In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox, started by Kristi from The Story Siren is an awesome weekly meme to post what books we’ve received this week; whether it was sent for review by a publisher, purchased at a book store, borrowed from the library, or won from a giveaway.

I am SUPER excited about my books this week! They are all from the library (love my library!) and they have all been on my wish list for some time now.  Don’t you love when you know you’re going to have an awesome reading week? With Thanksgiving on Thursday and my long weekend, I can’t wait to spend some time with these books!

The Duff by Kody Keplinger: I know I’m super behind in reading this one, but I’m really excited. I’ve heard you either LOVE it or hate it, so hopefully I’ll fall in the love category.

Things I Know About Love by Kate Le Vann: First off, I just adore this title. And it’s about a girl who blogs…need I say more?

Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen: Another great title and this one seems like exactly the kind of contemporary YA I love. The reviews I’ve read have said that the book is driven by emotion which I think will make it a very strong read.

What’s in your mailbox today?

  1. I hope you enjoy The DUFF. As a non-teen (I’m not old, really), it’s funny to read it with some perspective. Little Black Lies is also on my radar. Can’t wait to read what you think about it. I’ve wanted to read it ever since I read The Truth about Delilah Blue, also by Cohen.

    Happy Reading!

  2. A girl who blogs and love? Sounds like a fabulous book:) Enjoy your new books and have a nice sunday!

  3. Little Black Lies sounds really good! I will admit, I was in the “not a fan” category with The Duff and I’m anxious to hear your thoughts!

    1. @Tara, Ahhh, okay. I’m interested to see where I fall. You and one of my other FAVORITE bloggers didn’t like it, so if our tastes are anything like I think they are, I’m not sure what I’ll think either…buttttt, we’ll see! 🙂

  4. Oo and to answer your question! Some of my favorite fantasy books that I think would give you a sense of the genre would be The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa, Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, Nightshade by Andrea Cremer, and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater! They’re all pretty different (and completely AMAZING), so any of them would give you a different taste for the genre =)

  5. I got the duff a few weeks ago and i have yet to read either, but I’m trying to wait til the new year so I can use it towards one of my reads for a challenge. Enjoy your week reading!

  6. I was most definitely in the big ol’ hater camp for The DUFF — I’ll totally admit it. My negative review of that one was probably the cattiest I’ve ever written, and I could have been nastier — but there was no purpose to be served by that! And I actually do pride myself on attempting to be neutral and professional, haha. I’ll be anxious to see where you fall!

    1. @Meg, Hahahahaha, I know you were! You were definitely one of those “hate camp” people I referenced above. I’m interested to see if I agree with you! We’ll have to discuss after!
