Shoved Through My Mailslot #5

Shoved Through My Mailslot is a bi-weekly meme here at a Book Lover's Ramblings, it's purpose is to showcase all the books (or bookish items) I got in the mail or bought over a two week period.

Last week: Mail
I entered in a contest Zoraida Córdova had awhile ago, but she decided to postpone it until she was less busy, so she sent everyone who had already entered a book. I selected Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs, because I've been wanting to read it since it came out, but have been waiting for the paperback, as it wasn't high on my want list.

Last week: Bought
I honestly don't remember when I got Changeling, but I bought it Walmart because it just came out and I wanted to read it.

I picked up The Magnolia League at Barnes & Noble Tuesday. I was in there for about an hour, just staring at different books, trying to decide which one to bring home. Finally, I chose The Magnolia League because that what I originally went for.

I went to my local second-hand bookstore Tuesday and got Princess Academy by Shannon Hale, Pretty Little Devils by Nancy Holder, The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges, Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, Frostbite by Richelle Mead, Secret Society Girl by Diana Peterfreund, and Under the Rose by Diana Peterfreund. I'm especially excited about finding Princess Academy and Frostbite. PA because I had the original cover paperback when I was younger, and it got lost when I moved. I loved it, and have been wanting a replacement ever since Ms. Hale announced a sequel. The Frostbite I bought today is the with the old cover, which I've been wanting to collect ever since I found Vampire Kisses books 2&3 with their original covers.

I was at Michael's Craft Store when I found this journal on clearance. I just absolutely love Paris and the Eiffel Tower, so I had to get it.

I found Huntress in paperback at Barnes & Nobles a couple days before it's release, so I had to get it.

On Sunday I went to B&N again, and bought Ill Wind. I've wanted to read the Weather Warden books ever since I read the WW short story that was in the Chicks Kick Butt anthology.

This week: Mail
Nothing in the mail.

This week: Bought
I went to the Fierce Reads event in Lansing on Friday (recap will be up soon), and got Shadow and Bone and Struck. I got them as well as my copy of Of Poseidon signed, but I'll show the signatures in my next 'Signed My Heart' post.

I went to B&N on Saturday, and picked up For Darkness Shows the Stars. I've been waiting for this for awhile, and finally it came out.

I had a pretty big book haul these past two weeks, gained 16 books.
What did you get shoved through your mailslot in the past two weeks?


  1. These are awesome books! I had the chance to read Changeling and I have to say, Philippa Gregory never ceases to amaze me. I hope you'll enjoy her book as well. :)
