In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to spotlight what books we've bought, borrowed or won for the week.

My Borders closed many months ago and I bought A LOT. I thought I was done but then I went on vacation this past week and took a trip to the local mall and behold.....there was a Borders closing! It was the final few days so I didn't expect to find much but there was quite a bit left....all at 70-90% off.

Here's the list!

Ann Aguirre & Ava Gray (same author):
Skin Dive
Skin Heat

Gini Koch:
Touched by and Alien
Alien Tango

Sean McGuire:
An Artificial Light
Local Habitation
Late Eclipses

Jesse Peterson:
Eat, Slay, Love

Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter:
Deep Kiss of Winter

Jennifer Estep:

Karen Marie Moning:

Patricia Briggs:

Beth Revis:
Across the Universe

Kat Richardson:

Sherman Alexie:

I WAS finally making some progress and clearing off my shelves.....oh well. Such is the curse of the avid reader.

What did you get this week?


  1. Oh, lucky! I came across a Borders that was closing, but there was barely anything left. I managed to snag the last copy of Red Glove by Holly Black, though. :) I'm going to suggest that you read Across the Universe first, maybe because I'm biased, but that book will surprise you out of your wits. It's simply shocking.

  2. I got Shadowfever in paperback this week too, I re read all my favourite Barrons bits this week!

  3. @My Keeper Shelf. I have Darkefever but I haven't started it yet. I just love the Shadowfever cover.

  4. Great books!! I loved Across the Universe!!! Enjoy!

  5. wow 70-90% off?! It's a shame they are closing but is amazing all the books that people are getting for great prizes.

    Across the Universe it's really good =)

  6. you got a lot of awesome books! i loved the fever series from karen marie moning i am a big barrons fan! also Kresley cole immortal after dark is fab!

  8. Great books this week. So many sound amazing. Happy Reading!

  9. Nice haul! Across the Universe looks great, I have it on my tbr too. Happy reading :).

  10. I know exactly what you mean...I'm going to college in Springfield, MO, but when I went to visit my parents in St. Louis, there was a Borders closing, and, of course...I HAD to go!

    Enjoy all of those books! I'll be keeping an eye out for your reviews!

  13. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE!!! I love that book! Yay for all your awesome Borders goodies. And you thought your Borders journey was over :P

  14. Lots of books! Happy reading this week.

  15. You totally scored on that Borders sale, didn't you?! When I went, all the YA books had been bought out by Half Price Books. NO FAIR. I still have to read Across the Universe. It looks so good and I am loving that cover.

  16. lol Same here! I've been hitting our Waldens/Borders these last couple of weeks and just yesterday I nabbed:
    Beautiful Darkness
    The Loving Dead
    Huck Finn and Zombie Jim
    Queen Victoria Demon Slayer

    My winter reading pile has grown by leaps & bounds ;D

  17. I received Across the Universe a while ago, but I can't find time to read it!:0
    I hope you enjoy all of your new books(:


  18. Sherman Alexie rocks. "Diary" is unusual, but good.

  19. Awesome :D Lots of goodies there.

    I had a great week cos I bought Wither, yay

  20. Across the Universe has been my favourite read of the year so far and I'd love to have a gorgeous hardback copy. Hope you like it as much as I did.

  21. Awesome books! Come check out my IMM

  22. Every time I see something about Across the Universe, my mind says, "Should I?" I'll be interested to know what you think. It's one of those books which never quite makes it to my to-read pile.

    My mailbox meme is:

  23. that is one lovely pile of books :)
