In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!

I got a ton of new books this week but I'm going to divide it so I can post something for next week (which won't be completely lying... not that any of you would had been able to tell the difference if I didn't say anything. Sometimes I really hate being so honest over the smallest things). 

So this week I received my package from (the review for them can be found here) I was excited to get it because I was curious about the condition of the books and well... I'm impressed!

  • Happens Every Day (hardcover) by Isabel Gillies (got for $1.99)
  • Warrior Princess by Frewin Jones
  • Tithe by Holly Black
  • The Seven Rays (hardcover) by Jessica Bendinger 
  • Eyes Like Stars (hardcover) by Lisa Mantchev (got for $3)
  • The Clearing by Heather Davis (got for $3)
Sorry about the location, I was in my car waiting for class to start when I took these pictures. The condition of the books are brand new. Nothing wrong with them, at all! I highly suggest their site if you're interested in discounted books! They usually have a few new releases as well.

A fellow blogger mentioned Half Priced Books to me and so I did a search and found stores across the country. One being in the city my school is in so of course... I had to check it out! It was huge and they had all sorts of books, CD's and DVD's! Their YA section wasn't all that big but they had a nice selection of books and again, a ton looked brand new (plus with some, they had a bunch of brand new looking copies).

  • Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan
  • A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
I only managed to pick up two books, but these were $4.99 each. I got both for a little over $9! How cool is that?! I'm excited, yay =).

If you'd prefer to see the vlog verison, that can be found here.
