In My Mailbox (2)


In My Mailbox is a meme that I picked up from The Story Siren's blog. It's where we share the new books that we've gotten for that week with our readers. These books could be from the library, the store, or from the writers/publishers for review. Whatever the reason, I will share my new books every Sunday! 

From the Library
 

Whenever I go to Barnes and Noble, I go straight for the teen section and look at all of the new releases. Since all of them are so expensive and I'd go broke if I bought them all, I always write down the names and reserve them at the library when I get home. These three books I got thanks to my trip to the bookstore. They looked good on the shelf, so I got them from the library. 

From Booksneeze

I now belong to the website Booksneeze where they will give you a free book if you review it for them. So, I got this in the mail a couple of days ago and needless to say, I was excited. I get free books if I tell people what I thought of them? Awesome! Hopefully I can read this soon and catch my next book from Booksneeze. 

From Half Price Books (The best store ever!!) 
 

I love going to Half Price Books and whenever I walk in there, I HAVE to buy something. The best part about the store is their clearance section. Everything is either $1 or $2, so that's where I have found a majority of the books I own because it's hard to pass up books that cheap. The total cost of this recent trip to Half Price Books? $3.50! How's that for cheap books?

From Netgalley
 

Now that I have a Nook, I can finally read ebooks! At Netgalley, bloggers can get free ebooks to review on their blogs. I registered and now, I can get even more free books to review! This week, I loaded these two onto my Nook and can't wait to start reading them!

  7. Haha, I do the same thing at the bookstores! Usually, I snap a quick picture with my iPod, then go home and request them all from the library.. It's sooo much cheaper! Glad to know I'm not the only one! :D

    I read Yours to Keep, it was pretty good, even though I haven't read the first books in the series. Hope you enjoy everything you got!

  8. I ordered ten things we did (and probably shouldnt have) from my library to, I have heard great things about it, I really hope I like it.

    Queen of the dead was a good book, not as good as the first one in my opinion but its still good, I wish I could order Wake unto me from my library, but noone has it :( oh well

    have fun reading this week.

  13. I've heard such good things about the Queen and the Goth series! At first I thought it wouldn't be for me, but now I'm starting to rethink my opinion after so many people have said they loved it. Anyway, great haul this week and happy reading!

  18. Awesome picks this week! I've got Ghost and the Goth on my shelf, but I haven't gotten around to it.. yet. And I thought I was the only one who went to bookstores to take a list! I always bring a notepad and pen with me to B&N, and then hop on over to the library with said list.

  19. Never heard of BookSneeze before. Is it a good site? I'm not sure I can take on another site, but if it's worth it I'm willing to try.

  24. Wake Unto Me is definitely already on my TBR list (and I have a special place in my heart for Scott Westerfeld's books, including the Midnighters Series).

    Thanks for stopping by! :D

  25. I browse bookstore shelves in order to scribble down a library list, too. :) Those hardcovers have to be really GOOD to be worth their price! I really like the Midnighters series. Hope you enjoy, and I'm following you now!

  27. I loved Queen of the Dead even better than the first book in the series! Such a fun series. Enjoy your new books!

  28. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree about the teen books. The covers are always so interesting, and I check out a lot from my library.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for dropping by the blog - I'm a new follower! I REALLY LOVE your background with all the quotes!!!

    The book I most want to read that you got this week is Queen of the Dead - that series looks really great and I need to read both books. I started reading a book that reminded me of that series - Generation Dead - and so far it's really good. Unfortunately had to set it aside for review books and haven't had a chance to pick it back up yet! lol

    I really hope you enjoy all your books and have a great week!

  33. Great haul. I do that too in the bookstore!

  34. Your lucky you can get such awesome books in your library. I'm living in Germany, but I rather read the original versions of novels than the translated ones. But sadly they only have a very limited selection of English YA novels in my local library, so I need to purchase all of the books I read. :D

    Ten Things We Did is really great, so I hope you enjoy it (and the other books you got) as much as I did!

    Have a lovely week,
    Carina

  35. Ten Things We Did is on my list -- looks like a good one. You've got some great books and I really like your blog background. Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great books this week! I still haven't been able to get my hands on wake unto me!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ohhh, Ten Things We Did. I really want to read this one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. How gorgeous is that cover for Pirate of My Heart. It is SO pretty. I have been thinking about Wake Unto Me for a little while but I haven't been too sure...

    Great bunch of books there.
