In My Mailbox #1

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Although I have read lots of In My Mailbox posts in the past, this is my first time participating. So, here goes!

From the library:

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

(I requested this book a couple of weeks ago, and when I picked it up this weekend I was quite excited to see that I am the first borrower! Small things.)


Twin Spirit (Domino Galaxy #1) by Matthew Thompson

(I am excited to read this book in particular, because I know the author, and read an early draft of the book a couple of years ago.)


A Storm of Swords Part 2: Blood and Gold by George R. R. Martin

(I borrowed this book from my brother, who warns me - once again - to not get too attached to anyone. I made that mistake with the first book...)

These books have joined the others in my to read / currently reading pile. I am also dipping in and out of Mark Yarm's Everybody Loves Our Town: A History of Grunge. It is raining this weekend, and I plan to spend most of it with my head stuck in a book!


  1. Like your collection of books. Hope you would enjoy them.

  6. Awesome books this week! And I hop you love Cinder, I thought it was such a unique, fresh take on a classic story-- futuristic cyborgs in a dystopian China?! Um hello, awesomeness! Haha, and that's cool you are the FIRST one to check it out of the library, I am a librarian and whenever something new comes in for YA I always feel pretty darn special to be the first to snatch it up! ;)

  10. Cinder was so, so, so good -- such a unique spin on a classic story! I hope you like it!

    And I totally agree with how awesome it is to be the first one to borrow a book from the library; I always try to put the newest releases on hold as soon as the library orders them so that I get to read a brand-new copy =)
