In My Mailbox (22)


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! 


This week was a light week for me. Still trying to stick with books I own or have borrowed from friends. I returned a bunch of library books I never got to and resisted the urge to go in and look at new books. I even went to two three author events this week in bookstores and manged to only purchase a couple of things. So far, so good. :) On to the books!
My haul this week


Bought/Received

Fever by Lauren DeStefano - I was going to wait a little while to buy this but Alethea went and bought it while we were at an event, and I had a coupon. I couldn't resist.

Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer - Went to the Breathless Tour stop at Once Upon A Time last. It was super crowded but super fun. I restrained myself and only bought one book.

All I Want Is You by Sherrill Bodine - My friend Kimberly gave this to me. We often pass books back and forth and she just read this one. I don't think she loved it but I guess we'll see how I feel about it.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - I won this from Book Goonie last week! Really been wanting to read this one. It's got zombies!


Gluten Free Cookies by Roben Ryberg - I've been meaning to try some more gluten free recipes since I have a lot of friends who can't eat it now. I think of it as a baking challenge. This book had some pretty good reviews.

Borrowed


Fool Moon (Dresden Files #2) by Jim Butcher (audiobook) - I just finished Storm Front and I really like the audio. James Marsters is a great Harry Dresden.

For Review (Netgalley)


Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep - Excited that I got approved for this one. It looks good!

That's all I have for this week? What's in your mailbox?

  5. All I Want Is You looks exactly like the sort of book I'd love.

    Also? Fever rocks. It's just as enchanting and gripping as Wither.

    Happy reading :-)

  6. Oh my God. You have Fever. You have FEVER! I'm so insanely jealous. My friend pre-ordered it and I'm waiting for her to finish it and lend it to me.

  7. It's cool that you and your friends give eachother books! I wish my friends and I would do that, too, but they either don't read the books I do.. Or they just don't read. XD

    Happy Reading! :>
