In My Mailbox (2)

The In My Mailbox Meme was created by The Story Siren. I've decided to join in because I've enjoyed looking at what other people are getting in their mailboxes every week. This week, I'm going to show off a that I received from Teens@Random (which has recently undergone construction and has emerged much cooler). I also won a book from the readergirlz site and--get this--it's signed! I loved seeing the author's handwriting gracing my name!

Here are the two titles I received in my mailbox this week:
The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott. I am super excited to read this one. I love the cover and the reviews for this book sound awesome. It looks like a classic sort of love triangle/ best friend betrayal story. I am going to read this one in short order! (And, I love looking at that little note that Elizabeth Scott wrote to me!)

Thief Eyes by Janni Lee Simner. One may not realize this just by looking at me, but I love Iceland. I am intrigued by this island nation that is one of the most literate, creative societies on the planet. When I heard that there was a YA title that took place in Iceland, I had to have. Thanks, Random House for obliging my interests and sending me an ARC of this book. I can't wait to learn some Icelandic folklore.

This week, I tried to get Shady to pose in front of the mailbox. He loved being on the blog last week (probably because I got all excited and showed off how cute he looked to my husband) and wanted to be on it this week, but could not handle actually looking at me for the picture. In fact, he looked everywhere but at me. Silly Shady. We'll try again next week.

  5. Both of your new books look good to me! By the way, Huck is not a spin-off of Huckleberry Finn - it's a dog story.
