In My Mailbox {11}

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It features books acquired over the past week no matter the source (bookstore, publisher, friend, library, etc.)

So, I kind of went to Borders again. I probably shouldn't be spending all this money on books lately, but who can resist such prices? Now my bookshelves shall be happy for a while, at least. I managed only one book from the library this week since I've been trying to dwindle my TBR. It can be kind of hard not to pick at least something up when I dust the shelves every week at my library, though. 

And look at the pretties!


Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma This one does sound good, but I'd be lying if I said the cover wasn't what really compelled me to buy it.
Lies by Michael Grant I LOVE these books. I'm so glad to finally own one and I can't wait to find all the others with matching covers!
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce I've heard great things about this one, especially with Sweetly having recently been released. I love fairy-tale retellings so I'm looking forward to it.
Across the Universe by Beth Revis I love worlds with their own made-up history, but yeah, I also bought it for the jacket :P
Wither by Lauren DeStefano This one was beautiful and, really, who can resist lovely cover?

The Suburb Beyond the Stars by M.T. Anderson I've read The Game of Sunken Places and recently won the third book in the series so I figured I should catch up.

That's all for me :] What did you get this week?


  1. I hit up Borders for a final time before it officially closes tomorrow. I would have loved to pick up some of these, especially Wither, but the YA section was completely empty. Of course I've picked up so many books from Borders in the past few weeks it'll be quite a while before I let myself buy anything else. SO Wither will have to wait a while

  2. Lots of great books! It's sad about Borders closing but when I was visiting NYC the other week, I picked up a bunch of great deals! I haven't heard of Lies but it looks really interesting!

    Here's my IMM!

  3. I love Wither! I haven't read Sisters Red in a long time, but I really really like it. ATU is also a good book!

  4. Great haul :)

I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
