In My Mailbox – [the cutie edition]

Posted 19 September, 2010 by Danny in / 32 Comments

Weekly meme from The Story Siren
The idea is to post the books you got this week,
whether you bought them, got them as a gift,
from the library, or received them to review.

This  week’s blogger is cutie.
That’s me!
*waves enthusiastically*

This week was a verrrrry good week.
So, I’m not even gonna ramble on.
Let’s do this!

1. Books I got from B&N 
“aka the holy of holies”
“aka why would anyone shop anywhere else”
*sends a sly teasing glance toward Danny*
This week I stocked up on a few books I’ve rented from the library
and wanted to own. Plus, bought a bargain book that looked super
cute annnnd bought the sequel to a book I’ve been wanting to read.

books in the pic:
Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti (bargain book)
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
the truth about forever by Sarah Dessen
this lullaby by Sarah Dessen
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols (sequel)

I got my copy of this wonderment:

I am both terrified and excited.
I’ve sat down with the novel and explained it might be propelled
against the walls a few times, but not to take it personally.

2. Books I got from the Library
“aka my home away from home”
“aka where they give you books for freeeeeee
A few requests I had been waiting on came in this week,
plus a few books that continue series I’ve been following:

book procured from the biblioteca:
 Hourglass by Claudia Gray
Early to Death, Early to Rise 
by Kim Harrison
Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James 
The Language of Trees by Ilie Ruby

My favy fave is this unique little bit of wonderment:


David and Charlie are opposites. David has a million friends, online and off. Charlie is a soulful outsider, off the grid completely. But neither feels close to anybody. When David’s parents present him with a hot Companion bot to encourage healthy bonds and treat “dissociative disorder,” he can’t get enough of luscious red-headed Rose — and he can’t get it soon. Companions come with strict intimacy protocols, and whenever he tries anything, David gets an electric shock. Severed from the boy she was built to love, Rose turns to Charlie, who finds he can open up, knowing Rose isn’t real. With Charlie’s help, the ideal “companion” is about to become her own best friend.

I’z reading it now,
so far it’s the bomb[dot]com.

3. Pièce De Résistance

 Words fail me now, my fellow bookworms.
In fact, I might have…
no wait…
I did.
I died.
That’s right.
I have died and gone to heaven
where I am happily spending time with Patch.

  3. I just finished Clockwork Angel and I really enjoyed it (as with all of her books). I got to meet her this past week at the Smart Chicks Tour and she is so very nice! Some great books, this week. Enjoy!

    Oh noCUTIE!! You got Claire De Lune!? Eeee!! Have you read it yet? I wanted to smash it. But that's just me. Have you read Raised By Wolves? THat's another girl werewolf book. I didn't dig that one either. I'm still searching for the best GIRL werewolf book but so far have come up empty-pawed. I'm curious to hear what you think about it. I just can't stand how the authors are portraying these girls. I think Maggie Steifvater is our best bet at getting one right. ok ok…. maybe getting one that written that a Greta can love 😉 Clair De Lune just didn't speak to me. Her mom was like a robot and Claire was well… kinda wishy washy. But don't take my word for it 😉

  5. You know, I can't even remember why I requested Claire de Lune (might have been due to Twilight… yep I'm lame like that! lulz). I'm excited to pick it up however. And, as far as Crescendo goes…. I'm a bundle of excitement!!! Thanks for the comment!! =)

  6. I've been buying my books online a lot lately. The mister got me a B&N membership card for mother's day and you get unlimited 1 -3 day shipping for free. Plus the books are way cheaper online. That doesn't stop me from going to the actual store "just" to walk around. 😉
    WOW, 2.5 hours?! I feel spoiled. There at two B&N's within 15 mins from me.

  7. Dessen is awesome. I only just started reading her novels and I've been obsessed with them. I actually have a pile of her books (Dreamland, Someone Like You, and That Summer) from the library to read still.
    Happy reading to you too!

  9. Thanks for following us! I'm hoping to get to Clockwork next week. I really am scared of it. (because I'm lame like that). I should save it and read it when the very last book of the series comes out. It might save my sanity. But alas I know I won't wait…

  10. Oh my dear friend… I'm… Well you see… *shuffles feet* i'mnotthatintoshiver….
    Yeah… I know. I don't know if it's because I'm slightly perturbed that she's not finishing Lament or if I just didn't care for it as much. I got 100 pages in and just stopped reading it… then I had to return it to the library (I even got a late fee for the damn book!!). I think I'm gonna wait for the third and final book to come out and try again.
    I will make sure to report back to you asap with my thoughts on Clair. Pinky swear!

  11. I LOVE the truth about forever. I think it might be my favorite so far, however, I really really loved Just Listen. Owen is adorkable, which truth be told, is my Achilles' heel. I don't know what it is about a man who is a man-boy mess that loves music… they just give me the shivers. Wes, however, is an amazing character… so hard to pick! And lest we forget Nate (super sweet smarty pants hottie next door) and Dexter (the definition of man-boy mess musician). Can I just have them all?

    Yeah, A lot of people don't dig Shiver so I'm not gonna smite you for that BUT –!!! — UGgles… Once you read CLAIRE you're gonna wonder if her Mom was a robot. SHe was all like "Run along dear. I must develope my film. Let us not speak of this again." I mean… where's the emotion? Plus, the wolves (and you have to know there's wolves in it cuz lolz… I'm sure you do) just didn't speak to me. I totally will be interested in hearing what you think. I didn't have the stomach for it ;P
