In My Mailbox and Mailbox Monday - 4/4

IMM is a meme started at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.

Mailbox Monday can be found at: The Printed Page

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This week I got seven books.  Two of them were books for review.  I got Divergent by Veronica Roth through the Amazon Vine program and am excited to read it.  I also got an e-book of A Tale of Two Goblins by HP Mallory; this is part of a book tour I am participating in later this month.

The next five books I bought at a Borders closing near our house.  I am sad they are closing but am stoked to pick up some great books at 50% off.  You can see them below; all of them are books I have been wanting forever.  The only one that was an impulse by was The Stuff of Legend which was a graphic novel that was just too interesting and beautiful looking to pass up.

Hope you all got wonderful books and have an excellent week of reading ahead of you!
