In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren that gives readers the chance to share the books they bought/received/swapped/rented over the past week.


For review:
Bronxwood by Coe Booth (thank you Scholastic!)
Eyes in the Mirror by Julia Mayer (thanks Sourcebooks!)
The Watchers/The Marked by Inara Scott (thanks Inara!)
Vanish by Sophie Jordan (thanks Big Honcho Media and HarperTeen!)
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs  (thanks Big Honcho Media and Katherine Tegen Books!)

Bought:
Rhymes with Witches by Lauren Myracle (25 cents at a garage sale!)

Yay for great book weeks! There is nothing better than coming home to books in the mailbox :)

For those of you who saw my post on Friday, I went to see the Lord of the Rings at an outdoor venue and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra played the score. It was ah-mazing! Here’s a pic from the concert with Anna’s head on the left haha :)

  1. I’m interested to hear what you think about The Marked. I read the first book and thought it was just okay.
    Also, I love garage sales! People are often so glad that people want to buy their stuff, that they’ll give you incredible deals. I’ve found such good books at garage sales.

  2. Sweet Venom looks so brilliant! I am SO SO jealous about the LOTR showing! That is so awesome

  3. Looks like a great haul. I’ve heard of Sweet Venom, but other than than one (well and Vanish) I’m not familiar with the rest. Look forward to hearing what you think of them.

  4. Wasn’t too stoked when I read Vanish…but Sweet Venom I’m looking forward to reading too. Glad you got it. What’s not to like about Medusa?
