In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren as way to spotlight the books we've bought/won or borrowed for the week.

Here's mine:


On clearance at Borders:
Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs (I have to catch up on this series before River Marked comes out!)
13 Bullets by David Wellington - this one is for the DH
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut 
Secrets and Shadows by Shannon Delany:
I won 13 to Life in a charity auction last year and me and the hubby are in the ackowledgments of the sequel - Secrets & Shadows. Very cool!
(1st line, 3rd paragraph )

I grabbed these cute little magnetic bookmarks because one said "cute bones" - in honor of the Cat & Bones release (This Side of the Grave) this week...LOL

The Zero dog War by Keith Melton - I'm reading it now and it's pretty funny so far.


  1. I read Cat's Cradle years ago and loved it! Cute bookmarks.

  2. Great haul! Secrets and Shadows has shipped and I'm going crazy waiting for it to get here! Happy reading!

  3. Cute bookmarks but book pages aren't magnetic so I don't see the point in them! :)
    Oddly enough I received 'Forge' by Laurie Halse Anderson this week and I have no idea why. Didn't win it, didn't send for just appeared in my mailbox. Not that I'm complaining of course.

  4. Oh my gosh, that is so cool you're in the acknowledgments for Secrets and Shadows, I'll have to go to the bookstore and look for you! I went to my Borders clearance sale as well but didn't end up getting anything because the line was literally 70 people deep and I'm too lazy to wait that long:)

  5. I haven't read the 13 to Life books yet! I'm looking forward to be getting my copy though! Cute skeleanimals! :)

    Great mailbox! Have fun reading!

  6. What's happening with all the Borders stores?
    The bookmarks are soooooooo cute!!!!
    Happy reading :)

  7. Cutest bookmarks ever!!! If there was a Borders down where I live, I'd run out there and get them. ;)

    And that is totally surreal about Secrets & Shadows, Karen!

    You're awesome! Now I have to buy to book just to see your name.

  8. Oh wow, how cool that you were thanked in the acknowledgements! Shannon Delany seems so nice from what I know about her on twitter. Happy reading!

  9. That's so awesome that you're in the acknowledgements! 13 to Life has been on my TBR list too long! I hope you enjoy Secrets and Shadows =D
