In My Mailbox (7)

I didn't get too many books this week, but I did get an awesome pair of rain boots and a brand-new laptop. Plus, my parents are considering buying me the most epic Halloween costume ever - I'm going to be a banana. A banana, people.

So, yes, I'd say this all more than makes up for the fact that I only got four books this week, which is a rather small load for me. Oh, and they're all from the library.

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. This is another one everyone's read except me, so I'd better get a move on! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, though, don't you think? I don't really like paranormal romances much, and I think angels are kind of weird, but I'm pretty sure it's the law for YA book bloggers to read uber-popular books. Besides, the reviews were great. And did I mention the cover?

Entr@pment, a High School Comedy in Chat by Michael Spooner. I'm currently reading this one, and while it's pretty interesting, it's not as good as I hoped it would be. Still, the plot is definitely original and I like books that have different ways of telling stories - in this case, through chat. I especially like that the chat is realistic, too, and is more or less how people talk online without making it incomprehensible.

Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about this one, but I decided to read it anyway, just to see how this really is.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I want to see the movie, but I figure I should read the book first, for once. I've always found that to be a better way, anyway.

What did you get in your mailbox? Do you ever read books just because everyone else has? What's better, in your opinion - watching the movie or reading the book first?

Haha, thanks :D The only problem with the banana suit is the bottom part sort of curves out in the worst possible area, so to anyone over twelve, it looks... umm... well, you know.

I haven't seen many reviews for Entr@pment, a High School Comedy (which I think sounds like such a fun read!) I very much look forward to your review. :)

Hope you enjoy all of these! Hush, Hush is a fun and addictive book.
