In My Mailbox- out of control (26)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It gives people a chance to show what they are excited about receiving.

This week is actual 2 weeks in one and it is a little out of control.  Not only does Chapters have it's Buy 3, Get the 4th Free, I also had a lot of books come in from the library that I put on hold.  Anyhow, here it goes:

Library Stash:
I have heard nothing but good things about this one

I loved all her other novels so I am sure I'll love this one.

I love Sex and The City so I'm hoping I'll like this one

Another Dessen audiobook for the car- this will be the third.

I saw the movie and I'm curious to see how true it stayed to the book.

I loved The Memory Keeper's Daughter so I hope this one is just as good.

I saw this on someone else's IMM and thought I'd give it a try.

This one just sounded amazing.

Another one that I got b/c of someone else's IMM

I love Top Model so I thought I'd see what this is all about.

I either love or hate Nicholas Sparks' books so I'm curious about this one.

I just finished The DUFF and I really enjoyed it so I want to read more by Kody Keplinger.

This is Hopkins' first adult  novel and I really enjoy her YA stuff.

This is a book club pick that I can't wait to read!

This was on the bestsellers list for a while.

They talked about this book in Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress and I wanted to read it for myself.

YAY!!! I have been waiting to find out what happens for far too long!

This is for an author signing I'm going to in April.

Again, another IMM find.

It's a classic and I figured I should read it.

Another book for an author signing this week. I've already read it and while I detest the cover, the book is fantastic!
The next bunch of books, I got for free with some Bonus Bucks that I get for doing Scholastic's Book Orders in my classroom:

It's the Maze Runner- enough said.

I got the whole Percy Jackson boxed set.

 Well if you made it to the end kudos to you.  This has been a slightly out of control week for me and my husband may have given me a look on more than one occasion when he saw me coming into to the house with more books.  I can't wait to see what you got in your mailboxes.

Happy Reading!


  1. So many amazing books! I can't wait to see what you think of the Percy Jackson series, it's one of my all time favorites!

    My IMM

    Short and Sweet Reviews

  4. I have heard lots about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I loved Pandemonium and can't wait to see what you think.

    I have also heard good things about All These Things I've Done. Enjoy!

    1. I will let you know what I think of Pandemonium :) I can't wait to discuss since you wouldn't give me any clues :P

  5. Funny how we both dislike that cover, but I'm glad you liked Charles de Lint's book. I'm adding it to my wishlist.


    1. Ya it was a great book but as I said I hate that cover. I don't know why some YA covers have to be so cheese bag

  6. What Happened to Goodbye was really good...and I have heard really MIXED but always STRONG reactions to Modelland. I hope you enjoy it!

    1. A jam packed mailbox, enjoy! your reads.

  7. Oooh! Looks like you got some great books this week! I see some I need to add to my to read list!

  8. I would like to read The Carries Diaries, but will probably see the movie first.

    Enjoy all your new books!

  9. Wow, this should keep you busy for a few days or months. Lol, enjoy all your new reads.

  10. Wow that's a lot of books-and some great looking ones in there too. :) I just started delving into YA and want to check out the James Dashner books. Loved The Stand, Hugo Cabret, and the 400 pgs of Count of Monte Cristo I did manage to read before having to return it to the library. Happy reading!

  11. Wow, amazing mailbox list! I loved The Count of Monte Cristo!

  12. Woah, that's a large IMM! I have All These Things I've Done and How to Save a Life sitting on my shelves waiting to be read...must get to that! Also, I have heard great things about the Percy Jackson series but have yet to read them. Enjoy your books! :)

  13. Wow, you had a great week in books! My daughter read the Hugo book first, then saw the movie and she loved them both. Happy reading!
