In My Mailbox (15)

In My Mailbox at The Story Siren

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, and inspired by her friend, Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a way to share the books that you've received over the past week. They could come from the bookstore, the library, a friend, your mailbox or wherever. It gives us all a chance to showcase the books that we've gotten, and maybe give others an idea for the book they want to read or buy next. :)

Netgalley: 

Fracture by Megan Miranda
Darker Still (Magic Most Foul #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber
The Next Door Boys by Jolene B. Perry
Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
Cross My Heart by Sasha Gould

Yup, lots from NetGalley this week, and I'm so excited for some of these, they sound fantastic...and I'm seriously smitten with the Darker Still cover! ;D

Fall Book Exchange: 
Fateful by Claudia Gray

I received both of these books from Cat at Cat's Thoughts. It was kind of funny, she emailed me about RAK at the beginning of October, and then ended up getting me for the Fall Book Exchange, it was a crazy kind of coincidence. :D Thanks, Cat! I'm really excited to read these two! :D

Bought: 
Lost In Time (Blue Bloods #6) by Melissa de la Cruz (Wal-Mart)
Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen
Unearthly (Unearthly #1) by Cynthia Hand
Immortal (Immortal #1) by Gillian Shields
Betrayal (Immortal #2) by Gillian Shields

I ended up picking up 10 books this week...but I don't even feel guilty about it because I bought 9 of these for under $15!!! :D I went to The Book Cellar this week before my night class, and they had a bunch of new YA titles in...as you can see I found lots that I wanted! The only one I picked up elsewhere was Lost In Time, which I got at Wal-Mart. :) I'm going to take my friend to The Book Cellar this Thursday, so we'll see if I end up with some more, I'm going to help her pick some, but I can't resist getting them when I see them! I was especially excited at Department 19, which I've been waiting to get...and it was $2.99 there! :D It was even cheaper after they discounted the whole thing...I'm seriously in love with that store! I've already read Unearthly, but I wanted to pick up a finished copy, it's such a pretty book! :D

----------------

Well, as you can see, I had a great shopping week on campus, and picked up some amazing titles! It's no wonder that I'm running out of shelves...correction, that I've already run out of shelves. :P haha Thanks to Netgalley, and once again, to Cat! :D

And how about you? What did you get in YOUR mailbox? Leave a link if you have one and I'll come check it out. :)

Happy Reading!!!

  2. Yeah I totally read it already *blushes*, I couldn't wait for the hardcopy to arrive so I ended up requesting on netgalley and reading it that way when it got approved :D The hardcover is so pretty though, I have a paperback of Stork and I think I'll end up purchasing a hardcover instead so they match.

    ALSO I am so jealous every time you post about this Book Cellar, it's on campus?! And they have new books like Unearthly?! For under $15?! okay that's enough exclamation points, but you are totally taking me there when I come to visit even though I am not allowed to buy any books!

    great netgalleys as well, I requested fracture too, looks so good!I think I requested someone else's life as well but it's a mid 2012 if I am correct so I don't expect I'll be reading it any time soon.

  4. @BookStacksOnDeck: You bet it was! :D Definitely! :D

    @Zoë: Thought so! haha Oooh, I love when books match, it just looks so good! :D
    Yup, it's right on campus...and I am in love with that place! Ya! This is the first time I've seen new books, but it's a good sign! I know!!!! I was seriously squeeing inside! haha I so will! :D It's an awesome place! :D
    Ya, I have lots that I'm not rushing to read, too, but if I have a hankering for it maybe I'll get to it sooner rather than later. :)

  5. Woah, awesome deals! I wish I knew a place like that, haha.

    I'm totally intrigued by 'The Next Door Boys'... I really want to request it, but I'm banning myself from requesting too much until I get caught up on reviews, lol.

    Enjoy!
