In My Mailbox #5

May 1, 2011 at 3:55 pm (In My Mailbox, Meme)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren where bloggers showcase the books they received over the week.

This week, I got a lot of books. I’m kind of surprised at how many I have now. :-/

Library:

Knife by R.J. Anderson; Apparently, this book is called Faery Rebels in the US, which is interesting. I personally prefer the AUS copy of this book. The cover is prettier. And omg, fairies! *flails* I absolutely love fairies.
Find it on: GoodReads / Book Depository / Amazon

Blood Ninja by Nick Lake; So… vampire ninjas. Not sure how I feel about this, but it’s worth a shot.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

The Espressologist by Kristina Springer; I’ve already read this book before, but I loved it so much that I just needed to reread it. Hopefully, I’ll write a gushing review about it. 😀
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

Now and Zen by Linda Gerber; From what I can understand, this book (and the series) are sort of like Anna and the French Kiss in the way that there’s a foreign exchange student and stuff happens and she learns about the new culture. Now, I’ve always wished I could have been a foreign exchange student, or even just gone on holiday to different places, so these kind of books are my guilty pleasure. Hopefully, this one will be good.

A Taste of True Blood edited by Leah Wilson; Another one of my guilty pleasures is True Blood, and with the release of the 11th Sookie Stackhouse book, I decided to get this out.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

The Bride’s Farewell by Meg Rosoff; This looks like a nice fantasy. I’ve been seeing it around a lot lately, so I was really tempted to buy it all the time.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

The Doll’s House by Neil Gaiman; I read and loved the first volume of this series, Preludes and Nocturnes, and was so excited to get my hands on this installment.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

Sin City: The Hard Goodbye by Frank Millier; I’ve been on a graphic novel binge for the last couple of weeks, and I just love the movie, so I decided to check this out.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan; Can I just have a moment to squeal for this books’ release and the fact that I got a copy of it from the library so quickly? *squeal* I’m so excited for this book, especially after that horrible cliffhanger at the end of Dead-Tossed Waves, and those loose plot-holes that need to be filled in.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

Bought:

I got all of these books off of The Book Depository

Paper Towns by John Green; I’ve been watching far too many VlogBrothers videos lately, so I decided that I need some of John Green’s books.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan; I’d read a few of David Levithan’s collaborative works and enjoyed them (with the exception of Naomi & Eli’s No Kiss List, which I dropped after 30-odd pages), and as I said above, I think I need some of John Green’s books.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

–  Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman; So, I’d been told by everyone that I should really read this book. I’d never read any of Pratchett’s works before (with the vast amount of books in the Discworld series, I’m a bit intimidated) but I love Neil Gaiman so so so much. American Gods is one of my favourite books ever.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty; I’ve gotten rather addicted to books on writing, and since I’m planning on doing NaNoWriMo this year (again), I should probably read this handy dandy guide.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon / The official NaNoWriMo merch store (if you get it from the merch store, you can get it autographed, which is pretty fantastic)

Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss; The joke behind this book just gets me every time, and since it’s a writing book (which a lot of people have recommended) I decided to get it.
Find it on: Goodreads / Book Depository / Amazon

So, that’s my haul for the week. Did you guys get anything in your mailbox? Feel free to leave your links in the comments!
