In My Mailbox #14

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a great way to showcase the books you've gotten over the week, whether they are bought, borrowed or free.

Here's what's in my mailbox this week...
Ruined - Paula Morris

I'm still on my book buying ban. This has been my best week yet. I was really, really good and was able to resist tempation. Ok, to be honest, I spent my book money on some much needed new shirts this week. Haha!  But still, I didn't buy any books, and the one above came from the library. So Yay me!  AND, I'm getting a Lot of reading done lately, so Yay me again. :)

What's in your mailbox this week?? Leave a comment with your link so I can check it out!

    Oh, a book buying ban... good thing I don't have too many books on my shelf waiting for me, so no need for a ban for me (yet). :D

  9. What a pretty cover! I've not heard of this one before, but it's definitely one i would pick up with a lovely/creepy cover like that. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it.

  10. Ah, the dreaded book buying ban - I lift it once a month to get the new books everybody talks about but I try to stick to it for the other three weeks of the month lol
    The cover of ruined looks pretty, very haunting. I'm looking forward to your review :)

  11. Ooo I've never heard of this book before but the cover is gorgeous! I wish I could say I had as much self-restraint as you :P I totally cracked and bought a book! Oh well my addiction is a work in progress! Nice IMM :)

  12. Yay for being good! I've never even tried to go on a book buying ban...I would fail miserably. :)

    Your blog looks great!

  13. Good for you on your book buying ban! I could never place myself on one to be honest! I don't think I overbuy books anyway. I usually have a list of releases that I have to have, and then there are always a few books here and there that I end up buying as well! Thank goodness for my savings account! Now I just need to find a job so I can buy more! But the time off does allow me reading time!

    Here's my IMM

    Happy Reading!

  15. Ruined sounds great!! Just added it to my pile of books that I want to read (which seems to be forever growing since I started blogging in earnest)! I'm not complaining though, as I have learnt about some really great books that I would otherwise never have known about! Hope you enjoy Ruined! (And well done for managing to keep to your book buying ban!)

    Love your new blog look!! :)

  17. I haven't head about this one before but the cover looks intriguing!

    I've been trying to be on a bit of a self imposed book buying ban as well!

  18. I put books in my B&N cart and then move them around, leave the page, come back a few days later and do the same thing. Sometimes just playing with them is enough to keep me okay...but sometimes I do hit checkout and then it's over. :)

  19. Congratulations on sticking to your book buying ban! I need to to do that so that I can finally lower my TBR mountain. But so many good books comes out and I have no willpower. My mailboxes are at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  23. Love, Love, Love the changes to you blog. It makes me think of spring :-)

    Just added this to my TBR list. Sounds great. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Is it my imagination, or have you changed your blog more than once recently? It looks great--but I could have sworn you'd only just changed the header.

    Sucks about the book ban, but honestly, I think they're a good thing if they send people back to the library.

  32. Ruined by Paula Morris is one of my favorite YA books, also one of the first I started reading when I started reading YA again. I guess you could say it inspired me. She's got a new book coming out soon.
