In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren that I decided to partake in. This is my 5th week participating and I have some sad yet happy news all at the same time.
First of all, I'll start with my library books! I got three books from the library I've been waiting for...
Bumped (Bumped #1) by Megan McCafferty
The She by Carol Plum-Ucci
The Lying Game (The Lying Game #1) by Sara Shepard
Okay...now, on to the exciting yet sad part. An independent bookstore near me is closing (which is sad), but they now had 60% off all original prices...so....I bought a TON of new books because they were so cheap! Here we go with the pictures...
Found (The Missing #1) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Crank (Crank #1) by Ellen Hopkins (this one was actually from my sister!)
Hold Still by Nina LaCour
Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers
This sounded like an interesting series, so I had to give it a shot since the bookstore had the first three...
Strange Angels (Strange Angels #1) by Lili St. Crow
Betrayals (Strange Angels #2) by Lili St. Crow
Jealousy (Strange Angels #3) by Lili St. Crow
This is another series that sounded interesting, and for the price I couldn't pass it up!
The Battle of Jericho (Jericho #1) by Sharon M. Draper
November Blues (Jericho #2) by Sharon M. Draper
Just Another Hero (Jericho #3) by Sharon M. Draper
AND finally...the last four books I picked up at the bookstore this week!
Red Moon Rising by Peter Moore
Blood Red Road (Dustlands #1) by Moira Young
The Host (The Host #1) by Stephenie Meyer
This World We Live In (Last Survivors #3) by Susan Beth Pfeffefer (this one I messed up on...I didn't think it was a series when I skimmed the back. Guess I'll have to pick up #1 & 2 now!)
Phew...there's the summary of what I picked up this week! Although it is so sad to see an Independent bookstore close, especially one that has been around in the community for 20 years and specializes in children and YA books, it was also great to pick up some books at an awesome price. I support my independent bookstores as much as possible and I think they're an important part of our communities. But enough of my ranting!
