In My Mailbox (04.14.12)

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren.

This week, I got:
Divergent by Veronica Roth (Bought)

Quick thoughts about my mailbox and this week:

I've seen so much Insurgent fever everywhere that I was beginning to wonder what's the whole hype about Divergent. The summary didn't really catch my interest and the cover is a bit pretty but other than that, what's so special about it? After so many recommendations from others on Twitter, I bought the book and it's safe to say that I'm lalalaloving it so far! :)

I've only finished one book this week (which is bad bad bad! It's my last week of spring break, should have gotten more reading done...) and I loved it! Sweet Evil was just so fun. Review will be coming soon! In the meantime, you should check out my post below about seven deadly reasons why you should check out SE. :D

Recap of this week: 

Review: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
WoW: Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
Cover Discovery! Splintered by A.G. Howard

I really should read Divergent considering that I got it for Christmas and then left it on my shelf to collect dust. Enjoy!

Hi Gianna, good to know that you're enjoying Divergent. It's in my wishlist! So I am green with envy. Clockwork Prince and Cinder are also familiar titles I've been seeing in a lot of mailboxes over the past several months and book bloggers seem to pretty much enjoy them. Have fun with your new reads this week!

Here's mine over at GatheringBooks:

I read Divergent last year and it was just AMAZING!!! YOU NEED TO START IT NOW

Patricia said...

Divergent is, in my opinion, a very good book. It has some typical Dystopian features, but it explores many things farther than other books have, so far. :)

Don't worry, I haven't read Divergent yet either. But I want to! Maybe I'll follow your direction and somehow get my hands on a copy soon. =)

Great haul!
