In My Mailbox 140

This meme was started by Kristi of The Story Siren who was inspired by Alea from Pop Culture Junkie. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets unless otherwise stated.

For review:

From What I Remember – Stacey Kramer and Valerie Thomas

I am jolted awake by sunlight flooding the room.
What time is it? Where am I?
I turn my head and that’s when I see him.
The gorgeous boy lying next to me.
Oh. My. God. Max.
This is bad. Very, very bad.

At midday, class brainiac Kylie Flores is due to give the most important speech of ehr life. And yet somehow she’s woken up in Mexico, in a bed she doesn’t recognise, with the hangover from hell and the hottest boy in school – and they’re both wearing wedding bands.

She might be a budding screenwriter, but even Kylie’s vivid imagination can’t come up with the ending to this movie.

Rewind 48 hours...

So, so excited for this! Look out for a blog tour stop in the new year. Thanks, Electric Monkey!

Skylark – Megan Spooner

“There are stories, of what lies beyond the Wall...”

Lark Ainsley has never seen the sky.

She’s never been beyond the Wall that protects her city.

She knows the teenagers’ magic is needed to sustain the power of the Wall. But she doesn’t want to become the City’s power supply.

Her only choice is to escape; follow the birds into the wilderness beyond.

Into the Iron Wood.

Thank you to Random House!

Broken Illusions – Ellie James

It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

But for sixteen-year-old psychic Trinity Monsour, this is no time for celebration.

Another girl has gone missing.

And Trinity knows that if she doesn’t act, the girl could lose her life.

But someone is prepared to stop Trinity, whatever the cost – to Trinity, or to those she loves.

Should Trinity risk everything only to prevent what she’s seen in her dark dreams?

I haven’t actually read the first book, but thanks Quercus!



  1. You got some interesting books here. I like the cover for the Ellie James book. The blurb sounds interesting and something that I would read. I like the Book Haul memes because I always find some new books to add to my wishlist.

  2. Great new books this week! I love the sound of Skylark, I missed it when it was on netgalley- I'll look out for your review.
    Have a great week Sophie!

  3. Nice titles here, some of which I'd never have found out about.

  4. I have not read any of these, but I will have to keep an eye out for Skylark. Enjoy your books.


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
