In My Mailbox [1]

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

(Since you can do IMM on any day you want, from now on I'll be posting IMM every Thursday or Sunday.)

So, I didn't buy many books this week. However, on Monday I was at the Half-Price Books in Humble, and I found a hardcover edition of Inkheart for only $3! Which of course, I had to buy. Inkheart was a really good book, although in my opinion, the movie was better.

My main source of books is the public library. I usually go to the library 3-4 times a month because I participate in a book club and volunteer group there. Today I went there for the volunteer group meeting, and afterward I managed to borrow some books.

(I apologize if you can't see the picture well, I couldn't figure out how to turn off the flash on my camera)

The top book on the left is The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor. It's a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, and from what I've heard, it's supposed to be amazing. Since I love Alice in Wonderland, I'll be looking forward to reading it.

The second is Between Mom and Jo by Julie Anne Peters. It's about a boy whose parents are getting a divorce, except the unique thing is that his parents are both women. I've read another one of Peter's books, Keeping You A Secret, and I really liked it.

The third is Doomed Queen Anne by Carolyn Meyer, which is a fictional account of Anne Boleyn. Carolyn Meyer is a very good writer, what I especially admire about her books is that they are historically accurate.

The fourth book is The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson. I first heard of this book about a year ago, and I thought it was realistic fiction. But today at the library, I noticed that it was in the sci-fi section, so I checked it out. I'm not sure what it's about, other than the protagonist wakes up from a comma with no idea who she is.


  1. Looks like you have some great books this week! :)

  2. Thanks! I just started Doomed Queen Anne and it's really good so far!


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