In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Had a nice mailbox this week, and picked up some real finds at my library book sale as well! I know, I know….I’m weak. Simply can’t resist the lure of the book!
I won The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon from Wendy at Caribousmom because I’m taking part in her Random Reading Challenge! How cool is that? Take part in a really cool challenge and win an ARC to boot!
This is the book I’m most excited about receiving…Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler! *happy dance* Seems like I’ve been waiting forever for this one to come out, and think it may just skip the line and be my next read instead of patiently waiting it’s turn! Love Nicole’s tweets and blog, so excited to finally have her first book in my hot little hands!
This is my first audio book, courtesy of a quick Twitter giveaway by J.Kaye. I’ve read James Patterson before, and hear so many people rave about audio books that I’m looking forward to finally diving into the pool. Alex Cross is a great character, so l can’t wait to listen to Double Cross and see if it lives up to the hype.
The Vampire’s Assistant was from another Twitter contest. This one by Ivy over at Book Reader Times. Looks like a really cool movie, and as I tend to read the book first, am excited to have won this! Sometimes I just happen to be at the right place at the right time. Doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I do my happy dance! *L*
Saw SoulStice by Simon Holt at my library book sale. Read the back and remember reading a review of it on a blog, but can’t remember where. I have started keeping track of whose blog I see books to put on my wishlist, so will give credit in the future. Sorry. It was only a quarter, so snatched it up! Will pick up the first one at the bookstore, but I couldn’t resist grabbing this one.
Picked up The Spy Who Came for Christmas by David Morrell at the same library book sale. Haven’t heard of this one, but I just finished reading Morrell’s latest book, so decided to grab it off the cart as well.
And last but not least, my final buys from the library book sale were Uglies and Pretties by Scott Westerfeld.
I don’t know that I would have picked these up if I hadn’t read such good reviews on various blogs. Again, my apologies for not giving credit where credit is due. I have started keeping track, so hopefully will be able to give credit in the future.
So what did everyone else get this week?
