In My Mailbox Sunday #4

"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 (before), whether you purchased them, they were gifted to you, borrowed, etc.

Oh boy!!! I have such a huuuuge list this week!!! and here it is :)

*RAK'd to me :) ... from Crystal of What R U Reading

Squeee!!! I cannot wait to get started on this series!
Thank you so much, Crystal!!!

- BeSwitched and BeSwitched Witch by Molly Snow
Oh my, I have been wanting to read these since the minute I found them! and now I can :)
A huge thank you to Molly Snow too, for sending them to me!!!

*From my sweet Hubs :) He bought me the first two books of the Hush Hush series when they came out! and he just spotted the 3rd one while shopping the other day! hee hee!!! Yay me! 
- Silence (Hush Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick 

*I bought: 
- Fallen in Love (Fallen #3.5) by Lauren Kate 
{swoon} Aren't the covers to the Fallen series divine?!
I am so ready to 'fall' into this series again!!!

- War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
I've heard great things about the War Horse! 
Small book, quick read :)  I like that! 

*For Review!!!

*For Free!!! 
On my Nook:
- Lovely by Allison Liddelle 
- The Strange Case of Finley Jayne (The Steampunk Chronicles) by Kady Cross 

... and on my Kindle Cloud Reader: 
- The Mind Reader's by Lori Brighton 
- Fateful by Cheri Schmidt 

It was truly a fantastic week for me!
I finally also got a pink case for my Nook! Now I will be able to bring it everywhere with me without having to worry about it getting scratched up!!!

lol, kiddos wanted to put their new books in the pic too :)
5yo bought UP, but then realized that it was a chapter book and it is a bit too long for him to sit through, lol! 8yo is in the process of collecting all of the Magic Treehouse Books! I loooove that he looooves to read too!!!
We are going to try to refrain from buying books for a while now! We have more than enough to keep us busy for a few weeks! and I vow to spend more time reading rather than looking for freebies too, lol!
I've got plenty to read now and must get started :) Woo hoo!!!

What did you get last week??? 


  1. I read City of Bones so long ago.. can't remember it anymore.. might have to pick it up again! :)

    LOVE the cover of Fallen in Love... so pretty!!

  16. I love Finley Jayne and it's a great beginning to a fantastic steampunk series. Plus, she's just a kick-ass character.

    Amazing books this week and happy reading!!

  17. YAY for City of Bones. I'm hoping you enjoy it, because TMI is just such an awesome series. While you're at it, you should definitely try Clare's Infernal Devices series. Both series are EXCELLENT.

    Hubby is so sweet! That's so cute of him to have you all of the Hush Hush series. Silence's cover is really starting to grow on me *lol*

    Fallen in Love somehow looks prettier than the rest in the series. Isn't that weird? Still an exciting addition to the series! Also, I too have to read the prequel book to The Steampunk Chronicles. I'd love to know more about Finley!

    Have an amazing reading week!

  18. What a great haul! City of Bones is AMAZING. I wish I could go back and experience it for the first time! I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading!

  19. You have a great hubby! I have yet to read Silence, but I read and loved the rest of the Hush Hush series, so I need to get on that!

    Enjoy your reading :)

  20. Okay, to be honest, I love City of Bones. There are so many people that have bad things to say about the series, and I admit that I barely managed to get through City of Ashes, but City of Bones is like my guilty pleasure. I reread it whenever I feel like it x)
