In My Mailbox (3)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. This is my third week participating, and I have really enjoyed visiting other blogs and seeing what others are buying/receiving/checking out to read.  

This week I've acquired four new reads from Barnes & Noble, my favorite place to purchase books. I have had my eye on three of these, so I'm excited to add them to my shelf. Here's what I've bought:

Entwined by Heather Dixon - the cover drew me in to this one; something about it reminded me of the Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray. I have high hopes for this one.
Enclave by Ann Aguire - this one comes recommended by my favorite teen bookseller, Emily. I bought Divergent first because it was highly recommended, and this one seemed okay. Now I've added this to my shelf because I really am a sucker for dystopian lit.
Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz - I love a good witch story. No, I take that back, I worship a good witch story. I especially love witch series, so I am very excited about this one. If you know of other great witchy reads, leave suggestions in my comments below. Thanks!
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Bucholz - because my life would not be complete without Harry Potter. I've had my eye on this book for a while; a long, long while. Every time I go in to B&N and see it I tell my husband, "This would make a great present." To date, I have not received it as a gift, so I took matters into my own hands. And yes, there are real recipes that look yummy! Can't wait to give them a try.

What did you get this week?


  1. Enclave is amazing! So jealous that you got Entwined! I also saw the Witches of East End on goodreads, but haven't checked it out yet. I can't wait to hear what you think of these! And thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower!

  2. I really enjoyed Enclave and it was a big hit with my teen book club. I was actually surprised that some of the girls liked it as much as they did! I'm looking forward to your thoughts :)

  9. I have Entwined as well! Even if I end up hating the book (I really hope I don't) I can stare at that cover in admiration. Seriously, possibly THE prettiest cover I've ever seen.

    I've heard such good things about Enclave! I'll have to try it out - I love dystopian :)


I would love to hear from you
