In My Mailbox #109 & #110: 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've had 2 epic weeks for books - seriously, it's been better than Christmas in my house! I was away at a Twilight convention last weekend, so I'm posting both IMMs today. The con was amazing as always, and I met some cool actors from the movies. Now we just have to wait until October for the sixth one... noooo! Anyway, my mail this week has helped me get over my post-con depression, so thanks to all the ace people who sent parcels my way! :)

Here's what's new in the life of Wondrous Reads...

Awesome couple of weeks! I love those picture books:) I have been so tempted to get Angelfire so really looking forward to your review for that one. Forgotten sounds great too - interested to see what the cover will be as I've seen quite a few different ones.

Hope you enjoy them and glad you had such a great time at the convention

Ooooo Blood Magic! *jealous*

I am behind on my Septimus Heap books. I am stalled on, um, Queste. Hang on, isn't Magyk the first one? *confused*

You always get so many fantastic books! For one, Blood Magic and Forgotten?! So jealous, though I hope you enjoy them. Also, I loved Desires of the Dead so I hope you do too! Happy reading. :)

What kind of reader are you?
The Book Whore
Your a collector. You buy and buy (or borrow) books like your life depends on it. Your constantly broke and have a book on you at all times. Your running out of bookshelf space and your always reading a book. Sometime more than one! Your never without, whether at dinner, at work, hanging with friends, etc. You even have an emergency book stashed in your car! You want to read any and all books as possible.

The Book Tease
You try and try, but can never finish, or in some cases start a book. But it looks so dang pretty as a shelf ornament. You buy books that sound interesting, but when it comes down to it, you'd rather do something else with your time. You love books, but hate reading. The next time you decide to buy a book, just save your money because you know you'll never read it.

The Committer
You read. You enjoy reading. But you can never find that one AWESOME book that you've read before. So instead of trying to find a book just as good, you'll read that awesome book over and over until you've worn it out to the spine. You love that book so much you feel like a cheater when you find another book that's just as awesome.

Bex @ The Night Life Books said...

My god, how many books can one person recieve?!

Amazing!

Liz. R said...

No freaking way. You got Scorpia Rising?! AHH! I'm so jealous! Can't wait for your review! Angel as well - I'm gonna read it but to be honest I think Maximum Ride has gone downhill since it started. But Angelfire looks awesome, as does Night Star! Great haul, happy reading!
(Still can't believe you have Scorpia Rising. I'm so excited for you :P)
