In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Today (July 31) is my husband's birthday. Happy birthday!

Bought

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with books. My husband loves thrillers (Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, etc) and fantasy (Fabelhaven series, Ranger's Apprentice). I picked out a Daniel Silva book and two YA thrillers. I want to read the YA books; I've heard good things about them.


Silverfin (Young Bond) by Charlie Higson
Maximum Ride by James Patterson
The Defector by Daniel Silva

Library Stash


Wings by Aprilynne Pike (almost done; very good)
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (Wahoo!!!)
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

The Ghost And The Goth by Stacey Kade

CD Of The Week
Neon Bible by Arcade Fire

  3. Fantastic books you have there!
    Lucky you for having a library near you that has an updated selection of YA books - libraries here in my country are kind of... err.. outdated..

    Happy reading!

  11. Nice books this week! I haven't heard of those YA thrillers, but I've heard of Maximum Ride before. I'd like to hear what you think of Sisters Red. The cover looks so pretty, but I'm a little hesitant.

    On my blog, you asked me about the book covers I get, and my answer is: mostly US, however sometimes I prefer the UK covers so I opt for them instead...or in the way of contests it's all just a big surprise! Australia does get their own covers some of the time, but they take TOO LONG to release, and it's not worth the wait anyway.
