In My Mailbox (44)

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by The Story Siren & inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. It is a way to feature the books you purchased, traded, borrowed or received for review each week.

  3. Oh my. That is crazy. At least you are going about the new year in a very good way. 🙂

  4. Amy says:

    Hahaha! My mailbox also exploded! 😀 Great times. I got some of the same books as you as well 🙂

  5. Look at all those awesome exploding books! Holla new reads in a new year! I got the Probability of Miracles on audio as well.

    Gosh and look at all those awesome ebooks.

    2012 is going to rock, yo!

  6. Ria says:

    Okay, Let It Snow looks gorgeous and sounds great.
    Happy reading!

  7. reutreads says:

    Amazing mailbox! Stop by later today for mine. Enjoy all your books!

  8. Woah! Loads of great books – Great way to start the year 🙂

  9. bookgoonie says:

    WOW! you are rocking the oboks and audiobooks. Busy, busy girl.

  10. Candice says:

    I want to have a play date with all your books! That is an awesome list and I’m kind of a little jealous of your mailbox!

  11. Oh, I can’t wait to see what you think of Dark Eyes! I am totally looking forward to reading that one. Tons of good ones there.

    I am curious to see what you think of Obsidian, too. I’m on the fence about this one and my library doesn’t have it, so I’m trying to decide whether to pull the trigger and buy it.

  12. What an awesome awesome loot! That’s the best way to start the New Year – with loads and loads and loads and loads of books! Good on you!! 🙂 I haven’t tried audio books yet, so do let me know what the experience is like.

    PS: we’ve reviewed the girl who circumnavigated fairyland over at gatheringbooks. Fats received the review copy and she noted that she loved the book. Mixed reviews though from various people, and I’m pretty intrigued myself. Hope I can read it soon. 🙂

  13. Holy Crap! HUGE MAILBOX ALERT! How awesome! There are so many good books in there. I just finished The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (these long titles! They’re killer to type over and over again!) and it was WONDERFUL. The Probability of Miracles is up next for me as well. It looks so good.

    I need to get on the audiobook bandwagon, too, I think. I’ve tried before but somehow can’t get into them.

    I hope that this mailbox is a good indicator of the best book year ever!! Happy New Year! 🙂
