In My Mailbox (20)

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 from a publisher, purchased at a book store, borrowed from the library, or won from a giveaway.

Not too many books this week…I purposefully avoided any amazing book sales, especially after the awesomeness of last week.  Where can I put in a request for more hours in a day to read?!

However, I couldn’t resist picking up two gems from my local library- two titles I’ve been excited to read for a long time!

Matched by Ally Condie: Yay! I finally got MATCHED. I’ve been excited to finally check this one out for some time now. Now that I’m into dystopian novels, I’ve been eating up as many as I can and I’ve heard this is a must-read.

Not That Kind Of Girl by Siobhan Vivian: I would read this book based on the scandalous cover alone, but it helps that it also sounds like a really interesting and fun story too.

What’s in your mailbox today?

  1. I love the cover for MATCHED–I still stop and stare whenever I see it in stores 🙂 I’ve been wanting to read NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL ever since I read Forever Young Adult’s review for it–it seems like a great book. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on both these books! Happy reading 😀

  2. Ooh, I haven’t heard of these. I will have to look for them now!
    I had an awesome week for books… so good that I just might have to do my very first IMM! 🙂

  3. Ooh, you got two books I’ve been looking forward to reading for a while now so I can’t wait to see your reviews for them. Happy reading! 🙂

  4. I want Matched since the first time I heard their wonderful reviews, but, I didn’t know the other one but I like the plot it seems a funny book! 😀 Enjoy reading!

  5. great books this week! i really want to read not that kind of girl. the reviews are always taking about the main character and i’m really curious. wanna read match too but the reviews are so mixed–might have to borrow this one from my public library.

    happy reading and have a lovely sunday 🙂

  6. I enjoyed Matched a lot, but it definitely has mixed reviews. I hope you enjoy it! I haven’t read Not That Kind of Girl, but maybe I’ll pick it up based on your review 🙂

  7. I’ve heard so many awesome things about Matched, and I even have my own copy, but I haven’t gotten the chance to read it yet. I hope you enjoy it, though!

  8. That cover IS scandalous! I’ve heard a lot of great things about her books though so I think I’m going to have to get one soon. Great books this week!

  9. I really enjoyed MATCHED. The writing was beautiful. It isn’t action driven, so it works at a leisurely pace, but I loved it. I know some people had trouble with the pacing though. I hope you like it! Happy reading!

  10. I didn’t get anything this week so no IMM for me. Not that kind of Girl sounds really good, I need to check it out. I hope you enjoy them both, I read Matched and it wasn’t what I expected. Looking forward to see what you think of it. =)

  11. We’ll have to discuss Not That Kind of Girl when you’re done — dying to hear your thoughts! My thoughts were pure love!
