In My Mailbox (63)

Well, I’m officially back from vacation and what a vacation it was! Swimming, campfires, s’mores, shopping, family, friends, and books, books, books! Which means that I really broke my book ban – which starts up right away – and I have a huge pile to share with you all.
For starters, let’s do this chronologically.

From a day of used book-salvation army-value village scouring, I got;


Roswell High – The Outsider by Melinda MetzParadise Lost by Kate Brian
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Steamed by Katie MacAlister


Ambition by Kate Brian
Revelation by Kate Brian
Suspicion by Kate Brian

Scandal by Kate Brian
Vanished by Kate Brian

Now I think I have just about the entire Private series. I blieve I'm missing one of the last books, but that's all. I can't wait to fully dive now into it!

Teacher’s Pet by Francine Pascal
Tug of War by Francine Pascal
Standing Out by Francine Pascal
The Charm School Mystery by Francine Pascal
The Christmas Ghost by Francine Pascal
The Curse of the Ruby Necklace by Francine Pascal
In Love with Mandy by Francine Pascal

From the antique show that was in town where I was spending time with my family;



Cheaper By the Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Carey
This one was published in 1948 (which means that it might just be a first edition!) and still has its original dust cover! To top it all off, it was only $4!!!

From my day of shopping in Michigan;


Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen


Twisted by Sara Shepard
Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepard
The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay Sands


Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs - idiot me ordered it from the Book Depository as well this week and then forgot! I'm hoping to find someone who wants to swap some books or else I'll just donate it to my local library.


Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus
Wildefire by Karsten Knight

From my day out with my friend Amy and spending time at other used book stores I got;



Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty
Charmed Thirds by Megan McCafferty
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde


The Night is for Hunting by John Marsden (!!!!! Now my Tomorrow series is complete!!!)
The Realm of the Gods by Tamora Pierce
Lady Knight by Tamora Pierce


The New Girl by Francine Pascal
Jumping to Conclusions by Francine Pascal

The Season of Risks by Susan Hubbard

Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
Heidi by Johanna Spyri
The Little Lame Prince by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
Peter the Cub by Margaret Beech

Then when I got home I was greeted with a package from the amazing Sara from over at Just Another Story. She was sweet enough to send me her extra ARCs! I'm considering this a RAK since it was a most random act of kindness. THANK YOU SARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Fury by Elizabeth Miles
Witchlanders by Lena Coakley



So this is what I got this week! Starting Monday I'm officially back on a book ban... unless something comes along that I just cannot resist. Hahahha.

Leave me a line and let me know what you got in your mailbox this week!



As always, IMM credit is due to Kristi over at The Story Siren. Any and all info can be found there!



These ones were all in gorgeous leather bindings and I just couldn’t pass them up. Plus, one of the used book stores had a sale on antique books and they were only a dollar!
