In My Mailbox (25)

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.

This week I got two new books for 50 cents total! Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok I picked out from The Little Free Library in the Beaches. For .50 I bought How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff from my library's bookshop, where I volunteer. I've already read How I Live Now, but I'd like to give it a reread. 

From the library, my hold on A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler came in. In the book, a girl skips a year of her life and finds she is no longer friends with her best friend, Autumn. I've been looking for a book to review on Valentine's Day, and I'm still hoping my hold on The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith will come in, but it's still on order. Just in case, I picked up Love Story by Jennifer Echols and Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. I'd been recommended these two books at some point, but after examining them closely I'm having my doubts about them both. They don't really look like my thing.

I also picked up a lot of travel books at the library. I have a job at a summer camp, so I'm (hopefully) going to Bath, London and Paris for two weeks in September. Unless something goes wrong, so here's hoping. I've already booked my hostels, since I was looking at places while I tried to make up my mind, and rooms I wanted were booked up a few days later. So I'm spending all weekend reading travel books with my Mom. I've never been on a plane before and I've never traveled alone, so this should be interesting. Feeling very spoilt since I went to New York a month ago and the family and I are going to South Carolina in March. 

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


  1. I lived in London for 3 months and I loved it! London's really great!! I hope you'll like it!

  2. Ohhh, have definitely heard good things about How I Live Now. Hope you liked it. A Year Without Autumn looks lovely -- is it MG? I need to look it up. And OMG you're going to Bath, London & Paris? Wow. Consider me jealous. :D

    Here's my IMM :)
