In My Mailbox (12)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, in which book bloggers post about the books they've bought, borrowed or received in the past week.

New books for me this week! My diploma came in the mail on Friday and my Dad let me pick out some books as a gift. I love me some Sherlock Holmes, and I thought I should finally read A Study in Scarlett. I own The Hound of the Baskervilles in the same edition. I also decided on some red moleskines to write in. 

Lots of library books this week! Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Ann Rigler, Magic Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver, The Alchemyst by Michael Scott, The Tale Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo, Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness and Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Earlier on in the week, I read and returned Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Mysterious Howling

I also took out Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien. The book is a compilation of letters and drawings Tolkien wrote to his children from Father Christmas. I've only flipped through so far but it's lovely!


  1. I love your IMM this week! I haven't ever heard of the Father Christmas book but I think I'm going to have to get my hands on it now.

    Thanks for the lovely pictures, too! I love how you've photographed the library books.

  2. Nice IMM. Letters From Father Christmas looks so cool.

  3. The Alchemyst is a must read along with the rest of the series! I started reading them about a year and a half ago and I'm hooked. If you end up liking it you should check out the 2 e-book novellas that the author wrote as well.

    Happy reading :)

  4. Great haul! I love your book end! :D
