In My Mailbox (12)

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

It's been a while since I've done an IMM post, so here's what I've gotten over the past couple weeks.


Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs, won from Boys, Books, Buzz - thanks!

From the library:

The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey
Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles

Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
The Family Fortune by Laurie Horowitz


My mom bought this reading journal for me —it's divided into sections like "Favorite Authors," "Reading Record," "Book Passages of Note," etc. and that curlicue design on the front is made of awesome velvety felt-like material!

What did you get in your mailbox?


  1. Great mailbox Danya! Congrats on winning Forgive My Fins! Guardian of the Dead was an ... interesting... read. Not really how I expected it to be if my memory serves me right...

    Happy Reading!! :)

  2. I haven't read Sarah Rees Brennan's series yet but I've heard good things about it. Hope you like it too!

    Oh, and that journal looks gorgeous.

  3. I enjoyed Jumping off swings and hope you do too.
    Happy reading and have a great week!

  4. Hope you love Forgive My Fins. I thought it was super cute.

  5. I am really perplexed when I hear about new books each and every day. But my chances to get new books and new authors are very rare. So could you please help me finding the link where I can download ebooks ( of course those books you mention in your blogs)

  6. I love your reading journal. Yay for Forgive My Fins!! Congrats on your win :) I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Guardian of the Dead. I'm not sure what to make of that one (I haven't read it yet).

    I want to write your library a strongly worded letter imploring them to please, please put those barcodes on the BACK cover.

  7. Forgive My Fins looks really good and I love the cover too- mermaid books are fab1 I hope you enjoy your new books, Danya :D

  8. Forgive my Fins is such a fun read so hope you enjoy it.

  9. Forgive My Fins has such a pretty cover! Enjoy :)

  10. Oh Forgive My Fins! I've heard that's a really cute story:) Looking forward to seeing what you think of it Danya!

  11. Jumping off Swings sounds like the type of book, I'd really like, but this is the first time I've heard of it. Hope you like it!

    The reading journal is a cute idea. :)

  12. Got an award waiting for you! http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/01/first-award-of-2011-im-stylin.html

  13. That journal is gorgeous and Forget My Fins looks super cute!

  14. Your journal is quite good, I read your thought from them, I love them especially Jasper Fforde, I hope the library can use barcode in jasper!
