In My Mailbox: Week 1

In My Mailbox is a weekly feature hosted by The Story Siren, where I talk about the books I received during the week either from buying, ARCs, gifts, library, etc...

This is my first week doing this, and I'm just letting you all know.  I buy a lot of books.  It's sort of a bad habit of mine.  Usually, I spend most of my days off of work at the thrift shop, book store, or used book shops.  This past week, I went a little nuts with the buying.  All of the books I received via the thrift shop or Half Price Books.

Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads
Bridget Jones: the Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding  Amazon ♥  Goodreads
Best New Horror: Volume 21 by Various Authors, edited by Stephen Jones  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads

Doctor Who: The King's Dragon by Una McCormack  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads
Julie & Julia by Julie Powell  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads
Matched by Ally Condie  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads
The Devil's Rooming House by M. William Phelps  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella  Amazon  ♥  Goodreads

I'm really excited to read these, especially Matched by Ally Condie, and The Devil's Rooming House by M. William Phelps.  I'm a huge fan of serial killers (not that I would you know, date one or be pen pals with one, or you know, become one.  Just putting this out there because I can only believe some of you are side eyeing me, and slowly backing away from your computer to call the F.B.I.).  and I love books that are dystopian themed.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

  1. Oh great haul I love Sophie Kinsella!

    1. I never really thought I would like Sophia Kinsella, but I read 'Confessions of a Shopaholic', and I was in love. I've been looking for her other books so I can add that to my pile of books I still need to read.

  2. I loved Matched!

    come enter my ALA Midwinter ARC giveaway! lots of prize packs!

    1. I've heard some really good things about 'Matched', and I've been told that if I love 'The Hunger Games', then I'll love this series.

  3. Great set! Yay for Matched. I loved the movie Julie and Julia. I should try the book - I DNFd it once but I might like it more now.
