In My Mailbox (6)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren that gives readers the chance to share the books they bought/received/swapped/rented over the past week.

This week, the hubby and I went on what we like to call a "Goodwill Run." I am a major fan of Goodwill and love love love to shop for the next great find! This week, it looked like someone cleaned out their bookshelf of some pretty rad YA books. 
Me + GoodCheapBooks = Loved
I hit the YA jackpot! Unfortunately I am on a budget, so I had to leave some lovelies at the store. :(
But, I did score some fabulous reads. At least I hope.

 I don't think that I have ever read a novel about fairies. But, I have had my eye on these ones for a while. And I figure it they would be a nice start to what is sure to be my fairy book addiction. How beautiful are these covers?? Just gorgeous.

I am usually kind of iffy when it come to vampire books. I love love Twilight so much that it is difficult to pick up another novel. It is kind of like new boyfriends. I will always compare the new one that got away, except in this case, my "old boyfriend: lives on my shelf. 
Anyways, this one sounds kind of fun, and I like to add fun lighthearted books in here and there so I don't get jumpy.

I have been putting off Blue Bloods for a while now. While I was shopping the shelves, it just kind of jumped out at me. Fate?? I guess we will see when I sink my teeth into this one!

What is in your mailbox??

I love the Blue Bloods series. It's definitely one of my favorites! Great books this week! :)

Wings and spells both have gorgeous covers!

I'm an old follower!:D

The wings series was fantastic! They're definitely not like typical faery books, even if you haven't read any before. Aprilynne Pike is fantastic at setting up her world slowly. The third one, Illusions, also just came out in May if you enjoy these. The Blue Bloods series is fun but a bit slower in terms of actual things happening. Still, Melissa de la Cruz is a fantastic writer. Hope you enjoy!!

Happy reading!

I actually got a free e-copy of Wings, but I've been wanting to read Spells so it looks like I need to push myself to go ahead and read the first book in the series. And I've also got the first book in the Bluebloods series, myself. So, great IMM! :)

Totally following your blog!

Wow, you got some great books! I've never bought books from Goodwill before but I'm glad you found some good ones! Were these in good condition?

Great IMM and happy reading!


Sonny said...

Yeah, they are in pretty good condition. I was lil to lazy last night to take actual pictures. I will next time :) The only thing that I don't like about getting books at Goodwill is that they put the terrible stickers on the fronts. But otherwise, they read the same!

I'm glad you've mentioned Aprilynne Pike as I keep on seeing her name but never had a chance to look her up. I didn't know she wrote faerie books - interesting! The Iron Fey series got me interested in them so I might have to try them out.

Sonny said...

Oh, I have to get my nose into The Iron Fey books. I need more time!
