In My Mailbox -10-

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren every Sunday. In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that lets everyone see what books you have received or bought that week.


Mocha wanted in on the picture taking this week, so I figured I'd humour her. :)

For Review

None, though I am still waiting for several items to show up. I just hope that they are late due to the weather, and aren't lost.

Bought

1. Story Of A Girl - Sara Zarr
2. Fairest - Gail Carson Levine
3. Betwixt - Tara Bray Smith
4. Uninvited - Amanda Marrone
5. Cat's Claw - Amber Benson (Tara from BtVS - absolutely love that show. I have started the first book in this series, and am finding it very tongue in cheek - loving it completely, so I can't wait see what trouble Calliope gets into next!)

This week was a relatively inexpensive week. I went in to Coles this week and purchased the first 3 books on their discounted shelf. (Better yet, they had a buy 2, get 1 free offer). As for Uninvited, it is up in the book forum this week (along with Dia Reeves - Bleeding Violet and Julie Anne Peters - By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead). If you have read any of these books, feel free to pop in and talk about them in the forum. As a special treat this week, Dia Reeves will be in the chat on Tuesday at 8pm CST/9pm EST. Please stop by! You will need to register to chat, once registered the chat is at the bottom of the forum. We've had some fantastic chats already with authors Chloe Neill and Shelena Shorts. Hope to see you there!

That's what I received in my "mailbox" this week, what did you get in yours?

I'd be interested to see what you think of Cat's Claw. The Story of a Girl looks really good (although traumatic). Great collection! Enjoy! x

Give Mocha a hug from me! :-)

Your books sound really good. My students really liked Fairest. I hope you enjoy them and I love that the cat is in the picture! Too cute! Thanks for the comment on my IMM.

Interesting group of books this week! Fairest is pretty popular at the library, it gets borrowed quite a bit. Mocha is adorable :) Have a great reading week!

Amber Skye said...

I enjoyed Fairest a lot. I haven't read any of the others, so I'll be interested to read your reviews.

Haha it's nice to see all of Mocha and not just her butt and tail this time =P

I really liked Story of a Girl- it's an interesting story.

Kathy Martin said...

Great books! I liked Fairest. Happy reading!

The Library Lurker said...

Great books! Hope you enjoy them! I love Gail Carson Levine, and if I remember correctly Fairest was good!

Cat's Claw looks amazing!! I was just looking at it the other day.

As for Uninvited..... I am not a fan. I read it a while ago and now looking to give my copy away. I am interested in reading a review if you post it though!=)

Enjoy!!

Great books! Mocha is so cute!

You bought some good books and I love anything by Gail Carson Levine.

Dazzling Mage said...

I've always seen Betwixt around, didn't get to read the reviews around it. The cover is a little creepy, but in a lovely way.

Aw, Mocha is so cute!

Happy reading!
