In My Mailbox (28)

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 bought French Women For All Seasons: A Year of Secrets, Recipes and Pleasure by Mireille Guiliano. I have to admit I'm more interested in the recipes than anything else. I found this for .50 cents, and it's by the author of French Women Don't Get Fat. I'm assuming it's not a sequel, but I'm not sure.

Earlier in the week I took out The Death Cure by James Dashner and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. The Death Cure is the third book in the series, following The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials. I read Where She Went earlier in the week, and it didn't quite live up to If I Stay

More books from the library! I was killing time and picked up Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett to glance through. I ended up liking it enough to take it out, and I'm reading it right now. It kind of reminds me of The Westing Game. Saving June by Hannah Harrington was recommended to me by theyretakingthehobbitsto yesterday. I also took out Looking at the Moon by Kit Pearson, the sequel to The Sky is Falling. This will be a reread for me. I just realized that I have way too many books to read before I go on vacation on March 8th to South Carolina. While some of the books I took out last week will probably not get read, I really hope to read all of the ones I took out this week. 

What was in your mailbox this week? 


  1. Where She Went is pretty awesome...bit of a tear-jerker but hey, that's Gayle Forman for ya :) Have a great week!

  2. That French Women book looks really good! :) Where She Went and Chasing Vermeer are both fabulous, and I have Saving June on my TBR pile. I have seriously heard nothing but great about that book! Happy reading! :)


  3. Saving June is a great book, I really enjoyed it when I read it :)

  4. Chasing Vermeer sounds exactly like my kind of book. Plus I love Brett Helquist and The Westing Game (I reviewed the book some time ago when we had our Whodunit theme last year). Will definitely check that out from our library. Hope we have a copy.

    Here's ours over at GatheringBooks:

  5. Great mailbox this week so many books that I have been wanting to read but Haven't gotten the chance to yet.
    Happy reading

  6. I read Saving June in November, I think, and I really enjoyed it :) I'm SO apprehensive about The Death Cure :\ Hopefully you'll have something positive to say about it!

  7. French Women For All Seasons looks like such a beautiful book. I've had a quick flick through French Women Don't Get Fat, but that's all.

    I do have The Maze Runner to read, but it's been eaten by my TBR pile! I really want to get round to it though, because I've heard it's amazing :)

  8. Saving June was so good. I loved it. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here's my IMM!
