In My Mailbox (23)

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! 

Still on a bit of a book buying ban though I did stop by the library and picked up a *few* things. I went to the middle grade/picture book section and found a bunch of fun picture books as well as a few YA and one romance book. Man, I love the library.

Borrowed (library)

(picture books)

The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man by Michael Chabon - I am a big fan of Michael Chabon and am really interested in his foray into children's books.

The Loud Book by Deborah Underwood - Companion to The Quiet Book, which I really liked.

Stop Snoring, Bernard by Zachariah Ohora - Um, there's an otter on the cover. A really cute one.

Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnell - I've actually read this already but I loved it and wanted to read it again. Picture book about Jane Goodall that is super sweet and inspiring.

My Tattooed Dad by Daniel Nesquens & Magicomora - I have no idea what this is about but I loved the cover.

(other books)
Unclaimed by Courtney Milan - One of my new fave historical romance writers. Can't believe my library had this. Their romance section sucks.

Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez - I've been meaning to read this one.

Inside Out & Back Again by Thanh Le - National Book Award winner. I have a feeling that this one is going to hit close to home.



Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers - Thank you, NetGalley! I've heard amazing this about this one and cannot wait to read it.

Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas - I won an ebook of Lisa's newest book from the blog Queen of All She Reads. I didn't love the first book in this series but it was cute and I have high hopes for this one.

Unraveled by Courtney Milan (kindle) - The final book in the Turner series. I read Unclaimed and had to buy this one immediately afterwards. ebooks are so good for instant gratification.

What's in your mailbox this week?

  1. Me...Jane is one of my favorite picture books from last year. And I LOVED Grave Mercy and hope you do too! Great library books, by the way! I can rarely get anything I want or I have to wait months for it.

  2. These look great! The library is definitely an amazing place!! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM :)

  3. Oooh does that mean I can expect some picture book reviews on RNSL? Hint hint :D Great haul this week and good on ya for using the library! I did too but mine's all sewing books (and yes, you CAN expect some reviews from me).

    1. yes, hopefully. you know i am like the slowest reviewer alive but i definitely want to review these. picture books need more love.

  4. Ohhhh I've been meaning to read Virtuosity forever! Sounds amazing! And yay for us and Grave Mercy! Thanks for visiting My IMM!

  5. I love ebooks too! Especially when you're reading a series and need to next one asap, lol!
    Enjoy your books, they all look great :)

  6. Virtuosity sounds soooo good - I hadn't run into yet (but I'm newer to YA). It has so many great reviews! And Grave Mercy looks totally great! I'm the only one who didn't get it, I think (but my excuse is that I'm not on NetGalley really)

    I love that you do kid's books!! If I ever had time to do all my books, I'd love to review some of my son's b/c there are so many out there I'd love to promote. I'm an Acc Reader mom in the classroom and my 5 yr old is an awesome reader so we're all over all the books :) I'm going to get The Loud Book next library visit!!!!

    Thanks for visiting me!!!! Have a great week!

  7. Aw, *sadface*. I just had Virtuosity out from the library and didn't have time to get to it before it was due. Maybe next time. I hope you get to enjoy it, though! All of these look great!
