In My Mailbox #35

Hey everyone, I've done another vlog this week! Yay! Two weeks in a row! ;) IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren :) Sorry for the atrocious lighting - I had all the lights in my room on but I couldn't make it any better... I thought a dark vlog would be better than no vlog! ;)

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger

That's what I got this week everyone, leave me a link in the comments and I'll come by and comment back!


  1. Great IMM! I've heard good things about After Obsession and Shut Out. Hope you enjoy your books! :)

  2. Ahh! You got Silence already?! Lucky!!

    Have After Obsession in my TBR pile as well! Can't wait to get to it and can't wait to read Silence either!

    My IMM goes up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  3. Shut Out looks so great! And I can't wait to read Silence! :D
    Happy reading :)

  4. Glad After Obsession arrived safely and I hope you enjoy it! You've really had some great books this week Bella. I'm looking forward to Silence too and like you, I thought it was the last book. Are there going to be 2 more?

  5. I cannot believe I haven't got my copy of Lola, yet. Your books look fantastic. Beautiful Chaos should be on its way and Shut Out is another book I can't wait to read. The Duff was such a fun book! Have a nice Sunday!

  6. Yay! Hope you enjoy Shut Out Bella, I got Lola this week too and like you read it super fast!!!

  7. So jealous of Jellicoe Road! I've wanted to read that forever! Shut Out sounds great, I had mixed feelings on The DUFF so we'll have to see about that one. YAY SILENCE!!!

  8. I cant watch the video but you got some awesome books this week! I hope you enjoy them all!

  9. OMG OMG OMG You got Silence already!!!! I still need to get it so I'm looking forward to you're review. Anyway Lola and After Obsession sound awesome as well. Fabulous haul!

    Check out my IMM:

  10. I couldn't hear you over my kids jabbering so I didn't watch your whole vlog. But I'm so jealous of Beautiful Chaos! And I'm still not sure if I'll read Silence, I kind of hated Crescendo.
    Awesome week though!

  11. I keep seeing Lola this week! I'm so curious about those books by now... You had a pretty good week! Hope you enjoy. :)

    My IMM!

  12. I really must read one of Kody Keplinger's books. I've heard they're both both very good! Feeling a little jealous of your copy of Beautiful Chaos!

    Enjoy your new books! :)

  13. I can't believe that Silence isn't the last book. I don't know if I am mad about that or no. I haven't read Cresendo yet, I was waiting for Silence (cause I really hate waiting). But I don't know. I'm looking forward to your review on Lola and Jellicoe (When you get around to it).

    ~Happy Reading!

  14. Oh, I loved Lola soooo much. :) And seeing Silence reminds me that I still need to get a copy of Crescendo. I loved Hush, Hush and therefore I have no idea why I haven't continued the series yet!

    Have a lovely week,

  15. Great mailbox! I am so excited to get Silence tomorrow, I've been dying to see what's going to happen next! Enjoy!

  16. I sometimes have the same trouble with the lighting!
    Anyway love the IMM =)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
