In My Mailbox - July 26th


In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

My first mailbox post! Woo hoo!
Got some Mooch books, a borrowed book and couldn't resist buying some this week:

From BookMooch:
  • Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Lavine -- I have wanted to read this book for a while now
  • Silver On A Tree by Susan Cooper -- I think I have all the Dark is Rising books now
  • Dragonflight by Anne Mccaffrey -- my first Mccaffrey book to read
  • Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire - if you haven't read anything by Maguire - do it now!
  • The Ghost Belonged to Me by Richard Peck -- one of my favorite youth authors
Borrowed:
  • Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley -- already read this one - my review is right below this post
Bought:
  • Memories of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin -- came across this one in Lost in a Book's Mailbox last week and it sounded so good I got myself one :) A few chapters in and I'm loving it so far
  • Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow -- I can thank The Book Explorer for my purchase of this one :)
  • Hawkes Harbor by S.E. Hinton -- total impulse buy as I was just about to walk out of the book store. I'll let you know how it is as soon as I read it.

  10. I know I'm totally late on this, but Hawkes Harbor is excellent. I love S.E. Hinton. You should check out her other novels, as well.
