In My Mailbox [2]

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share books that we've received.

This week, I have acquired three new books!

First one on the left is The Wish List by Eoin Colfer, which I bought at the little bookstore my library has in its lobby. I’ll admit that all the reviews I’ve read say it’s really weird, but that doesn’t make it bad. And besides, how can you pass up a mint-condition $.65 book?

Second is Beast by Donna Jo Napoli, which I’m currently reading (hence, the tassel bookmark) for my book club. I’m not sure what to think of it so far. It’s a bit too graphic…

Third is Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce, also from the library bookstore. I have never read any of Pierce’s other books, but I’ve heard that she’s a good author. You can tell by the cover illustration that this is an 80’s or early 90’s edition. There's even a mail order form on the last page!


  1. I like to read Donna Jo Napoli's fairy tale retellings, but this is one that I just didn't feel like finishing. Much like your comments on the sidebar, I was wondering if we really needed to read about some of those things.

  2. I agree, it's going to be awkward when I have to tell my book club why I didn't like this book...


I read and appreciate every comment, so thank you in advance!
