IMM #3

In My Mailbox is hosted by the beautiful Story Siren.

I couldn't resist.  I told myself that I would stop buying books...just until I've gotten through about half of my TBR pile.  v___v  Fail, Chey.  You.  Fail.  I went into a different Goodwill (the one closer to my house) expecting to find no more than 3 books like last time.  Boy was I wrong.  About 5 minutes and a stack of books killing my arms later, there was an announcement that they were closing for the night so I made my way to the cashier.  Half of these were brand new.  I'm still so excited.  Guess how many I got?  Come on, just guess.

Yeah...13.  I hate buying books at an uneven number but if I kept adding more I was afraid I'd never be able to stop.  Now I kind of regret putting one of them back (It was Beautiful by Amy Reed, if you were wondering) but I hadn't seen any reviews on it and it wasn't on my list like the others.  Sooo...yeah.  But maybe it'll be there when I go back.  *crosses fingers*  Okay, come on already- tell us the books you got!  Okay, okay, hold your horses.  >___> ...What?  Oh like you don't talk to yourself...

Let's get this show on the road.

-The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
-The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks
-Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
-The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty
-Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle Series #2) by Libba Bray
-The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
-Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
-The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
-The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
-The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong
-The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
-Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
-Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty

I don't currently own (nor have I read) Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr or A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, but until I do, I'll have to put Rebel Angels and Ink Exchange at the end of my TBR pile.

Oh!  Before I forget, I have a review coming this week for Haven by Kristi Cook.  Woohoo, first review!


  1. OMG! Your goodwill had the entire Darkest Powers trilogy!?!?! I am sooo jealous! I stalk the goodwill close to me and they don't really have much YA. Did you do a happy dance in the store? I so would have done one for Kelley Armstrong books :). Lucky girl, you got a great stash.

    Oh, BTW I'm a new follower... Here's my IMM! ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

  2. Jen, it seems that this Goodwill had an entire YA section. I was definitely in heaven. I'm sure that now I'll be going back frequently. haha. All of the Darkest Powers books are new, as well. I'm still excited! Thanks for following. ^_^

  3. Looks like you got a great stash of books there! It's my birthday next month so I'm trying to hold off buying books at the moment... TRYING!

  4. Wow! Fantastic books this week! Rebel Angels and the entire set of the Darkest Powers series. That's unbelievable. Can't wait to hear what you think of all of them. Here's what I for this week:
    happy reading!

  5. WOW!! you have e. lockhart and megan mccafferty's books all in one week? that's a lot of awesome. enjoy, you have many hours of reading pleasure ahead of you :)
