In My Mailbox (22)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren.  This is a great way for bloggers to network and share what books they are reviewing, borrowing, and/or buying.

Wow! I have not done an IMM post since February 12th! I know I have purchased a lot of books since then, but since I stopped keeping up, I will just start anew now.

This week my mailbox includes not only tween and YA reads but also two adult reads that I am anxious to dig into since I love both writers.

Arrived from Amazon:

Alice the Brave , Alice in Lace, Outrageously Alice 

I love the Alice books, and while I read reviews that say by this stage her character has grown stagnant, I think tween readers will eat her up. My goal is to read all of them before the end of this year. Maybe I should make a ALICE CHALLENGE badge for myself. Either way, I'm almost through Alice the Brave and again, I just love her!

Downloaded from Audible

LOVE a great audiobook. I usually get them from the library and listen in the car, but Audible allows me to have them on my iPhone as well, so I listen while I walk/run/walk the dogs.

Purchased from B&N or Costco:

While I enjoy abusing my husband's discount at B&N, I've discovered that Costco has even better deals on their novels. You know what's even better? They've begun to have quite a few awesome YA titles as well.

Renegade Magic (S. Burgis) - looking forward to this sequel

Take a Bow (E. Eulberg) - absolutely love Eulberg's style, and I've already read this; can't wait to write the review

The Dovekeepers (A. Hoffman) - one of my favorite adult contemporary writers

The House of Velvet and Glass (K. Howe)  - cannot wait to dive into this; enjoyed her debut novel

Well, that's it! My first IMM post since February. I will try to be more diligent, especially since the school year is finally winding down, so I will have more time to dig into my mound of reads.

Happy reading to all!
