In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme is about books that you received or bought during the week. You can join this week’s meme by going to this post.
These are the books that I got this week, which I bought from different bookstores.
From Fully Booked:
Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud
On the Edge by Ilona Andrews
Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier
I’m interested in Heroes of the Valley because I loved the Bartimaeus Trilogy by the same author. I love the cover of the edition that I got. I have the same reason for getting On the Edge, I loved the Kate Daniels books by the same author. I finished reading the first three books in the Sevenwaters series and I’m currently reading Heir to Sevenwaters. Juliet Marillier is another newly-discovered favorite author.
Powerbooks is on sale for a whole month so I got a bunch of books from them this week:
Looking for Alaska by John Green (only P37!)
Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs
Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs
Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs
Can’t wait to read the Mercy Thompson books! I’m pretty new to the urban fantasy genre. I decided to read more books in that genre since I loved the Kate Daniels books (sorry if I keep mentioning them) and several book blogger friends recommended the books by Patricia Briggs. I’ve already read some of her epic fantasy books and I thought they were great so I’m looking forward to these.
I finally got my Better World Books order:
Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley
The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
My first order never arrived but they gave a refund so I decided to give them a try again. So far, Better World Books has the most reasonable shipping rates to the Philippines. Both of these are ex-library books. I’m a huge McKinley fan and I haven’t read Outlaws of Sherwood because it’s not available here so I’m glad I finally got a copy. I’ve heard that The Changeover is an awesome supernatural love story so I’m excited to read that one as well.
That’s it for me, how about you, what’s in your mailbox? 🙂
