In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren; here we share with you, the lovely readers, what books came to us this week whether it be in the mail, from the library, purchased or borrowed.

This week is excellent; in addition to a few books, I GOT A NEW BOOKSHELF! It isn't anything fancy but is double the size of the tiny one I have now and I am very excited about the presence it will add to my living room! But the bookshelf is only as awesome as the book that goes on them!

This week in books...

I bought...

Both of these are the first in their series and I have heard great things about them; was very happy to find them at Half Priced Books and use my coupon!

I borrowed...

My seventeen year old sister has not shut up about the impact this book has had on her; its her favorite book and I bummed it from her shelves.

I was gifted...

Happy Easter to my from my Grandmother! It was a tough selection between this, Wither, and The Hunger Games but I went with the one I hadn't checked the library for; I have also heard good things about the Horsemen of the Apocalypse series. I was glad to have her gift me my first brand new book to christen my new bookshelf she also gifted.

That's all I've got for this week! What have you gotten in your mailbox!?


  1. Ooh, Hunger is one I want to read! Hope you enjoy Speak, too -- at least more than I did. Happy reading!

    Here's my IMM + giveaway :)

  2. Great mailbox! I have read all but Hunger and enjoyed them all. I hope you do too. My Mailboxes are here at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  3. A great selection! You managed to pick up great books this week, I hope you enjoy them all.

    I'm really looking forward to reading the Uglies series and I loved dead until dark, I hope you do too.

    Happy reading,


  4. I've actually been considering re-reading the Southern Vampire series to hold me over until the new season finally comes out in late June. Are you a fan of the show? Anywho, awesome blog, and you've gained a new follower!

  5. I loved uglies. I hope you enjoy it as well
    I also have read the second book but I have not writing the review.
    Hope you enjoy another books that you got this week

    It's all about Books

  6. Speak is amazing - I think every adult who works with teens/children needs to read it. And Dead Until Dark is a great read too - a complete change of pace from Speak! ;)

  7. Fab set! I want to read Dead Until Dark.

  8. My sister and I so not share the same love of reading and for her to be this adamant, it MUST be good :)

  9. I am indeed a fan of the show, though I am usually a season behind :( But I am excited to take on the series to satisfy me :)

    Thanks for stopping by & following <3 :)
