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 #10

23 Oct 2011

n 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.

See something in common between these three books? They've got to be three of the prettiest 2011 YA covers!

From Publishers:

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Thank you Allen & Unwin!)
*SQUEEEAALLL* I've heard so many great things about this book; so I can't wait to read it myself! + Apparently Adam's reallllyyy hot? So excited <3

Emerald by Karen Wallace (Thank you Simon & Schuster)
Wow, how beautiful is that dress? This one is an historical fiction, set during the Middle Ages. I've always been interested in reading anything related to Queen Elizabeth 1, or the Tudors so I hope this will be another great read!


Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
So, I've been stalking this book and Leigh Fallon for like the last 5 months, ever since reviews have been posted up of this. My copy has FINALLY arrived! Can't wait to read this <3

From Author:

Dark Seeker by Taryn Browning (Thank you!)
I haven't read one single negative review about this and the blurb sounds really fascinating. This has also been recommended for fans of The Mortal Instruments Series, so I really must read this!

Blog Tour:

Mortal Obligations by Nichole Chase 
Is it just me, or does the cover remind you of Wolfsbane? The blurb sounds slightly cliched :" get through high school, convince her crush she is more than his best friend & little sister, and save money for college." But I have a soft spot for cliched novels :)

What did you get in your mailbox? Leave the link and I'll check it out!


  1. ahh youve got great books this week omg. I am so intrested with Dark Seeker! But never liked Carrier of the Mark i dunno i was so excited when i got this book but it didnt meet my expectation at all when i started reading it. the happenings/events where too abrupt for me. but who cares, its only me, :) great haul shirley! happy sunday. x

  2. That's what I'm afraid of :( I've been excited about Carrier since like AGES ago, so I have really high expectations, but I'm scared that when I finish reading it, it won't be as good :( Ah well...let's just hope I like it yeahh? hahaa

  3. Shatter Me is AMAZING!!! you will absolutely LOVE it! I really enjoyed Emerald, wasn't jaw-dropping amazing but it was a nice light read. I have Carrier of the Mark waiting to be read on the shelf!

    I hope that you enjoy all of your fantastic books!
