In My Mailbox #85: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

I had another great week for books. I'm excited to read every single one that I got - I actually just finished A Little Wanting Song, which was really good. There won't be an IMM post from me next week as I'm at a Vampire Diaries convention all weekend, but I'll do a double post the week after.

So here's what was in my big red post box this week!


(They have really pretty spines too!)




For review:



Bought:
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (I prefer the US editions, and this completes my collection!)
  • The Ivy by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur


My friend from Waterstone's also nabbed a promotional Passage t-shirt for me, which I thought was pretty cool. Yay!




Happy reading, everyone!

Half Upon a Time looks so cute! Must look for that one. The Ivy intrigues me and I think I might get the Y.S. Lee book through the book depository since it's in pb! Woot!

Alison said...

Great reads. I just finished Iron Daughter this morning. Excellent.

BTW...in England is Waterstone's and Border's the same thing now? I thought Border's bought Waterstones.

Alison - Borders no longer exists in the UK. That's where I used to work, but the whole company went into administration last November. Waterstone's is owned by HMV, if that's what you were thinking of...
