In My Mailbox is a weekly meme from Kristi from The Story Siren where we get to feature books that we have gotten this week.

For review:
  • Tighter by Adele Griffin - thanks to Random House

Bought used/bargain books:
  • Beauty by Robin McKinley
  • Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
  • A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin - so excited to get this! It is BRAND NEW, for only $3!
  • 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson
  • Fairest by Gail Carson Levin

What books did you all get this week?? Link up. And let me know if you have read or are planning to read anything that I got this week. And as always, happy reading!


  1. Great collection! I loved Fairest... that was a really neat book. I like nearly everything of Gail Carson Levine's.

  2. I just finished Tighter and really enjoyed it. 100 Cupboards is a fun read! Enjoy!

  3. Don't know most of them, just Games of thrones and Enchantment. Looks like you're into fairy tales re-telling these days! I'll give it a try someday.
    Enjoy your readings!

  4. Melissa - I fixed it! Thanks for the heads up!

    Madigan - I have only read Ella Enchanted and loved that so I thought of getting this one. It was only a $1!

    Little Miss Becky - I am currently reading Tighter and it is very interesting so far! And 100 Cupboards just sound so magical to me I had to get it. It was also a bargain - a $1.

    Touloulou - Yes, I actually asked on a post for fairy tale re-telling recommendations. I have been wanting to venture out with more genres. I liked Beauty a lot so I'm excited to read the rest.

  5. Oh, nice haul! I absolutely loved Beauty. McKinley is one of my favourite authors ever. I hope you enjoy your books. :)

    Check out what's in my mailbox! :)

  6. I bought Game of Thrones as well(haven't gotten it yet, waiting on the mail) I can't wait to start the series!

  7. I read Fairest years ago and remember loving it! And where did you get Game of Thrones for 3 bucks!? I recently got hooked on the tv series and now I kind of want to read the original book. Nice IMM :)

  8. Oh, you got Enchantment by Orson Scott Card! I loved this book! And I like the sound of Fairest, so need to check that one out. Enjoy!

    Here's my IMM.

  9. I want Tighter, it looks amazing! Happy Reading!

    I'm so envious that you have Tighter! I love Adele Griffin!!!

  17. I love just about anything by Robin McKinley, so I hope you enjoy Beauty! I'm hearing a lot about the Game of Thrones TV show, I'm thinking about reading the books too. Have a great week! :)

    Here's my IMM!

  18. Life After Jane - I enjoyed Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game so I'm excited to read this too. It was recommended to me by a fellow book blogger so I can't wait to dig into it.

    Amber - I liked Beauty a lot so I want to try to read Pegasus now!

    Kristin, MiaandSofia, Katie, Zakiya- Thank you.

    E - I have never heard of Adele Griffin before actually. Shame! Haha. If you could recommend any more of her books let me know. I am liking Tighter currently.

    Chelsey - Beauty is my first book from MicKinley and I really enjoyed it! Oh and I highly recommend you check out the show if you liked LOTR!

  19. nlmars - I did enjoy Beauty! Would you recommend any of her books?

    Jacinda - Me too. I absolutely am enjoying the tv show!

    Natalie - I got it at a used bookstore. It was featured there and was on display. They usually have brand new books of popular novels. So I was lucky to have found it there!

    Alexia561 - I haven't read it yet so I'm excited to dig into it! I'm glad to know you liked it.

    Kristina, Comacalm - Thank you!

  20. YES! GAME OF THRONES! I think you'll like it. I know the TV show has just made me want to read the whole series all over again. :D


  21. I love finding bargain books, hope you enjoy them :)

  22. Come link up your bargains at BBB! $3 for a new Game of Thrones-- wow, what a deal! I haven't read any Martin but I plan too. I really liked Fairest and all the others I would've nabbed too. Yay, for bargain books!!
