Once again it's time for an 'In My Mailbox'. In My Mailbox is a book blogging Internet meme started by Kristi over at The Story Siren. In My Mailbox is a meme where you talk about books you receive in your mailbox, giveaways, books you bought at stores, borrowed from the library and etc!
Now that summer's officially over and autumn is breezing in I wanted to do a summer haul of all of the books I got over the summer. Since I hadn't blogged over the summer the books accumulated to a great big pile and now take up a couple of shelves on my bookshelf. However, a few of the books I did get over the summer ended up being donated to the library or given to friends and family so they won't be showing up in this haul. (But their reviews will be posted up very soon!)
So without further ado, here are the books I got over the summer;
It may be a bit hard to see all of the titles because this was the closest I could get to include all of the books in the picture.
(In order from top to bottom, starting from the left)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
For years I was dying to see the movies and while at Target one day I stumbled across this gem and decided I'd give the book series a shot since the Hobbit will be coming out to theaters on my birthday this year!
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan
I've been dying to read this book series for the longest time and my sister got it and let me borrow it (thanks sis!)
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
I wanted to read this book after reading Elodie's review of it on her blog! :)
Magic of the Moonlight (Full Moon, #2) by Ellen Schrieber
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter
Something Wiccan This Way Comes (Rhiannon Godfrey, #2) by Traci E. Hall
Her Wiccan Wiccan Ways (Rhiannon Godfrey, #1) by Traci E. Hall
Daughters of the Moon by Lynne Ewing
Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2) by Aimee Carter
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Fated by Alyson Noel
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (#2) by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (#1) by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (#7) by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (#6) by J.K. Rowling
I had the last two Harry Potter books already and only read the sixth one and half of the seventh and never finished it. I've always loved Harry Potter but have only read a few of the books that I borrowed from the library, but about a month ago I felt the urge to reread the series and relive the magic of my favorite book series EVER. Hopefully that will happen next month in time for Halloween! :)
That's the book haul for what's in my mailbox. There were a lot of other books I had gotten that didn't get the chance to show up in this haul but I did get the chance to read them and the reviews will be up soon!
HAPPY READING EVERYONE! :)
