In My Mailbox #20

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi over at The Story Siren and is a great way to see what other bloggers are reading and reviewing. I always love seeing what everyone else got for their week!




FOR REVIEW:
Clarity by Kim Harrington
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakely-Cartwright, Catherine Hardwicke
Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby
Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar (just finished this one and LOVED it)
The Samaritan by Fred Venturini

An enormous thank you this week to Scholastic, Little, Brown books for Young Readers, Penguin, Linds from Bibliophile Brouhaha and Kristy Eagar, and TLC Book Tours for sending me such wonderful books for review!

  2. Hopping through. I hope you love Shiver. It's one of my favs. Fair Bad Day sounds like an adorable title.
    I'm especially curious about Red Riding Hood. I'm a fan of Catherine Hardwicke as a director - I'm curious how she does with a book instead of a screenplay.

  3. Oh, i want to get Shiver as well.
    I've heard so many good things about it, and yet..I went through my months thinking linger was the first book in the series haha.
    Awesome books [:

  5. Jenny,

    Shiver is one of my favorites! I hope you like it. And Fairy Bad Day sounds funny.

  6. I don't know about the other books (although I have heard excellent things about Raw Blue--judging by your reaction, I'm thinking I'll read another great review for it) but I LOVED Shiver (SAM!) and I really really REALLY enjoyed Clarity. Clare's voice was snarky ;D (and once you finish it, I have to know what team you're on! Personally I'm team Justin-but who knows what'll happen in the sequel.... er, I'm getting ahead of myself).

    Happy reading, Jenny!

  10. *gasps* I can't believe you never read Shiver! Enjoy it, it's one of the best books I ever read. (I wish I could be a quarter the writer Maggie Stiefvater is.)

  11. Shiver's such a great book, I hope you enjoy it. I'm waiting to get a copy of Clarity too. Happy reading!

  12. I am so jealous I have had Raw Blue back ordered from Book Depository for ages. I really want to read that one. Cannot wait to read your review. Also I just had A Fairy Bad Day on my last WoW and am anxious to read it too. Hope you enjoy all your books!

  13. I love the cover of Red Riding Hood - it's very creepy! I'm curious as to what the stories like.

    I also have Shiver on my TBR pile... I will get round to it eventually! :)

  14. YAY Raw Blue!!!!! I am so glad you loved it. It is one of my favourite books. Great stack of books :)

  15. Is that a heart? It doesn't look a very healthy one =) Clarity and Red Riding Hood are two I'd love to get my hands on. I haven't come across the bottom three in the picture before.

  16. Red Riding Hood looks like an interesting book. Can't wait to see what you think of it. I started reading Shiver this week. I can honestly say right now I am not impressed with it. I talked to some other people and they felt the same way about the first part of the book but they said to keep reading because it does get better and the second book is even better yet...:)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I haven't read any Maggie Steifvater books yet, but I'd really like to, they look really interesting. And I'd really like to read Red Riding Hood, I love the cover, looking forward to your review!

  18. Some fab books ;) Happy reading!

  19. Shiver was pretty good! I liked Red Riding Hood, but what bugs me is that it's not 100% finished. The final chapter goes up when the movie releases. The countdown is over at my blog and it's excruciatingly long!

    Here's my IMM

  43. How positively nice to run into my book in this blog post (I'm the author of "The Samaritan").

    My publisher gave me a "blog tour" list, so I was checking out lots of blogs and this one will be a nice addition to my bookmarks.

    I'm excited for the release and since I'm going through the promotional experience for the first time, I wanted to drop in and say hello, and I'm excited that this will be a stop on the "blog tour."

    And if the heart indeed looks unhealthy, that is definitely in the spirit of the book!

  44. I have Shiver and it looks so good, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. The Fairy Bad Day is such a cute title and all the others look really good!
