In My Mailbox (10)



In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, meant to spotlight the books we've acquired this week (via library, purchase, review, etc).

I had a pretty fantastic past 2 weeks in books, if I do say so myself.  Crap pictures again this week because I was too lazy to find my camera, so still through the Droid. I also unexpectedly picked up more books towards the end of the week but didn't want to retake/re-edit all photos, so...kind of a picture heavy post. Sorry!  

Library
Across the Universe - Beth Revis
Picked it up for my mom actually, I've already read it and loved it.

There Is No Dog - Meg Rosoff
I had to return the book before I got a chance to finish it, so I re-reserved and it finally came back in. Super excited to find out what happens!

Stupid Fast - Geoff Herbach

Legend - Marie Lu
Finally!!

Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver
I should proooooobably finally read Delirium, huh?

Purchase
Last week was my birthday but I didn't receive any books as gifts - so I thought I'd treat myself! I kind of went overboard (kind of...).  I haven't received some in yet, but these are the ones I've got added to my shelves:

The List - Siobhan Vivian
This was a surprise to see on the bookshelves in BN! Snapped up as soon as I could.

The Disenchantments - Nina LaCour

Saving June - Hannah Harrington
Loved it so much had to get my own copy. (review coming Monday!)

The Fine Art of Truth or Dare - Melissa Jensen

Starters - Lissa Price (signed!) + bookmark
Went to a local indie shop (Mysterious Galaxy!) specifically for this book; it was a nice
surprise to see it was signed! And got a free bookmark :)
My hand looks creepy. Nail polish change!
(And those wondering, I'm wearing: China Glaze - Fast Track, from the HG collection here.
The other polish in pics is also from the HG collection, China Glaze - Harvest Moon
With a coat of Nerd Lacquer glitter over.)
For Review
(thanks NetGalley!)

Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe - Shelley Coriell (thanks Amulet/ABRAMS!)
The Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa (thanks Harlequin Teen!)
The Summer My Life Began - Shannon Greenland (thanks Penguin Teen!)

  4. That is an awesome mailbox Ashley! Legend was cool, it's a quick, action packed book, with a totally kick butt heroine! And I am anxious to hear your thoughts on The Disenchantments. LOVED Saving June as well, one of my favorite books:) Your Net Galley titles rock, can't wait to read The Immortal Rules! And your hands look perfectly fine! Nice ring;)
