In My Mailbox (8)

In this meme, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, we share the books we've received, bought or taken out from the library.

Despite the fact there was nothing in my physical mailbox, I had a pretty great haul this week thanks to my awesome libraries!

Bought as library discards (including the prices because they were such steals!):

Demon in My View by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (25 cents)

Anne of the Island by L.M.M. Montgomery (20 cents) - I have the first two of the Anne books but the third is my favorite and I didn't have my own copy till now!

Midwinter Nightingale by Joan Aiken  (20 cents) - never heard of this one before but apparently it's part of a series called the Wolves Chronicles.

Julie's Secret by Cora Taylor (25 cents) - I read Julie a few times when I was younger (did anyone else?) but I had no idea there was a sequel until I stumbled upon it on the sale shelf!

Rumors by Anna Godbersen ($1) - A hardcover for $1? Especially one in a really well-known series? Oh yeah. (Even though  it turned out half a page was ripped out...apart from that it's in good shape though.)

Attica by Garry Kilworth (20 cents) - hadn't heard of this one before either but it looks kind of spooky...

Early to Death, Early to Rise by Kim Harrington ($1) - this is the 2nd in the series, I haven't read the first yet.


Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn (Adult)

Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon

A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler

Compromised by Heidi Ayarbe

Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison (I figured, since I was buying the 2nd in the series, I might as well see if they had the 1st, and lo and behold, there it was.)

The Beautiful Between by Alyssa Sheinmel

So that was my week! What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. You've got a lot of fabulous books this week! I can't belive the library were selling The Luxe for so little. Have you read the first book in the series yet?
    Julia's Secret looks interesting, I'll have to find out more about it.
    I don't have copies of all the Anne series either!

    I learned about Florence Nightingale and the Crimea in primary school. I love all of Susanne Dunlaps covers, they're all so beautiful.

    Happy reading this week! :)

  2. wow, great finds! Enoy Demon in My View, that's a nostalgic favorite :)

  3. Dude that is SO awesome!! I loved the Anne of Green Gables series =)

  4. Anne of the Island might be my fav too. I'm looking forward to reading more Luxe books like Rumor.
    My IMM

  5. Wow! You got lots of books. I can't believe you can buy books for 25 cents or $1. Here even 2nd hand copies around $4.50.

    Can't wait to hear what you think of A Blue So Dark. Happy reading :)

  6. Great haul! Especially the library discards.

    I wish I was almost done! In Holland things are different from the US, we have 6 years of Med school, of which 3 years are spent as an intern. I have about 15 months left of that and then it depends on the specialty you want to do how long it takes to (finally) be done.


I love comments, so post away!
