In My Mailbox (34)

IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, who is even more awesome in person than she is on her blog, if you can believe it :)

GUYS. I joined Amazon Prime. And because I'm a student, I get 6 months of Amazon Prime FREE. And also, once I do get charged, I'll only have to pay $39 instead of $79. GOING TO SCHOOL ROCKS. Except that it actually sucks because it makes me want to pull out my hair. I took my first test this week. I'm pretty bummed about it because as much as I studied, I should've done better. But I guess that's what happens.

Anyway, due to the stress of the first couple weeks of school, I decided to treat myself. A LOT. Plus I got a surprise book in the mail, which NEVER HAPPENS, so that brightened my life, too.

I bought the majority of these books through Amazon, because seriously. Have you seen their hardcover prices?! Unreal. A couple I picked up from Borders, because they went down to 40% off and I had an extra 15% off coupon. How can I say no? I'm weak, my dear readers.

Let us get to the goods, yes?

  15. IMM is killing me, even though you've got a great set of books here! I'm on book buying ban until I can get my physical TBR list down to 20 or January 2012, whichever comes first.

  19. That is one very pretty stack of books! I'm jealous about the free Amazon Prime--I'd love to join, but not for $79. I also am jealous about Shatter Me because that book sounds great!

    ReplyDelete
  20. WOW, every one of your ARCS sound amazing... And Texas Gothic looks GOOD! :)

    Don't worry about the test, things will improve.

    Ahh, students... so much money for books! lol.

    Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  21. So SO So many awesome books!!! I am curious to hear if Texas Gothic is any good, cause I almost got it on Random Buzzers but opted for Spinx's Princess instead.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great books! They all sound really good, Perfect Chemistry seems really popular this week as well, I think it is a sign that I should finally start reading it!

  23. If you have studied enough to know to feel guilty for not doing as well as expected- you're actually on the right track. Remember, nursing school isn't like ANY other program. It's designed to be a mental and emotional beat down and it's run like a boot camp. They want you to know how awful it feels to mess up because just think about what it is you'll be doing in the future.

    Hang in there! I promise that when you get out you'll never have to write a care plan again!

    Hope you lurve Wither! And I covet your copy of Shatter Me. Enjoy!

  24. Good for you! I am glad you treated yourself to such awesome books! I need to sign up for this Amazon Prime thing like right now! I love all the prices on books but the shipping costs are killing me. Also, don't worry about the one test. You'll do better next time :)

  31. I had started Bad Taste in Boys, but decided to put it on the back burner for now. Just didn't keep my interest.

    I REALLY need to read Wither, though. Heard really good things about that one.

    Hope you enjoy Shatter Me! :D

  32. I let myself go to the Borders closing sale, too! I held out and held out and then came home with $52 dollars worth of books. Totally could have been worse. Your haul was better than mine, though. You got some excellent stuff. Enjoy!
