In My Mailbox (20)

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 year, new books! This week my hold on The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach came in at the library. I have no idea what it's about, but I heard it's one of the best books of the year. From Chapters I bought Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket.) I will probably post my review tomorrow. I also bought Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. I've already read it, but I loved it so much I had to buy it. At check out I found out that I had some free money on my plum card from buying so many books in the past, so I decided to get An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. This will make me sound insane, but it's been driving me crazy that my copy doesn't match the rest of my John Green books. I'm really anal about books. From Homesense I found Let's Go Paris for $2. I love travel books, even if I'm not actually going to Paris anytime soon. 

That's it for me- what was in your mailbox this past week? 


  1. Why We Broke Up!! I just read it. Isn't it so pretty????? LOVE!!!!!!!!!

    Stop by my IMM

  2. YAY FOR MATCHING BOOKS! I don't think you're crazy!

    What "An Abundance of..." did you have before? I've only seen the one you have (I have it too).

  3. I had this one:
    The style is actually similar-ish to The Fault in Our Stars cover.

  4. An Abundance of Katherines!!!! I have it in my shelf but I still haven't read it... I've read Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns in 2011... and I loved them both, I will read this one as soon as I can ;)

    Happy New Year Emma!!!!! <3

  5. Ooh yeah! I actually have seen that one xD I like it better I think.

  6. Hi Emma, I didn't realize that Why We Broke Up is by Lemony Snicket - now I have got to find that book!!! Thanks for alerting me about this bit. I am a huge Snicket fan - I have all 13 of his Series of Unfortunate Events - and I also enjoyed Beatrice Letters. And Horseradish. :)

    I've read John Green's Looking for Alaska - I hope you enjoy Abundance of Katherines! :)

    here's my IMM for the week:

    Happy New Year, Emma!

  7. As per Paris, I bought David Lebovitz's The Sweet Life in Paris for the exact same reason! What an awesome city!

    PS: Please visit the book complaining In My Neglected Mailbox this week. Thanks!
