In My Mailbox (33)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren.
I got two books this week:
1. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins
I'm so excited for these books! I loved Anna and the French Kiss and I've been waiting all year for the release of Lola and the Boy Next Door and I'm so happy I've got a chance to read it now. Only problem is, I'm now anticipating Isla and the Happily Ever After. Never satisfied! Also, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is another hotly anticipated book that has been hyped to the heavens and I'm so excited to read it and only hope it's as good as everybody says it is :-)

I need Lola in my life! I'm so jealous of everyone who has got it!

I've read mixed reviews about Mara Dyer... but that cover, I love it!~
I hope it's good!
Happy reading :)

I got Lola this week too :D I actually haven't read Anna yet, but hear I am in for a treat!!!

I do that with so many books - I eagerly await book n in the series, then get it, read it far too quickly, and have another year to wait for book n+1. :) It's a little frustrating, but it's nice to have authors that you can depend on that much to give you a story you enjoy.

Here's my postbox this week: The Book Bundle

I absolutely loved Lola and the Boy Next Door! I think Anna was slightly better, but Lola was great. I just love Anna and St Clair too much, I guess.

@jowearsoldcoats - Thanks :) I love the Mara Dyer cover too!

@District YA - you definitely are :) Anna is amazing!

@Alisa - Me too! I wish I could wait until all the books are out to enjoy them one after the other but I can't seem to help myself :)

@Amanda Welling - Thanks :) It looks like you've got a lot of great things going on at the moment. I'll be sure to pop on by!

@Amber - I'm interested to see how Lola will compare to Anna :) I'm glad you loved it though.

Fab set! Yay for Lola. I can't wait to read Mara Dyer.

Amber said...

Even if you like Mara Dyer half as much as I did then you'll love it! I haven't gotten around to reading Anna or Lola but I can't wait. Happy reading!

@Amber - I'm so excited to read Mara Dyer now! Thanks :)
