In My Mailbox #6


In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren once a week which explores the weekly contents of your mailbox and books bought.

Forget You by Jennifer Echols (MTV/July 20th 2010)

WHY CAN’T YOU CHOOSE WHAT YOU FORGET . . . AND WHAT YOU REMEMBER?

There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four- year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. Feeling like her life is about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon. But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people— suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.

I was so excited when this turned up in my mailbox. It seemed liked I’d been waiting for ages since it was shipped. Once I received this I basically bunkered down for the rest of the day and read it in one sitting, oh Jennifer Echols I am in love with your books! Review to come soon.

Insatiable by Meg Cabot (William Morrow /June 8th 2010)

Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.


But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.

Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her; no one ever does).

But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future . . .

If she even has one.

This one was also shipped to me because you can’t get it in Australia yet and I just couldn’t wait until it was released, I thank my lucky starts for the book depository, I am in love with that site! Anyway, with my love for the book depository out of the way I’ve nearly finished this book and am thoroughly enjoying it, I can’t stop laughing which I wasn’t expecting.

Well that’s it from me, I hope you guys all had a great week, what books did you receive?

oh, I am so addicted to the book depository, even more so when the Aussie dollar is going strong and the conversion rate particularly inspires me :) For once, I care about the strength of our dollar, haha.

I read forget You too, but was a bit disappointed (i know, I'm definitely in the minority there, although I did read it in one day, she is addictive).
