In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a meme that is hosted by The Story Siren. It's a fun way to share what books we got for the week.

I got quite a few books this week! Exciting! 

Fallen From Grace | M.J. Putney (Amazon | Goodreads)
This book is free on Amazon for the kindle. It's a bonus story to The Dark Mirror. It was Allarde's story before he met Victoria. I read it this week and liked it.

Then, I went to Powells (otherwise known as The City of Books), and bought lots of books. I can usually find used books in great condition or great sale priced books there. This was my first trip to the big Powells in downtown Portland. It was huge! A book lovers paradise.

The Poison Eaters | Holly Black (Amazon | Goodreads)
Holly Black is going to be in town this month for a signing, so I had to pick up a few of her books! I really like this cover. 

White Cat | Holly Black (Amazon | Goodreads)
I have been wanting this one for a while! Holly coming to town was the perfect excuse to buy it. 

 The Dead Tossed Waves | Carrie Ryan (Amazon | Goodreads)
This is the only book I payed full price for this week. I LOVED the Forest of Hands and Teeth and can't wait to read this one.

This Lullaby | Sarah Dessen (Amazon | Goodreads)
This was on sale and I've heard good things about Sarah Dessen, so I picked this up. It's on sale for super cheap on amazon right now!

The Luxe | Anna Godberson (Amazon | Goodreads)
This is another one that I've heard good things about that I found at a great price and picked up.

Radiance | Alyson Noel (Amazon | Goodreads)
This book is so pretty! I love how the pages have the torn edge look (no idea what that's called).

Then I found a couple books at Borders for only $4 each. Yay! 

Hush, Hush | Rebecca Fitzpatrick (Amazon | Goodreads)
I've been wanting to read this one for so long. Yay for $4!

Spells | Aprilynne Pike (Amazon | Goodreads)
She's coming in June, so I need a book for her to sign! Wings (the first book) is actually free for the kindle right now (I still need to read it). I actually like the other cover a lot better, but I haven't seen it anywhere.

Oh! and I got a super cute kids book to review from NetGalley:

I Am Tama, Lucky Cat | Wendy Henrichs (Amazon | Goodreads
Anyone on NetGalley can download and review this one. It's really cute! I'll review it later.

  14. This Lullaby is a good book. Dexter is one of my favorite characters but I think that Remy was too stubborn. Remy does not believe in love and I can see why she doesn't. I still think that she should let everything go the way it should insted of ending the relationship after a while though. Remy's mom keeps getting divorced and then remarried and that's why I think Remy doesn't believe in love. In this book Remy's mom get remarried for the fifth time. Before her mom gets married Remy meets a boy named Dexter. Dexter instantly believes that they are meant to be together but Remy can't stand him. Remy finally falls for Dexter and they are together for a while.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! Yay! :)
