In My Mailbox

An awesome meme started at The Story Siren!

          So I have finally decided to start doing an In My Mailbox post! Since I don't actually receive ARC's (yet, I hope) and I have a pledge not to buy anymore new books until I've read the ones I have, I don't really have a need to do this feature every week. But since I still do accumulate some books, one way or another, I've decided to do a post every now and then. So this one takes into account the month of August. Enjoy!

Even though I am still not supposed to buy ANY books, I still managed to squeeze a few in. I did my best, ok?!

♥ Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz 
          I just really needed to buy a book (withdrawal, people!) and I love this author.

♥ The Last Summer (Of You & Me) by Ann Brashares 
          I have already read this book, loved it, and love the author. And it was $1. As if I could pass it up.


This month was a pretty good one as far as borrowing books from the library. I found lots of books that I've been dying to read:

♥ Other Words For Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
♥ Dead Rules by Randy Russell
♥ Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
♥ The Killer's Cousin by Nancy Werlin
♥ Cloaked by Alex Finn
♥ Insatiable by Meg Cabot
♥ Room by Emma Donoghue


I have had so many nice people lending me books this month, I just hope I can read the books and return them to their owners promptly:

♥ Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen
♥ Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
♥ Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
♥ The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
♥ Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

Not pictured above (already read, reviewed, returned):

♥ The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
♥ Ordinary People by Judith Guest
♥ A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess


I finally won a giveaway, which is super exciting! The book is:

♥ Haunted Heart by Tania Donald

And it is signed by the awesome Australian author. Thanks so much to Alpha Reader for having the amazing giveaway and shipping it to lonely Me, all the way up in Canada!


So this is my very first audiobook! I really badly want to read this book, so when I saw the audiobook, I grabbed it. Since I have so many other hobbies, I decided that it would be a good idea for me to possibly multitask and listen to a book while, let's say, quilting. I will let you know how it goes, and comment below with how and why you listen to your audiobooks!

♥ Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

Well, that concludes my very first In My Mailbox post, and hopefully there will be more to come!

What books have you gone through this month?--Cheers & Enjoy♥
