In My Mailbox (6)

So this week I definitely shouldn't have, but I totally did. I went to another library book sale. I spent a little too much probably, but I found a couple of great books. It wasn't as good as my library's sale...but what can I say? I'm biased! I would have done another vlog post this weekend, but with being sick, I'd sound like a stuffy frog, and no one needs to hear that. XD


(I bought Dracula because it was such an awesome old edition, full of illustrations. I was really happy to find Swan Thieves too! I love Elizabeth Kostova. And The Bitten is actually the fourth in a vampire huntress series, so I'm going to have to find the first ones. :-P)

(Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! I can't believe I haven't read this yet. I also found a Wuthering Heights remix, Wuthering Bites. The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters was a series I read a while ago, and really loved, so now I'm going to have to find Volume 2 to match. Harry Potter to fuel my addition of course, and Sarah Addison Allen is a local NC author that was recommended to me by a friend.)
(I was so excited to find Valiant since I found Tithe at the first book sale I went to. I absolutely love Brian Froud, so I couldn't pass his up. I also managed to find the first House of Night book, Marked. I've been meaning to try the series at some point. I also found Inkspell and Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke. Only Inkheart wasn't there! Now I'm going to have to hunt down a library binding of it to complete the collection.)

{Bought & Borrowed}

(I had a few awesome coupons for Barnes & Noble, so I finally bought the Twilight series, in a lovely box set. And I borrowed Wicked Lovely from the library this week as well.)


So that's what I got this week. What's in your mailbox?

  1. Lots of good books this week I'm jealous! Happy Reading!

    Chelsea @ Rand0m Girl

  2. If you're a fan of LJ Smith please stop by, their is some horrible news about the Vampire Diaries series:

  3. Looks like you got some great books there and they'll certainly keep you in reading material for quite a while! :)

  4. @Chelsmac91: Thanks! :D

    @Khadija: I've actually never read anything by L.J. Smith, but that does suck majorly. :(

    @Nikki-ann: I know! I have way too many books, and not enough time.

  5. I'm so jealous! Why don't my libraries ever have book sales?!? Sounds like they always have awesome bargains. Enjoy!

  6. @Cialina: Aw, that sucks. The libraries in my area have 'Friends' programs, which is basically just a bunch of people who like to make important decisions and raise money for us. :-P Usually, we average $20,000 a year from our book sales, which means all kinds of new furniture and books for us. :D I don't see why any library couldn't start one.

  7. Hi,

  8. WOW! That is a heck of a mailbox there, I'm super impressed! I really enjoyed Wicked Lovely, it was one that really didn't feel like a YA book at all to me when I was reading, it was just an interesting story:)

  9. @Kyanara: Aw, thank you! =3

    @Jenny: I'm really excited to read Wicked Lovely. I've heard nothing but good things about the whole series. :D

  10. Wow, this is an incredible mailbox! Go you! I also picked up Song of the Sparrow from a library sale. Still haven't read it though :P I love Brian Froud. His artwork is so enchanting. Nice finds!

    -Small Review

  11. Good god, what an incredible haul!
    A library I used to work for had wonderful used book sales, but nothing so grand as this. Nice work!

  12. Whoa! Talk about a good book haul! I'm wondering how the heck you're ever going to read through all those haha. Some great books and others I haven't heard of, which is prompting me to go looksies. Have fun reading! :D
