In My Mailbox (April 23rd, 2011)

In My Mailbox is a meme started by The Story Siren with the intent to have everyone share their new books!  This week I actually got some discounted books with the most expensive one only costing me $3.00 and the cheapest one was an amazing $0.50.  A few were children's picture books, so I won't mention them, but here are the other two...

The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen was such a good deal and it was written by the author of Garden Spells for whoever read that one!  I love the concept and the cover and of course the wonderful price!  My only complaint is the ugly red marker dot on the pages.  Why must stores do this to my precious book?  *Sigh*  Oh well, for that price I guess they can do whatever they want to the book haha.  Read the synopsis from Goodreads here
Shopaholic and Baby, by Sophie Kinsella was the same low price as The Sugar Queen and since I've got babies on the brain, it looked like a good choice for me.  I've never read anything by Sophie Kinsella, but I keep meaning to, because she certainly has a lot of books out there, so there must be a good reason why!  Now I'll definitely have my chance and even though this is technically the 5th book in the series, they all seem to stand alone and have their own self-contained stories with just the same characters and such, so hopefully I'll be able to get right into it.  :)

I haven't been buying many books lately, because I've been spending a lot of money on home improvement stuff this month.  Thankfully I have a huge pile of TBR books waiting to be read.  I'm finishing up Spells, by Aprilynne Pike so look forward to that review soon if you are interested in fantasies and paranormal.  :)


  1. Hey! I absolutely LOVE Sophie Kinsella, I've read everything written by her under "other" name, Madeline Wickham, also.

  2. Good to know, it gives me hope that this will be a good read! :)

  3. The book by Sophie is actually part of a series. I didn't care for the first three books in the series so I never continued on. I hope you like it thought.

  4. Yeah, it's the 5th one, but I specifically chose it since there's the baby element and it was super-cheap! Hopefully I can get into it though. :)

  5. I love Sarah Addison Allen! I just grabbed her newest from the library and I can't wait to start it! Enjoy your books!

  6. .50 cents?! Really! That's amazing! Hope you enjoy your books!

    Here's my IMM

    Happy Easter! (if you're celebrating, Have a GREAT day either way!)
