In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and is my first ever meme where you share all the books you received during the week whether it be from the library or in the mail post.
This week I got:
Torment ~ Lauren Kate (Library)
I wasn't all that keen on Fallen (review coming soon), but I also just saw this at my library and I am a bit curious as to how the story will develop...and I LOVE the cover (again!)
Abandon ~ Meg Cabot (MyKindaBook)
My TBR pile of my own books is getting ridiculous by now, but I have a feeling I'll be reading this very soon as it sounds fantastic, and I adore Meg Cabot - pretty much everything she writes is bound to be amazing!
The Forest of Hands and Teeth ~ Carrie Ryan (Library)
I've read excellent reviews for this, and thought I'd give it ago, although I am a bit sick of reading about post-apocalyptic worlds controlled by the government or similar.
Pod ~ Stephen Wallenfels (Library)
Seems like a very interesting read - I hope it lives up to my expectations!

I also got The Iliad and Frankenstein to read for Classics and English Lit respectively, as I've just started my A Levels, so I'm just warning you that I probably won't be reading/reviewing my own books as much :(

What did you guys get in your mailbox this week? Leave a comment and I'll be sure to check out your IMM :)


  1. I didn't think The Forest of Hands and Teeth was that great - mainly because of the main character - but I really enjoyed the second book in the trilogy! And the zombies are scary.

  2. I love the cover of Abandon... And I'm soo curious about it too! Have heard pretty different things about it. And I can't wait to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth either! It looks awesome. And you have the pretty cover too! \o/ Enjoy!

    My IMM can be found here!

  3. @Amber Griffiths Yes, I know exactly what you mean about The Forest of Hands and Teeth - I've read it now, and have my review waiting to go up, but I couldn't enjoy it at all. It's interesting that you enjoyed the second one, but not the first; I don't think I'll be carrying on with the series :( The zombies are pretty scary!
    Thank you for commenting!

  4. @Rebecca Ooh, it's gorgeous isn't it? :D I love the contrast and 'reflection' most of all, and the story sounds great too!
    I hate the American covers of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but I'm not too keen on the one I have either :P I didn't enjoy it too much, but that may just be me!

  5. Forest of Hands and Teeth is one of my all time favorite reads. Carrie Ryan's trilogy is amazing! I really hope you like it =)

    I read Frankenstein in high school. It was really interesting seeing how the classic relates to the Frankenstein we think of around Halloween.

    Great IMM this week!

  6. @Kristan Thank you for commenting :)
    I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I didn't like it all that much, and don't think I'll be continuing with the series :/
    Yes, it is very interesting how differing the ideas are! I've just started reading it, and am finding it a bit hard to get into but I'll have to persevere :P


I really appreciate comments and try my best to reply to all of them :)
