In My Mailbox #4

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, and it's an opportunity to show off all the books we've gotten!

I do my IMMs every other Saturday. Here are the books I've gotten the past two weeks. I've put myself on a book buying ban for the foreseeable future, so these were all at least technically free. Once again, I went a little crazy at the library. But I had to make walking there in the snow worthwhile somehow.

From the spectacular, magnificent, munificent, and altogether superior Jen of At Random

  1. Aw, thanks Kate **blushing**

    Nice haul from the library! Looks like it was worth the cold walk!

    1. Yeah, probably :)

      And I was excited to be able to use the words "magnificent" and "munificent" together. If only you were more evil; then I could have used "maleficent" too! lol

    2. Hahaha, I'll try to work on being more evil so you can use maleficent. Lmao.

  2. Once again, great haul Kate! I havent read any of those Kate so I'll wait to see what you think of them. Although I do have Evernight to read for my DB challenge this month. And I am about to start reading Touch of Power - I got a copy from the library before Jen went and did her awsome stuff...

    1. Hey, that's too easy! DB and BotM as the same book? Psshh. lol :)

  3. I might start having to use the library more. I have a problem. I can't seem to stop buying. So book buying ban starts now.


    1. Haha, I have the same problem with the library, but at least that way it's free! :)

  4. Amazing haul! I'm really excited about A Million Suns! Happy reading :)

  5. I really enjoyed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. I hope the sequel is just as good. Enjoy your books!

    My IMM

  6. I just finished Touch of power about 3 days ago. I loved it! Gave it 5 stars. And Finnikin on the Rock I've heard great things about, too. I recognise a lot of the covers here from my own (ginormic) TBR. Have a great week :)

  7. A Million Suns is on my wishlist! I hope you enjoy it!

  8. I got The Darkening Dream as well! I hope it's good, lots of people were saying awesome things about it!

  9. Great set! Touch of Power was fabulous. I loved Finnikin of the Rock.
    My IMM

  10. I love the cover of Touch of Power, I hope its as good as it looks! A Million Suns was incredible - enjoy! By the way, I love the name of your blog :D

    Stop by my blog


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
