In My Mailbox #51

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where you can talk about the books you bought or received this week.


When You Open Your Eyes by Cecily Conway
(Amazon | Goodreads)
Tessa is in love with Lucien, the son of a European diplomat. He's French and sexy and artistic. With him, she realizes how naive and American she is, and just how alive she can feel.
But Tessa’s father forbids her to see Lucien. So they meet in secret, which makes their relationship feel all the more exciting.
The harder Tessa falls for Lucien, the more volatile he becomes. Suddenly it’s not just their relationship that’s breaking the rules—Lucien knows no boundaries. And Tessa must figure out how far she’ll go for Lucien…before there is no turning back.

I haven't heard all that much about this one, but it sounds great, right up my alley!

We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
(Amazon | Goodreads)
It's been two years since Conrad told Belly to go with Jeremiah. She and Jeremiah have been inseparable ever since, even attending the same college-- only, their relationship hasn't exactly been the happily ever after Belly had hoped it would be. And when Jeremiah makes the worst mistake a boy can make, Belly is forced to question what she thought was true love. Does she really have a future with Jeremiah? Has she ever gotten over Conrad? It's time for Belly to decide, once and for all, who has her heart forever.
This series is so cute and fun, and I'm excited to read the last installment!

Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
(Amazon | Goodreads)
Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything. So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?
I can't believe I've never read an A.S. King book. I've heard so many amazing things about her books, especially this one, so I hope I'll like it as much as everyone else did!

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. I keep meaning to read that series by Jennifer Han but haven't had a chance yet. A lot of my students are really into it. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  2. I've never heard of When You Open Your Eyes, but it sounds so interesting!
    It looks like a deep book about abusive relationships!
    Thanks for sharing :)

    I hope you enjoy all your awesome books!

    Happy Reading :)

  3. I hadn't heard of When You Open Your Eyes yet, but it has me VERY curious from the synopsis and the cover. Can't wait to see what you think of it!

    Nice haul. The covers are beautiful. Hope they're as good as they look. Enjoy!

  9. I've seen the first one somewhere- maybe it was here ;) It reminds me of "Because I'm Furniture" or something like that (the cover). I didn't know the paperback of the last Summer series was out. I have to get it now. I have the other two on PB -- not that I need it in PB (Twitter convo,lol) but it will match. (grins) I haven't even started the series.
    And Vera, it sounds cool but maybe too much for me but of course, you are one of my sources so I'll read the review and stuff. :)

  10. Hi there, just popping in... Nice! 

    We'll Always Have Summer sounds like a nice romantic read, I think I will add it to my TBR ile. Enjoy your reading!

    I'm also your newest follower!

    Here is my blog to check out:

    Our Imm!

  13. LOVED the Summer series. Especially the last book, so I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading! 

  14. I've never heard of these ones, but they sound good! I'll be looking forward to your reviews of them! Happy reading!

    My IMM

  15. Yeah, the covers are kind of similar. I hope When You Open Your Eyes is better than Because I Am Furniture, though, because I didn't like that one all that much. The PB of We'll Always Have Summer actually isn't out yet, comes out some time in April. But I'd pre-ordered it and it shipped early :) You should read them, they're cute and fun, but also have some depth. I don't know how to explain it, but they're good :p

  16. They sounds like some really interesting reads, particularly A.S. King's. Hope you enjoy them.

  17. Hi Hannah - Thank you for stopping by my blog Bittersweet Enchantment and leaving a comment. I love your IMM haul as well. I can't wait to When you open your eyes. The cover is awesome. :) I hope you enjoy reading your books.

  18. I picked Please Ignore Vera Dietz for one of my challenges this year. Enjoy!

  19. Umm... I'm guessing something went wrong? :p


Please leave a comment - I love to hear what you think!
