In My Mailbox (#17)

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren to show what everyone has been recieving or buying each week.

For Review

Matched - Ally Condie (UK Proof/ ARC)
Publisher: Puffin
Release Date: 2nd December 2010

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

Won

Entangled - Cat Clarke (UK Proof/ ARC)
Publisher: Quercus
Release Date: 6th January 2011

The same questions whirl round and round in my head:

What does he want from me?

How could I have let this happen?

AM I GOING TO DIE?

17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with table, pens and paper - and no clue how she got here.

As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget. There's falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unravelling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see?

Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is she here?

Bought


This one really needs no explaining. I found this in The Works for the bargain price of £3.99 and I couldn't not buy it. It will take me a long time to get around to reading this because I have so much else that comes first but I did have a quick flick through and it's very pretty!

Although I didn't get that much this week, Matched and Engtangled were 2 books that I was dying for. That easily makes up for not getting more books this week. If you have read either or both, which should I read first??
