In My Mailbox Sunday #2

"In My Mailbox" is a weekly meme created by The Story Siren -
The idea is to post whatever 'books' you may have received from the week,
whether you purchased them, they were gifted to you, borrowed, etc.

Not much to say today, lol! I have so much reading that I want to do! but I'm tired, kiddos have been sick, I have some commitments that I have in regards to my 'other blog' and I have fallen behind, sigh... and did I mention that I'm tired?! and here it is, midnight (Sunday morning!) and I'm posting about my wonderful new books! and guess what I'll do once I'm done posting???
Grabbing a blanket and reading some more of Halo ;)

Here's what I got last week!!!

My very first review request!!!
- Daphne and The Mysterious Girls Secret Bathroom Society
by Robert Shields

And my first NetGalley!!! 
- Halflings by Heather Burch

What I bought for my Nook:


by Beth Fantaskey 

And, two surprises from my hubs!!! 
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Switched by Amanda Hocking

O.M.G. Don't ya just looove Switched's cover!

I am a huuuge paperback-bookcover geek, lol!
I rarely buy hardcovers, and when I do, if it's a keeper and it's going on my bookshelf -
I usually get rid of the bookcover (eek, I know!)
So I love it when my paperbacks are super pretty and cool to look at so I can add them to my bookshelves too, hee hee!!!

What did you get last week???


  1. Wow, what a prett theme!!

    I got Switched, too, although it was an early copy from a friend. It has a different cover and all that.

    Hope you'll enjoy it!

    And The Book Thief is probably one of the must reads of all must reads. Everyone keeps recommending it and then I sit down and want to start, but someone calls or the postman is there and gives me my copy of [random book] and I still haven't started reading it. Argh!


  2. The Book Thief is one of my all times favourites - it is absolutely AMAZING, I hope you love it as much as I did. :) Switched looks super interesting too, I've heard great things about it. Enjoy your books!
