In My Mailbox #5

Time for another IMM hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren. IMM is to show off books you've bought/stolen/borrowed/begged for/been given/etc.

This is my pretty kitty (once thought to be pure Maine Coon, now looks like a mix between coon/ragdoll awww) Cinderella showing off all of the books that I received since last Sunday. Yesterday was my birthday so of course, I told everyone I wanted books. And books I got. :-) Two of them I've already read.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien (which I'm reading with my 8 year old)

Stardust by Neil Gaiman (which I'm also currently reading, AND it's my favoite movie)

Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater (the bookstore FINALLY got a copy in!)

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (see my review here)

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (read my review here)

Perchance To Dream by Lisa Mantchev

Lots of books! What did you get in your mailbox?

PS. I also got a TON of books for my Kindle Reader on my phone. But they were all free! WOot.


  1. I remember reading Coraline in 5th grade but I don't remember finishing it so I'm looking forward to your thoughts. Glad you enjoyed Speak! I love Laurie Halse Anderson and was fortunate enough to meet her. Great IMM and Happy Reading :D

  2. I LOVE Stardust too :) I saw it in theaters, and then I had to go and read the book. It is now my favorite Gaiman book :)

  3. I read and loved Stardust as well. Neil has a way with such simple prose. I could hug the poor dear!
