In My Mailbox #8

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!

This time I managed not to go crazy at the library, so I for once I don't have eight library books to list. But I do have a few fun things!

Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins (review)
The Giver by Lois Lowry

Even though I am supposed to be on a book buying ban, when I found out that Rachel Hawkins was going to be doing the release party for Spell Bound right near me, I had to buy a copy. I had a great time and really enjoyed the book! And The Giver was 25 cents on a Kindle daily deal – that barely even counts as a purchase!

From the library
I never said I didn't go to the library, just that I didn't go crazy! Look, I managed to walk out with only two books for an entire two week period! That's practically a miracle.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Death of King Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, adapted by Peter Ackroyd

From NetGalley
Railsea by China Miéville
Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi

Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson

My amazing friend Maria was generous enough to send me this book because she loved it so much. As you can see from the monster bookmark, I'm reading it now and so far I'm really enjoying it. Thank you so much, Maria!

And finally, it's not a book, but I did see The Hunger Games yesterday. I was really pleased; I thought they did a great job overall and the emotional scenes in particular were really good. Have you seen it? What did you think?

Leave your IMM links in the comments and I'll definitely stop by!


  1. Very nice. I also got Spellbound this week as well. Enjoy your new books.


  2. I'm jealous you got The Fault in Our Stars! I've been on the waiting list at the library for that one for a while ... it seems like I'll never get to read it!

    Happy reading! :)

  3. Hope you enjoy Spell Bound. I'm skipping it lol I got spoiled so I'm skippin it. I can't read The Fault In Our Stars. Way too sad but I hear it is amazing in the way that you will cry your eyes out! I've always been curious about the Giver. I hear so many good and bad things that someday I'll just have to check it our for myself. Happy reading!

  8. I'm "Spellbound" about your IMM. I'm sorry that was cheesy, but I couldn't resist! I hope you have fun reading them all!


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.
