In My Mailbox #12

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @The Story Siren. All links go to Amazon UK.

Here are the books that I got this week:


Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
I never buy hardbacks normally and even though I was desperate to read this, I was prepared to wait for a more affordable paperback. However, Forever Young Adult is starting a book club and Beauty Queens is the first pick. I wanted to join in enough to pony up the cash.

Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Wither is a book that I did wait for; I've had this paperback edition pre-ordered for months and now it's finally here! The cover is so gorgeous; I keep looking at it.

Rites of Spring (Break) by Diana Peterfreund
The 3rd book in the Secret Society Girl series. It has one of the most lovable main characters I've ever read; I'm so glad I discovered Diana Peterfreund (even if I was a little late).


I honestly tried to avoid taking out more library books, but when they have so many that I want, what's a girl to do?

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
A 2011 debut that's been on my wishlist all year.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
This is also part of the 2011 Debut Author challenge.

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
This book was on my mind this week because I read it was banned! A school in Missouri removed it from its library and curriculum, so of course that just made me want to read it. I figured the universe felt the same way when I happened to see it on the library shelf.

So that's what I got. What about the rest of you?


  1. I really want to read Beauty Queens. Great IMM.

  2. A lot of great books, I feel your pain about library book (the temptation is too great!) Happy Reading!

  3. Oh my god, Twenty Boy Summer is so freaking awesome. Really, really, really good. Wither is too :) I haven't read the others though, but I hope you enjoy them :)

    Here's what I got in my mailbox this week :)

  4. Wither is my favorite book in 2011. Hope you like it too.

  5. I've seen Twenty Boy Summer around, but haven't read it. I didn't know it was banned! Definitely have to read it now!!!!! After reading the summary on Amazon though I want to - it sounds good!

  10. I'm reading Beauty Queens now and I'm having a hard time getting into it. All my friends say to stick with it though and it picks up. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
