  1. I’ve really been wanting to read WITHER. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  2. I am so jealous of Wither!

  3. You’ve got great books! Enjoy reading them. I love Vlogs , however I don’t have the courage to do one of my own!
    Here’s what I got In My Mailbox

  4. I can’t wait to hear how Wither is! It’s up there on my highly anticipated list for 2011! Also very curious about the Jumbee…such an interesting cover! Enjoy your books!

  5. BOOKS GLORIOUS BOOKS! that is all.

  6. Booksploring says

    I really really can’t wait to get my hands on Room!

  7. Hooooooooly hell. Wither?! You’re so lucky.

  8. :O Deb Caletti! Lucky you! Happpy reading!

  9. I really want to read Wither. I’m also intrigued by Slice of Cherry. Hope you like ’em! 😀

  10. OMG! You have ROOM and the cover is SO cool. Will surely be waiting for your review on this one. I heard so many good things about it and cannot wait to read it myself.

  11. I love the cover of Wither – it totally makes me want to read it.

  12. Wow! I am so envious of Wither and Stay! Good week for you.
    If you want to check out what’s in my mailbox I’ve posted it here:
    Happy reading!

  13. Wither’s pretty high up on my wishlist right now, so I’m kind of desperate to hear what that one’s like! If the summaries I’ve read are anything to go by, it sounds like it’ll be exploring some interesting gender themes.

    I’m quite intrigued by the idea of Room, but I’m not yet sure if I’m intrigued enough to buy a non-YA book. I read a couple of Emma Donoghue’s LGBT-themed novels a few years back and I did like her writing style though, so this one is still a maybe for me. Hope you enjoy.

    • I rarely buy non-YA books, but I’ve read so many awesome reviews of Room, I thought, why the heck not. I would tell you what Wither’s like, but I won’t be reading it until closer to release date.

  14. Wow, you got so many awesome books! Stay and Wither look so amazingly good. I can’t wait to see what you think of them 🙂

  15. I am SO jealous of Wither! But you got a ton of books! Some that sound really good! I’ve been seeing those reviews of Room as well so I’ll have my eye open for a good deal, or will reserve it at the library. You are a lucky girl!

  16. Nice list of books April, I also want to read at some point all the Raybourn books you received so will see what you think of them later!

    My Mailbox is a mixture of Swap and bought

  17. Have been following you on twitter for a while but for some reason wasn’t following your blog until today!

    Great IMM post. Those books look brilliant especially ‘Slice of Cherry’ and ‘Wither’. How exciting to get a surprise package from Simon & Schuster

    Enjoy them all 🙂

  18. Briana @ Bree's Books says

    So jealous of Wither! Room looks really good, and I absolutely love the trailer for it.
    I can’t wait for Stay too!

    Happy reading, hope you enjoy! 🙂

  37. Room is one book I definitely want to read soon. I’ve read so many good reviews about it.

  38. Makes jealous eyes at you – SLICE OF CHERRY?! It is so long until that is released. It’s fine, it’s fine all that waiting will just make me more appreciative of it…I guess 😛 This is going to be like The Replacement all over again. Very cool pile.

    • I KNOW! I won’t let myself touch Slice of Cherry though, until it is closer to release date, because there is so much else to read.

      Also, the Replacement is awesome. You should totally read it.

  39. I love all the new books you received. I really want to read Deanna Raybourn. It’s amazing, how many books I received, I always want what I see others received.

  40. I am dying for anything by Deb Caletti and haven’t even HEARD about this one yet! Read it soon and spill the details please 🙂

  41. I haven’t read Deb Caletti before, will need to look out for her books. 😛 Hope you enjoy the Deanna Raybournes. I’ve heard good things about them.

  42. Oh. My. Hell. Awesome mailbox! You got Wither, and I’m so incredibly jealous haha I hope you enjoy all your books, and I can’t wait to read your reviews 🙂

  53. I’m interested in the Deanna Raybourn books. I think it’s great that you got all four together, you can read them one right after the other. I’ve heard good things about them. The books aren’t available locally so I may look into purchasing them through Book Depository.

  54. That Dark Road To Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn looks interesting

    here’s mine

  55. Oh, yay for the Raybourns! They are soooo good.
