In my mailbox {26}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

Here's what I got this week! Ordered a few from Barnes, found Wintergirls and Carrie Pilby (I'd never heard of this one but the cover is so cute and sounded like a fun story) at Safeway of all places for 25% off, and found The Magicians and Poison Apples (which I had also never heard of but sounded fun) at a second hand store while searching for formals for a Trash the Prom Dress session with my daughter. "Z" came for review this week (thank you, HarperCollins!) Look at the eyes on Siren! They are so eerie in person, but in the photo, it caught the flash in a funny way and she got a little red-eye! I was so excited to get my own copies of Shadow Hills and Linger...I loved them both!!For review:
Z by Michael Thomas Ford

Bought:
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus
Siren by Tricia Rayburn
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner
Poison Apples by Lily Archer

What fun stuff did you get? Do show me!!

  9. Some great books here. Randomly, my copy of The Magicians had a ton of typos - enough that it was really distracting. I hope you got a "fixed" copy.
