In My Mailbox (36)

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.

Sorry for the horrible quality photo- I wasn't having much luck today! From the library, I took out Willdwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier, Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George, Cinder by Marissa Meyer and The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood. The Unseen Guest yesterday is the third book in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series, which follows a plucky governess in Victorian England whose charges were literally raised by wolves. I read it yesterday and I thought it was very good and funny. Of the other books from the library, I am most excited to read Cinder. All I know about it is what could be guessed from the cover. I am also just about to go to the library and pick up my hold on the movie The Help, which I am very excited about since I've had it on hold since December. 

I also bought two books, the first I've already read a few times. I Want To Go Home by Gordon Korman is a very funny book about summer camp, and I've loved it since my fifth grade teacher read it to my class. I also bought The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson. 

That's it for me this week, what new books did you receive this week? 


  1. Awesome books! I've been wanting to read Cinder for a while now, I hope you can post a review of it! (:
    (Thanks for commenting on my IMM!)

  2. Hope you had a nice camping trip! I really need to get on reading The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place books. They look so good but I never seem to get around to them!

  3. I really do love the Maryrose Wood covers.

  4. I can't wait till you read Cinder! I've heard really good things about it and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

  5. Ah, Cinder is so far one of the best books I have read this year. The idea scares and brings doubt to some people, but it is so worth the read! :)

  6. It looks like you like fairytale retellings a lot. So do I! And I LOVED Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George. She also wrote Princess of the Midnight Ball, which is good, too. But I really loved Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow. I hope you like! I would to see your review of it.

    For some reason it is not recognizing my blog address. It's Sorry to put it in a comment like this.
