Shiirleyy's Bookshelf has migrated to Dear Shirley ! I will continue to post book reviews but there will also be a lot of personal and travel-related posts :)

In My Mailbox #6

28 Aug 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, which allows bloggers to share what books they've borrowed, received in the mail or bought in the past week.

Waterfall (River of Time #1) by Lisa Tawn Bergren 
I accidentally came across this on goodreads one day, and after reading the blurb and some reviews, I knew I just had to read it! I have no idea whether this is out in Aus.? Don't think so otherwise I would've bought it ages ago! About time I read some historical fiction again!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (not pictured since I lent it to a friend)
I pre-ordered this a long time ago & it's finally out! Too bad, I probably won't get round to reading it anytime soon so I lent it to a friend who loves the VA series! Can't wait to read about Adrian again <3

For Review:
Glow (Sky Chasers #1) by Amy Kathleen Ryan [Thanks to Pan Macmillan]
I've read both positive & negative reviews about this, and I really want to read it myself. So, it's been compared to Across the Universe, but I haven't read that yet, so this is new to me :)

All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1) by Gabrielle Zevin [Thanks to Pan Macmillan]
So happy I received this! Am in love with Dystopian novels right now :) What sort of world bans chocolate and coffee!?!?! I've been recommended to keep both chocolate and coffee next to me while I read this,haha. 

Elemental: The First by Alexandra May [ Thanks to Pauma Publishing] 
Haven't heard too much about this, but the blurb sounds really interesting. Can't wait to read it :)

Far from the War by Jeffery David Payne [ Thanks to Roche Harbor Books]
This is a new YA Dystopian novel about a modern day civil war in the US. Interesting eh? I haven't read many politics-related novels, so I'm looking forward to reading this!

Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson [Thanks to Simon & Schuster]
I've heard so many great things about this book, so I was ecstatic when I received it in the mail! I finished reading it last night & absolutely loved it! Can't wait for the second book and Sarah Alderson's  new novel - Fated. 

So, what did you get in your mailbox?
