In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a post where we talk about the books we received during the week either for review, from the bookstore or anywhere else.
This week was relatively slow book wise. I didn't get anything in the mail but I did buy two books. So here's what I got this week:
- The Alchemyst by Michael Scott (Delacorte Press May 22, 2007) - Like I so often do, I went to the bookstore just to browse and one of the employees came up and asked if I needed any recommendations. As it turned out this was the only book she recommended to me that I hadn't already read or didn't already own. So I decided I would pick it up and see what it's all about.
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner (Delacorte Press October 6, 2009) - I absolutely love dystopian books and this is one I haven't picked up yet. I've heard nothing but good things about this series and I look forward to reading it and discovering a new dystopian world.
Thankfully, I didn't add too much to my TBR pile this week. And unless I get books for review or from contests I hopefully won't be adding more myself. My roommate has challenged me to not buy any books for the next month, mostly because it has gotten to the point that she is reading some of my TBR books before I even get to them. We'll see how it goes. Maybe because it's not just me putting myself on a book buying ban but someone challenging me not to buy anything I'll actually stick with it.
That's it for me this week!
