In My Mailbox: June 26, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is a great way for bloggers to socialize and network their blogs and to share upcoming releases! To join in all the fun, simply:
  1. Make your own IMM post! You can post about books you've bought, gotten from the library, received for review... books don't have to arrive via your mailbox.
  2. You can post weekly, every other week, or one week out of the month, it’s up to you and it doesn't have to be on Sunday.
  3. Once you have your IMM posted, go to The Story Siren on her Sunday post and add your link to the list.
  4. Comment on other bloggers IMM posts.

This week was really slow for me as far as buying books. I'm trying to get caught up on my TBR list, so for a couple of weeks I'm going to only buy things that I can get at a good price.

Here's what I came up with this week:

Legacy by Cayla Kluver - Yes, you are seeing that correctly. It is not an ARC, I bought it right off the shelf. Someone got their release dates mixed up.....Their error, my gain!!

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz - I'd seen different release dates for this one, Ms. Shultz had mentioned June 28th to Marla as the official date, but stores and online sites show either June 21st and June 28th. Either way I lucked up with both of these books!

Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough - I found it on Amazon for a discounted price and snatched it up. I've received mixed reviews from bloggers and friends on this one. It'll be interesting to see how well it goes for me.

Books borrowed from a friend:

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (ARC)
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Yes, I have a really, really good friend! (Thank you coffee and cupcake buddy, Marla) I can't express how excited I am to get to read both of these. One ending and the other beginning a series for me.

Keep an eye out, the next couple of weeks are going to have some great reviews going up!

Hopefully, I will have more to report next week. Today I am going to my favorite used book store to dig around to see what I can find. McKay's typically does not let me down, but since I'm going on a weekend day I am afraid it might. I always seem to have better luck catching the books I want on a week day. Wish my luck and I can't wait to share my new acquisitions with you soon!

Happy reading, y'all!

Hope you enjoy Forever! I still need to read Linger.

I enjoyed Spellbound a lot, I bet you will too - nice that you found them early :)

Great IMM! I can't wait to read Forever. Linger was sooo good.

FOREVER!! You're such a lucky duck!

Marla said...

Hey, coffee and cupcake buddy. I hope you like the reads. I've got another good one for you next time we hang out. Have fun at McKay! Do some extra browsing for me. ;)

I have Once A Witch sitting in my big TBR pile. And I nabbed Spellbound from NetGalley (which probably means I should get reading it soon.) LOL

Enjoy your books.

Alison said...

Great set! I loved Once A Witch and its sequel Always a Witch. I can't wait to read Forever and Starcrossed.

You have awesome luck my dear! I cannot believe they put that book out before the release. Did you tell them that it isn't supposed to be out yet or are they still selling it? HaHa Either way, Kudos! Also, AWESOME friend for letting you borrow (in my opinion) one of the highly anticipated books of summer. I am currently reading Spellbound and so far I really like it. It is taking me a while to finish since I don't have an eReader, so I have to read it from my computer which gets uncomfortable after a while. I am your newest follower. I couldn't find the google follow so I just put you on my blogroll on my page :o) Happy reading.
