In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which we share what books we have received in the mail, bought, borrowed or otherwise acquired during the week.

Note: There is no sign-up for this meme at The Story Siren this week!

(Sorry for the blurry picture. We have no daylight these days, and my mobile phone camera is not too happy with dark conditions.)


Won
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White from A Tapestry of Words (Thanks again, Danya!). I was so excited when I won this, because I don't think I have read a single negative review of it. I hope to read it during Christmas break.

Bought
Sapphique by Catherine Fisher. I recently read Incarceron and just had to know what happens next. Another one for Christmas break.

I also bought the lovely new box set of The Lord of the Rings, which I forgot to take a picture of. I already own The Two Towers and The Return of the King in Norwegian, but I wanted all of them in English. I plan to read them in English next year.

Now it's back to the kitchen and my fruit cakes. :)

I think you will enjoy Paranormalcy. I thought it was a fun book to read. I have to put Incarceron on my TBR list. I didn't get to it in 2010. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

I'm looking forward to finding out what you think of Paranormalcy, Hilde. I've read some glowing reviews but I've also read some that thought the book just ok.

Have a wonderful Christmas :)
