In my mailbox (16)

I apologize for the immensely crappy picture this week, but I seem to have forgotten my good camera at our new house so I had to dig up my old crappy one in order to give you an IMM today. Once again, I payed a visit to my local library, though this time not wandering aimlessly around the shelves trying to find something but rather having browsed through the library catalog before going, which increased the success rate.

From the library:


 Ful (original title: Uglies) by Scott Westerfeld 
The Swedish title 'Ful' is an adjective meaning 'Ugly'. The reviews of this series have been a bit divergent, but I find the idea rather intriguing. And I do like me some good dystopia.

The Swedish title translates into 'Much more than you know'. I understand it is hard to fathom but I am actually a Sarah Dessen virgin. I have never read a single book by her but I thought it time to do so, so when I found this novel in the library catalog I grabbed it. It seems like the perfect summer read.

The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell
This is actually the Swedish translation of the novel, although they've decided to keep the original English title. I've been with Carrie and the girls for many years now, and still watch my shoe-box DVD collection of all episodes over and over. I am thrilled to meet Carrie as a teenager. Even my fiancé is interested in reading this book, since he watched SATC with me all the time.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  2. How wonderful to see some of my favorite titles in Swedish! I loved The Uglies trilogy. I didn't like the fourth book so much. It has different characters and story, though.

  3. I have only read two Sarah Dessen books. Both were quite differnt. I did enjoy them. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Along for the Ride, I've been wanting to read that one for some time.
