In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox is hosted and was orchestrated by the ridiculously awesome Kristi at The Story Siren.

So I had a little extra cash lying around, since my job decided to be awesome. Some girls would spend it on clothes or shoes or other crap like that. I don't much care about either of those things, and my hoodie and sweatpants supply is abundant. I could've highlighted my hair, because I desperately need that. But I'm lazy. And Book Closeouts had some insanely awesome books available.

So here's my awesome mailbox, as presented by the feline Bo Schembechler, who loves new book smell just as much as I do.

From Other Bloggers
The Jumbee by Pamela Keyes (Won this in a contest that the lovely ladies had over at Forever Young Adult. YAY PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!)
Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney (Eleni at La Femme Readers, who I heart, sent this to me :)

Bought at Half Price Books
She's So Dead to Us by Kieran Scott

Bought at
Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr (I love this series so much, I had to have the UK covers)
You Are So Undead to Me and Undead Much? by Stacey Jay
The Naughty List by Suzanne Young
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

I'm beyond pumped about all the goods I got this week.

In other news, I've read 90 books this year so far. My goal is 100 by November 30, 2010. I unfortunately don't think I'm going to make it, because this month will be filled with studying for exams, holidays, and preparing for finals. Guys, nursing school sucks the life out of me. I'm not too disappointed, because I only read about 40 last year (SO SAD) and my goal for this year was 60. Even if I can make it to 95, I think I'll feel somewhat accomplished.

Have a great week!


  1. I can't wait to read Wicked Lovely! I looked up the UK covers and I agree that they are awesome.

  2. Some good books Jen! I curious to see what you think of The Naughty List and Bloodthirsty. Happy reading :)

    All the best with nursing school, exams etc. That sounds very hectic, and 90 books in one year is SUCH a huge accomplishment. One of the reasons I started blogging was to make sure I read more :)
