In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren and all you have to do is post about what books you received that week by mail, library, or store.

This week I'd like to think I hit the book jackpot. It may not have been in quantity, but it certainly was when it came to quality.

Jessica (member of my online book club/blogger/writer friend/super cool person) acquired a few ARCS that she was kind enough to share with our writing group. I don't know how it happened, but somehow I was going to have all three books at once so we diverted one of them to someone else first. Anyhoo, I received ARCs of Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and Across the Universe by Beth Remis (which both happen to be debut novelists) courtesy of Jessica. I've already finished Anna and the French Kiss and it was absolutely fantastic! Etienne is so swoon-worthy and I must say, that he joins Marcus Flutie and Jamie Fraser as my number one book crush (because I don't want to choose).

The other book I got this week was Jandy Nelson's The Sky is Everywhere. I have been wanting to read this book for MONTHS (thanks to the previously mentioned Jessica saying this was one of the best books of the year) and only put it off this long because it was one of my choices to get my book club to read (along with Hex Hall, Shiver and Before I Fall) and it became November's book. I'm SO excited to finally get to read it, it's not even funny.

Like I said, it may only be three books but the three I got have been highly anticipated. I've already pre-ordered Anna and the French Kiss (you should too) and can't wait to have my very own copy. She will be loved.

You can also order The Sky is Everywhere and pre-order Across the Universe.

Have you or do you want to read any of these? What did you get in your mailbox this past week?

  4. Awesome books you got this week. Across the Universe looks interesting. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  5. OH, the Sky is Everywhere really is SO fantastic. I totally agree with your friend, Jessica on that one. And I'm so psyched to read Anna and the French Kiss after hearing Etienne compared to Marcus Flutie (for the record, Joe from The Sky is Everywhere is pretty swoonworthy, too). Of course, Across the Universe is just fantastic, too.

    Great IMM. I'm a new follower :)
