In My Mailbox (17) / Stacking the Shelves (11)

In My Mailbox (hosted by The Story Siren, temporarily at The Mod Podge Bookshelf) and Stacking the Shelves (hosted by Tynga’s Reviews) are weekly memes in which bloggers share the books they buy, borrow, and receive.

Borrowed:

Fruits Basket, Vol. 6 by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, Vol. 7 by Natsuki Takaya — I love Fruits Basket so much. I actually watched the anime before I started the manga. It’s good. And Hatori is on the cover of this volume. He’s my favorite. Does anyone else like Fruits Basket?

What If… Everyone Knew Your Name by Liz Ruckdeschel and Sarah James — Asti posted this on her blog, A Bookish Heart, and I almost died. I’ve been trying to find a grown up Choose Your Own Adventure type thing for sooo long. πŸ˜€

Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt — Already started this one. I’m not too far in, but it’s good so far.

Being Henry David by Cal Armistead

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach

I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern

Led Zeppelin: The Oral History of the World’s Greatest Rock Band by Barney Hoskyns — I know this has basically nothing to do with my blog, but I love Led Zeppelin, so I thought I’d include it in the post. Anyone else like Zeppelin? Let’s chat.

Won:

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike (via Epic Reads) — I’ve already started this one as well. I think I’m about half way through right now. I’m not, like, Β in love with it, but I like it.

Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson (via smartfolksread)

Rebel Heart by Moira Young (via smartfolksread)– I haven’t read the first book of this series. Oops.

Bought:

The Diviners by Libba Bray — I read this book in December and January (review) and loved it. I also fell in love with the book design. Not just the cover design, but the type and formatting and the pages… et cetera. I’m a total sucker for book art/design.

Sorry for the poor quality photos. I had originally recorded a video and changed my mind, so I just used my computer to take photos real quick.

  1. I’ve not heard of many of them, but I see you’ve gotten some ARC’s there πŸ˜€ I’m excited to hear about Life After Theft, Aprilynne Pike!

    1. Yes, I’ve heard the same. Going Vintage is pretty good so far. I loved The Diviners. I definitely recommend it if you like Paranormal or Historical Fiction.

  2. Hi Lisa. You got some great books this week. I hope you like Strands of Bronze and Gold! πŸ™‚
