In My Mailbox (65)

Well, I failed again this week at my book ban. I blame my insane ability to set aside that voice in the back of my head that tells me I’m running out of shelf space. I also was able to meet up with the amazing NotNessie from Today’s Adventure and have a book swap. Turns out she’s a local blogger and is beyond nice. Seriously, I cried a little inside from all she gave to me (tears of absolute joy, of course).
So, without further ado, here is my IMM for this week. Oh, and I apologize if the photo quality isn’t all that spectacular – I’m still working out the kinks for posting photos this way! 

From NotNessie

At Grave’s End, One Foot in the Grave, Halfway to the Grave, Destined for an Early Grave all by Jeaniene Frost. I’ve been warned it’s very adult, so I’m thoroughly excited to read them! Has anyone out there read them already? What did you think?

The Last Olympian, The Battle of the Labyrinth, The Titans Curse, The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters by Rick RiordanThree of these I was so not happy with. “hardcover” does not mean paperbound hardcover to me. So I’m going to give them to my cousin or someone as a present.

Well, that’s it for me this week. I picked up a few more books but they’re for gifts more than anything. Leave me a line and let me know what you got this week!

As always, IMM credit deserves to go wholly to The Story Siren. Check out her amazing site!

Man, you have some crazy good luck with used book shopping! Whenever I go I rarely find anything that good... maybe I should check out Value Village.

WOW! You have had a really good week this week! I have read the Night Huntress series and I can tell you that it is AWESOME! It definitely isn't a YA book but I wouldn't say it is particularly explicit either, but then I am a complete smut queen so my view may be slightly skewed!

New followere here!

Great haul! I don't have much hope for my book ban either, but I'll have to try my best. You made some awesome purchases - especially with Vampire Academy!

Holy moly. Lots on here I want to read/get at some point. And I covet the arc cover of Wolfsbane, too. Don't think I'll get a finished copy, actually, because I want that cover.

What??? You have a book ban but got so many books. Wow, I thought I was bad. :o I didn't get anything new this week, but that's okay considering I already have a huge, huge number of books in my To Be Read pile. Got to get caught up somehow!

Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous) said...

You got a nice set of books. I really want to read Bumped.
Happy Reading,

Did you have to get a forklift to get all of the books out of your mailbox and into your house ;)
Looks like you are going to enjoy reading all of them.
Following you on GFC.
