In My Mailbox (36)

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


Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar

I've heard so many bloggers raving about this one, I had to see what the fuss is all about. It's an Aussie book not available in North America at the moment. The prices seem to constantly change on, but I checked one time and it had gone down to a decent amount, so I purchased it quickly!

Bought the following as library discards:

Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Fire by Kristin Cashore
Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James (I've already read this one, but was not about to turn down the deal of getting a hardcover copy of my own for $1)
Wounded by Eric Walters

From the library:

Where I Want to Be by Adele Griffin
The Game by Teresa Toten

I just wanted to add: Psychtember is in full swing now, so some of my regular features (for instance, Kiss, Marry, Kill) won't be appearing this month. But you can look forward to them making a return in October, and in the meantime, enjoy Psychtember!


  1. Library sales are the best! So are just libraries in general. I haven't heard about Raw Blue yet, but it looks good - I'll have to check it out.

  2. I really want to read Raw Blue! One, being aussie and two, it sounds great. Hope it doesn't disappoint. Oh and Fire! I read and absolutely loved Graceling, I really need to grab this one soon. Awesome books, enjoy! :)

  3. Beautiful Malice sounds amazing. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. I've read Graceling, but I still haven't read Fire... I hope you enjoy the books you got this week! :)

  5. I've heard great things about Raw Blue too, hope you enjoy it! I really want to read Fire as well, and Beautiful Malice is supposed to be really good too. Happy reading! :)

  6. I think I need to read Graceling again. The first time I didn't finish it but I know a lot of people like the books so maybe I wasn't in readjng mood or something lol
    Enjoy your books :)

  7. I've been intrigued by Beautiful Malice for a while now, but I haven't read it yet. I'll be really interested to see what you think. I also SERIOUSLY need to read Fire! Gah!

  8. Great books! I've heard a lot about Raw Blue, too, so I'll look forward to your thoughts on it. :)

  9. Great books this week! I have only heard good things about Raw Blue! I hope you enjoy

  10. I'm a new follower. :) Raw Blue sounds really amazing; I haven't heard of it before. I'm not sure what happened to the narrator, but I guess. I think it will be a really powerful read. Have a great week! And write lots of reviews. :D

  11. I have been looking for a copy of Raw Blue for ages, thanks for the link!! I was lent a copy of Beautiful Malice from my friend this week and I'm looking forward to it!!

  12. Palace of Mirrors looks good! I'll be keeping an eye out for your review on that one. I still need to read Graceling. :) Hope you like Where I Want to Be!

  13. I have Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix (autographed!!) and Fire by Kristin Cashore (though GRACELING is still my favorite to-date)

    I just noticed that you have COURT DUEL listed as a favorite in a widget. Steph Su Reads recced it to me. I got the 2 books from the library once, but had to return them unread. I recently found the two books together in one at the used bookstore and SNAGGED it!!

  14. Don't you love it when you find great books at great prices?


I love comments, so post away!
