In My Mailbox is a weekly event exploring the books received this week and is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren. Please comment with your links so I can come see what's new with you too!!
Hi guys :) Well, as many of you know, yesterday I was working on my very first vlog and was tweeting about it. I ran into a couple of problems along the way(First I couldn't find any cameras that work, then my camera battery died, then it wouldn't load, then I webcamed it and it was a crappy video) so I had to give up. I'm sorry! With all the requests I had gotten for it, I'm really sorry about that guys :\ So, I'm going to keep working on it, see what I can do to get it working and what not. So, cross your fingers for next week!
In other(good) news.. I got 8 books this week. WAIT! NO YELLING YET! Let me explain..
Like I said last week(view post here) I am cutting back on getting books for a while. I am over thirty(30) books behind on reading, so I need to step it up a notch. I recently got out of a reading slump(thank Gods for Unearthly) and am still "recovering".
But, my neighbor(sweetheart that she is) brought over six(6) books for me and my older brother to read. But, the good news in this, is that all the books are adult. So, that means there is a 98% chance that I won't review them.
The bad news is, my older brother disappeared with one of them into his room, so I don't know the title of THAT one...But I do know the title of a couple of the others..Here they are:
(Most of the) Books Received from my Neighbor:
Deadly Grace - Taylor Smith
Relentless - Dean Kootnz
Wild Justice - Philip Margolin
Mary Mary - James Patterson(I have NEVER read any Patterson books, sad, I know. But I do own the first book in the Maximum Ride series, The Angel Experiment, so you guys should expect a review of that between now and early April)
Rules of Prey - John Sandford
And I also went to the library this week :) I did not go looking in the YA section this time(I've managed to avoid it for three weeks now, yes!), but I had some requests in. Both, I'm sure you guys are going to freak out about. So wait for it...
The first one I got was..
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore(you can read more about it HERE)
Now, for those who don't know, I Am Number Four(IAMF) was made into a movie. It comes out THIS Friday, the 18th. And guess who's starring as Number Four? That's right! Alex Pettyfer.
The Mortal Instruments series(cast still to be decided).
So, make sure to get a ticket to see Pettyfer starring in I Am Number Four this Friday!
And the second(and last) book I got was..
Delirium by Lauren Oliver(read more about Delirium HERE)
Now if you don't remember, I had an interview with Lauren a couple of weeks ago(interview HERE) and she's REALLY great.
Lauren is the author of the amazing(according to you guys) Before I Fall. I, personally, have not read either one of her books yet. I'm reading Unearthly right now, but Before I Fall is up next :)
(Have to say this, look really close at the picture of the Delirium cover and tell me, do you see a girl behind the words of "Lauren Oliver" and "Delirium"? I JUST saw that a couple of days ago..I always thought it was like some sort of 'glamor' or something. Guess I know now!)
So, that's what I got this week! Sorry for the super long post, but I liked being able to actually(well, kind of) "talk" to you guys about the books I got.
So, what did you get this week? Leave your link in the comments below and I'll come visit! You can also send me your link via Twitter and I'll tweet it around! Thanks :)
