In My Mailbox (14)

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.

Lots of books this week! I'm a bit overwhelmed, to be honest. First off, I have Scott Pilgrim Vs The Universe and Scott Pilgrim in His Finest Hour by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Looking forward to reading these two and finishing off the series. I also took out A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. It was amazing and I put The Knife of Never Letting Go on my Christmas list after reading it. The Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz looks amazing and I might lend it to my Mom when I'm finished. I was a big fan of Kit Pearson when I was younger and her newest book is called The Whole Truth. I'm very excited about reading it! Earlier this week, I read Home for the Holidays (Mother-Daughter Book Club.) In the book, the girls read the Betsy-Tacy series. I decided to take out Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace. In the first book, Betsy is only five, but the series shows her through her high school years and I think it finishes with her wedding. Next I have Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein. Of all the books I took out, this is the one I could see me not having time for. Hopefully that's not the case though. And last but not least, I have The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstein. I am technically reading this right now, but I'm only on page 3 or something like that. I don't read very much on weekends, usually. I've heard that this is the best book of the year, so I'm very excited to read it. 

I won Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange from Goodreads! It was actually the first book I've ever won. Ever. Yay! 

What was in your mailbox this week?

  3. I have Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace. I had forgotten about it until I was compiling my spreadsheet. I didn't realise it was part of a series though! It's such a cute book.
