In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a way to share the books I’ve gotten during the week and to receive comments from fellow readers… Who knows, maybe one of my books will be your next read!
I’m always looking for more books, so please leave your IMM link in your comment!
Whoa! I had such an incredible book buying week with Borders in it’s final days- up to 90% off! I ended up going to two locations to see what I could find and I’m really happy with what I came out with!
The Orphan Sister by Gwendolen Gross — Probably the more dramatic and serious of most the books I own! But for $3 I’m willing to give it a shot and I figured if it doesn’t work out for me, my sister would probably enjoy it since it’s more suited for her.
Next to Love
by Ellen Feldman — First book on the almost bare shelves that I grabbed! Initially I didn’t have much of an interest for it, but I like period pieces and I’ve heard good things about it.
by Allie Larkin — I’m a sucker for dog related books!
Swim Back to Me
by Ann Packer — I held back on getting this the first time I went to Borders, but on the second day it was 90% off and I really enjoy short stories.
by Lauren Oliver — I heard so many good things about this! Can’t wait to start it!
A Vintage Affair
by Isabel Wolff — Another book I initially held back on since I hadn’t read any reviews on it, but it’s a Random House Reader’s Choice and the concept of vintage clothing reminded me of The Secret Lives of Dresses
which I really enjoyed (my review
by Lauren DeStefano –I’ve seen this on a lot on other IMM’s and had to check it out! LOVE the cover too!
The Traitor’s Emblem
by Juan Gomez-Jurado — So many great reviews for this! I can’t remember the last time I read a mystery/thriller, but I’m excited and really happy I found it (last one on the shelf too!)
by Jillian Larkin — YA set in the 1920s? Sure!
