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 #13

12 Nov 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.

Smoulder (The Space Between) by Brenna Yovanoff (Thank you Simon &Schuster!)
Demons? Angels? DEFINITELY EXCITED TO READ THIS! I love the cover as well <3 I haven't read The Replacement, so I've no idea what Yovanoff's writing's like, but I'm looking forward to finding out!

Slide by Jill Hathaway (Thank you HarperCollins Aus.!)
This one sounds really interesting! The main character can apparently 'slide' into somebody else's mind and experience the world from their point of view! So excited to read this <#

Hushed by Kelley York (Thank you Entangled Publishing!)
This sounds like a dark, deep & unforgettable book! & from reading a lot of reviews, definitely heart-wrenching as well! Can't wait to read this! 

So, that's all I got this week :)
What did you receive in your mailbox?


  1. I've been wanting to read Yovanoff's book, The Replacement but I haven't! Smoulder's cover is just gorgeous! And yeah, I actually bought Angel Fire in Big W and was really shocked. You should read Angel! I can't wait to read Half-Blood too! I love the summary a lot! You also have to read Saving June! I'm currently reading it and so far, it's really good!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy reading too! :)

  2. Will be waiting for my Penguin package! Hoping to get the books you've all received these past 2 weeks ;) If not, I think I might have to have a word with Tina :P

    Here's my IMM

  3. Wow. Awesome books. Smoulder looks amazing and I've heard some weird things about Slide. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. New follower, Smolder sounds like my kind of book i'm familiar with Brenna Yavanoff's writing. But honestly its been awhile since i read The replacement but i'd say she's pretty good. Happy Reading!

  5. Great books this week, I think Hushed looks amazing and I have requested it from Netgalley. I hope you enjoy your books this week.

    Check out my IMM here.

    Slide sounds very interesting. I may have to try it.

    Here's my Post

  7. Smoulder definitely looks intriguing. Might have to make a note of that one. I picked up Clive Barker's Abarat yesterday and I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far. I still prefer the dark fairytale nature of The Thief of Always but that may change once I finish the Abarat series.

  8. Smoulder's been on my TBR list for a while so I was excited to get a copy from S&S too, although I've read the Replacement and wasn't that much of a fan. I found Brenna Yovanoff's writing to be sound, but I just couldn't connect with the characters. Hope Smoulder is different :/
