In My Mailbox Vol. 4

Books & Sensibility is taking part in the In My Mailbox meme started by The Story Siren. Each week bloggers post books that have arrived in their mailbox, picked up from the bookstore or purchased. Here are some books I'm getting ready to read.

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen 

After hearing Dessen talk about her inspiration for the novel at the National Book Festival I was clamoring to get this book. I was going to order it online when I had some money, but then I saw it for 4.50 at the used bookstore ! I just had to get it.

Soulless by Gail Carriger 

 Jess was looking for books for the 2011 Spooktacular Paranormal Reading Challenge at the used bookstore. I showed her this at random, but we left it at the store Then, I saw a video on YouTube of how they make the covers for these books and I decided to go back for it. I read some of it while sitting in the drive through at McDonald's (I know, I know) and it seems pretty good.

 Devlish by Maureen Johnson 

 This is from the library-- free books ! I am excited for Maureen Johnson's new book, The Name of The Star, but have never actually read her other books. This was the first one I saw in the library so, I grabbed it.


  1. Just Listen is one of my favourite Dessen novels. I hope you like it! And that cover for Devilish is ridiculously adorable.

    My IMM is over here if you'd like to stop by. Happy reading!

  2. I have my eyes on Soulless by Gail Carriger and I hope you review it so soon.

    Happy Reading...

  8. Just Listen is a very good book. I kind of put it down and picked it up again and put it down. I will start this book all over sometime. By the way, I will write a review on Faking 19 by Alyson Noel after I finish my reviews on Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen and How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr. Thank you for stopping by. I will let you know when I've finished writing review on Faking 19. Awesome In My Mailbox!!
