In My Mailbox (19)

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.

Merry Christmas! I got exactly what I wanted this Christmas: books! I recieved A Game of Thrones by George R. Martin, Lonely Planet's guide to New York City, The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano, Emma by Jane Austen, The Invention of Huge Cabret by Brian Selznick and How to Be an Explorer of the World by Keri Smith.

I was lucky enough to not only get Harry Potter: Page to Screen, but I also found a perfect place for it! I was afraid for a moment I'd have nowhere to put this beautiful (and very big) book, but there is just enough room on top of one of my shelves. I'm really looking forward to reading and reviewing this monstrous book!

These magnetic bookmarks from my stocking are perfect for me! I also got a Deathly Hallows bookmark, Harry Potter Ultimate Edition DVD's for 4 and 5, a Keep Calm and Carry On mug, chocolates, a wallet, a memory card, a lock for my suitcase and some gift certificates. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas, and feel free to post the link to you own IMM in the comments. 


  1. Oh, that Harry Potter book is cool. I would love that! Hope you'll enjoy all your new reads. :)

    Happy Holiday! My Christmas IMM!

  2. I've read Game of Thrones and The Solitude of Prime Numbers. The first one is very cool, if you've seen the series then, you know what I'm talking about.
    The second one... it's beautifully written, but probably one of the most depressing books I've ever read. Just make sure you're in a good mood when you read it! But otherwise, it's a wonderful story.
    Merry Christmas!

  3. It sounds like you had a very bookish Christmas! I hope you like The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It's in my TBR pile, and I want to see the Scorsese movie adaptation. The visuals remind me of something out of a Van Allsburg picture book. Feel free to check out my IMM @

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Man, do I love that Harry Potter book of yours! I really need to start on the series! Sheesh!

    So cool that you have lots of books as gifts on Christmas!

    Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
