In my mailbox , recent reviews and future reads - September 26th - October 2nd 2010.

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share the books they have received each week.

I decided to mix things up this week and include my recent reviews and upcoming reads on the blog.  As with a lot of blogs out there, I find that meme posts receive more comments than my reviews, so while you're here to check out the memes, why not check out the reviews too! :)

For Review: 



A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly


Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Two for review this week. Revolution is a book I've been excited about for quite a while now. I can't wait to get started on it. I also love the sound of A Gathering Light. I will be taking part in the blog tour for Revolution soon, so look out for that if you're interested in Jennifer Donnelly's books!

Single in the City by Michele Gorman
Fun chick-lit. A culture clash is on the cards when 26 year old Hannah moves from the US to London!

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld
 Good coming-of-age tale, but Lee Fiora is an acquired taste.


Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
Beautiful cover but the book was a major disappointment for me.


Future Reads:


After the mayor falls down dead in the middle of a speech, a clandestine student society claims credit for his demise.

Clare Vengel is given her first undercover assignment: to pose as a student and penetrate the society. A streetwise amateur mechanic, Clare finds university a foreign land, and has trouble creating an in with the suspects. She quickly alienates a popular professor and loses the respect of police superiors.

When another politician is killed, Clare kicks herself into high gear. She forges friendships with students and makes inroads into the secret society.

As the body count rises, Clare realizes that the murderer she has to unmask is someone she has come to consider a friend. She only hopes that the friend doesn't unmask her first.

I'm taking part in the blog tour for Dead Politician Society this week, and will be interviewing author Robin Spano. Hope you can stop by and check it out!

  13. You had a good reading week and you have some interesting books in your future. I didn't love Halo either but I kept telling myself that the author was only 16 or 17 when she wrote it. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!

  14. I have Halo out from the library and I tried to get into it, but I didn't get much further than the first chapter and after reading your review I don't know how much more of an effort I should really make! I wasn't feeling much of a connection to Bethany (at least not from the get-go), and if she's worse than Bella Swan...wow. I can see how that would be irritating. Thanks for the honest review though :)
