In My Mailbox (26)

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.

Rachel offered some translations of her books on Twitter and I was lucky enough to get a copy, Thanks Rachel!

Easy by Kerry Cohen Hoffman
Paperback Swap

This week was filled with an amazing amount of generosity. I'm very appreciative. When I was taking the picture of my books, I thought I made it through the week without purchasing a single book. Yay, go me! Um, nope. I did have an impulse buy, thanks to Ginger at GReads! She was talking up a book on Twitter (should that be capitalized?) and at some point compared the style and the feeling of reading it to The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. Instantly, I was all, Ding, Ding, Ding, SOLD. The book just happens to be:

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (e-books)
Thanks Ginger!
