In My Mailbox (21)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives book bloggers the chance to share what they’ve bought/borrowed/received! 

I hope everyone had a good week. It was really dragging for me and I am so happy that we have Monday off. I am going to try to get a lot of reading done this weekend. I have some catching up to do before a couple of book tours come to town next week. This week was pretty light for me. I am still trying to read books I own and have cut back on the library and buying. Edited: Um, so I went to the used bookstore and B&N on Sat and came home with a bunch of books. Guess this week wasn't so light. :)

Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Yes, I am one of the few people who have not read Delirium yet. I want to read it soon since Pandemonium is coming out.

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent (audiobook) - I had at least 4 Audible credits doing nothing in my account and decided to download some audiobooks. A friend said that this was a good one on audio and I've been meaning to read it anyway.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (audiobook) - Another audiobook that a friend highly recommended. Jason Isaacs reads.

The Mediator #1 & #2 by Meg Cabot - Found the first two books in this series for $0.50 each at the used bookstore. We'll see if I like it enough to get the rest.

Smooth Talking Stranger (Travises #3) by Lisa Kleypas - $1 at the used bookstore. I haven't started this series yet but, when I do, I will have book 3 all ready for me.

Devil In Winter (Wallflowers #3) by Lisa Kleypas - Can you sense a theme? Yes, I may be obsessed with Lisa Kleypas. I am dying to read book #1 of the Wallflowers series. I will probably get it on my kindle.

Stray by Rachel Vincent - Another series I've been meaning to start and only $3.50 at the store.

River Marked by Patricia Briggs - I love the Mercy Thompson series! This just came out in paperback and I had to get it for my collection.

After The Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn - I totally bought this just because of the cover. I mean the synopsis sounds good, too, but I picked it up based solely on the cover.

Borrowed (library ebooks)
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong - I've been wanting to start this series for awhile now. Thank you, library!

Fire by Kristen Cashore - I know. I know. I haven't even read Graceling yet but this became available in my library's ebook database and I had to snatch it up. Hopefully I will start Graceling soon.

For Review
Pride and Popularity by Jenni James - I really have no idea why this came to me. I don't think I signed up for it or entered any giveaways for it. Came from the publisher to my house. Sounds kind of interesting but I am not sure if it's really my thing. We'll see if I get a chance to read it.

  1. Delirium is so good!!! :) Enjoy!

    Our IMM!

  2. Yay for Delirium and Rachel Vincent! I hope you like them as much as I do! And you are not the only one who hasn't read Graceling or any other Cashore. I haven't either. Though now you'll have a head start on me with Fire. ;)

  3. I love the Carrie Vaughn cover too! I've seen mixed reviews about it, but I still want to try it out. I'm curious to see what you think.
    Hope you enjoy Stray and Blood Bound. Both awesome reads.

  4. Oh you got some great books. I only read Delirium myself recently. It is really good. I can't wait for Pandemonium. I absolutely LOVED The Mediator Series. The first 3 are good, but the last 3 are fantastic. And The Gathering, I loved that too. I hope you enjoy them all. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  5. OMG!!! Holy books. River Marked isn't my favorite, but anything with Adam & Mercy is awesome. I so want the Vaughn book. I still haven't read a Meg Cabit book. I know I'm missing out.

  6. Kristin Cashore books are amazing, I cannot wait to read Bitterblue. I thought The Gathering was pretty good too, it's a quick read. Great IMM, thanks for dropping by my blog earlier!

  7. YAY!! I'm so happy that you finally got your hands on Delirium! :) It was such a sweet book, and I think you're really smart for waiting until closer to the release date of Pandemonium because I promise the end of book one will kill you LOL! x) Plus, I've only read Rachel Vincent's YA series before but I've heard amazing things about her adult ones!

    Amazing mailbox this week, Thuy!!! I hope you enjoy all of the books in your super-awesome haul! :)

  8. WOW they look great, especially Delirium. I am also one of the people who hasn't read Delirium yet and just got it on my Nook. I hope you enjoy all of your books! All of your books look great :)
    Here is my IMM: http://simplykayla0203.blogspot.com/2012/02/in-my-mailbox-3.html

    happy reading1
    thanks for stopping by My IMM

  12. Wow, great haul! I also haven't read Delirium, but it's on my TBR list! And I really want to read A Monster Calls. I normally don't listen to audiobooks, but I might have to with that one, since Jason Isaacs is narrating! I also haven't read Graceling but I really want to read that one soon.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and happy reading! ;)
