In My Mailbox (32)

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.

Pretty quiet week…not that I’m complaining! I’ve been making my way through my shelf of unread books and it feels so good. This week is more like In My Mailbox (hopefully). I put these two great books on reserve at the library this weekend with hopes that I will get them early this week to bring down the shore with my next weekend. I can’t wait to sit on the beach in the sun with a book in my hand.

From the library:

Skinny by Diana Spechler: As most  of you probably know if you follow me on Twitter, I’m really into working out and running right now. This title and cover certainly caught my eye, but I’m also really intrigued by the plot. Grieving New York City gal takes a job at a Southern weight loss camp. Definitely sounds interesting.

Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal: I love that Pascal decided to revisit this fab series for those who used to love them. Ann. M. Martin? Are you listening. I’d be thrilled to see a Baby Sitters Club reunion book!

*In case you missed it, I’m giving away a copy of HOURGLASS by Myra McEntire to one lucky reader! Be sure to enter*

  1. I’ve read both books you got this week, and I really liked Spechler’s book. It wasn’t what I expected, but in a good way.

    I…can’t even talk about SVC any more. It hurts too much.

  2. Skinny sounds really interesting. I never read the Sweet Valley High series, but my cousin did, and she loved Sweet Valley Confidential! Hope you do, too 🙂

    Oh, and I started a new blog with my friend- I would love it if you stopped by 🙂

  3. Babysitter’s Club Reunion Book is the best idea ever!!!! We should start a petition lol!

    Sweet Valley Confidential looks interesting…..I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews on it, so I hope to hear your take on it soon!

      @Tara, I completely agree and would be totally down to petition. It would make my entire life. I lived off of those books!

  4. I read Skinny awhile back and enjoyed it! Hope you do too. I’m wanting to read SVC, but keep hearing such bad things about it so I’m scared to.

    Thanks for stopping by mine! I’m now following you. 🙂

      @Amanda, So glad you liked SKINNY! I’m really looking forward to it. As for SVC, I’ve been hearing bad things all day, so I’m a little skeptical.

  5. I used to love the Sweet Valley books! I’m gonna have to check out the new one! Hope you enjoy your books! Here’s My IMM if you get the chance to check it out! Happy reading!

  7. I’m with you on the Babysitter’s Club reunion!!! I’m going to have to add the SVH 10 years later to my mound.

  8. Hey there, Jessica! I’ve heard some really great things about Sweet Valley Confidential and actually wound up buying it a few days ago. I adored the SVH books when I was in elementary school and could often be found past my bedtime huddled under a blanket with a flashlight. As for a Baby Sitters Club reunion book, holy crap YES. I also saw that even Ann Brashares did a Sisterhood if the Traveling Pants reunion book!

    Anywho, pretty sweet mailbox ans super cute blog. I’m a new follower, btw!

      @Meghann D., Thanks for following Meghann! I seriously would LOVE a BSC reunion. I think we should start a petition to make it happen!

  9. The girl on the Sweet Valley Confidential cover really reminds me of the one on the Vampire Diaries: The Fury & Dark Reunion. I hadn’t heard of either of these books before, but I hope you’ll enjoy them :). I need to have a quiet week or two or three to work through all the books I have :D. Happy reading!!
