In My Mailbox 12/5

Sunday, December 5, 2010

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week. It's so much fun because we get to see what our fellow bloggers stumbled upon this week and add even more to our piles of books! Without further ado, this week I received the following books:



I, Emma Freke - (For Review - Thank you, Carolrhoda & NetGalley) - What's in a name? I, Emma Freke is a charming search-for-identity story about Emma―the only "normal" member of her quirky family. Her flighty, New Age mom seems to barely have time for a daughter, especially one who annoyingly spoils her mom's youthful fa├žade. Emma's well-meaning grandpa is clueless. And her only friends are the local librarian and a precocious 10-year old adopted by the two old ladies next door. Smart, shy, and nearly six feet tall, Emma struggles to fit in at school, so she jumps at the opportunity to "home school" until that too turns into another of mom's half-baked ideas.

The Long Weekend - (For Review - Thank you, Savita Kalhan) - Sam knows that he and his friend Lloyd made a colossal mistake when they accepted the ride home. They have ended up in a dark mansion in the middle of nowhere with man who means to harm them. But Sam doesn't know how to get them out. They were trapped, then separated. Now they are alone. Will either of them get out alive?This gripping and hypnotic thriller will have you reading late into the night...

Matched - (Bought) - Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander.

What did you get in your mailbox this week? Leave me a link, and I'll be sure to check it out!

  1. Yay Melissa you got Matched! I just adored that one but it's definitely a love it or hate it book, so I'll really interested to see what you think. I've heard that a lot of people that read Delirium first haven't loved Matched and then vice versa. I'm reading Delirium now so I guess I'll see if that holds true:)

  2. I've heard mixed things about Match. I'll be curious to read your review on it. My mailbox was so sad this week! But it's bound to happen some time, right?

  4. LOL Melissa! I dont think I would have figured out the title if I hadn't heard you say it. Gawd, I love your accent. :D

    I LOVED Matched. I haven't read Delirium yet, but I know you have, so I'm really looking forward to reading your thoughts on how closely they compare.

    Great IMM! Give Stella kisses for me.

  5. I love your video! It was so great seeing and hearing you :)

    It took me a few times of hearing you say the title (I, Emma Freke) to get it, but I love it! I'm a sucker for word play like that.

    Your books look good and I can't wait to read your reviews! Hope you enjoy them.

    Your cat is so cute!
