In My Mailbox – a cutie edition

Posted 23 January, 2011 by Danny in / 19 Comments

Weekly meme from The Story Siren
The idea is to post the books you got this week,
whether you bought them, got them as a gift,
from the library, or received them to review.

This week’s blogger is cutie.
Hey howdy hey, party people!
With a heavy heart, I am here to report
that as of tomorrow the Spring Semester
shall begin for this Bookworm.
Did shellin’ out the big bucks on textbooks stop me from procuring new books?
Of course not (she says with a sheepish grin).
And while there are other
definitely more impressive IMM out there
I’d have to say I’m pretty darn happy.
As you will see,
I’ve been slowly making my way through all
Joss Whedon’s works, I decide to give Stephen King another shot
after reading his novel On Writing, I got a few “newer” releases,
and a couple of surprises in the mail from my fellow Bookworms.

Books bought:

Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
(bargain book buy at B&N for 1.99)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Volume 2: No Future for You

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Volume 3: Wolves at the Gate

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Books borrowed:

Carrie by Stephen King

Blockade Billy by Stephen King

The Lying Game by Sara Shepard

Serenity Volume One: Those Left Behind
by Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews, Will Conrad (Illustrator)

Books bestowed:
My fellow Bookworms sent me a signed copy of
crescendo (arc) by Becca Fitzpatrick, which made me squeal like a little girl!
I also received a copy of The Haunted by Jessica Verday to read and help review.
Annnnnd my copy of Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld came in the mail!
Truly, my fan girl squeals were heard ’round the world.

Tis what I know and what’s I’ve got.
 Make sure to check out other participating blogs/sites!!
But before you scamper off make sure to share with us
which books you acquired this week and
THE one you have been dying to read.
Pleasy Cheesy share with us!

Until next time– 
Yours forever truly,

    I've read Jessica's Guide. But I borrowed it from the library. When I saw it for 1.99 on B& I just had to get it. =) Her Jekyll and Hyde novel was good as well. =)

    B& has some great bargain books. You have to check them regularly however. You could get the hardcover of JGtDoDS for 3.99. I have the membership so everything is delivered for free. It's a fantastic deal.

    Amen, my friend!

    I have been trying so hard not to buy or rent too many books. Because I've got so many on my bookshelves already. But there are just far too many awesome books coming out and or those I haven't read yet that I just can't help myself! It's a disease, and I'm not looking for a cure. πŸ˜‰ Here's to many a kid free nights and a million fantastical books! *hugs*

    I will for sure review Serenity this week! I'm hoping I can get my hands on Vol 2 and The Shepard's Tale this week as well. =) We just rewatched Firefly and the movie this week/weekend. I'm soooo sad it's over. =(

    I'm all a twitter that there is going to be a Season Nine of Buffy (comics of course) plus I'm going to read Angel. Just need to pick them up from the library! Sooooo many comics. So little time. =)
