In My Mailbox, the third

It's going to be a busy weekend for me, so I'm posting my IMM now, as ever hosted by The Story Siren.

I've been quite lucky with books this week.. it's been kind of a slow-down in books acquired via the book-swapping website AND charity shops, but the numbers were certainly made up in other ways...

Via book-swapping website:

Tempted by PC and Kristin Cast (not pictured)
Big Mouth and Ugly Girl by Joyce Carol Oates
Girl With Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace
Divine by Mistake by PC Cast

Someone very nice on ReadItSwapIt offered to send me Girl With Curious Hair for free and turned down my offer of postage reimbursement or sending her one of my books in the future. It was very nice of her. It really made my day.

Via author/publisher/giveaways

Swapped By A Kiss by Luisa Plaja
Angel by LA Weatherley

I'm super excited about recieving Swapped By A Kiss! I read Luisa's other book, Split By A Kiss last week and ADORED it. An enormous thank you to Luisa Plaja for sending this to me! I heart you! I cannot wait to tell you all about both books.

And Angel has such a pretty cover.

Via charity shops:

The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood
Bluebeard's Egg by Margaret Atwood
The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid

I usually pick up more books in charity shops than this, but hey-ho. That's the way it goes.

From my good friend over at asamum reads:

The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint
Extreme Kissing by Luisa Plaja
Infinity by Sherilyn Kenyon
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
Maus II by Art Spiegleman
Timbuktu by Paul Auster
Two Lives by Vikram Seth
Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn
Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Look at all these books! Isn't she good to me? I am absolutely thrilled by all of these, especially Unwind. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Unhooking the Moon by Gregory Hughes

And just the one book bought this week, after reading a review over at Chicklish. And that is it.

Which books came into your house this week?


  1. The Onion Girl! The Onion Girl! I loved The Onion Girl!!

  2. You are welcome :D
    Wow you did well with the swapping this week, hmmm what do I covet ;)

  3. I hope that you enjoy the relustant fundamentalist - it is such a quick read and I recall really enjoying it.

    Bon weekend!

  4. I only acquired one book this week, and I'm giving it away probably sometime in July - but it was a wonderful one! Monsters of Men! I loved it so much! You were absolutely right about how good it was. I cried at least four times when I was reading it.

  5. Holy crap! What a haul. These look delicious. I had some ARCs arrive at my house this week, but for the life of me I can't recall the titles. All YA stuff.


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
