In My Mailbox {36}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week on my new photo setup :) To those who were wondering, I actually don't have whole shelf completely free that I can take these photos on---this one is usually a partially full shelf and a knick-knack, so it's easy to take down for the IMM photos. My lovely wall o' shelves is very nearly full with my books, hubby's books ( he reads historical books and lots of MG adventure stuff), and also houses my collection of vintage cameras. :) Yup, I like photography, too :) I'll have to do a shelf tour sometime soon.

So, no review books this week, which on one hand is sad, but on another is kinda of "phew!" so I can get a little caught up. I did get a finished copy of Halo, which was a fun surprise (thanks, Feiwel & Friends!!) I also got in a trip to my used book store and got some great stuff!! Oh, and one library check-out. :)

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
I was given the first two of this series, and haven't had a chance to get to them yet. I saw this one and figured I would complete the set (so far!) 4 bucks, how could I pass it up?

A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
I recently read and LOVED this authors upcoming release, Revolution. I can't wait to read more of her work!

Starlighter by Bryan Davis
Couldn't resist this cover, and after reading Firelight recently, I wanted more dragons stories!

Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris
I read a great review of this by Amelia at Imagination in Focus this past week, so when I found it at the used book store in perfect condition, I happily grabbed it!

Library check-out:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
I've never read this before, but I read "Jane" this week by April Lindner and was so in love with the story, I decided I had to go back and read the amazing classic that it's based on.

So I hope everyone has a happy reading week!! Show me those mailboxes so I can add to my need-to-read list!! :)


  1. Great books this week! I got City of Glass as well, and I'm currently reading Jane. Glad to know you liked it. Happy reading! :)

  2. I have to agree, I love the shelf design you use to take your IMM pictures. I may even try it out next week with my own IMM. I've also been receiving less and less review books for the past couple weeks, I have no idea what's going on but the library has been my best friend as you can see imm.

  3. Read Clare's books now!! :P But seriously I only recently read them and mentally kicked myself for taking so long.

  4. I love the cover of Star Lighter and I think I'm going to go look at it more on Goodreads. I love your idea of displaying your books on the shelf :) Have a great week

  9. I can't wait to get started on Revolution! Hope you enjoy A Northern Light - it sounds really good! Happy reading! xo

  10. I love The Mortal Instruments series to death. Seriously, it's an amazing series, you'll love it.

  11. Oh, City of Glass was awesome! I hope you love it! It's kind of funny, you had books 1 & 2, and I only have book 3. I borrowed the first two from the library, but then bought book 3. :)

  12. Great books this week...I am officially obsessed with your bookshelf- it's fabulous! I LOVED The Mortal Instruments series- you must read it! Enjoy all your books!

  13. I also bought A Northern Light the other day having recently finished and loved Revolution! And I'm currently listening to the audiobook for City of Bones. And I received an ARC of Jane (a modern-retelling of Jane Eyre) this week at my library. Anyway, seems like we're on the same page here!

  14. I'll have to check out that other dragon book for SURE! Somehow that one must have flew over my radar or something. Love how you set your books up like that!

  15. A Northern Light is so freakin good. I hope you like it!

  16. Jane Eyre is so good. Happy reading!

  17. You have great reading to look forward to! I really enjoyed TMI and hope you do too. My IMMB is here Have a great weekend!

  18. I love your book photos idea! It's so great when people have unique ideas to feature things with! I loved City of Glass and Jane Eyre is one of my favorites! I actually didn't participate in IMMB this new books :( Trying to catch up on my TBR! LOL I did want to pass an award on to you though if you are interested. I know some people don't like to do awards, so there is certainly no pressure to accept! Just wanted to share the fun!

  19. A Northern Light has been sitting on my book shelf for so long. I need to pick it up and read it as it seems that everyone loves it.

    I hope that you enjoy Jane Eyre. It is such a wonderful love story! I have not read it in awhile though (not since high school) and am thinking that I should read it before or after I read Jane.

    Have a great reading week!

  20. Great reads. I've always wanted to read Jennifer Donnelly.
