In My Mailbox (8)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren that gives bloggers a way to showcase novels that may otherwise not get face time on their blog. This is my 8th week participating and here are the books I got:

Used Bookstore:

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr

Night World #1 by L.J. Smith
Night World #2 by L.J. Smith
Night World #3 by L.J. Smith

I love that each of these books contains 3 stories each!  It makes them that much better :)

The Awakening & The Struggle (Vampire Diaries #1-2) by L.J. Smith
The Fury & Dark Reunion (Vampire Diaries #3-4) by L.J. Smith

My sister is a big fan of the CW show, but I couldn't get into it because I was a few seasons behind...lol.  She was not happy with all the questions I kept asking about what was going on.  So I thought I'd read the books and see if I like them instead!

This used bookstore bunch was awesome!  I didn't have to pay a dime because I traded in some books I didn't want anymore.  I have no doubt I'll go back there again and either trade in more for credit or just pick up more books I want to read for cheap.

What did you get in your mailbox?

P.S. Don't forget to check out My Birthday Giveaway!

You have excellent taste in books! The NightWorld series is one of my absolute faves, and I LOVE WL and IE. The VD books are really, really really different from the TV show though. I like em both, but just sommat to be aware of :P

@ Grace - Thanks for following! I'll have to stop on over :)

@ Cait - Thank you for letting me know how different they are. I guess I'll have to go on Hulu or something to catch up on the show :) Thanks for following!

@ Melissa - Wicked Lovely sounds awesome. I almost bought the 3rd in the series, but thought I should read 1 & 2 to make sure I like them. :)

I love the Wicked Lovely series, though I think the Vampire Diaries tv series is better than the books. happy reading!

Great set! Yay for Melissa Marr. I've only read Wicked Lovely but I really liked it and want to read the others.

Wiked Lovely is a great series!

I will tell you- The Vampire Diaries Series is VERY different from the show- and I liked the books WAY more!

Thanks for visiting everyone! I'll make sure to check out your IMM :) I guess I'll have to read the books and check out the series of Vampire Diaries to see which one I like better since I've heard different from everyone.

I've just finished "The Vampire Diaries" series but I probably wouldn't recommend going beyond "The Dark Reunion". I'm yet to start Melissa Marr's series but just purchased the last one yesterday.
