In My Mailbox (35)

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie! It is a list of the books that I've received over the previous week, either in the mail, from the bookstore, or from trades.


Here's what I got this week:


Bought:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Won:
Beautiful Dead: Arizona by Eden Maguire
(@ Flipping Pages for All Ages)

Other:
17 Again DVD

Went Black Friday shopping got tons of bargains but found very little sales at the bookstores. I did enjoy some hot delicious Starbucks at a discount and only got to buy a book and a DVD. On the bright side, I get to go again tomorrow to finish shopping using my 30% coupons + Discount Card, which I stupidly forgot to take with me. So, I'll more than likely get 2 paperbacks I've been dying for and possibly a box set.

^^^ Now I want to see what you got in your mailbox.... ^^^

OMGhhkp + Black Friday + Giveaway Info.

Long time no see. I've been time and time again making attempts to get back in the grove of blogging again, but unfortunately my attempts have failed so far. I always remember how rewarding the blogging experience was and how much I've always loved talking about books, but my life sadly hasn't permitted me. Perhaps, I have too much on my plate at the moment, or it was that I wanted to get professional blog design before I came back for good.

In the effort of finally making a last attempt, I'm going book shopping on black Friday to get back into book shopping and we'll keep constantly posting after that. I'm completely aware that the sales at bookstores tomorrow aren't as big as the ones at others stores, but for shopaholics like book buyers who want to splurge/can't resist anything we'll help. I've done my research and put it into a list for you !

In My Mailbox (34)

Yes, I took a short leave, but I'm in the process of coming back. The books I've been reading have been blowing me away, I just want to comeback and share the experience.


In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie! It is a list of the books that I've received over the previous week, either in the mail, from the bookstore, or from trades.

Here's what I got this week:



Bought:

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Other:

Historical Fiction Books, etc I got at a sale for free

Whirlwind by Cathy Marie Hake
A Lady of Hidden Intent by Tracie Peterson
The Measure of a Lady by Deeanne Gist
Sonnet of a Dead Contessa by Gilbert Morris
Left Behind by Time LaHaye

So-so IMM, but I'm just getting back to purchasing books after I took a break from buying books until I read most of my TBR pile. I'm so excited for Twilight, I can't explain how much.

^^^ Now I want to see what you got in your mailbox.... ^^^
