In My Mailbox


Hey everybody!

I had a good week this time and I'm super excited to start reading the books.
Too bad I read my books in order of release date and so these aren't super high on my list no matter how much I want them to be...
But soon I'll have plenty of time to read and catch up on my TBR pile since schools out in 8 DAYS!!!! (and its technically only 2 "real" days since 4 of them are dedicated to finals and the other 2 are only class parties)

Now on to the books......

This week I got-




1. Another Faust By: Daniel and Dina Nayeri

2.The Univited By: Tim Wynne-Jones

3.Once Was Lost By: Sara Zarr

4. Jennifer's Body By: Audrey Nixon

5. How It Ends By: Laura Wiess

You'll have to tell me how that "Another Faust" one is. It looks interesting...

Adele said...

They all look like interesting reads. Another Faust seems to be popping up across the blogosphere.Jennifer's Body is the one that really peaked my interest though. Isn't Diablo Cody working on a film called that? I wonder if that book was the source material?

Ooohh I'm so jealous of How It Ends!! I just posted a review of one of her other books :)

Melanie said...

I love the covers of Lost and How It Ends! They look really cool. Hope you enjoy all these great looking reads!

Tim Wynne Jones? Is he related to Diana Wynne Jones by any chance?
I saw his book recently and got me to wondering but I never looked it up. Curiouser and curiouser :D

You had some great books this week, Another Faust and How it Ends both have great covers. I hope this holiday weekend give you plenty of extra reading time :)

Read by date? You're disciplined. I don't read many new releases and glad not to have the pressure. :-)
Happy reading.

What an awesome book week! lots of great books! happy reading!

Liyana said...

The cover of Another Faust reminds me a lot like those television promos, or the main theme. Pretty! Happy reading!

Cat said...

I suppose reading your books in order of release date helps lessen the stress of WHAT DO I READ NEXT, ARGH! Which I have a lot of... ;)

Amelia said...

Great book week! I hope you enjoy them all!

Lizzy said...

The uninvited looks awesome, will you be reviewing it?

Jill said...

Cat-I think it's actually harder to pick a next novel. I always want to venture off to the books that release in September or something and then it makes it hard to get into the novel I actually read. Plus some novels have the same release date. But it's the only way I've read since I started recieving books so maybe the other way is harder....

Lizzy-yep I'll be reviewing it but ?I'm not totally sure when since it's like 4th in my TBR pile. But keep your eye out for it.

Everyone-thanks for all your comments (and to those who follow me) for following me. You don't know how happy I get when I see a comment or a new follower. It makes me feel like this is all worth it.

thanks.
Jill

Jill said...

I forgot to say to Adele that on the cover it says "Based on a screenplay by Diablo Cody" so maybe it's the other way around...

And to everyone if you really knew me well then this whole "read by date" thing wouldn't shock you as much. I am such a control freak things have to have an order and there has to be a schedule for absolutely everything. I am totally not a "go with the flow" person. Maybe one day I'll show you pictures of my "shelves" if you can call it that. Then you'll totally get it.

thanks.
Jill

It's exciting that school is almost done! Jennifer's Body looks good, I've heard of it before. And plus, I love the song Jennifer's Body by Hole. Happy reading!
