In My Mailbox {61}

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

Got 2 for review and a ton of great stuff at the local library book sale!!! I love those. It never ceases to amaze me that the books I get are all withdrawn library book, but once you take the plastic cover off, they look brand new like no one's ever even cracked them open!

For Review:
The Time Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
I've heard mixed reviews for this one, but as a vintage dress collector, I am absolutely in love with the beautiful illustrations of vintage ensembles inside. I hope I love the story as well!!

Supernaturally by Kiersten White (!!!)
And here we have my happy dance book of the week! SO excited to get this one, loved, loved, loved the first book!!

Library Books Sale:
Fire by Kristin Cashore
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
Billie Standish Was Here by Nancy Crocker
Library sale books, continued...

And library sale books, continued some more!
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
One Trick Pony by Daniella Brodsky
At the Sign of the Sugar Plum by Mary Hooper
The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding
The Dark Flight Down by Marcus Sedgwick
The Silver Child by Cliff McNish
Seredipity Market by Penny Blubaugh

Ok so now I have two question for everyone!! :)
~Aside from Audrey, Wait, Silver Phoenix, and Fire (all of which I'm super excited to have found for a $1!) , I haven't heard of many of these wonderful goodies I found at the book sale. I picked them up because, by the description on the jacket flap, they all sounded really great! Have you read any of them? Recommend them? I wanna know!

~I get so many books at library book sales for such a great deal (I paid $9 bucks for this whole haul), and I'll love to share them once I've read them. They are literally like new, including the covers, except for a discard stamp and barcode right on the first blank cover page. So my second question is this---would you want to see these in a giveaway? Or find them acceptable in a trade? I would disclose that they were ex-library books, of course!

Hope everyone has a great week!

  10. definitely acceptable in a giveaway or trade. the only one i've read is Serendipity market, there's a review on my blog but I didn't enjoy it... hopefully you do though! i have heard a lot of positive reviews it just wasn't for me as I found it kinda boring.
