In My Mailbox #8

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  Share what you've acquired over the past week (or so), whether it be something you received for review, were gifted, won, or something you purchased.

I really wanted to share all of my Black Friday Half Price Books haul with you guys, so this is sort of a continuation of yesterday's IMM post.  So if you didn't see my post yesterday, and you're curious what else I got, check it out here!  Either way, here is another video for you all, in which I say the words "batch," "which" and "really" a lot.

So, to recap from the video, or if you aren't watching the video but still want to know what I'm sharing today, here's the list...


Kathleen:  The Celtic Knot by Siobhan Parkinson
Standing in the Light: The Captive Diary of Catharine Carey Logan by Mary Pope Osborne
Dreams in the Golden Country: The Diary of Zipporah Feldman, A Jewish Immigrant Girl by Kathryn Lasky
Sparks by Laura Bickle
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Enchanter by Sara Douglass
The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares
Girls in Pants by Ann Brashares
Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares

So that's it for Part the Second of my Black Friday purchases; tune in later on this week for the next of them! Did you get anything this past week?  Let me know in the comments, and feel free to leave a link to your IMM post if you have one!


  1. Oh, I love your IMM! :) Great books! I'm not familiar with most of them so I'll need to check them out on Goodreads.

    And thank you, I love it already :) Well, an ipad might be better if you want to use it for other things, not just reading. The reason why I got this one is that I don't like reading on my laptop = an LCD screen was out of question for me. :)

  2. I'm not familiar with most of these and will need to take a closer look at them on GR. I hope you enjoy them :-)

  3. Haven't heard of those but hope you like em all!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. I completely missed all of the Black Friday sales - it's not really A Thing for us in the UK so it didn't occur to me to go and look. I can't believe what good deals you got though!

    I've seen mixed reviews of A Great and Terrible Beauty so I can't wait to see which side you'll land on.

  5. Ooh I LOVED the Traveling Pants series!! <3

  7. You have so many cool books this week, Colleen!! YAY for awesome book sales LOL! ;) I remember watching the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies when they first came out (with my older sister, of course!) and I LOVED them! They're so sweet -- and I'll bet the books are too! :)

    Awesome mailbox this week, Colleen! I hope you love all of your books!

  8. Lots of great books! And I thought I was the only one who hadn't read A Great and Terrible Beauty. Happy reading!

  9. I LOVED A Great and Terrible Beauty, Hope you enjoy them all and Thanks for stopping by! :)

  10. Great Haul! I really need to read A Great and Terrible Beauty! It sounds amazing! Hope you enjoy it!
    Happy Reading!
