IMM #1: 9.11.11

In My Mailbox 9.11.11 (Debut IMM!)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm...including most of the ones for the readathon. Heck, I still have reviews from earlier this YEAR about books that I enjoyed but don't remember well enough to review accurately anymore such as RED GLOVE by Holly Black and DARK MIRROR by M.J. Putney. That's why I like these videos!

  1. Great haul! I've had Seven Tears into the Sea on hold from the library FOREVER but the only copy they have was lost. :/

    I hope you enjoy your books! :)

  7. Back from Florida. Good haul of books. I didn't get much this week in the way of books. I know what you mean by being behind in reviews. Old follower saying hello.

  8. EEeep! I LOVE your mailbox. Touch of Frost was fun, I thought. It touches on a lot of the lesser-known gods and goddesses, which I thought was neat.

    Plain Kate and The Princess Curse are both Special Shelf books for me! I hope you love them as much as I do :) (Get ready to CRY with Plain Kate!)
