In My Mailbox (7)

I know that this is a day early, but I work tomorrow and I know that I'm going to be sooooo tired when I get home.

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren; it's an amazing blog, go check it out. It’s one of those great memes that lets you see who’s buying what and it introduces you to some amazing new blogs as well.

This week was a great week for book buying since I was able to hit up some used books stores along with Half Price Books and Chapters.

On a side note about Half Price Books, I’ve never seen one in Canada other than the one that’s here where I am, and I’ve been all over Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Are there any other Canadian bloggers out there that have been to a Half Price Books in Canada? I know that they’re popular State-side, but not here I guess.

Anyways, here’s what I was able to pick up at Half Price Books;

Something Borrowed – Paul Magrs
I have been looking for this book for MONTHS ever since I read the first one. I can’t wait to read more about Brenda and her supernatural town.
The Power of Makeup – Trish McEvoy
It was a pretty book and makeup is my second place obsession. Seriously, I have a spending problem whenever I walk into a MAC store.

Here there’s a Goodwill that’s only books. It’s AMAZING and you can find some really great older books there along with some newer ones. Plus, it’s always changing and there are always new books there.

Deja Dead – Kathy Reichs
I got this one out from the library a while ago and never got around to reading it though I really wanted to. Now I don’t have an excuse!

Then it was on to Chapters where I splurged in honour of my first paycheque from my new job and got;

Wanted – Sara Shepard
It is any wonder that I got it since it just came out? I can’t wait to read it.
Birthmarked – Caragh M. O’Brien
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book.

Dust of 100 Dogs – A.S. King
I stumbled across this one and it sounds like it’s going to be a great pirate read. Plus, it seems like it’s a very original book.
Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea – Chelsea Handler
I enjoyed Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang so much that I had to get this one. Technically I got it at Coles in the mall, but it’s only because no one could find the book in Chapters when there were 8 copies available. Weird…
Whip It – Shauna Cross
I loved the movie and the book sounds like fun. Stay tune for a review asap!

So this is what I got in my mailbox this week. What’s in yours?

Some great books here that's for sure. I'm dying to read Birthmarked and Wanted looks really great too. Also love the cover for Something Borrowed - looks like something that's right up my alley. Enjoy your books!
