In My Mailbox #2

 In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by The Story Siren


For Review:
I own two other Sarah Dessen novels - The Truth About Forever and Lock & Key. LOVED The Truth About Forever, haven't read Lock & Key yet. But I'm excited to dive into my second Dessen read!

Hadn't heard of this until I received it, but it sounds great and I love me some Aussie fiction!

Won:
No idea whether I'm going to like this. I've read both ridiculously positive and negative reviews for this, so we'll see!

Read this last year and loved it so I'm happy to have my own copy now! I want to try reread before the sequel comes out this year.

I haven't bought any books lately because buying myself smexy new pj's for the sudden winter chill coming in is more important than reading, sadly. But I want to do some pre-orders soon! So many amazing books coming out in the second half of the year.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  1. Hi Brodie! I'm back from reading. :) I haven't heard of the Comet Box too! Sarah Dessen's books are well-loved in Goodreads. I haven't read any of her books. CoFA! I know. It's either you love it or you hate it! I read a review in Goodreads in which the reviewer said that Cassie Clare shouldn't try to be like JK Rowling. But I didn't understand how that's related to the books (because I haven't read HP, right?) I can't wait to read your reviews! Yay for Raised by Wolves!

    Oh, smexy pj's! ;) Hope you enjoy Winter! I'm enduring summer here with tanks and shorts. I suggest you pre-order Ashes by Ilsa! It's 25% off at the Book Depo!

    Happy reading!

  3. Hi Brodie! I'm a huge fan of Sarah Dessen books . . . she's an amazing writer! Probably my favourite Dessen book is Along for the Ride! As for CoFA I think it depends what you like and don't like in a book . . . I didn't love it like I did with the other three books but I hope the fifth book makes up for what happened in the fourth book, since it was too predictable for my liking. Btw love Raised by Wolves! Great book.

  4. I loved The Truth About Forever too! It's my favorite of the Dessen books I've read. Lock & Key was good, but not as great as TTAF. I suggest you pick up Along for the Ride some time, that's my second favorite of hers. :)

    Ooh Raised by Wolves! I can't wait to read that. :)

  5. Sarah Dessen! I hear she's the queen of YA contemp books! I haven't read any of her books yet but since I'm doing the YA contemp challenge, I'll be sure to pick them up over the summer!

    Never heard of The Comet Box but I'm intrigued because it's set in Melbourne! Everything to do with Australia excited me, all because of you Brodie!

    You know I loved CoFA. I just hope you do too. Please PLEASE don't hurt me if you don't! Just remember that I keep a fork and knife on me at all times. So there's no point in trying anything, you'll just end up being eaten!

    Awww, poor Brodie has to suffer in the cold! Now you know how I feel up here in Canada! LOL it's getting really nice here right now. It's been raining all week but the sun finally came out today. I WALKED OUT IN A T-SHIRT! It was heavenly :)

  6. I have to admit that my love for Dessen has wavered over the years, but one of my all time favorite book is her novel, Someone Like You. I read it over 10 years ago which is INSANE to me, lol. I'll be curious to read reviews for this new one of hers.

    Enjoy your new pj's and happy reading! :)

  9. CoFA is good, but it's not as awesome as the first three Mortal Instruments books. I'm hoping the series will get better as it goes on, but I did still enjoy it, so I hope you like it! So jealous about What Happened to Goodbye - I love Sarah Dessen! And I have Raised by Wolves sitting on my bookshelf - I've had it there for ages and I've still yet to pick it up. Happy reading :).

    Happy reading.
