In My Mailbox is a weekly meme devoted to sharing the new books we’ve received, borrowed, or bought. For more information, visit IMM’s fantastic host, The Story Siren. You can visit other blogs that are participating in this weekâ??s IMM here.
I haven’t done an IMM in months, but I recently grabbed some goodies through sales, trades, and the library. Here’s the haul from the New Year:
Bought on sale:
Tahereh Mafi tweeted a 50% off coupon for teen books through Barnes & Noble’s website. How could I resist? I picked up some books I’d considered reading, but never got around to because I didn’t want to pony up full price. Looking forward to these!
Received from trade with Ruby’s Reads:
Vesper by Jeff Sampson
The Jewel and the Key by Louise Spiegler
Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
The Native Star by M. K. Hobson
Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti
Under Wraps by Hannah Jayne
Under Attack by Hannah Jayne
Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Ruby is moving, and therefore trying to unload some books. This is a genius plan, and surely one I will copy when the time comes for a move of my own. I scored this shoebox full of books for the price of three hardcover pre-orders. Some of these I’ve read but didn’t own copies, and some I hadn’t even heard of but sounded cool. Full of win! Thanks Ruby!
Borrowed from the library:
The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie
Lover Avenged by J. R. Ward
When Gods Die by C. S. Harris
History of a Suicide: My Sister’s Unfinished Life by Jill Bialosky
Enclave by Ann Aguirre
Airborn by Kenneth Oppel
Hounded by Kevin Hearne
This was part of a set I checked out during my end of the year break, but still haven’t managed to finish a single one. I always get overly ambitious at the library, but thank goodness for online renewals, amirite? I covered almost all of my bases, too – fantasy, romance, historical mystery, nonfiction, YA dystopian, steampunk, and YA urban fantasy/paranormal. Eclectic, much?
That’s it for now. What books did you get recently?
