In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that was started by Kristi at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea at Pop Culture Junkie. It features books or book-related things that have been bought, borrowed, won, or received in the mail. Be sure to check out The Story Siren for a list of all the other blogs participating!

This is my First IMM....I have enjoyed this meme on other blogs that I visit, and thought I would give it a go. When I learn a little more about this blogging business, I hope to get a little fancier at it!!

This week, I bought:

The Keepers Tattoo by Gill Arbuthnott

Spells by Aprilynne Pike

Also, I have read Crossroads by Mary Ting...if you haven't read it, you definately should!! Its a great book....and I have a review that's going to be posted on Page Turners soon...anyway, I feel that I have become great friends with her, by emailing back and forth about how I loved the book, and she sent me this beautuful necklace she made that symbolizes the cover of the book...Thank you MARY!!

Well, not all a bad week for my first always makes me happy to find a book in my mailbox!!


  1. I'm glad you decided to join IMM this week, but be prepared because it is ridiculously addicting. There are so many books I want now, plus the fact that I feel like I'm missing out if I'm not joining each week. But still, I'm glad I do it, and it is a lot of fun!

  2. Hi Michele!
