In Our Mailbox (Jan. 14-22)

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly event that gives book bloggers a chance to show off their book haul for the week. It was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren.

I don't know about Leslie but I was in a reading slump all week last week and I'm still reading Delirium. It's really good and I'm liking it a lot but I just couldn't sit still and concentrate for a long period of time to read it. It maybe because second quarter report cards were due, there were parent-teacher conferences last week and an all-around crazy week. We realized we haven't posted anything since Wednesday but Leslie and I promise to make up for lost time this coming week here on the blog.

Last week, we were lucky enough to receive a few books this week. I'm especially excited for The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta because after reading and loving Jellicoe Road, I've been wanting to read more books by her. Leslie and I are also eager to read Across the Universe but after all the buzz we're a little nervous because we have high expectations for it. Alright-y, here's our "in my mailbox":

  3. Great books all around! I'm interested to see what you think of The Water Wars. I liked it a lot, despite a pacing flaw :)

  4. Great mailbox! I can't wait to read Across the Universe!

  5. Jelous of your Across the Universe copy! Happy Reading!

  6. Thanks for checking out my post! You've got a lot of good books here this week, I hope you enjoy them! :)

  7. I really liked the Water Wars, and just got Across the Universe, too. Just started it last night...

    Great list this week, enjoy!

  8. I'm not familiar with the Piper's Son but I've heard good things about Across the Universe which sounds like a fun read. Though apparently there's been a recent outcry that the cover has been "whitewashed" which may unfortunately effect opinions of the book itself. The Iron Witch also sounds really good. As for Water Wars, the reviews of this one haven't been as positive but I look forward to reading yours.

    Have a great week!


  9. I have been dieing to get my hands on Across the Universe but lack the funds and there's none at my library yet. I can't wait to hear what you think of it though because I know I'm excited for it. The Iron Witch looks really good too, that's another book I'd like to read. This is a good mailbox I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  10. I can't wait to start reading Across the Universe, though I agree with you on the high expectations thing. I haven't heard much on The Water Wars or The Pipers Son, I'm gonna have to look into those. :)

  11. Awesome mailbox! I'm looking forward to Cynthia Eden's new books too!

  12. ATU has been on my list! Definitely need to get a copy very soon because I've heard it's amazing!

  13. Water Wars looks awesome! The cover is gorgeous! Great haul this week, and can't wait to find out your thoughts on Across The Universe! :D

  14. I can't wait to read Across the Universe and The Piper's Son, both sound amazing
