In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by Kristi from The Story Siren where bloggers can share what books they've received and what they're planning on reviewing. 

So, I haven’t done an official IMM in a month, so I figured it’s about time to make it known what books I’ve gotten in the last month.  Today I hit up the Borders sale at the mall near my college.  Everything is 40% off, and the YA section was almost cleared out already!  I only found 3 books that I couldn’t live without, everything else I either already owned or wasn’t too interested in it.  I went trying to find Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones because I haven’t started that series yet and it sounds like a good one to start soon, but I couldn’t find any of the City books.  

Books I got at the Borders Sale Today
• Wither by Lauren DeStefano
• Mercy by Rebecca Lim
• Captivate (Need #2) by Carrie Jones

I like to think loves me, I feel so lucky to have these books added to my collection.  I also kind-of can’t wait until later in my blogs life when I can host a giveaway to give back to my followers the way other bloggers do. :)

Other books I’ve purchased since my last IMM:
• Abandon by Meg Cabot (from a Borders Sale)
• Firelight w/ Bonus Material (eBook from B&N NOOK Book Store) 
• Straight Stalk by Tera Lynn Childs (eBook from Amazon Kindle store, this was an oops since now I plan to get a Nook, not a Kindle)
• I also just ordered a few books online
- Divergent by Veronica Roth (hopefully I’m getting this one this week)
- Across the Universe by Beth Reves (hopefully I’m getting this one this week too)
- Pre-ordered Carrier of the Mark
- Pre-ordered The Name of the Star (the day before I won it) from the NYC bookstore near Maureen Johnson so it will be signed and I get handmade presents too :)
