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






Bought:

  • Other by Karen Kincy
  • Tweet Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick
  • The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman
  • Butterfly by Sonya Hartnett
  • A Reluctant Cinderella by Alison Bond
  • Pictures of Lily by Paige Toon
  • Rich and Mad by William Nicholson
  • The Missing by Shiloh Walker 
  • The Swan Kingdom by Zoe Marriott
Review:
  • Other by Karen Kincy
  • Lady of Hay by Barbara Erskine


I requested Other and ended up picking it up thinking I wasn't going to get the request since the reply was taking awhile and the day after I purchased it, I got an email. Isn't it funny when things like that happen? Either way, I'm really excited to read it! I'm currently reading The Swan Kingdom and it isn't as exciting as I thought it would be, but I'm curious to know how it ends. 

I was thinking of doing movie reviews since I've been watching a bunch of movies lately (my husband hates reading but he loves watching movies, I'm the opposite). Off subject, but it seems everyone has a headache today... could it be the heat? Nothing is easing my headache, it's driving me nuts!

So what did you get in your mailbox?

  3. Oh and you should definately add movie reviews to your blog if you enjoy writing them. I actually enjoy reading them moreso than book reviews.

  4. Oh, oh, oh! Other looks realllllly good. :D It deserved a few extra L's. Haha. :)

    Most Borders have a bargain bin every once in a while. The one in my town is probably getting rid of a lot of supplies and such, it's been here for a few weeks.
