In My Mailbox (22)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme run by The Story Siren which explores the books that have been delivered to our mailbox or doorstep or directly into our hot little hands.

For Review:
The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Anatomy of Wings by Karen Foxlee
(Random Buzzers Buzz Bucks)
 Phantom Universe by Laura Kreitzer
Used but In a Good Way:
 Beginner's Love by Norma Klein

I had another great week for books. I got the much anticipated Delirium and now I can find out what has brought so many bloggers to tears. I haven't started reading it yet but it is nearing the top of my list. 

A funny thing happened on Thursday. Several people emailed me and IM'd me about a used book sale that was going on in town. I didn't plan to go, but after the third invitation (from my aunt who I rarely get to spend time with) I decided to go, just to check out what they were offering. Let me just say, they were offering a lot! I could have left with arm-loads (my aunt did), but I'm working on the impulse buying (and the hoarding) and I almost made it out of there without any books at all. But (because there is always a but) when I saw Beginner's Love by Norma Klein I didn't want to pass it over. I'd remembered reading Jennifer O'Connell's post at YA Outside the Lines and how these books shaped O'Connell as a reader and a writer and I just couldn't pass it up. The book was only fifty cents so I don't feel guilty about it at all.

I can't wait to see what everyone else got in their mailbox this week. Happy reading!
