In My Mailbox #10 - Trying to Show Restraint


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where bloggers and readers can talk about the books and booky things they have received in the last week - paper-books, e-books, library loans, swaps, wins, anything!

I'm trying to be more particular about what I purchase - I've got something like *cough* 855 *cough* books that I own but have never read. That's about 8 years of solid reading if I don't purchase another book in the meantime. So, how did I do? Ermmm...

  1. Knife of Never Letting Go! Definitely my fav dystopian YA book out there, I'm totally crazy about it. The whole trilogy, to be honest.

    And The Statistical Probability was a cute read <3

    1. I've heard so much about the Chaos Walking trilogy - I'm always behind the times!

  2. Jenny Pox sounds really interesting! I really need to get started on the Knife of Never Letting Go trilogy - they've had such good reviews! The Statistical Probability looks super fun, I can't wait to read that one soon!

    Here's my IMM. :)

  3. I grabbed Jenny Pox for free too! I have had it on my kindle for awhile and I am really curious about it. I can't seem to make the time to read it. I hear it is really good actually. I also bought The Burn. It was a dollar and I saw some good reviews. I have also wanted to read The Knife of Never Letting Go forever. I hear a lot of mixed things about it and that just makes me more curious about it. Also really want the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. It just seems cute. Thanks for stopping by My IMM!!!

    1. So many books, so little time! I wish I could read four or five simultaneously!

  4. The Statistical probability of Love at First Sight was so good, it made me "aww" out loud in some parts. It was so sweet with some drama in it too and it was a highly enjoyable romance book. Life is But a Dream looks awesome, the idea sounds interesting and new.
    Happy reading!

  5. So many good ones!!!! I loved Jenny Pox and The Statistical Probability is SO cute/sweet.

    Also I'm HAPPY someone has more books than me. My TBR count is 400-ish...when I last said that on my blog everyone acted like I was insane....no one would speak up to having anywhere close to as many.

    1. I'm lucky that most of them are e-books, so they only haunt me when I open my reader front-page. I can't imagine how much it would stress me out if they were physical books staring at me every day!

  6. Haha! Most of mine are ebooks which makes the evidence much easier to hide. Last night I reached the storage capacity on my Sony Reader. I think I have an addiction ;)

  15. Sounds like you and I have a similarly large number of books that we have yet to read! Jenny Pox being one of them!

    I've heard some good things about "The Knife of Never Letting Go." I haven't read it myself, but it seems to come highly recommended by people whose opinions I trust, and so I hope you really enjoy it!

  16. The Night She Disappeared is super short, but left me completely paranoid for a while after reading. It was a great read.

    Fantastic other books and happy reading!

  19. Ooh, I've never heard of Jenny Pox, that sounds interesting. And I'm totes jealous of Statistical Probability and Eleventh Plague - I MUST get those!

    Girl, you need to stay out of bookstores until you get those 855 (!!!) books read! Lol.

    1. The sad bit is, I haven't set foot in a bookstore (well apart from airports, they so don't count!) for several years now - I have an internet addiction! It makes it far too easy!
