In My Mailbox 23OCT11

In My Mailbox is something I participate in very sporadically whenever I feel particularly satisfied with the books I've accumulated in the past week.

From Amazon Vine:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi-I've been following her blog and added her book as soon as she mentioned that it was going to be published so of course I'm super excited to have scored an ARC. I won't be reading this for a while yet (other books call to me first) but I'm really eager to dive in.

From the Library:
Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown-I've read a couple of Griffin's other books and this one kept calling to me from the library shelf as I passed. Yesterday I gave in and checked it out!

Shut Out by Kody Keplinger-After loving The Duff, I knew I'd want to give her second book a shot. I've heard more mixed things about this one but at least it should be well-written and entertaining if The Duff is any indication.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin-I am a little leery of this as I've heard a wide reactions to the love interest (so dreamy! so creepy!) and I think I'll probably fall in the dislike category. Still this has been hotly buzzed and since it's a library book, if I hate it, I can just return it.

So that's my mailbox! Have you read any of these? What books did you receive this week?


  1. Ooh, Shatter Me was a fantastic read! Hope you like it!

  2. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on all of these! I hope you like Picture the Dead :)

  3. I did not care for the love interest in The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer but I still liked the book anyway because of the suspense. It reminded me of the Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike novels I enjoyed as a teen. Shatter Me looks really good and Picture the Dead sounds perfect for this time of year. I actually own that one but still haven't read it. Maybe I will dig it out to read in time for Halloween :)

    I hope you enjoy these and I look forward to reading your thoughts on them.

  4. I think I want every book in your mailbox this week :D

    Happy reading!

  5. Great book haul! I have Shatter Me on my shelf, dying to be read. Hope you enjoy all the books!

    Here's my IMM if you'd like to take a look:

  6. I can't wait to read Shatter Me. I know what you mean about Mara. I'm actually scared to read it b/c I have such a high expectations for it, I am afraid I am going to hate it! I hope that you enjoy your new books!

  7. Great set! I can't wait to read Mara Dyer. Shut Out sounds great too.

  8. I just got Picture the Dead, too--really looking forward to it! And I'm curious what you'll think of Mara, she tends to be pretty polarizing. ;)

  9. The Mara Dyer book sounds good. Enjoy all your reads.

  10. I love the books you received!! Great selection. I got Shatter Me after doing my IMM post and just devoured it!
