In my mailbox #2

This year I won't buy any books until the booksale my country always have in the end of February,but still I bought some books yesterday. But all of them is free e-books so it's ok I guess. But I won't buy more ;)
Gravity (Gravity Series #1) (The Gravity Series)The Wonderful Wizard of OzLittle Women
(I could only find them on Amazon(in right cover) so it's the Amazon pics.

I also got some books from NetGalley:
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
I've already read this book
 but I wanna read it again,in Swedish.

Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader
I guess I should read the whole series before  I read this one.
The Truth about Breaking Up, Making Up, and Moving on
This book don't seem to be a fiction book so I
 will propably not read it..
Best Served Cold
But I guess I should watch all the episodes before I read this one
,I'm only on S01E21 or something.
A Shimmer of Angels
This book isn't out in the stores yet,so it's funny to read.
Also it is a pretty good book. It isn't bad anyway.
Saving June. Hannah Harrington
This book has a pretty good rating on Goodreads: 4.10

Last but not least,today I got a book for this "bookfriendcircle" that I'm in. Everyone buy a book in different genres,and then they reads it and then on a special day so send everyone their book to the next person in the list. I knew that the person above me had the genre paranormal romance,and I also know that she reads alot of the newest books,so I was a little curious about what book I'd get,but I didn't guess right. Okay actually I didn't guess at all,hah.
Next month I'll get a dystopian book,and next next month I'll get a fantasy book and next next next a middle grade book. Yeah,I've checked that up,haha x)
Anyway,thanks Petra for the book (:
Oh,I forgot to show it!
I've read the prologue and it seems okay. But then again,
I hate when people in books name's Finn.
Bad memories with Glee Finn. I dislike him.

Sadly I can't win this contest unless like everybody vote on Stockholm,but the Rafflecopter contest is open worldwide!

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!

The authors in the program are:

And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total! 

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown! 
I know this is only for the U.S and Canada - but if you guys all vote for Stockholm maybe they will visit us!
I'd love the YA2U team to visit Stockholm because we kind of never get visits from YA authors - and this is some of my favorite authors!
Besides,I bet that most of the authors have visited a lot of cities in Canada and the U.S on their usual booktours and also for fun.
But Sweden? That would be a fresh wind for them! And sure,they maybe don't have as many fans here as in America,but these fans are something different! Most of them(us) have never met such big authors,and sure not from the big YA world far away! We would love to have some big authors here,and we would propaply hyperventilate if we won!
This would be something new for us,and propably same for you authors! How often do you visit north Europe? Why not do it this time? :D 

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!

Me and Earl and the Dying girl

Title: Me and Earl and the Dying girl
Author: Jesse Andrews
Published: 2012
Publishers: Amulet books
Other books by the author:
Re-read: No
Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He only has one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time--when not playing video games and avoiding Earl's terrifying brothers-- making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don't make them for other people. Until Rachel.Rachel has leukemia, and Greg's mom gets the genius idea that Greg should befriend her. Against his better judgment and despite his extreme awkwardness, he does. When Rachel decides to stop treatment, Greg and Earl make her a movie, and Greg must abandon invisibility and make a stand.

Sadly,this book disapointed me. I thought it'd be hilarious and beautiful,and I loved the cover, but no. The book,it just wasn't as I thought.
The humour Greg had - the things that was supposed to make you laugh - they didn't make me laugh.

Greg was a pretty boring person to follow,and the voice in the book was sarcastic. I like sarcastic - trust me,I love sarcastic - but his sarcasm felt so..I don't know,boring?
Sometimes,he was funny. Like when he made up some different phone call ideas/conversations in his head.

I do that pretty often(conversations in my head) so it was something I could see myself in.
But still,he is and boring character who just looks down at himself and everything,and I don't like
 that! It's not that he think that he sucks or something(well,sometimes actually he does).

The fact that I don't remember so much about Earl except his family probably says a lot - but I must say that he was my fav. character and I kinda don't remember him anymore.And that says a lot about the book - it isn't something that edges and stay in your head - you read it and then that was that!

Rachel,well I remember that she had leukemia and that she felt boring and clingy. The story of her is "no i don't wanna be your friend! Okay let's be best friends you! Nonono you can't leave me her alone! I wanna suffer alone" and so..


The book wasn't even sad! When Rachel died mostly felt like "oh,that's too bad but yeah well,Greg said it in the beginnig" and that was the end of it!

The language was like .. nah.. I said that it was too sarcastic and boring and the jokes wasn't fun at all. It was Jesse's debut book and you don't wanna crush it too much,but I didn't enjoy the language. But it was easy to read and yeah,a fast read!

The story wasn't so interesting either,it was most "oh,she have cancer..let's make a movie to her because that's her last wish or something". If you want a really sad and beautiful and fun cancer book - read TFiOS. It has everything and it makes you laugh even though it's a sad book about cancer!
I know I didn't enjoy this book so much,but everyone else seems love it so you guys should probably give it a shot - who knows,you may love it! It's just that I didn't.

On goodreads,I gave this book 3/5,but now a time after I've reflected more,and no. The cover is the best thing about this book and that's just sad.

2/5 - It was ok but not that good..
