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 #11

30 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.

I think I'm going to give up taking pictures with my new phone - the images always turn out either too dark, too light or unclear. :(

Angel Arias by Marianna de Pierres (Thank you Lalaine@ficbookreviews)
Back in July, I read Burn Bright and was spazzing about it on twitter, & then Lalaine decided to read it too. And ended up loving it! So then she requested Angel Arias for review, and kindly offered to lend it to me IF her request was accepted. hahaa, so here it is! I can't wait to read it :)

Stay with me by Paul Griffin 
I've heard great things about this book , and couldn't help myself when I saw it at my school library! Ehh...I hope I won't start bawling when I read this!

Elixir by Hilary Duff, Elise Allen
I don't understand why Elise Allen's name isn't even MENTIONED on the front cover? I own the second book (thanks to S&S), so I thought I'd borrow the first one & read  it! But I'm not expecting a wonderful, jaw-dropping novel...

Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley (thank you Jess!!)
AUSSIE YA <3 So excited to read another Aussie novel! Haven't read one in AGES!

Shut Out by Kody Keplinger (Thank you Kathy!)
I never expected this to arrive so soon! Maybe the book depository doesn't hate me after all :) I've read mixed reviews about this, but the majority have been positive. 

What did you get in your mailbox?

  2. I enjoyed Hilary Duff's Elixir, although I admit it wasn't anything I hadn't seen before. I was sent Devoted by S&S too, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

    Happy Reading!

  3. Great IMM! I got Graffiti Moon and can't wait to read it. It sounds so good. Elixir has caught my interest for a while. I might have to check it out. Hope you enjoy all your new books!

  4. YAY! You got Stay With Me!!! <3 That book is amazing. I'm really curious to see what you think. When I closed it.... *SOBS* I have Devoted too, but haven't read Elixir yet. So I'm also going to stalk you to read your thoughts on that too ;) I really enjoyed Angel Arias <3


  5. Brodie says crying is allowed at end of Stay With Me, so I really want to get my hands on it.

    Angel Arias = <3
    Graffiti Moon = <3
    That is all.

    I liked Elixir (It's got similarities to Lauren Kate's Fallen though), but Devoted was kind of ugh to me. Too much whining from the main character. I'm jealous you have Angel Arias. I've been checking my local Big W but they still haven't got any in. I'll have to make a city trip sometime.

  7. Shut Out is great! I hope that you enjoy it!

    My IMM:

  8. Really enjoyed Angel Arias and Stay With Me! ! Looking forward to read Shut Out :) I've yet to read Elixir too and I'll have to grab that for Devoted! Read Graffiti Moon yesterday - hope you like!

  9. Hope you enjoy it Shirley. Happy Sunday. :) <3

  10. I got SHUT OUT the other day. Can't wait to read it. Angel Arias was a great read. :)

  11. I love your IMM! And trust me, I'm an Aussie too and I love Graffiti Moon a lot! It's a really good book! If you want to, you can check out my review here: It won the Prime Minister award or something and I love it. I am also in love with Melina Marchetta's book especially On the Jellicoe Road. But anyway, enjoy reading! :)

  12. ohh, another Aussie blogger <3 I'm definitely looking forward to reading Graffiti Moon!
