In My Mailbox (12)

In My Mailbox is a super cool meme hosted by The Story Siren, to give book bloggers opportunities to share books they've recieved.

I usually post an IMM on Sunday- but hey, I'm breaking tradition! It's not a normal week for me anyway- I usually get most of my books from the library, but this week has been a bit different- I only recieved two books and they're both e-books (typically not what I prefer reading, but this week has been one of those weeks I've felt like reading e-books...long story).

The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa: The sequel to The Iron Daughter, which I just finished and it was amazing. I am very excited to read this one. Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Teen!

Elixir by Hilary Duff with Elise Allen: This one interested me, and I'm about a third of the way through it. Good so far! Thanks to Pulse It, a division of Simon and Schuster.


That's all I recieved this week.

Week In Review

Reviews I posted:
Currently Reading:
  • Elixir by Hilary Duff
Upcoming Reviews:
  • The Line by Teri Hall
And on a side note, my NaNoWriMo progress: I am at 14190 words. I know, I am very behind! I got really sick earlier the week and I'm just recovering (also the reason I hinted at earlier why I haven't gone to the library). So that put me behind my quite a few days. But I'm not giving up- I'll still finish, I'm just going to spend all day today playing catch up!

Happy Reading!

  2. I've read Elixir and I found it to be pretty good, nothing too amazing. I also LOVE the Iron Fey series and can't wait to start The Iron Queen :)

  4. I have an ebook of The Iron Queen to read too. I can't wait to get to it. I haven't read Elixir yet, but wondered if it was any good. :)

  5. I've got The Iron Queen, too-- so excited to read it! Is the author of Elixir *THE* Hilary Duff? I mean, I guess she must be, but I still have a hard time picturing Hilary Duff writing away on a laptop in a cafe... Or maybe it's a completely different Hilary Duff, I'm googling it. Anyway, babbling aside, hope you enjoy reading both of these. :)

  6. @Kat: Yeah, it is "the" Hilary Duff :), the actress/singer, though I don't know how much of the book she actually wrote, considering it's listed as "Hilary Duff with Elise Allen". But her name attached to it made me curious enough to read it!

  9. Ooh, Elixir. I keep thinking about it, but then I think 'what if she only got the book deal b/c she's famous... and it's only out in hardback atm... blah blah'. Anyway, I hope it's great and you leave a review for it! Have a great week. :-)

Thanks for the comments! I read every single one and try to reply, either on your blog or another comment! They make my day!

As of 1/17/11, Book Infinity is an awards-free blog. My schedule is busy as could be, and I don't have time to follow all the rules to pass them on. But I really do appreciate the thought, thanks so much for thinking about me!
