In My Mailbox (008)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren and it explores the contents of my mailbox or shopping bag on a weekly basis. Here's what I acquired over the past two weeks:

These books are all from the library. One book I've had on hold for quite sometime and the other two were "spur-of-the-moment" picks! They are on my "TBR" list, but didn't have them too high. Since a lot of the 2010 Debut Author books are taking forever to be ready at the library I decided to get them anyways. Here they are:

Numbers by: Rachel Ward
Insatiable by: Meg Cabot
How to Say Goodbye in Robot by: Natalie Standiford


I have been looking forward to Insatiable for quite sometime! I didn't think it'd be ready today, but I'm glad it is. I've only read one book by Meg Cabot, but I can't wait to read more. I seem to mainly be interested in her Adult books, but I may maneuver over to her YA books. I've heard good things about them! P.S. How amazing is that cover?

I've read that people think How to Say Goodbye in Robot is a sad but sweet book. I've been reading a lot of "love stories....but I guess this is a different kind of love story.
I think I'll be reading this one next.

Numbers hasn't gotten the highest reviews, but the books sounds really good. And I don't completely trust what other people rate anyways. This girl can look in your eyes and see the day you will die. But I'm not so sure I'd like to have that "talent" or know anyone with it. I don't know, this may be the next one I read!
And I love how creepy that cover is!


I also checked out the movie "The Children's Hour". I've seen some of it, but every time it's on I never catch it at the beginning. I love older movies!! :)

So, that's all I've acquired this week. What have you gotten? Unfortunately I didn't get any new 2010 Debut Author books, but I'm happy with what I did get.
And have you read any of these books?!


  1. I think Numbers sounds awesome, so the only way I could see it being bad is if it's poorly executed.

  2. Or poorly written. Or both. Lol


Show a bit of love and let me know what you think! *HUGS* ^_^~
