In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren where bloggers share what books we have either received or purchased that week.
This is a huge backlog from since I've come back from vacation. I (unwisely) chose to unfreeze my holds a few days before my return. Needless to say I am now inundated with way too many books.
From the library:
Dead Rules by Randy Russell
City of Bones (Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare
What Would My Cellphone Do? by Micol Ostow
Crush Control by Jennifer Jabaley
Forgotten by Cat Patrick
Belladonna by Mary Finn
The Forgotten Locket (Hourglass Door Trilogy #3) by Lisa Mangum
The Eternal Sea (Everlasting #2) by Angie Frazier
Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater (audiobook)
I had been literally checking my library account FOREVER, uh, every single day waiting for them to get it processed and on the shelf to me--that was a time when I wish my employee status got me the book faster.
The Ruby Notebook by Laura Resau
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Books of Faerie #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie (Books of Faerie #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
I procrastinated way too long to read Maggie's other books after admitting my love of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. I have no excuse for my failure but I will rectify it immediately.
Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen
The premise put me in mind a bit of Beauty Queens by Libba Bray so we'll see how it goes.
Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley
Kiss Me Kill Me (Scarlett Wakefield #1) by Lauren Henderson
Cloaked by Alex Flinn
And to add even more stuff to my mailbox I ran across some more unbeatable deals at both barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com for books all under $4.
I love, Love, LOVE this book and decided that I couldn't beat the price and had to have a copy of my own.My Life as an Experiment: One Man's Humble Quest to Improve Himself by Living As a Woman, Becoming George Washington, Telling No Lies, and Other Radical Tests by A.J. Jacobs
I listened to the audio of this book and it was so much fun--the things people will do for the sake of journalism. It's nice that you can read a chapter at a time for separate experiments he does.
Reading the OED: One Man, One Year, 21,730 Pages by Ammon Shea
Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
The Princess and the Bear (Princess #2) by Mette Ivey Harrison
Beginner's Greek by James Collins
Generation Dead (Generation Dead #1) by Daniel Waters
Secretariat by William Nack
Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers
If I Stay (If I Stay #1) by Gayle Forman
The audio version of this book had me desiring to stay in my car to finish it and if you knew how much I hate commuting then you would know how much I enjoyed listening to this story.
Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average by Joseph T. Hallinan
I have way more than I know what to do with but, still, I want to know--what's in your mailbox?
