In My Mailbox and Mailbox Monday - 8/8

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 sixteen books. Four of them were from the library and five of them were for review.  The remaining seven I picked up at Half Price Books.  Half Price Books can be a dangerous place especially since I was just thinking about how I wanted to read Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles...then surprise!  there they all were in a clearance bundle, $2 for all four books.  Possession was another great find, only $8.
Anyway enough about that, you can see more about them below.  Hope that you all got great books and have a wonderful week of reading!

  1. I can see tears falling down and landing on the Where She Went pages... Maybe? (laughs) That book made me cry SO much. Enjoy. Have some tissues beside you!

  2. mfay2,
    Just finished Where She Went, it wasn't as sad as the first book but still a bit of a tear jerker in the end :-)

    Jenn,
    I also absolutely loved the cover of Demon Lover. I have to (guilty) admit that's part of the reason I requested it for review!
