In My Mailbox (55)

Sunday, October 21, 2012
IMM is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren to share what books you've bought/borrowed/received in the past week!
As always, my apologies for the terrible photo quality.

Bought:

Five Great Comedies by William Shakespeare
This was only $5 at Barnes and Noble and it includes my two favorite Shakespeare plays (A Midsummer Night's Dream and Twelfth Night)!

 
Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay
The sequel to Juliet Immortal. *So* excited for this one!
(Huh... just realized the whole Shakespeare theme of my first two purchases.)

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Yes, I finally got a copy of Insurgent! I figured I could wait months to take it out from the library, or get my own copy.

In the Mail:
The Tragedy Paper from Elizabeth Laban
Sent for review from publisher. This is described as being similar to Looking for Alaska, Thirteen Reasons Why, and Dead Poets Society... two books and movie that I LOVE. Can't wait to read it! Thank you, Random House!

Gift:

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling (signed!!!!!)
For my birthday, my brother got me tickets to the J.K. Rowling event this past Tuesday so I got to meet my idol! She signed approximately 2000 copies of The Casual Vacancy and was just incredible! I'll have a post up about it this coming Thursday. (:

  4. I've heard Romeo Redeemed was really good. That's an interesting cover of Insurgent. That was a good book...exhausting though.

    Check out my IMM & SP.

  8. Thanks for your comment on my IMM. Oooh, you got the Casual Vacancy! And signed too. That's brilliant. They have it at my library but the reservation list is super long so I probably won't get it for a while unless I buy it.

    I absolutely adored Fire by Kristin Cashore. She's amazing and the other books are looking great too.

  9. Wow. You got to meet JK Rowling. You have the coolest brother ever!!!! Even cooler that he didn't try to embarrass you by wearing a "Team Jacob" t-shirt.

  10. I've had Insurgent for months, I just haven't read it yet since it ends with a huge cliff hanger. Really hope you enjoy all your books! :)
