In My Mailbox 7

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and originally inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie, used to showcase the books we bought, borrowed, got for review...

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Wintergirls bt Laurie Halse Anderson

Last week I swung by my library again... Who knew they had such awesome titles? I have to admit, Along for the Ride will be the first book I read by Sarah Dessen. But it's better late than never! I'm pretty excited to see how it is for myself.

I've seen a lot of excitement for Bitterblue lately, so of course I couldn't resist getting the first one. I have absolutely no idea of what it's about, but I love going into books completely blind, so that's no problem. That's actually the Spanish version, but they've mercifully kept the original title.

And then Wintergirls (whose Spanish title is Frío aka: Cold. No comments.). I've heard su many good things about this book, I can't wait to read it! It seems like something that'll make me think for some time.

I haven't read Graceling neither, YET. I have it home since November and still haven't read it. Such a shame :/ :P But then again, I still have time :)

Great mailbox!! :) Enjoy your books this week :)

Oh my gosh, GRACELING!! I can't believe you haven't read that book yet but now I'm so glad that you are -- that series is home to one of the coolest fantasy worlds ever! It may start out a little slow and confusing at first, but I promise that it gets so much better! (And don't be fooled by the silly name Prince Po -- he's actually SUCH a swoon-worthy character LOL ♥)!

I'm in love with my library just like you are -- it saves me from going completely broke all the time! x) It's also so cool how Along for the Ride is your very first Sarah Dessen novel because it was my first one too! It's absolutely ADORABLE, so I hope you like it. And I still need to find out what Wintergirls (a.k.a. Spanish Cold LOL!) is about! Can't wait for your review! :)

You will forever be one of the SWEETEST bloggers out there, Sophie!! :') Seriously, honestly. Your mailbox is full of awesomeness, and I hope that the rest of your week is just as amazing! A million hearts to you, ♥ Mimi
