In My Mailbox (8)

I love Sundays. Of course, they also mean that I have to work from 10-4, but I can deal with that. No, I love Sundays because all around the book blogging world it’s the day of the week where basically everyone shares what they got in their mailbox for the entire previous week. Thus, the eventual birth of In My Mailbox happened over at The Story Siren, a website that everyone should check out, and even though it was inspired by Pop Culture Junkie, it was genius.

This week I was very frugal and only bought books for ridiculously low prices or at stores where they were more than 25% off. Hey, at least I can say that I’m trying to curb my addiction in these trying economical times. So, I got;

Starbucked by Taylor Clark
It’s autographed!
Fighting the Current by Heather Waldorf
Both these books I got at… you’ll never guess. At the freaking DOLLAR store! No lie. I was buying supplies for work (while getting paid, woo!) and I stumbled across these two books so I bought them after I bought all the work stuff. Both look really good and the Starbucked one looks really interesting.

Cum Laude by Cecily von Ziegesar
I’m so happy that I didn’t get this at Chapters because I got a way better deal at Shoppers Drug Mart.
The Daughters by Joanna Philbin
Another one I’m glad that I didn’t get at a different store. Go Wal-Mart for having books at 30% off.
Sisters Red by Jackson Pierce
Another Wal-Mart find at 30% off. I’m really interested to cultivate my own thoughts on this one since it seems as though there are opposing views on it.

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

You got some good deals and some good books. Sisters Red has been showing up so much that I just have to read it. However, I too am trying not to buy so many books. My TBR stack is threatening to take over my house. Happy reading!

I haven't heard much about these books except for Sisters Red. It wasn't for me, but I still love the cover! Hope you enjoy it!
