've heard good and bad things about it.

  2. Yay for being on Harlequin's auto approve list. I do like the cover for On a Dark Wing.

  3. Unraveling Isobel looks pretty good, I've been seeing it show up a lot today. Great IMM this week though. :)
