I’ve been really excited to share what I got this week In My Mailbox (weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren).. went on a bit of a book shopping craze while in NYC (what with the enormity of The Strand bookstore and the going out of business sales at Borders), plus I get home and Chapters/Indigo has a Buy 3, get the 4th free sale going on! Amazing.
J’adore New York by Isabelle Lafleche <– Borrowed from friend at work
True Blood comic #2, 3 & 5 by Alan Ball <– Free, with purchase of True Blood t-shirts at HBO store in NYC (even tho I do already have the hardcover graphic novel) // #3 & 5 are not the same cover, as pictured above. Goodreads didn’t have the actual cover that I got..
Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay <– for read & review from Harper Collins Canada, a strangely accurate selection from Shannon to my interests (ballet, mystery & intrigue, and theatre!)
The Montmartre Investigation by Claude Izner <– bought at The Strand. Honestly, I totally judged this book by the cover initially. I love all things Paris and Moulin Rouge, so this caught my eye!
The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald <– bought at The Strand. I originally saw this mentioned in Entertainment Weekly, I believe. Looked interesting, and saw it on sale.
Love Lies Bleeding: A Novel by Jess McConkey <– bought at The Strand. Synopsis looked interesting, thought I’d check it out.
Divergent by Veronica Roth <– bought at Chapters. I have been wanting to pick this up forever! Finally got around to it, thanks to Buy 3, get 4th free sale!
The Single Girl’s To-Do List by Lindsey Kelk <– bought at Chapters. Heard a lot about this on Twitter from Harper Collins Canada!
Various Positions by Martha Schabas <– bought at Chapters. Heard this was good, and it’s set in Toronto and is about ballet. Fab.
Heist Society by Ally Carter <– bought at Chapters. Saw this at the bookstore and thought the cover & premise looked cute.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver <– bought at Borders. Another book I’ve been wanting to read forever. Heard many great things about it!
Bright Young Things (Bright Young Things #1) by Anna Godbersen <– bought at Borders. I love her Luxe series, so am excited to check out this new one.
Finding Lost: Season 6 by Nikki Stafford <– bought at Borders. An impromptu in-the-checkout purchase. Love the show, would like to see how others explain the final season.
A Spy At Home by Joseph Rinaldo <– for read & review from author. Stay tuned for a giveaway to coincide with review!
Okay, I think I may have gone a little overboard this week. Should’ve saved some of it for next week or else I won’t have anything 😉 (who am I kidding… it’s an addiction, really.)
Well, there’s my In My Mailbox this week. What’s in your’s? Leave your link and I’ll check it out!
P.S. What d’ya think of the new layout? I loved the previous one, but this one is a bit more spacious.. had a hard time letting that other one go tho.. such attachment issues. 😛
