In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren, in which book bloggers share what books they have gotten during the week. It's a great way to see what others are reading, and to discover interesting books as well!
Personally, I am a bit of a meme addict, so you may see me posting a lot of these. But anywho, here's a list of the books I've gotten this last week:
Such A Pretty Face by Cathy Lamb
The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe
(via Amazon Kindle)
Angelfall by Susan Ee
This One Time With Julia by David Lampson
I've already read Angelfall - it took me less than a day to finish it. Currently, I'm reading Such A Pretty Face, which I have a feeling may take me a while because it's a pretty good length (467 pages) and the story is slow-paced. I'm still on the third chapter, but I really like it so far. Long story short, it's about a young woman with a troubled past who had bariatric surgery after suffering a heart attack and lost 170 pounds. I really like the humor of the novel - I've already laughed out loud quite a few times this last chapter. Despite some of the serious topics featured so far, the story's overall feel seems to be rather light-hearted, with a witty female lead.
