In My Mailbox (41)

August 19, 2012

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!

Guys, have you noticed that I haven’t gotten a lot of books from NetGalley lately? Aren’t you proud of me?!  I’ve been resisting it really well, I think. Which is good, because I’ve got plenty of NetGalley stuff to read already. Plus it give me more time to moon over the books that I buy for myself, like this week’s small haul. 

BOUGHT

Book cover for Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar
Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar. I have already read RAW BLUE, but now I can actually have a real copy of my own, thanks to UK publisher Catnip and fishpond.com. Guys, this book is one of the best Aussie contemps ever. It’s about a girl named Carly who has some horrible things in her past, and the surfer guy she bonds with who helps her move past them. Except it’s not as smooth and perfect as that little synopsis of mine sounds, and it’s certainly not cute. “Raw” is a good word for this book. Also AMAZING.
book cover for Dante's Girl by Courtney Cole
Dante’s Girl: The Paradise Diaries #1 by Courtney Cole. I just heard about this book earlier this week, and I decided to give it a go. It’s a self-pub, but it sounds really cute, and it’s about an American girl in London, and I can ALWAYS get behind that. Fingers crossed that it’s as adorable and fun as it sounds!

I’m so excited for the books I got this week! Hope you guys love what you got in your mailboxes, too!

    I like that cover of Raw Blue! Eventually I’ll have to order my own copy at some point.

    And this is the second IMM I’ve seen with Dante’s Girl, I think it’s a sign to hop on the amazons and check it out.

    Happy reading Amy!

    I want to read Dante’s Girl based on that cover alone! It’s so cute. Plus, I love the idea of an American girl in London – because I’ve always wanted to be that girl!

    Everyone has read Raw Blue!!! Aaahhh. I’ll eventually have to cave to it! And I agree with the commenter above…I’m seeing Dante’s Girl around a lot lately. The reviews I’ve read have sounded cute! I like these two, Amy!

Tell me what's up!
