In My Mailbox #9

In My Mailbox is a cool meme from The Story Siren.  If you'd like to take part, the details are here.

This week I have three books to show you that I bought with some Christmas money after spending over an hour browsing in Waterstones.  There were just so many books there off my wishlist, it was really hard to choose.




LAMENT by Maggie Stiefvater

Paperback Edition









PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White

Paperback Edition









BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS by Anna Godbersen

Paperback Edition






I have been wanting to get my hands on a copy of Paranormalcy for a long time, but even on Amazon it was a lot more expensive than usual for a paperback.  When I saw it in Waterstones' 3 for 2 sale, I just had to have it!

I also have a lot of books ordered via Amazon.co.uk, but with the post being as it is at the moment in the UK, I have no idea when those are going to turn up.

Well I hope you all enjoyed your holiday break.  Did you manage to get lots of reading time?  I hope you did, and I also wish you all a
  VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Very nice books you have there! You reminded me to put Lament on my wishlist - I put all books I want on there and order some off of it once in a while. Paranormalcy is on it's way to me, too :)

Looks like a great week for you. I'm happy you found such a good deal. Looking forward to hear what you think of Paranormalcy. Its one I'm sitting on the fence on.

As for reading, yup, I've been getting a lot in. We are camping now at the coast. I've finished one book and working on the 2nd for 2011.
