... in books

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

This week, as some of you read on my Twitter account, I went a bit book crazy…what else is new?

On Wednesday I had some time during lectures and went to a bookstore, left it after 90 minutes and had bought some new books.

One I gave to a friend right away. Do you remember my good friend who just got a baby boy? 

We met on Wednesday afternoon and because I have the reputation of being complete bookaholics, I thought that this little bundle of joy needs a book as well. So he got his first picture book. I know it is a wee bit to early for him to appreciate it but I wanted to be the first. I forgot to take a picture of the book so I am not able to show it to you but it was a small one with pictures of lions, cars, etc. in it. You know what I mean, right?

All the other books were for me :)

My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
a wonderful story about a high school kid who regularly makes wrong decisions and starts a blog to let the world wide web decide what she should do…hilarious

There is a book trailer for this novel too:

Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel
I read City of Bones and I have City of Ashes and City of Glass at home and I just needed the Infernal Device series as well. I behaved myself a bit there because I only bought the first book and not both.

Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan
Sweets! Do I NEED to say more?

Mike Gayle’s The Stag and Hen Weekend
I love Mike Gayle’s books. They are so entertaining and unpredictable. I love it when a book does not have the ending you expect or if it is so entertaining that you don’t think about how it might end. If you haven’t read a Mike Gayle you should definitely do so!

The Boyfriend Bylaws by Susan Hatler
A girl who is not so successful in being in a relationship lets her best friend direct her love life. Sound like a fun read to me.


  1. Enjoy A Clockwork Angel! That's a beautiful baby boy there!
