In My Mailbox (65)

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.

Gifted:

The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire LeGrand
I haven't read any MG in a while and I've heard Cavendish has the same feel as a Lemony Snicket novel. Can't wait to start this!

Mastiff by Tamora Pierce
This takes places 3 years after Bloodhound and I am *so* excited to read this! (I'm a little sad that this is the last book in the Beka Cooper trilogy, though.)

Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink
I don't know much about this one, but I'm willing to give it a try!

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
After waiting (and waiting and waiting) for this to be available at the library (it never was), I'm so glad to have my own copy! 

Peter Pan Litograph
It's the ENTIRE BOOK on a POSTER and it's gorgeous!!!

The John Green Box Set (!)
Isn't it amazing?? It's not the signed one, but it's still absolutely incredible. Looking for Alaska doesn't have the candle, An Abundance of Katherines has the new cover in hardcover, and the box is just perfect. (My box set is also unique- I got the wrong Paper Towns and it's the only one that has blue text on the spine instead of silver, like the rest of the collection, which is actually kind of cool.)

In the Mail:
Belles by Jen Calonita
Won from Reading Teen- thank you! I loved Jen Calonita's Secrets of my Hollywood Life, so I have high hope for Belles.

  1. Caddie Woodlawn was one of my most beloved books when I was a kid! Probably not sophisticated enough for today's pre-teens but I'd read it again in a heartbeat!

    1. J'aime TFIOS! J'espère que tu aime le livre aussi!

      Oui, c'est possible, mais la personne qui a acheté la boite a acheté from Barnes and Noble, pas Amazon. Voila la boite avec les livres dédicacés: John Green Box Set

  4. I got an Alice In Wonderland poster from a different site but I am SUPER jealous of your Peter Pan one. I might have to order myself one. So stinking awesome!

    I love the John Green box set. It looks amazing and I bet it is super fun on the bookshelf. Happy reading!

    1. The litographs are so cool, and there's so many to choose from! When I found the website, I completely nerded out. It's definitely worth it to get one- it's even printed on thick, mat paper (not sure how to describe it) that won't rip easily.

  5. I read Let it Snow a couple weeks ago to get me in the holiday spirit, it's super cute and funny! I loved the first 2 stories the most. AND i love your poster! AND John Green rules!
