In My Mailbox (10)

Sunday, January 20, 2013 12:51 PM
In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. Every week, bloggers post what books they've received. Over the last two weeks, I've drained my Barnes and Noble and Amazon gift cards. Gift cards don't last long with me. 


Bought: 
-Hate List by Jennifer Brown
-White Cat by Holly Black
-Red Glove by Holly Black 
-Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (reading now!)
-Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Borrowed:
-Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson (might be my Valentine's Day read!)
-Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

And I also bought a couple of books that were on sale for my Kindle app on my Ipad. 


Bought (Kindle):
-The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston
-The Woodcutter by Kate Danley

Then, I fell in love with this little guy. I could not resist buying this Vinyl Writer William Shakespeare from Barnes and Noble. There's also a Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe. Love these!


What did everyone get in their mailbox this week?

  2. White Cat and Red Glove are just AMAZING and Black Heart is such a stunning conclusion, so I hope you enjoy The Curse Workers Trilogy - it's one of my favorites! :D Also, Through the Ever Night is a fantastic sequel, The Poison Study is an innovative new start to a series I really enjoyed, and Code Name Verity is slow, but a heart-breaker. I can't wait to see what you think of all of these - enjoy! :D

    1. I've never read anything by Holly Black so I'm anxious to try something by her. I've heard great things about Through the Ever Night from pretty much everyone. I cannot wait to try The Poison Study! And Code Name Verity is pretty slow, but I'm intrigued to see why everyone raves about it. Thanks Keertana! :)

    So you're cute little Shakespeare, is he a figurine or vinyl car sticker?
