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 #24

14 Apr 2012

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.

Allegiance by Cayla Kluver
I haven't read Legacy yet, but I've heard it's really good! I'll be reading this once I get hold of a copy of Legacy!
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
O.M.G I literally squealed and jumped around like a madwoman when I found this in the package from Harlequin Teen! The lovely people at Harlequin Teen ARE THE BEST <3
Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins addition to the amazing books above, Harlequin also sent along an ARC of Temptation! (releases in July) It's an Amish romance & apparently it's brilliant!<3 Can't wait to read this :)

Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris
WOW. I died a little when I received this! Unravelling has got to be one of my most anticipated 2012 releases!<3 Will be reading this VERY SOON.
Starters by Lissa Price
This came 2 weeks ago & I'll be reading it the next day or so :) I've heard mixed reviews about this, but I'm still looking forward to it :D
Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
I LOVEEEEEE the Aussie cover of Storm<3 Chris looks SO HOT here :) hahaa

Drive by by Jim Carrington
This one came as a complete surprise; it sounds like a fun read though! 
Night Beach by Kirsty Eager
Oooohh, the cover looks CREEPY. I'll definitely be reading this in broad daylight (I probably won't get much sleep if i read it at night!)
Winter's Light by M.J Hearle
Aussie YA books are AMAZING. Can't wait to get started on this :)

An enormous thank you to Harlequin Teen (seriously, I LOVE YOU GUYS <3), Harper Collins, Random House, Allen & Unwin, Bloomsbury, Penguin & Pan Macmillan for the above awesomeness<3

What did you receive in your mailbox? :D


  1. I loved The Immortal Rules! And you've even got Starters! Yeah, I've heard mixed reviews on it, too, but I still want to read it. I think you're lucky to get Unraveling as well...

    Awesome haul this week!

    My IMM

  2. Great books this week, Shirley! I hope you enjoy Night Beach and I am really looking forward to Unravelling!

  3. Awesome mailbox. I'm an aussie blogger too. New follower. :)

    Here's my IMM

  4. SHIIIIIRLEY! SO MANY AMAZING BOOKS! I got Unravelling, too (EEEE!), and I'm intrigued by Temptation... have you heard of it before?? It was the first I heard of it, and, umm.. Amish romance? Huh...

  5. Whoohoo! Amazing IMM, Shirley! Unraveling was fantastic. I can't wait to read your review. Happy reading!

    Ive got the exact same package as you from Harlequin! Arent they awesome? Great haul girl! Hope you enjoy all of them! x<3


  7. Yay for Unravelling! I loved that book and can't wait for you to get stuck into it. :D And I've never seen that cover of Storm before! I prefer the US one but I like that one too. So many awesome books for you this week, Shirley! I hope you enjoy reading them all. :)

  8. I wasn't a big fan of Legacy and yet I found myself addicted, and I feel like Allegiance was definitely an improvement. A ton of people seem to be really eager to read Temptation, and for some reason I'm not one of those people. BUT I AM IN LOVE WITH THE COVER, yo. I really want to begin reading Storm, and Lissa Price's Starters is tempting me, despite the creeptastic factor I won't be brave enough for XD

    Have an amazing reading week!


  9. Ooo, UNRAVELLING is great! I was surprised by how much I liked that one. :) I've been hearing good hings about STORM, too. Hope you enjoy a fun reading weekend, Shirley!

    Drive By is a great read and an unexpected surprise. Unravelling is fab too.

  11. I love seeing everyone's mailbox. Allegiance definitely has a pretty cover. Come visit me if you get the chance.


    You got Unravelling! GAHHHH. Preordered that one for my birthday. Doesn't it sounds FREAKING amazing??!?!? And all the reviews are saying it's FABULOUS. GAH. I want my hands on it NOW dammit!

    Starters! That should be good. I think Braiden gave it 3.5/5? He almost gave it a 4 so it should be good. :) Some say the romance was a bit unrealistic, but hey! See how you find it. I hope to get it sometime too. <3

    WOW the covers for Allegiance and Legacy in Australia are SO DIFFERENT to the U.S. covers! WOWZA. Which do you like more? THE IMMORTAL RULES. GAH. Preordered that so I'm okay. Hmmm what's Temptation about? Amish romance? INTERESTING.

    *squee* STORM! GAHHH. We all know how amazing that is. NIGHT BEACH. Oh I need to buy some books by this author! I hope I can find some of her books in Big W and stuff. All the reviews say that they're FABULOUS. WINTER'S LIGHT! I neeed to read Winter's Shadow. :S GAH. I NEED TO BUY MORE AUSSIE BOOKS!

  13. Wow you got a lot of great books this week. I also got Immortal Rules and will be reading that next. I just finished Unraveling and it was awesome!

    Happy reading

  14. Awesome books Shirley!!! I finished Starters last week and it was great but it still did not meet my expectations that there was going to be a lot of action i.e. non-stop. And you have three books that I got this week too :D TWINS!

    Enjoy ze books!

  15. No doubt that is one fantastic week. Hope you enjoy them all :)

  16. Awesome selection of books this week!

    Thanks for sharing,
    My IMM for this week -

  17. Great mailbox this week! I am SO jealous that you got a pretty copy of The Immortal Rules! I can't wait to read it (and it feels like it's teasing me because it gets released on my birthday)!! Happy reading!

    My IMM

  18. THE IMMORTAL RULES! SHIRLEY SHIRLEY SHIRLEY. DID YOU SEE YOU GOT A COPY??!?! *jumps on your bed* Squeeeee and STORM! Err, so you know I might have loved this. A little. A LOT. Aussie covers are definitely my favourite! And ooooooh UNRAVELLING. Dying to read that, everyone is ravinng about it. And Starters looks super good. Winter's Light is AWESOME. If you loved the first, you'll love this even more.

    Uh... Shirley? Did you know your mailbox is expoding from the EPIC? ENJOY!!

  19. OH MY GOSH, SHIRLEY! Your mailbox is too awesome for words!!! The first thing I had to notice was that have Storm, of course, which has to make you THE luckiest girl on Earth! I'm seriously debating on moving to Australia because all of you guys in my Aussie family seem to be getting this first LOL! Do you think you guys have room for me there? I'd probably be hiding in the corner reading that book anyways, if that helps! Haha x)

    And The Immortal Rules! Temptation! UN-RAV-EL-ING!! <-- That book is seriously one of the most epically original books I've ever read, and I'm crossing my fingers that you love it too! <3

    AMAZING mailbox, Shirley! Just because I had to say it again :') <3 I hope you love them all!

  20. AWESOME IMM, Shirley! I FINALLY GOT THE IMMORTAL RULES TODAY! YAY! I'm going to be starting that book ASAP! <3 I just finished Winter's Light and it was really awesome! You have to read it soon! ENJOY YOUR BOOKS!
