In My Mailbox (23)

Hello, Reader Friends and welcome to this week's In My Mailbox, which is hosted by The Story Siren.  This has been a good book week for me.  I got some things that I bought in the All 4 Alabama Auction:

Divergent, by Veronica Roth - with temporary tattoos!

And a signed copy of Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews

Then Luke and I went to McKays where I traded in a bunch of books for store credit and got:

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity For Women Worldwide

The Reader's Bathroom Reader - a bunch of lists and book trivia and stuff

Becoming Madame Mao by Anchee Min

Interred With Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell

The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf (and then I realized I already have a copy - oops)

A Return to Modesly by Wendy Shalit (read it already and loved it) and Should We Burn Babar by Herbert Kuhl

Dust Tracks On A Road: An Autobiography by Zora Neale Hurston and
Cherry by Mary Karr

We also went by Books-A-Million which is going out of business.  It was the last day of their sale so everything was 20% off of the alredy discounted prices. 

I'm So Happy For You by Lucinda Rosenfeld

Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas

Leviathan and Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

And these came for review this week:

Don't Sing At the Table by Adriana Trigiani (I'll be doing a TLC review next month)


  1. Wow! I can't wait to read your reviews. Some of the books sound so interesting.

  2. So jealous you got Divergent!!!!! I hope you enjoy it and everything else you got :)

    Here's my IMM!

  3. Divergent was one of my favorite books of the year. New follower. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  4. I am curious how you will like I am so happy for you.. I wanted to like it, and tried to like it, but I hated it. :(

  5. Such a great haul!! I'm jealous you got Divergent tattoos! I have no idea what faction I'd choose. I try not to let it keep me up at night.

  6. Some books! I enjoyed The Weight of Silence and Don't Sing at the Table. I've also got a review copy of Nothing. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    Have a great time with these books!

  7. Great haul! Divergent is awesome. I really enjoyed it. Hope you do too! :)

  8. Great books, Divergent is really really good, I can't say that enough :)

    Have a great week,

    PS - Come and check out my IMM if you get a chance!

  9. The Reader's Bathroom Reader looks awesome! I love Mary Karr and Cherry was wonderful.

  10. I agree, and writing is not the only area that Christians need to show originality and true creativity. I'm so tired of seeing copycat bands and artwork and more.
