In My Mailbox 5

I got a LITTLE bit of loot from the library this week—enough for a "In My Mailbox" post, a weekly event of sorts hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren about what new books came in the mail (or library or whatever) this week. I was in a big rush though, so I didn't have time to shop the shelves.


Very excited to get How to Ruin My Teenage Life, the sequel to How to Ruin My Summer Vacation. (See my review here!) I must know what happens with Avi!

Photobucket SIGNIFICANTLY less fun news, my new book club pick is in. That's it above. You guys, do you see why I seem so reluctant when I talk about book club in my blog header? Love them. Love going and talking and drinking the wine. But this is JUST not my type of book. How am I going to get myself to read it? Ack.

Happy Sunday, guys. I've got the Crock-Pot going and my Devin Hester jersey on...GO BEARS!

  1. A rogue sociologist, eh? I never did like my Sociology class in school. Hopefully it doesn't turn out to be a boring read for you, though!

  2. How to Ruin my Teenage Life sounds soo cute, and I really need to read another Simone Elkeles books soon. I totally agree with you on your book club pick, so sorry. I don't know how I would be able to read that book if I had to. =/

  3. I still need to read How To Ruin My Summer Vacation! And your book club pick...I can't stop laughing! I would not be able to read that! But I do understand loving the wine part of book club!

  4. I havent heard of How to Ruin My Summer Vacation! It sounds like a fun read. :)Enjoy the two books you got there.

  5. I haven't heard of either of those books! I hope you really enjoy the first one, and give the book club one a try - it may surprise you (just maybe!)
    Happy Reading,
    Check out my IMM post

  6. I haven't heard of Simone Elkeles but I love the cover and title of that book, so she may be an author I want to check out.

    I always wanted to join a book club...sounds so much fun, but yeah you're right. There's no way I could force myself through a book I'm not very interested in!

    Here's what's in my mailbox this week!

  7. I hadn't heard of these books before but they both seem great !! Enjoy ;)

  8. The first sounds fun! The second... not so much, no.

    Go Bears, too! Making jalapeño popper dip for the party we're heading to, I'm wearing my Blue Jackets shirt because it is at least navy. All my football shirts are black and orange.

  9. Book Clubs sound like a lot of fun, but I wouldn't want to read that it a biography?That's not my genre...

  10. I love the Ruin seiries! : )

    ... I feel smarter just by looking at that second book :P lol

  11. Haha good luck with that book club book. I'm in a teen book club at my Library and we're voting on books to read during 2011 tomorrow! There are always a few books that end up on the list that I'm not to hip on. Sometimes I read them and sometimes I don't. hehe. :P

  12. Oh boy...I am so sorry about book club. We usually complain when people start talking about their picks that we don't like. :) Haha.

  13. Wow. I would not be excited to read your book club pick either. See this is why I don't join book clubs.. I need to read at my own pace, at my own choosing lol. Good luck with that!

  14. Gang Leader for a Day --'s The Wire meets Harvard University. That doesn't sound EXCITING?

    Yeah, boo to that.

    We're reading SOLD by Patricia McCormick for my book club. YA. OH YEAH. =)

  15. Awesome Haul! Thank you for sharing, I look forward to your reviews!
