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 Half Price Books
As you all probably already now, Half Price Books is my favorite store of all time, so it's really hard to contain myself when I'm there. Surprisingly, during this visit, I only got three books!! This first one I got because it seemed really cute and something I would love to read. The reason I got A Place Called here, though, wasn't because of the book itself, but where it was from. I actually got the UK version!! On the inside flap, there are quotes from Irish Times and Irish Independent. I thought that was so cool! So obviously, I had to buy it. What can I say? It's not everyday you get to buy a book that was born in Great Britain!
I was lucky enough to win some more really great giveaways this week! I won an ARC of the paperback version of A Tiny Bit Marvelous from Snowdrop Dreams of Books. I won Abigail from a giveaway on Heather Marie Adkins' blog. Last, but certainly not least, I won Recovery and Absolute Obsession from From the TBR Pile in their Summer Giveaway Hop. Thanks for these awesome giveaways!
I got some really great books this week from authors and publishers! I already read one of Jodie Cooper's books (Forbidden Temptation of a Vampire), so I was really excited when she asked me to review one of her short stories from that series. I'll be having an e-copy to giveaway later this week, so make sure you stop by to enter! And, of course, I'm really excited to read the other review copies I received!
From Barnes and Noble
I barely buy any books from Barnes and Noble anymore because it always adds up, but when I saw this book for $2, I decided to get it. It's a love story and murder mystery from the 1930s. I've never read anything like it and I was really interested in seeing how it would end up. The 1930s are a time period that I'm not used to seeing in books, but I've always thought that it would have been an interesting time to live in. Now I'm excited to learn more about it and enjoy this love story!
What I Made
I made new buttons this week! I was getting tired of my old one because it wasn't that pretty, so I went on the search for some pretty pictures to use for my new ones. I fell in love with these two pictures, then used picnik to put my blog name on it! Needless to say, I'm happy with the result :)
That's it! What all was in your guys's mailboxes this week? Please share!
