In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)
Remember that experiment I had in last week's IMM where I said "if you say I hope you enjoy Shatter Me I'll know you didn't read this post and only skimmed?" Yeah, it happened. Well, some blogger friends said it because they were being cute. Other people I don't know said it. Which bothered me. Were they just trolling for views, thinking if they commented here I'd go comment on their page? I'm sorry, but unless I know you and I know you're being funny (like Ashy and Michele and Cat), I can't take you seriously if you can't take 30 seconds to a minute to read my mindless blabber. Or at least the mindless blabber I leave in the brackets when I list books. Honestly, I don't care if you skim this blabber. It's mostly me telling you how my week went and me being neurotic.
Earlier in the week, I started thinking. I don't think I talk about books enough. I mean, reviews happen twice a week (three times this week), you get a Waiting on Wednesday post every Wednesdays and an In My Mailbox post whenever I get books, but you never get my thoughts on books and young adult literature and what's going on these days in YA lit. Do you want more of that? I'm wondering if I should post more often during the week, increase it to maybe 5 or 6 times a week as opposed to 4 times a week. Of course, I should really plan out what I would talk about.
And now here are this week's books. :)
The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff (another book of 2011 that I loved so much I bought a finished copy, my review can be found here)
Requested to review from Macmillan through NetGalley:
Cinder by Marissa Meyer (I'm debating on whether or not to hold this back as a book for the 2012 DAC, since (supposedly) I can access the file until mid January, but the release date is Jan 3rd. Thoughts?)
Outside In by Maria V. Snyder
The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver
Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Shine by Lauren Myracle
Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray
To review: Ultraviolet, Cinder, A Million Suns, Incarnate, Born Wicked, A Touch Morbid, Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse, Unraveling Isobel, The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, and Immortal City. Are there any of the library books you'd like to see reviews of? Come back on Tuesday to see me live blog as I read John Green's Paper Towns. There will be spoilers. :)
