In My Mailbox #10!!

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!!

So I got once again some totally awesome books!!

This was actually also a super great month in great deals on E-books!

I have this policy where I refuse to spend anything over $2.99 on an ebook, why?  Well, because most of the time if the book is over that than it's between $7.99 and $9.99, and once in a while even up to $12.99!  When that's the case, well, I look up how much the hard copy costs on Barnes And Noble online, and usually it's around $ instead of paying $7.99 or $9.99 for an ecopy that I will never enjoy looking at the cover, I buy the hard copy that gives me the opportunity to add the book also to my beautiful book shelves! :)

Anyway, to this months books!!!

  5. Great books! :D
    The books from the thrift store seem to be in such a good condition. I find it so hard to get the good ones :| And yeah, Meg Cabot books are overflowing here at thrift stores!

    I love Jodi Picoult. Will look for your review of Lone Wolf.. I want to read it!! :D

  6. You have some wonderful books. Under the Never Sky and The Summer I Turned Pretty are two great ones :)

  7. So many good books. How To Be Popular is one Cabot book I haven't read yet, but I do want to. I love Meg Cabot! I haven't read Allie Finkle's Moving Day yet, but I did read The New Girl, and it was adorable.

    Love all the Stephanie Plum books! I've read all of them but number 18!

    Happy reading! :)

  9. I need to not read your blog because now I want to read all these, lol. Lone Wolf was really good (as are all of Jodi's books, plus she's super nice - she's responded to some of my tweets/reviews) and some of the ones you listed I want to read now. My next read is "Becoming Clementine," it's an ARC I got. I have Beautiful Disaster to read as an e-galley too.

    1. Beautiful Disaster is super good!! And I'm sorry!! :) lol

    2. lol. I have like 10-12 NetGalley books to read ... I don't allow myself to go on that site anymore :P.

    3. Yeah I haven't been on the site in a while either haha

  10. I loved Shatter Me and both The Summer I Turned Pretty and What I Didn't Say look amazing! I hope you enjoy all of your books :)
