IMM #9

Happy Sunday Everyone!!

It's time for another IMM for me!! It's already been a month!! Jeez lol, time flies!!

In My Mailbox was originally started by The Story Siren and it's where anyone can participate and let everyone know what they got in books, and other book related things, throughout a given time.  Anyone with a blog can join in, and you can post once a week, once a month, or whenever you choose to.

Remember everyone, this is a MONTHLY IMM, not weekly!!

Alright everyone that's it from me!!

The Romance Bookie :)


  1. Hi Mandy, thanks for stopping by my blog!

    You surely had a great month! Congrats on the signed copies, and your business cards are really beautiful!
    I'm pretty jealous of the great prices of the Janet Evanovich books!
    And that bookstore is spectacular!

    1. The bookstore is definitely really cool! A bit pricey though, I will admit. For a used book store. I paid $4.50 for the pocket sized "Three to get Deadly" by Janet Evanovich, which I thought was a bit steep. :)
      Thanks for stopping by too! :)

  2. Wow! Great Haul! You got a lot of books, and all the YA ones(I don't like adult books)look really good! I really want Babe in Boyland.


  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow you really made out this week! Extremely jealous of the Meg Cabot books! I also received the swag from Miranda Kenneally I cannot wait to read Stealing Parker!

  4. Oh woaaah ! Thats a lot of books and a lot of them are signed! Congrats and happy reading! :D

  5. WOW! You need to check out my post that is going to go up on Friday. TBR pile reduction challenge. LOL! I love your new business cards. Great new pile of books. I'm jealous!!!

  6. OMG amazing haul!I seriously envy you! And your business cards are very cute by the way :)
    Happy reading :)

  7. Wow, you got some great books!! I loved Babe in Boyland! It's really cute!!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my IMM! So many amazing books, can't wait to check out your reviews to see what you thought of them all!

  9. Great mailbox week! I have to admit, I'm kinda jealous over Between the Lines, Babe in Boyland and Dante's Girl. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by my mailbox!

  10. WOW Great haul! And that bookstore is so cool! I'm so jealous! All we have here is boring Barnes & Noble lol
    Thanks for the shout out! I really hope you enjoy the series! It is so good! Babe in Boyland sounds so fun! And signed! Awesome! I've only read the first 3? I think Stephanie Plum books but I have the series up to around book 14. They are fun. One Day sounds so romantic and I also have A Great and Terrible Beauty I still need to read. I have a few Jennifer Weiner books I need to try too! Thanks for stopping by!!!

    1. One Day is a GREAT book! Really gorgeous story! I personally, wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but the book was beautiful! :)

  11. That’s a lot of this books you got! I’m particularly fond of Beautiful Darkness - it made me cry and I’M MALE! Go figure :P Also I still need to get around to the Gemma Doyle trilogy (A Great and Terrible Beauty) but I hope you enjoy it as I know many do.

    Thanks for dropping by my IMM :)

    1. Lol, I need to get my hands on "Beautiful Creatures" and read the one first! The series looks really good! And I read "Rebel Angel" the second book in the GD trilogy, and thought it was pretty good, but that was more than 5 years ago. I'm interested to see if/how my opinion changed on the books... :)

  12. WOW! So jealous! You got so many great reads and some signed too! Love that bookstore! Enjoy all of your books and thanks for stopping by my IMM! :D

  13. Great haul! That bookstore looks so awesome :) Also, Fury looks amazing! I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  14. Wow, what a huge, great haul! I am particularly jealous of the signed Meg Cabot books.

    ALSO! Nice job thrifting, you got A Great And Terrible Beauty at a steal of a price. Same with Beautiful Creatures.

    Happy reading :-D

  15. Great haul this week! Babe in Boyland sounds pretty good. I really need to get caught up in the Pretty Little Liars series. I've read the first 9. I recently read A Great and Terrible Beauty and I loved it.

    I hope you enjoy your books. :)

  16. Nice! Babe in Boyland sounds awesome. I've heard so many good things about the Caster Chronicles but haven't read it yet. I'm thinking of picking it up soon. And Between the Lines sounds really good.

    Hope you enjoy all and thanks for dropping by my
