In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren and she was inspired by Alea.

My mailbox has always been quite empty except for this week and last week. Last week I received 2 bookmarks from Saundra (thanks!) and I LOVE them. Hope the winners who won the bookmarks loved theirs too. And please ignore the site on the letter! πŸ˜› It’s the wrong URL. The URL should have been READTHISBOOK.WORDPRESS.COM. Anyway, I got the bookmarks within a week and it made my day.

Today I returned home after a exhausting day and found a package. I really think I have sixth sense, I had a very strong feeling that something was in my mailbox and voila! Thanks Elizabeth Scott for the signed bookplate and a copy of Evermore by Alyson Noel.

I don’t think In My Mailbox will be a regular feature because I can’t guarantee when I get books and when I don’t. But of course it totally brightens my day to see a book in my mailbox. All it takes is one book.

Pictures coming soon


Contest extended!

Right now, my 3 book contest has been extended!

The final date is April 10 which is two Fridays from now. Why? Because I have a LOT of homework to do, and two projects due and the authors are busy as well. I am so stressed that I want to pull my hair out. I’m not kidding. x___x I left a lot of my assignments till last minute. So now I’m cramming. Great.

It’s March!

Wow it’s March already. And today I shall officially open the site! πŸ™‚ Yay! Welcome to Read This Book! I wasn’t very productive during the weekend. Basically lazed around and not study for my tests. 😦 Finished reading Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston today and it was amazing to be honest. A mix between Shakespeare and Twilight. It has forbidden love and a frequent use of Shakespeare language. If you loved A Midnight Summer’s Night Dream, you would be sure to love this book. I will do a more detailed review on it soon. πŸ™‚

I am also trying to get more books as part of my site opening contest. So if you’d like to donate your book, please EMAIL ME at kate.readthisbook@gmail.com.

Current list of authors donating their books:
Melissa Walker is giving away a signed copy of Violet On The Runway and a bookmark!
Stephanie Hale is giving away a signed copy of Spring Breakup!
Tera Lynn Childs is giving away a signed copy of Oh. My. Gods.! πŸ™‚

Hopefully I’ll be able to add more authors to this list soon! =) Thank you authors for donating your books.

Hello world!


My name is Kate. I decided to create this book review site as I have always been an avid reader. Please respect me and my blog. I may sometimes think of ideas which might have already been done before but I’m not aware of so please do not bite my head for doing it. I am new to the book reviewing world so I would need your help in getting me out there. πŸ˜‰ I am still transferring my reviews and pages over so please give me about one day to get everything sorted.

In the mean time, I am trying to get some books for my opening day contest. [This message is for authors and publishers.] The book doesn’t have to be signed but if it is, it would be wonderful.

In exchange for that, I will be linking to your blog or a link to the Amazon page for your book for the ENTIRE month of March in every single blog post. I will be blogging about three to five times a week but if I have major exams it might be lesser. I’ll be very grateful.
