In My Mailbox #32

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by the wonderful The Story Siren where we get to drool with one another over the awesome books that came in the post this week.



I finished The Catastrophic History of You and Me today and LOVED IT!! It was so not what I was expecting, but everything I could have hoped for :) My review will be posted soon!  I have heard many mixed reviews of Pure - some love it, some hate it, some like it but had serious issues. I'm a little apprehensive where I'll stand, but I am intrigued to see what it will be like!

I LOVED Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, so I hope the sequel can live up to it's awesomeness. And Shattered Dreams, while also receiving mixed reviews, sounds great with visions, New Orleans, mystery and romance! Can't wait to get my read on!

What's in your mailbox this week?

  4. The Catastrophic History of You and Me sounds amazing and I will be reading it ASAP! I can't wait, especially now that I know you loved it. Jessica's Guide is a book I just purchased this week! I am excited to start reading it. I hope the sequel is just as good. As for Pure, I am going to be starting it soon, and we shall see what I think.

    Great mailbox!

  5. Eeeee! Catastrophic History! This one sounds amazing! I can't wait to get my hands on it, or for your review! You don't have a dozen other things on your plate, or a crazy February ahead, right? So you can review it now? Right now? Hmmmmmm?

    Oooh, Pure! Such a pretty cover! Ignore everyone else! Ignore me! I hope you love it! Aw man, I want To love it just so I can buy it and out the pretty cover on my shelf. Plus, it has some seriously cool, weird, twistiness you might like :D

    Also! Happy Sunday! THREE DAYS TO FEBRUARY! I LIKE February. It's book boyfriend month! And daily posts from Brodie and Lisa month! It makes refreshing your blog ten times a day significantly more productive! Or, if not productive, rewarding. Yep.

  7. No you didn't get Jessica Rules. I hate you >_<

    No, I don't really, but whatevs I'm still envious :P I'm excited to see what you think about that and Catastrophic. I've seen mixed reviews for it so I'm wondering what your take is.

    (I see you're embarking on Obsidian. Hope you love it! Tweet me what you think of it.)

    1. eee Obsidian!! hope that you LOVE it also! (sorry had to pop in on this reply comment cause blogger comment box hates me!)

      I can't wait till my copy of Pure gets here! I've heard mixed things about it also but intrigued to find out what I think! Look forward to your review!

      I really need to read Jessica's rules to dating the dark side, I've heard so much about it and all good things too! I've had Shattered Dreams on my Kindle from Netgalley for ages now, I really need to get to it!

      Happy Reading!

  10. Great book haul Brodie! I'm super jealous you got an ARC copy of the Catastrophic History book. Want to read that one so badly. haha. The Jessica one was alright but preferred the first book. And as for Pure, despite what I thought of it, I hope you enjoy it! Love the cover.

  11. Lovely book haul, Brodie! I've enjoyed first Jessica too, and hope this one will be just as good :) Happy reading!

  12. This is one of the post I keep on waiting each week, lol. I really can't wait to read Catastrophic History of You and Me + Jessica Rules the Dark Side! I'm still not convinced to read Pure yet so will have to check out your review soon! Awesome IMM as usual, Brodie! I hope you enjoy all the books you got this week and happy reading! :)

  13. I've nearly finished Pure myself and would definitely say it's worth reading. :-)

  14. Still haven't read Jessica's Guide, but it's sitting on my shelf somewhere.

    P.S. The Catastrophic History of You and Me? WANT! :)

  15. Yay, I'm glad you loved Cat History! The nicknames he gave her kind of threw me off for the whole romance aspect, but I still really liked it. :D I can't wait to read your review!

    As for Pure, I had a few issues but overall really enjoyed it. It's just very looooooooong, I feel like it could have moved faster. But whatevs.

    Aaaaand I have the first Jessica book but guess what?? Haven't read it. I know you're so surprised. LOL. I have a problem. ACTUALLY, the problem is that there are just way too many books in the world. AUTHORS: stop writing and let me catch up!! Haha.

    Speaking of, I am more ready for our force-each-other-to-read-a-book thing than I was the last time we talked about it. I still have a few books in my near future reading line-up, but I'm getting closer and closer to Divergent. !! :P

  16. Oooh Pure sounds good. I still haven't read the first Jessica book but I LOVE the sound of this series!!! I wasn't sold on Shattered Dreams, read just over a third and was feeling very 'meh' about the whole thing. I hope you enjoy it though.

  24. I loved Jessica's Guide and Jessica Rules is pretty darn good, although not quite as good as the first book. You'll love it though. And I'm intrigued my Shattered Dreams! Happy reading Brodie <3

  26. I'm seriously intrigued by Pure, but I'm kinda scared! I started it, but am so not getting into it. I'm hoping it'll change (like a friend of mine said it would), but then another blogger never got into it at all. ;o But I'll have to give it longer than I have now at least, so I guess we'll see how things turn out!

    As for the rest; The Catastrophic History of You and Me looks seriously good! *wants* And I wouldn't mind get my hands on Dating on the Dark Side either, lol! I'm glad you loved them so much! :D
