In My Mailbox (48)

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.

I swore to myself I wouldn't buy any books this week and I didn't, although it was a close call. I was going to buy this lovely copy of the The Spiderwick Chronicles (books one through five). There was some water damage, so I ended getting it for free, thus never technically bought any books this week. I've never read the series or seen the movie, but I've always wanted to. 

Library books! I'm starting to worry that I've taken out more than I can handle. I have The Last Letter For Your Lover by JoJo Moyes, The Anne Frank House Authorized Biography by Sidney Jacobson, The Stone Keeper (Amulet) by Kazu Kabuishi, The Kill Order by James Dashner, When the War Began by John Marsden, Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta and Volumes 3 and 4 of Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya. All of my holds just came in at once! The Amulet books are supposed to be very good graphic novels. I've read the other books in The Maze Runner series and am looking forward to the prequel, The Kill Order. Jellicoe Road and Where the War Began were both recommended to me. The beautiful mug pictured was made for me by my friend Nicole. 

What was in your mailbox this week? 


  1. I've seen people raving about Jellicoe Road!

    1. I've started it and I can't get into it! I guess I just have to keep reading.

  2. Oooo, I have seen so many people fangirl all over Jellicoe Road but have yet to read that.

    Hope you love all your new reads!

    My Bookish Haul

  3. I know, I have so many books out from the library. It's crazy. Plus books that I have purchased, and books for my kindle. I have Jellicoe Road out as well. I have heard absolutely wonderful things about it. I have been trying to read a lot this weekend, but so far, I've only finished one book. I am reading another one, though, and hope to finish before I have to go to work Monday.

    I've been slacking on my blog duties this weekend because I've been trying to get so many other things done. Good luck reading all your books :)

    Oh, and The Spiderwick Chronicles are totally cute. I think you will enjoy them.

    Here's my IMM

  4. I really need to read the Maze Runner series. Good haul this week.

    Check out my IMM & SP.

  5. I have a tendency to do that with library books too (probably because I request a bunch and then they all show up at once haha)
    Fruit Basket is such a cute series, I hope you're enjoying it!

    This is my IMM at Bookmunchies(:

  6. Great Haul!! I have been wanting to get my hands on The Kill Order but I'm trying not to buy any books at the moment and my library doesn't have it in. Poor On the Jellicoe Road has been sitting on my bookshelf for about 8 months now

  7. I did not see that cover for The Spiderwick Chronicles - it's beautiful!
    You can see my IMM here.

    Happy reading!
