In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Stop by and check it out, and share your own finds!


This week was a fairly good one in terms of book acquisition. Not that I need any more books, mind. Or, I always need them, but never have room...

Anyway, I seemed to be getting books from all sectors this week.

Literally in my mailbox, I got my signed copy of Famous Family Nights, compiled by Anne Bradshaw. You may remember I won this on Goodreads (yay for winning, yay for Goodreads -- no matter what Nathan Hale says!)

I also broke down and bought the first volume of
Night World,, which compiles L.J. Smith's Secret Vampire
Daughters of Darkness and Spellbinder.

From my library's ongoing book sale, I got
Indian Killer by Sherman Alexie
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Belly Laughs by Jenny McCartney (no, I'm not pregnant. I've just heard it's really funny),
and Dragon's Breath by E.D Baker

While there, I picked up the purse load of books that was waiting for me, including:
Savvy by Ingrid Law (started this, loving it)
Ash by Malinda Lo (done, review to come)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
and Deerskin by Robin McKinley.

Lastly, from book club, I grabbed next month's read, A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton.

So good stuff this week. That should tide me over for a while.

  1. That's a *lot* of books there. I'm coveting Ash so much out of that list. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. I liked Ash, but I didn't love it the way I wanted to. It made me kinda sad, really, because I was really looking forward to it. But there were things I did love about it.

    Yeah, I do have a nice haul at the moment. It makes me happy every time I look at it. :)

  4. As far as I'm concerned, it's fun getting anything but bills in the mail.

  6. Walmart had the volume of Nightworld with the first 3 for under $8.
