In My Mailbox

This week's In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Ok, so last night over dinner my dad informed me that he was going to put my on a budget, which means easing up on buying books. Before the budget begins I convinced him to let me have one last shopping trip to the bookstore. He sat a price limit, and I was more than happy to spend my afternoon at Barnes and Noble. I received a ton of books, but unfortunately it may have to last me a loooong time. Maybe I will actually find some time to write some much needed book reviews. In the meantime, check out my Goodreads account for reviews and books that I have recently read.

  1. Many great books :D Too bad about the budget..

  2. I'm glad you were able to get in one last book shopping trip before the budget limits were put in place. It looks like you managed to get a lot of fantastic books like The Dead Tossed Waves, The Body Finder, and North of Beautiful. I hope you enjoy all your books and that they last you for quite awhile. I hope you've got access to a good library so you can keep getting great books to read.

  3. The Body finder looks good :) Heard good things about Knightley Academy

  4. I remember reading and loving A Northern Light by Donnelly. Unfortunately, her adult trilogy beginning with The Tea Rose did not amuse me.

    Great books!

  5. Wow! you made sure you got a whole load in before the budget clamp down!
