In My Mailbox (74)

So this is really a week and a bit worth of books since I bought a few while in Toronto last weekend. In short, I didn’t stick to my book ban. Honestly guys, I think that this is almost a lost cause. However, it has been a couple of weeks since I ordered something for myself off of The Book Depository! And some of the purchases this week were ones that the universe made me buy.

From the amazing Ontario Blogger Meet-up last Saturday I got;
A Midsummer’s Nightmare ARC by Kody Keplinger
I read this one this past week and I loved it!
First Day on Earth by Cecil Castellucci
I hope this is a great alien novel!
Under the Never Sky ARC by Veronica Rossi
SO EXCITED! But I need to hold off on reading it until closer to the release date so that I don’t accidentally give away any spoilers.
Fever ARC by Lauren DeStefano
I still have to read Wither!!
I received another novel as well, but I first traded it and then gave the traded novel to my friend since she was interested in it.

Violet on the Runway by Melissa Walker
Violet by Design by Melissa Walker
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
These three I just had to rescue from the bargain teen books at the Chapters in Oshawa.

Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter
Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy by Ally Carter
I’d Tell You I Love You, But then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
Hooked by Catherine Grenman
Flawless by Sara Shepard
I got these ones at the BMV close to the Eaton’s Center. This was such an amazing store! Hooked was brand new and I got the hardcover copy of Flawless!

From Indigo in the Eaton’s Center
In the Belly of the Bloodhound by L.A. Meyer
Under the Jolly Roger by L.A. Meyer
Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
Now I just need the Blue Tattoo and I’ll have them all in the paperback pretty black spine covers!

Then there was a charity book sale at one of the local elementary schools, plus it was on my birthday, so the universe told me that I needed to go and buy books!
Deadly Decisions by Kathy Reichs
Fatal Voyage by Kathy Reichs
Death du Jour by Kathy Reichs
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
I’ve never read this one but I loved the movie from, like, 10 years ago!
The Nannies by Melody Mayer
Another Cup of Sugar by Anna Olson
Yay dessert cookbook!!

Then (since it was my birthday) I went to a used book store in the next town over and got;
The Slippery Slope by Lemony Snicket
Now I have the entire series in hardcover!! :D Muahhahahahah!
Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
I want to get all the Vampire Academy novels before I start reading the series.

Then I got a bunch of e-books this week from NetGalley but the most important one was Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout!!! I just finished reading it and I loved it! I can’t wait to buy my own copy as soon as it comes out. In fact, I might just go break my TBD streak and pre-order my copy...

So I was super lazy and fighting with my internet, hence the lack of photos. I don’t know why but internet has especially sucked this past week – more than normal. I also found out that it won’t even load klout! I’m just happy that blogger is cooperating most of the time and Twitter is accessible through my smart phone.
This is all for me this week. Leave me a message and let me know what you got in your mailbox this week! And for more IMM fun, visit the source of this amazing meme and go check out The Story Siren’s website!

SO many books. I was in the bookstore yesterday and couldn't get my hands on Hooked. Not a single Chapters/Indigo in my city has it. And here you find it at a used book store, what up with that?

Enjoy your books!

I just finished Never Sky a couple of days ago! :) It was pretty good but a bit confusing and a lot more sci-fi than I expected.
