In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. If you haven't heard of her, you're living under a rock! She is super cool :)

I had a pretty awesome week, I won't lie. I think I'm going to have to put a book buying ban into effect again. No promises on the upholding of that notion. My Half Price Books is magical, I think because I tend to find new releases within mere weeks of their release dates. I'm looking at you, Jane and The Mockingbirds!!

My little sister is in town visiting from college (YAY!) and she helped me rearrange my bookshelf. There's no particular order to it, I just needed something a little less cluttered. She then proceeded to raid my bookcase and pulled out the entire Pretty Little Liars series to take back to IU with her. Naturally, I made her sign a legally binding contract to ensure that the books return to me in their original near-perfect condition. But the point is: she's reading YA. She hardly ever reads. Yay for setting a good example :) She's actually lying on the floor of my office/cat room/book room reading the first one. She refused to let me take a picture...spoilsport.

Onto the books....


The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Jane by April Lindner
Mistwood by Leah Cypress
The Candidates by Inara Scott

Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty


At any rate, a seriously great book week for me.

Thank you to all of my readers and blogger friends who responded to yesterday's Jessie Spano post. You all are right: blogging is supposed to be fun and not stressful. I really haven't been stressed about it so far, but I think starting out posting every single day kind of set a standard for me.

Just wanted to let you know that I seriously heart and appreciate you guys. Thanks so much for reading, even if what I have to say is ridiculous and makes no sense. I have no idea why I have ANY followers at all :)

Also, don't forget to enter to win a signed, finished copy of NEVERMORE by Kelly Creagh. It's my favorite book of 2010 and I highly recommend it. Click HERE to enter!


  1. Mistwood is one I'm curious about, but have only read so-so reviews on. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you think of it. Enjoy all are your books! :D

  2. the mockingbirds is awesome - I love sorting out my library shelves - it soothes me!

  3. Great books this week! I have The Candidates on my bookshelf but haven't gotten to it yet. I've heard lots of good things about The Mockingbirds. My IMM is up on my blog! :)

  4. I just finished Mistwood last night...I almost didn't know what to rate it. I guess it was just okay, but the cover is great! And I really need to write a letter and/or email to Half Price Books and tell them they HAVE to put I store where I live!

  5. This Half-Price Books place sounds DANGEROUS, yo. So many good books though. Also, for the record, I prefer it when you are "ridiculous and make no sense."

  6. Cool books you have this week! I am your newest follower, great blog! I like your quote about the soy chai latte :-)

  7. i just finished reading the mockingbirds. it was fantastic--i hope you enjoy it too. great haul this week :D

    check out our IMM here.

  8. I am envious of your awesome Half-Price Books. Mine never gets new releases. Jane is awesome and I am loving the Jessica Darling Series. :-)

  9. Very jealous of your stack especially Mockingbird :)

  10. It's probably a very good thing that I don't have a Half-Price Books near me or I may be in even bigger trouble than I am now. I have never heard of Mistwood before *not to self to look it up*

  11. Excellent stack! I've been hearing mixed things about The Mockingbirds so I'll be curious to hear how that one is.

  12. Excellent books this week! I can't wait to see what you thought of The Mockingbirds. I felt it was an extremely powerful read :)

  13. I agree with Anna, I like the ridiculous!!!

    Plus OMG you got some AMAZE books this week. I want updates on this Sloppy First thing my lady!

  14. I want to read The Mockingbirds SO BAD!! I can't wait to read your review.
