Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is currently being hosted in November by Mailbox Monday.

Last week week has been busy for me. Had a status change at work and started working on a big project, so reading time was a bit cut (especially when it was a book I didn't end up liking much), and blogging. So, onto the books from the last couple weeks

We All Wore Stars by Theo Coster (from Library Thing's Early Reviewers)


The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Fire by Kristin Cashore
Seizure by Kathy Reichs
Crossed by Ally Condie
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

Not pictured:

From Goodreads First Reads: The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht

For Review:

Five Dances with Death by Austin Briggs (Library Thing Member Giveaways)
Of Moths & Butterflies by V.R. Christensen (Library Thing Member Giveaways)
Catching the Eagle by Karen Charlton
Harald Hardrada by Michael Burr
Of Faith and Fidelity by Evan Ostryzniuk
The Hermetic of Elysium by Annmarie Banks

Tip of the day: When ordering from Barnes and Nobles- make sure your cart is ordered so the in stock stuff are on the top of the list, and preorders in order with the latest released at the bottom. Otherwise your order won't ship until the first preorder in the cart is ready.

I also found this shiny bookmark at the farmer's market this morning:

Ooh, I've heard The Scorpio Races is fabulous. I love your new bookmark!

Jenny Q said...

You found that at the farmer's market?? Awesome. I can't wait for Crossed! I'm first on the list at the library for it. I want to read The Scorpio Races, too. Enjoy your new books!

Holly said...

I don't read much YA but I like the premise for Scorpio Races. That is a great farmer's market find. All the ones around here don't ever sell anything good-its just a big junk collection. Happy reading!

I love the bookmark! I just finished Matched and it was so good. I can't wait to read Crossed.

Great mailbox. Inheritance sounds good.

Cute bookmark! We All Wore Stars sounds heart-wrenching but interesting. Enjoy your new reads!

Wendi's Book Corner said...

Wow - lots of great books came your way last week. Sadly, I haven't read any of them. I love your new bookmark!

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

Great mailbox, Sarah! I can't wait for your thoughts on a number of them.

Mary said...

They all look good. I love winning a goodreads first reads :)

Sarah Williams said...

This woman makes stuff out of semi precious stones too, so her prices on the bookmarks seem like a steal

We've got a few good crafters in the ones around here. There's some glass makers that will make them too, I have them making one as a gift. I'm a sucker for a good harp bookmark.

I keep hearing good things about Scorpio Races, so I'm hoping it lives up to them.
