Book Haul: In My Mailbox #19

in my mailbox

For the week of March 4 – March 10, 2012

    Some of those look great. I’ve been getting so many books lately I just don’t know when I will have time to read them…we really need a 30 hour day 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for stopping by at my mailbox, Giselle! Seems like you got tons of awesome books, too. I really love those bookmarks (I don’t know why, but I really have a thing for bookmarks – they’re always so pretty and so very, very useful (: )! And I have to say I’m a BIT jealous, because you’ve got both Illuminate and Starters and these books are on my wishlist, too. They both sound extremly amazing and I can’t wait to get both of them as soon as possible.

    Hope you’re going to have an awesome week 🙂

    I’m sounding a lot like an owl with a speech impediment over here. *lol*

    –> Oohhh The Selection!
    –>Ooo, Fated looks really cool.
    –> Oohh, I haven’t heard of Insatiable, but I’ll check it out.

    Oh and I want to read starters so, so badly. I always judge books by their cover before I read, lol!

    Great Haul!

    Thanks for visiting my IMM & Happy Reading!

    Oh, I just LOVE the cover of Illuminate! The hefty size of the book is a bit daunting (It’s like 500+ pages I think?) but it looks interesting!

    Hmm interested to hear what you think of The Selection.. have heard mixed reviews on that one.

    Hope you enjoy Embrace! 😛 and thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Ahhh! Starters!!! It’s so amazing! I hope you enjoy it 😀
    I love checking out the various bargain tables at my local Chapters, I can normally get some decent deals. How can you not buy books all the time with their amazing deals?

    I also love Rick Riordan, but haven’t gotten a chance to read his Heroes of Olympus or the Kane Chronicles series yet.

    Oh my gosh, you are too adorable. I cannot stop saying that. <3.

    I need to get a copy of Starters, because I’ve heard lots of good things about it and a really good friend of mine was lucky enough to snag an ARC of it. So, I’m kind of excited about and you just made me even more. Iluminate and The Girl of Fire and Thorns is soooo good. You’re going to really enjoy them both. I’ve still got to read my ARC of The Selection, which I was incredibly psyched when I got it back before Christmas. lol. I even took a picture of it underneath the Christmas tree, I’m such a geek like that. hahaha! 😀

    You got some great fines, I’m always skimming the bargain table and YA tables/section of my local Books-A-Million for great deals and I’m lucky enough to find them. Have you decide which two three books you want? 🙂
