In My Mailbox (19)

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

This week was a good one for my mailbox! In anticipation of the "A Cornucopia of Dystopia" event I am co-hosting with Casey from The Bookish Type, I received:

Wither by Lauren DeStefano (thanks Simon & Schuster!)
Enclave by Ann Aguirre (thanks Macmillan!)

I also went to my local Chapters bookstore to check for books to put on my birthday wishlist (since my birthday's coming up in about a month). While I was there I found a couple steals in the clearance section that I couldn't resist:

Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout (although, why did they have to put the $2 sticker RIGHT over his head? No idea.)
The Tough Guide to Fantasy Land by Diana Wynne Jones

And last but not least, a few holds came in at the library:

Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King
My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent
Rosebush by Michele Jaffe


  1. I loved My Soul to Steal! I hope you like it :). Enclave looks awesome, so jealous! And Wither. Happy reading!

  2. Looks like you got in some good reads, esp. those first two. Hope you enjoy! Mine is here:

  3. I can't wait to hear what you thought of Wither and Enclave! Oh, and I cannot wait for The Cornucopia of Dystopian event! Great mailbox!

  4. Lol, the $2 sticker over the guy's head is annoying me and I don't even have the book present in front of me :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Enclave since I love the trailer for it.

  5. This reminds me that I havent been to Chapters in a couple weeks and will probably go this week to see if they have any new deals. I just read Wither last week and loved it so can't wait to see what you thought of it.

  6. I Haven't read any of these. Sounds like you have a fun local store.

  7. Nice, I really loved 'Wither'... I'm definitely going to buy a copy at some point.

    Haha oh Chapters... I've seen them put those $2 stickers in strange spots here, as well, on a few books. So strange, lol.

  8. You're really lucky to get such good bargains in Chapters- book sale prices never go near that low in England! Rosebush sounnds good and the cover's pretty. Enjoy :)

  9. I really enjoyed Wither and My Soul to Steal! Looks like you had a great week book-wise :) Happy reading!

  10. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on "Wither" and "Please Ignore Vera Dietz". I enjoyed "Wither", however, have some issues with the book. It seems to be getting mixed reviews from the blogosphere.

  11. Aw's a small reading world after all! WITHER is next in my TBR. ^_^ Great mailbox! I'm with you on the price stickers's hoping you either don't mind the placement or it comes off easy. Happy reading!

  12. I want to read Wither sooo but my budget is pretty tight right now.

    And I absolutely LOVED Rosebush!

  13. Oh Rosebush! I loved that book! I reviewed it a few weeks ago. I am feeling too lazy to paste the link here though. Let me know what you think about it!

  14. Oh I'll be curious about a bunch of your reviews for these. I've seen Girl V. Boy around, but I don't have a clear idea of how good it is. I so can't wait to read Enclave!


I love comments, so post away!
