O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (http://www.thestorysiren.com/) Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library. I'm not sure I'll do this every week, but this past week was a good one for me.
For review:The Panic Zone by Rick Mofina, The Insider (via good reads) by Reece Hirsch. Bought:North of Beautiful by Justina Headley, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, before i fall by Lauren Oliver, Blindsided by Priscilla Cummings and Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell. I decided to invest a little time in the YA section of Borders. For the longest I've had a brain lock on Young Adult books, but recently my interest has gone up. I need a little perspective before I close my mind completely from the genre. I spent an hour in the YA section alone. I have to admit I was a little skeptical. Most of the books I saw were paranormal romance, and to be honest Twilight has turned me off books like that. But after a little digging, I found some books I liked. I went in the store with a $50 budget and spent $75. It was all for a good reason!! I bought Lipstick Jungle for two reasons: 1) it was only three bucks and 2) I figured one adult book would justify my other purchases!!!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
