In my mailbox #11

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren which aims to let book bloggers share what books they have bought, swapped or borrowed during the week.

I've had quite a few fab swops over the last two weeks:
A big thanks to Jade at Ink Scratchers
check out her blog I think it's all sorts of awesomeness,
and the lovely ladies of UK Swop Shop on Goodreads

I bought
A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
(I read it straight away and really enjoyed it)

Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler
Going Too Far By Jennifer Echols

Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby
(my first ever Zombie book in celebration of
Zombie Craze 2011 over at the Bookish Brunette)

What was in your mailbox this week?


  1. Nice selection! I read "Thirteen reasons why" last year and really liked it. I'm a bit envious of you getting "Birthmarked". :)

    Here's my IMM:

  3. What a great book week and thank you for mentioning the swap shop :D

  5. I know that copy of Birthmarked and WHite Cat! Haha, hope you enjoy them and thanks for linking to me (HAPPY HAPPY!)

    Welcome to the world of zombies, if you enjoyed that you so totally need to read Undead by Kirsty McKay, comes out in September but I got an ARC and it's amazzzzing so far! Haven't read Zombie Queen yet! Want to though..

    Awesome mailbox :)

  6. Fantastic books for you this week! This reminds me that I really need to order a copy of A Need So Beautiful. Seems like everyone loves this novel. :)

    Have a lovely week,

  7. Great set! Zombie Queen sounds cute. I loved White Cat and Siren.

  8. Wow, what a mailbox!! Happy reading.

  9. I wouldn't mind reading all of yours books this week!


  10. Great books! I really need to get myself a copy of A Need So Beautiful and I loved Going Too Far. Enjoy your new books!!


  11. P.S. I also got Thirteen Reasons Why this week. I can't wait to read it!

  12. Zombie Queen looks great - I added to my own list as well! SOme of your swaps a re great - I really enjoyed White Cat! :)

  13. Thanks for stopping by my IMM. I'm really looking forward to reading Bookmarked. Enjoy your books!

  14. Great mailbox! I really want to read Zombie Queen of Newbury High...can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! Thanks for stopping by my IMM today.

  15. Great IMM! I'll be interested in seeing what you think of A Need so Beautiful. Almost bought that yesterday, but got something else instead. Happy reading!

  16. Me too!! I also really, really enjoyed A Need So Beautiful! Birthmarked was a great dystopian; definitely looking forward to Prized, the sequel. Thirteen Reasons Why was so touching... and contrasting it is The Summer I Turned Pretty, which is lots of fun, a great beach book. I haven't gotten around to reading White Cat yet, though it too is in my to-read pile.

    Happy reading!
