I will participate in In My Mailbox this week since it may be the last one for awhile that The Story Siren is hosting due to her probably having her baby soon! I got to meet Kristi at BEA 2012 last year very briefly, and so wish her happiness with this new part in her life! Anyway, my post probably matched the title “Stacking the Shelves” better this week, because these books didn’t technically come in my mailbox. My sister brought them back from NYC with her last weekend for me to borrow. She had run out of things to read, and now with us living so far apart, she can’t count on just coming over to my house to raid my shelves. So a couple times I’d get a call from her while she was shopping in Barnes and Noble for some ideas of books. I’m happy to say that she was pretty happy with my suggestions, and that a couple of them were books I’ve been wanting to read, so now I get to reap the benefits and borrow her books for a change! She’s also decided she needs to start shopping more at The Strand, so she can get some good deals on books, not always have to pay full price. Anyway, I only have 3 books to share this week, so let’s get on with it.
First is Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham. I’ve wanted to read this for awhile since my friend Charlotte at Charlotte’s Web of Books told me how funny it was. My sister bought it based on me telling her this, and she said it was a quick but good read.
And the other book she brought for me is one I’ve also heard good things about, plus it is going to be coming out as a movie later this year, Austenland by Shannon Hale.
I also found a free pdf download of As They Slip Away, an Across the Universe novella by Beth Revis. So that was exciting!
Only 3 books, but as I’m still way behind, and will be behind on my TBR pile forever, it’s not like I’m hurting for books. I’ve requested a few from Netgalley that I’m still waiting to hear back on. And then there are some that I’m downloading and having issues getting them to show up on my Nook. I can read them on my laptop, but I don’t want to, I want them on my Nook.
