In My Mailbox (46)

IMM is hosted by the wonderful Kristi at The Story Siren. Surely you know that by now :)

This is the last two weeks in books. I've been pretty slow when it comes to books, but honestly? I have so many to read that I'm okay with it. Plus, reading time has been interrupted by the time spent introducing my husband to the Harry Potter movies. He hasn't read the books, but we are halfway through The Order of the Phoenix and he can't wait for more. YAY!

Speaking of Harry Potter, I finally finished the audiobooks. MY ENTIRE SOUL IS EMPTY.

Despite not many books lately, I did score some awesomeness at Half Price Books though, as you'll see below!



For Review
Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown (thanks Random House & NetGalley!)

Gifted
The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers by Lynn Weingarten (thanks, Dad!)

From Half Price Books
Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdoch
The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle
The Fault in Our Stars (SIGNED!) by John Green






I've never read a JG book before (SHAME!) but I do think I'll make this one my first.

  5. Hahaha I saw the photo you posted on your twitter of The Fault in Our Stars (gosh, why do I feel like a stalker now?) and I also haven't read anything from John Green. I also want to read Lies Beneath as soon as possible, it looks very good!
    Enjoy reading :)

  14. TFiOS was my first John Green book too and I was completely blown away by it! I've seriously been *almost* buying Dairy Queen for what seems like forever so I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Hope you're having an awesome weekend! :)

  15. I still haven't read TFiOS, but I loved Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines, so I am really looking forward to reading it:

  21. Heck yes to the Fault in Our Stars. I haven't read it yet, but it's glaring at me from my bookshelf. I can't wait to start it. Hope you love your books! I haven't read the Beginning of After, but I'm pretty darn intrigued. :)

  22. I haven't read TFIOS yet either; hope to soon! You should also check out Paper Towns, my favorite of his that I've read. Fantastic stuff.

  23. And I thought I was the only YA fan left who had yet to read a John Green! I've meant to for a long time. In fact, I've checked both Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines from the library at different times; I've just never gotten around to it. The Fault in Our Stars sounds amazing, and I've heard such good things about it. It may wind up being my first as well.

  24. Wait.. you found The Fault in Our Stars at Half Priced Books?! Woah, score!!! That's awesome. You will be happy to know I am continuing my journey with Harry Potter this month :) I know.. I'm slow, ha! So many books! So little time!

  25. Who in the world would sell their signed The Fault in our Stars?! Crazy people. Oh well, cause it worked out that you found it :)
    It was my first John Green book too and it is ah-maze-ing. Hope you love it too :)
    Happy Reading!
