In My Mailbox 6



"In My Mailbox" is a weekly post hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren about what new books we got in the mail (or library or whatever) this week. I got some great things this week. But first...


Broken Kindle


TRAGEDY! There was an "incident" with my Kindle. Which included me setting it down on my bed and then a large popping/cracking sound happening out of nowhere. It was like spontaneous Kindle combustion. I'm still in mourning. I've had that puppy for a few years—since they were first on The Oprah Show—but will have to buy a new one this week. Dang.



But I did get some nice things from the library this week. I have the Outside In ARC from NetGalley, so I made sure to get Book 1 ASAP:

But, even better! Lots of goodies in my actual mailbox this week:
Thanks to everyone who sent me such fabulous books. Happy Sunday—I'm off now to Borders to hang with Tara from Fiction Folio and do some bloggish things/BEA planning.

  1. Yay! You got The Long Weekend! I can't wait to see everyone's reviews for it!

    You had a pretty much amazing week in books (maybe it's to make up for le Kindle? Just a thought). Enjoy, Anna :)

  2. I literally just finished Bitter Melon. It's awesome, but heartbreaking reading about Frances's mean old mother.

    ALSO INSIDE OUTTTTTTT. I loved that book. Normally Sci Fi is thumbs down for me, but Inside Out is awesome. Can't wait for you to meet Trella and Riley and SHEEPY!
