In My Mailbox #68: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon.

It was my 23rd birthday on Tuesday (Star Wars day, yay!) so I got a lot of books this week. Some were gifts (a lovely hardcover Percy Jackson boxset was my favourite!), some for review, and others I bought with birthday money. I've spent the majority of my week in book bliss, which is where I like to be! :D (If you want bigger pictures, just click them!)



Birthday gifts:



For review:



Bought (mostly with birthday money):
  • Year of the Black Rainbow by Claudio Sanchez & Peter David (Only available in the new Coheed & Cambria CD boxset - very excited for this!)
  • White Cat by Holly Black (Bought 'cause I love this cover!)

Happy reading, everyone!

I am so curious about what you think of The Chaos! The first book was ok for me but felt like it could be a lot better. I have that box set too and I'm so jealous bout The Red Pyramid and Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. Another awesome week for you. And happy belated birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday!!! I hope you had a wonderful day!

Awesome books! Hope you enjoy them all :)

Splendibird said...

You will LOVE Percy Jackson. I picked up the first one out of curiosity after reading about the film and then immediately ordered the other four. They are not only smart and funny but also a great way to ignite (or reignite) and interest in classical mythology. Happy belated birthday and enjoy your fabulous book haul!

Little Miss Becky :) said...

Happy (very) Belated Birthday - wow, an impressive stack of books. I didn't know there was a Glee book (goes off to investigate lol). I love the look of the Carrie Diaries.

Happy reading :)
