In My Mailbox - 5/14/11

Credit goes to The Story Siren for creating and hosting the In My Mailbox feature.

I only got one new book this week, it was an unrequested review copy. I haven't read the first book, so I'm not sure when I will get to read this book.

The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

In the beginning there were nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth and went into hiding, who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives but who have extraordinary skills. The Mogadorians caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. They killed them all.
John Smith is Number Four, he has just met Number Six, and he knows the survival and the fate of Lorien—and Earth—now rest in their hands.
The first book in the Lorien Legacies series, I Am Number Four, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, earned great reviews, landed on several "best of the year" lists, and has been named an Indie Next Pick. With a major motion picture from Dreamworks based on the first book hitting theaters on February 18, 2011, the second adventure in this epic saga will leave fans hungry for more.

I haven't read I am Number Four either though I checked it out from the library. I don't know that I would have liked it. I may try to read it again another time. I know the book is popular. It had so many holds on it at the library that I probably won't get to read it till next year anyway!

Hm, I got this one too this week though I haven't read the first one either. I might just search up a summary of IANF and read this one anyways. xD

Happy reading!

I haven't read the first book, however I saw the movie. I wonder if they'll make a sequel to the film based on this one. Happy Reading XD

I enjoyed I Am Number Four enough that I want to read this one! Will be curious if it can stand on it's own or if you'll need to read the first one. Enjoy!
