Mailbox Monday (88)

First can we talk about how well my Mailbox Monday books match this week? Not really intentional on my part, but hopefully it makes up in a way for posting this so late. Although it is technically Monday that I'm posting it, so I guess I could still be considered on time!
Mailbox Monday
From Paperback Swap
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Back in January I posted my review of Shiver, the first in the series. I can't say I fell in love with it, but I did enjoy it enough to continue. Maybe this is one series that gets better and better with each book, and I wind up a much bigger fan this time.

From Goodreads
The Forgotten Girl by David Bell
I don't know much about this one, but from the cover and summary it has a feel similar to Gone Girl which I loved. I've yet to read anything by David Bell, but maybe after this I'll be wanting to read more from him.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I really wasn't planning on buying this the day it came out. But then Barnes & Nobles e-mailed me a 20% coupon, and I figured it was I sign. I absolutely adored the first two Stephanie Perkins book, so I have no doubt, especially after reading the first few reviews, that I'll fall in love with this one too!

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And when was the last time you rushed out to buy a book the day it was released?

While you're here, be sure to check out my giveaway for 2 A.M. at The Cat's Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino!


  1. Looks like you color coordinated them :) I hope you enjoy them all. I can't remember the last time I rushed out to buy a book on the pub day. Have a good week!

  2. I usually do not run out and buy books. I wait.

    Love the covers.

    ENJOY your reading week.

  3. I didn't buy any books this week but the book "All the Light You Cannot See" became available for me at the library so I will pick that up today or tomorrow. I haven't bought a book when it was released in such a long time - probably not since the last book of the Harry Potter series was released!

  4. Like Lisa, I think the last book I bought the day it was released was the last Harry Potter book. I was in London, England, lined up at Waterstone's bookshop and my receipt reads "12:01." It was so awesome!!!

  5. I definitely liked Linger better than Shiver. I hope you enjoy your books!
