In my mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all play show and tell with the books we received during the week!

Ok, I just bought two in the way of books this week---and no library check-outs! Amazing! :) I did include the magazine I picked up at Barnes during the week, thought it might be of interest to my fellow bloggers. Some really incredible stuff in's just so pretty to look at! I was SO SO SO excited to pick up Gone and I had to track it down among a few different stores because it was selling so fast! I may even have to put my current read on hold to get going on this one! The third book shown, Wild Magic, is actually something I came across in the children's section of Barnes, but I thought it might have some good cross-over appeal for those of us who love the retelling of old fairy tales. It tells what happened after the Pied Piper led the children out of Hamlin---right into a fantastical world of magic and danger!!

Gone by Lisa McMann
Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill
Artful Blogging put out by Somerset Magazine

Hope it was a great book week for everyone! I'd love for you to comment and link me up to what you got!!


  1. Wow... I have heard some great thing about the Gone series!!! I hope I get to read it one day!! Enjoy!!!

  2. Ooh, I so want to read Gone! I'll have to go and get it soon. Happy Reading!

  3. Great books! I haven't managed to get that far in the Wake series yet, but I know loads of people are anxious for Gone. Enjoy!

  4. Wild Magic sounds interesting. I love fairy tale retellings. I'm glad you were able to track down a copy of Gone. I hate when you go to the book store specifically to buy a particular book sure that it will be waiting for you and then it is not. Now I usually shop online because there isn't a good bookstore nearby.

    I am curious about that magazine you purchased, Artful Blogging. Is it more about art, or blogging, or blogging about art?

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  5. I would like to read Gone. Here's Mine

  6. gone is amazing. I just love Lisa.
