In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren =)

This week’s haul is pretty good- aside from a few books on precalc, I got two books I’m totally looking forward to reading:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Blood Red Road by Moira Young

ZOMG I am SO excited to read Blood Red Road, since I fell head over heels in love with The Knife of Never Letting Go, which, from the dialect of Young’s book, seems to be a bit of the inspiration for Blood Red Road. Awaken looks pretty good, too, although I’m not a big fan of the cover.

What’ve you guys got in your mailbox this week? Go ahead and drop a link, since I’d love to visit!

  1. Nice. I haven't picked up these books. Heard great things about both of them. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  2. Rita, Blood Red Road was amazing. I loved it. I have Awaken but haven't read it yet. I hope you enjoy them both. Thanks for stopping by Great Imaginations.

  3. I enjoyed "Awaken." Some parts of it felt a little slow, so the pacing wasn't exactly perfect, but the world-building was superb, and really easy to fall into. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  4. Hi Rida – thanks for stopping by my little blog and taking the time to comment. 🙂

    I have seen Awaken around, but haven't read it myself and Blood Red Road has been getting some pretty good reviews so I hope you enjoy it.

  5. Oh, I can definitely see why you're looking forward to those books on precalc 😉 Blood Red Road is wicked awesome, and I seriously hope you enjoy it; you'll have to let me know how Awaken goes!

  9. Aah, lucky you! I've heard great things about these two. Awaken caught my curiosity with it's blurb. And I'm really interested in Blood Red Road cos of the frequent comparisons with The Hunger Games.
    Have a good read!

  10. You have two great books it seems. I have always loved the cover of Awaken, it's so different and unique.
